On his film, RJ Balaji is reported to have told, â€śThe first thing I decided was that it shouldnâ€™t be a spoof film. I wanted to tell a story. The film is the journey of Lalgudi Karuppaiah Gandhi, a small-time politician. And there is definitely a takeaway in this film. I have provided a solution to our political issues.â€ť
In his message to the hard core movie buffs, he had said, â€śI request everyone to see my film, and rip it apart if they feel so, because this is a product on which they spend their money. Also, I donâ€™t want people to criticise me only in a constructive way. Everyone has their own style and tone, so they can criticise in whatever manner they want to.â€ť
