Suriya's "Anjaan", which has received mixed reviews from the critics and the audience, has fetched some positive feedback from actor-comedian Vivek.
The actor has stated that "Anjaan" is very sleek and entertaining. He also said that a film should not be condemned without any due reasons and insisted that "Anjaan" team's hard work should be appreciated.
"Saw Anjaan. itz now sleek n entertaining.good.plz don't condemn a film without due reasons!hard work of them shd b appreciated @dirlingusamy," Vivek tweeted.
"Most of them who arrogantly abusing a film, saw it in the net or pirated cd.using media n stopping others 4m seeing also a cypher crime.
Views of public at large are the final judgement. One shd bow to them. We can comment but need not b hostile. Thank u one n all," he said.
"Anjaan", directed by Lingusamy, hit the screens on 15 August. Despite receiving mixed reviews, the film took a thunderous opening owing to the Independence Day long weekend and advance booking. The gangster flick reportedly minted more than ₹30 crore in its opening weekend at the worldwide box office, according to the film's producers.
The Telugu version of the film titled "Sikindar" also took a good opening, but witnessed drops on the second and third day owing to poor reviews.
The film received flak for its weak script as well as its lengthy runtime. Following the feedback, the makers trimmed the Suriya starrer by 20 minutes. They had removed Brahmanandam's comedy portions from the Tamil version, while the Telugu version reportedly remains unchanged.
"Anjaan" is said to be a typical revenge drama, which has mass elements. It stars Samantha opposite Suriya, while Dalip Tahil, Vidyut Jamwal, Soori and Manoj Bajpai are also part of the cast.
The action entertainer has music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the composer received appreciation for the film's background scores. The cinematography has been handled by Santhosh Sivan, while the editing was done by Anthony.
The film is jointly produced by Thirrupathi Brothers and UTV Motion Pictures.
