Following the commercial success of Thuppakki and Kaththi, actor Vijay and filmmaker A.R Murugadoss have teamed up for the third time in upcoming political action-thriller Sarkar. The film’s first look and title were revealed last week on the occasion of Vijay’s birthday on June 22. While the title and the first poster were released on the eve of his birthday on June 21, two more posters were released the next day as a birthday gift to his fans. The film’s shooting is progressing at breakneck speed and as announced earlier, the makers recently reconfirmed that the film is on track for Diwali release. Sun Pictures is bankrolling the film on a lavish budget.
According to the industry grapevine, the shoot of Sarkar will very soon shift to Las Vegas where the team is believed to shoot the introductory song of Vijay. It is also being rumoured that the film stars Vijay as a US-returned character who vows to bring about change in his society. Veteran actor Radha Ravi is tipped to be playing the antagonist in the film. Keerthy Suresh has rejoined hands with Vijay after last year’s Bairavaa. The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, Prem Kumar and Yogi Babu.
A.R Rahman has been officially signed to compose music for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini. Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, is cranking the camera. National award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film. All eyes are on Sarkar as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay’s best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and it naturally has built high anticipation around their next project. Sarkar is set for box-office clash with Suriya’s NGK, which is also confirmed to hit the screens this Diwali.
Prashanth one of the prominent reviewer of the town, bashed the strategy of Sun network which earlier demanded fans to watch and answer the questions of the TV serials to attend the audio launch of “SARKAR” film.
Now at the release of the single song “Simtangaran” , for first few minutes the song only streamed in Sun NXT app and then it streamed it Youtube as usual. In a note of condemning the strategy of Sun Nxt, Prashanth wrote “Hi
@SunTV – Trying to sell Sun Next app by forcing the user to listen to Sarkar song is the worst marketing strategy you can come up with. Please think about better ways to push the app.”
Thank you @ThameensFilms and @shibuthameens anna – For not calling any tracker to remove any tweet, for not threatening any Media Company to remove any video, for being a gentle man and accepting the genuine criticism about #SaamySquare . I wish nothing but success to u !

Check out some of the reactions from his followers :
It’s cross promotions for their products @itisprashanth what’s the problem ? They don’t even sold audio rights to any one. Own content. It’s free, nothing is wrong & compulsory

I don’t see anything wrong here. People release songs on Saavn first only to make the app popular. You don’t complain that. You are happy with that. Strategy is theirs. Accepting or not is your wish. Cannot blame them for that is my point.

It’s their movie , their app , their money ! He can market however he wants to ! If you don’t like it , wait for an hour and watch it in YouTube or other social platforms. It’s same as you marketing various things in your videos ! I think it’s absolutely fair !
