Acclaimed filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon is on a high after watching Chekka Chivandha Vaanam. No sooner he saw the film, Gautham Menon tweeted, ‘Mani sir& his brilliant ensemble cast set the screens on fire with a bold new character sketch in cinema for each of the characters.

A master craftsman at work& it’s almost like he’s having fun etching out hard hitting content& throwing all rules out the window! CCV-RUSH (for it). Str is honest& real, Arun is edgy flamboyant, VS is fun, local & raw, Jyotika is intense and makes it look so easy, Arvind is powerhouse and is in one of the best fight sequences seen in Tamil cinema in a long while and ARR freaks out on the score. CCV is trippy’.

Directed by Mani Ratnam, the movie hit the screens today and saw special shows across cinema halls at 5 am.
