Veerappu is a remake of the yesteryear Malayalam hit Spatigam. Debutante director Badri has directed the film. Director turned hero Sundar C has proved his capability to act in “heavier” roles. The film is based on the kind of behaviour a father should not have and that a son should have.
"Entha Kuzhanthaiyum Nalla Kuzhanthaithan Mannil Pirakkayile...Avan Nallavanaavathum Theeyavanaavathum Annai Valarpathiley..." is a famous song from one of the late legend MGR's film in 70's. It is also Veerappu’s tag line.
