The event was attended by prominent personalities of the Malayalam film industry.

Prithviraj, who spoke about the video during the function, was mighty impressed with the same.
Prithviraj went on to heap praises on Priyadarshan and the aesthetics displayed in the video. "I am (not) surprised by the sheer aesthetics of it, because it's after all Priyan sir's film. When he's pulling off a film on such a scale, as a Priyadarshan fan this is what I expect. But the thing is, this footage is of a Malayalam movie. So, sir, thank you for teaching us to dream big, and I am selfishly wishing that this film becomes a global hit because only when such movies become landmark hits, actors and directors like us can dream bigger," he was quoted as saying by the Times Of India.
Meanwhile, social media is abuzz about the footage that was shown during the show. All those who saw the sneak peek of Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham, are simply awestruck and are eagerly awaiting for the movie's release. Reportedly, the post-production works of the film are progressing.
