With fans, even stars, waking up as early as 4 am and watching early shows, all with paal abhishekams and firecrackers, it goes without saying that this film is all set to supersede its contender Ajith’s Viswasam. Here are some of the reactions that people had for this touted blockbuster!
Director Karthik Subbaraj took the time out to thank everybody.
One sincere request: PLS DONT SHARE FILM CLIPS FROM THEATRE.. PLS DONT REVEAL THE STORY… Let everybody #GetRajinified like you did!! 🙏😊
