“Jigarthanda Double X” is a Kurunji flower (Strobilanthes kunthiana that blooms once very twelve years in the Western Ghats). Amazing work by Karthik Subpuraj, different story and plot. New scenes that cinema fans have never seen before. It makes us wonder if Lawrence can act like this. SJ Surya is the go to actor of today. He aptly mixes villainy, comedy and character and he is amazing. My special compliments to the producer for making this film so grand. The tribes in the film are not acting, they are living. Elephants have also acted in competition with the actors. Vidhu who has acted as Chetani deserves to be praised more than anyone else. Wonderful.”
About his ‘Petta’ director “Karthik Subbaraj makes people clap in this film. He is amazing. Makes you think. Makes you cry. I am proud of Karthik Subburaj. My warmest wishes,â Rajinikanth said in his statement.
