The countdown has begun for the release of Mugamoodi. The movie has been in the news for one or the other reason. With less than 72 hours for its release, the booking has started getting massive response from netizens and heading towards to have a big opening on August 31.
Mugamoodi is releasing in over 500 screens in Tamil Nadu. It is also hitting screens in neighbouring states in good number of screens. The makers of the film are also releasing it in different parts of India including Delhi and Mumbai. The film is hitting the screens simultaneously in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, UK, Canada, US and other parts of the world.
The movie has attracted the attention of the audience for many reasons but the prime reason is the look and feel of the movie. The masked avatar of Jeeva has made the cine-goers to draw comparisons between Mugamoodi and Hollywood superhero flicks. But the makers of the film have requested the audience not to compare rather enjoy it in the Indian context. UTV South Chief, Dhananjayan Govind tweeted, "The movie is made from Indian context for our Tamil audience. Pls do not compare with Hollywood superhero movies with magical powers."
"The base of #Mugamoodi is on Kung Fu martial art & no gadget or magical power employed. You will love da film if your expectation is correct," he further added. However, it has to be noted here that some of the well-known technicians have worked for this movie.
Tony Leung, who had directed stunts in Bruce Lee starrer Dragon, has trained Jeeva, Narain and Selva in a martial arts called Wing Chun. And also Gaebriella Wilkins, the costume designer of Disney land, has designed the special suit of Jeeva in Mugamoodi.
