Mersal, Just A Mere Masala Entertainer?

  • 24 Apr 2018

One might say that Mersal is the usual ‘boiler plate’ that serves the contemporary Kollywood Masala with Thalapathy Vijay as it’s main course. 

However in a ‘algorithmic’ age where numbers speak louder than anything else, let us just take a peek into the number of records and accolades that this so called usual run in the mills has created...

  • The most liked movie teaser in the world. Within Hours of it’s release, the teaser gained close to 697K likes.
  • 5 million views within 5 hours of the teaser release.
  • The fastest teaser to achieve 5 million views in India. This feat was achieved within 19 hours of the teaser release.
  • The film completed it’s 100th day theatrical run on 25th Jan 2018 which is an astronomical feat by itself in Tamil Nadu in a time when piracy is rampant.
  • The film won the Best Actor, Best Music Director, Best Playback Singer, Best Costume Designer and Talk of the town from the Annual Ananda Vikatan Cinema Awards.
  • The film won the Best Foreign Film from the National Film Awards UK

Needless to say for those ever Sceptical Non-Thalapathy Fans and Vijay hatters, this might even be ‘Too Good To Be True’ thus they have an opportunity to judge the movie for themselves. Watch the movie on ABOM Thangathirai (Ch 241) until mid-May.

We can only say, 'see it for yourselves and judge it'...
