Superstar Rajinikanth, who is currently shooting for his film Kabali, has lauded forthcoming Tamil drama Visaranai. He said the film will be one of the best movies in world cinema.
"I have never seen a movie like 'Visaranai' in Tamil. This will be one of the best movies in world cinema," the Enthiran actor posted on his official social networking page.
Vetrimaaran responded quickly by saying, "Your wish has made our film bigger than it actually is. Thank you sir."
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 is an auto-rickshaw driver.
The film, which is jointly produced by Vetrimaaran and Dhanush, releases in cinemas this Friday (5th February).
It stars 'Attakathi' Dinesh, Samuthirakani, Kishore and 'Aadukalam' Murugadoss in important roles.
Directed by National Award winning film-maker Vetrimaaran, the film had its world premiere at Venice International Film Festival last year.
