Tamil drama Visaaranai has got the thumbs up from the superstar himself -- Rajinikanth says the film will be one of the best films in world cinema. “I have never seen a movie like Visaaranai in Tamil. This will be one of the best movies in world cinema,” Rajinikanth posted on his Twitter page. The actor is currently shooting for his film Kabali.
Inspired from real events, the film is based on a Tamil novel called Lock Up, and deals with police brutality and abuse of power. The book was penned by M Chandrakumar, who was an auto-rickshaw driver.
The film, which is jointly produced by Vetrimaaran and Dhanush, releases in cinemas on Friday. It stars Dinesh, Samuthirakani, Kishore and Murugadoss in important roles. Directed by National Award winning filmmaker Vetrimaaran, the film had its world premiere at Venice International Film Festival last year.
