The film's official title was celebrated by fans all over Tamil
Nadu and even many celebrities had expressed their liking towards
the quirky title.
However, not everyone are happy with the title of Vijay's 59th
movie. A film-maker named Sathish Kumar has come forward to convey
his disappointment with the team of Theri.
According to him, he had registered the title in question, three
months ago. He has also claimed that he zeroed in on the title,
after putting in a lot of thought.
What more, he has accused the team of Theri, of foul
play. Alleging that the makers of Theri manipulated
the register book in order to make it look like they had registered
the title first, Sathish has claimed that the register book is
"under their control".
He has also said that he will not take the matter to court and
that he himself would've granted the permission for them to use the
title, had they asked him beforehand.
It is to be noted that Theri is funded by
Kalaipuli S Thanu, a notable personality in Tamil film
