Thalapathy Vijay’s father S.A.Chandrasekhar, in a recent TV interview, slammed Beast director Nelson Dilipkumar. He said that the film relies on the stellar strength of Vijay and the screenplay is not like that. S.A.Chandrasekhar added that the beast will definitely make a record at the box office, but there is no magic in the screenplay.
Beast, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, released in theatres on April 13. In box office collection wise, Despite doing wonders, it has received mixed reviews from critics and viewers alike. S.A.Chandrasekhar was interviewed by a Tamil TV channel in which he expressed his disappointment over his
son’s recently released Beast film. He pointed out that the film beast rides only on Vijay’s star power.
He said, “I enjoyed Arabic Kuthu like a die-hard fan would. But, Beast relied solely on Vijay’s stardom. The film was a serious subject about international terrorist organisations. There should be magic in the screenplay. Where is it? The director has to study how would be the military functions. He should know how a RAW agent behaves. That was missing.”
S.A.Chandrasekar also added, “There’s no doubt that Beast will become a hit. However, the film worked because of a music director, a fight master, a dance master, an editor and a hero.” He refrained from mentioning director Nelson’s name.
