Vijay's Sarkar, which released on November 7 has made the ruling dispensations see red.
Sarkar, released in over 3000 screens around the world, has earned a gross collection of approximately $145,000 just from the premiere shows in the USA and the number, after the first day is expected to only go up. Further, the scene is instigating the people to resort to violence against the government as mentioned in the complaint. According to the reports, the film even had marathon shows in some of the centres in the state. He said he will consult the Chief Minister, Edapaddi Palaniswami about taking action. Ticket New tweeted that Sarkar is the first movie to simultaneously release in 5 continents, 80 countries and more than 1200 global screens across the globe.
Vijay's Sarkar movie that got released 2 days back received poor reviews from critics in Telugu as well as in Tamil. Jayalalithaa's fans claim scenes showing mixers and fans being set on fire are an obvious reference to her announcing freebies during election campaigns in 2011. "We will continue to protest outside theatres till the controversial scenes and dialogues are removed", said AIADMK lawmaker, Rajan Chellappa.
Sarkar had previously run into trouble with writer Varun Rajendran who alleged that the story of the film was copied from his work Sengol. Directed by Atlee, "Mersal" was slammed by the Tamil Nadu section of the Bhartiya Janata Party over a few scenes in the movie which reportedly take a dig at demonetisation, the Goods and Services Tax and the Digital India initiative.
