Interestingly, Dhanush officially said it was the fastest shoot of his career at just four months old.
Themes for reflection
Karthik Subbaraj, the director and co-writer, started out by making a film about gangsters, armed against each other. Over the course of the film, he also explores the idea of the house and what it means for each of us. It also discusses the treatment of xenophobia and the constantly changing cultural environments. It will be quite interesting to see how that plays out in the movie.
