“I Know How To Make A Gangster Film Or A Don Film” -Atlee


Atlee saying that his movies are performing extremely good in box office in an interview is trending now in the micro blogging social media platform. The interview which was shot after 5 days of his movie Bigil’s release was telecasted in Sun TV. A 1 minute cut version of the 10 minute long interview is doing rounds in Twitter.

In the video Atlee says that he knows how to make a full length gangster movie by having Rayappan character alone or to make a don film by having Michael character alone. “But I intend on providing something beyond that” he says in the interview. “If we take a song like Aalaporan Tamizhan for instance, it glorified the entire Tamil ethnicity. I can’t make another song like Aalaporan Tamizhan in this film which will get into cliche zone. So we worked in a song like Singapenne.” said Atlee who further added his wish of making films in big budgets.

“The film has received 200 plus crores now. People who criticized the movie for its high budget are gone now. Today producer is happy. We have enough profit in it and he said it to me in person. This is healthy to the industry and we can make a film on higher budget in future.” the filmmaker said. A fan of actor Vijay proudly shared the video by praising him. Watch the tweet here :

However, the reactions received by this tweets are absolute contrast to the director’s statement. Many criticized the director for wasting the call sheets of high profile actors and for making the movie with high cost. Check out some of the reactions below :

Atlee is arguably one of the most loved and hated filmmaker of Tamil cinema right now. Being a former assistant of Shankar, Atlee’s way of presenting his films and the castings he choose for the characters are considered as his major qualities. All the four films of Atlee became blockbusters despite of the plagiarism controversies. His recent release “BIGIL” has reportedly collected 300 crores in the box office. The film marks the third collaboration of the duo, after “Theri” and “Mersal”.
