Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan is ruling social media and iTunes. The trailer of the film, which was launched on Sunday (March 9), has gone viral on internet as it has got more than 10 lakhs hits in just two days! But the other side of the story is that the quality of the film, despite the movie bosses requesting fans not to compare with Hollywood films, has come under scrutiny. Indeed, it has paved way for war of words between two groups.
Rajinikanth fans have overwhelmingly welcomed the trailer of
Kochadaiiyaan. They have showered praises on the video
clip and ensured that it reaches every nook and corner on internet.
On social media platforms and fans websites, they are extenstively
engaging people by doing various activites. Their sole intention is
to generate positive vibes around the film, which will hit the
screens next month 11th for the Tamil New Year.
But on the other end, there are people, who think that the
Kochadaiiyaan CGI (Computer generated imagery) quality is
poor and not up to the mark. This has lead to war of words between
Rajini fans and others, who has given thumbs down to the animation
part. Their is a fight going on between the two parties and we
bring you some of their comments.
Despite of the claims that Soundarya Ashwin made many times that
this is not a cartoon film... It is indeed Cartoon, CG films are
lot realistic than this... I don't want to downgrade the hardworks
that many legends have put in... But to be very honest... Such a
Grand Script, Grand Artists and Great Lyricists, Greatest Musician
have been dishonored.... A Hollywood director make the same script
a lot better... At least they should have consulted James Cameroon
in this case... Life of pie, Transformers, 300 were also by CG...
But no one can tell where they've used it....
Poor Quality Animation, They could have done real picture with
the same budget with real RAJINI.. As a RAJINI FAN, Want to see him
This is the first Indian film to do this type of animation.
First hollywood film to do this was POLAR EXPRESS. Compare this to
that. Kochadaiiyaan is better. But yes, the graphics could have
Graphics are poor like they are from 90's.Colors are
dull.Graphics in today's games trailers are 10x times better than
1/6th of an avg hollywood nimation movie's budget. This is all
could be expected. And yes it does look like video game cinematics
and not of a movie quality. It is however the step in the right
direction to inspire more people to take up the art in
The CGI looks like some 5 year old video game. Couldn't they get
Disney or Pixar to help?
This is an attempt to bring those wonderful movies to india.
It's a indian movie. This is not plain animation as you think and
the same applies to the so called movies around the world. There is
a lot of work done behind the scenes.

Friends pls dont discourage them.. you all encouraging Hollywood
films like Avatar and Tintin.. But u r not supporting our own
indian films... Avatar budget is 1500 crores.. Tintin budget is 800
crores but kochadaiyan is only 125 crores... Within this budget
they made this film hats off to kochadaiyan team... This team can
make better film than tintin if they have 800 crores.. But Tintin
team cant make a film in 125 crores... And all know onething, Life
of Pi film's graphics techinicians are from india so indians can do
better than hollywood if they r provided with big budget...
This goes to those who preach appreciate the effort... The
effort made should generate admiration.. if its the other way
around it just creates complacency... With such inadequacies should
they go for a full fledged movie? big stars? big composer? big
expectation? What's the director's experience in producing peer
reviewed animation like short movies or work with companies like
Pixar or Dreamworks, starting from bottom learn the trade and
tricks? All I see is a fortunate amateur graphic designer, daughter
of a GREAT artist with resources.. Im sure there better qualified
Indians to lead an animation with an eye for perfection... DONT
SETTLE BE BETTER...
