Vetrimaaran's latest film "Visaranai" has opened to positive reviews from critics, audience and celebrities. Now, the latest person to sing praises of the Tamil flick is none other than AR Murugadoss.

After watching "Visaranai" at a special screening, the filmmaker took to Twitter to praise the film. He wrote: "#VISARANAI - an OUTSTANDING film!!! (sic)" The good words from the filmmaker are expected to boost the collection of the flick. Apart from AR Murugadoss, big names like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Mani Ratnam have also praised the film. 

Like AR Murugadoss, Kamal Haasan applauded the film on Twitter. He posted: "@ikamalhaasan Praising Vetrimaran's movie VisaaraNai only in Tamil is limiting an International film to parochial borders. A must watch. (sic)"

"Visaranai" is based on a novel titled "Lock Up", penned by M Chandrakumar. The film narrates the story of the author when he was arrested on false charges along with his three other friends. How the people in authority completely misuse power and physically torture poor boys to admit to a crime they never committed form the crux of the story.

Dhanush has produced "Visaranai", which has Dinesh, Anandhi, Aadukalam Murugadoss, Samuthirakani, Kishore, Mishal Ghoshal and others in the cast. The film has GV Prakash Kumar's music, S Ramalingam's cinematography and late Kishore Te's editing.

The good subject and brilliant screenplay backed by extraordinary performance by the cast in "Visaranai" have impressed the audience.

"Visaranai" has done good business at the box office. It has raked in Rs 38.88 lakh from 153 shows in Chennai. The positive word of mouth seems to have boosted the collection of the Tamil film.
