A transcript of Rajini's letter, reproduced
in English, is given below:
Never in the history of Tamil cinema has
there been a film like Naan Kadavul. Generally,
all of us know of films based on our lives,
social issues, and political problems. But
there are several issues left untouched
in this world and society. It is, therefore,
understandable that most of us would not
be aware of the underworld mafia controlling
the beggars and the life of the Agori Babas.
Bala’s efforts and talent has ensured
that these two aspects of our society are
brought on screen excellently and easily
understandable by the public. I convey my
heartfelt wishes and bow my head in saluting
this great director.
Having met several Agoris in the Himalayas
during my visits, I appreciate the body
language and acting skills of Arya. The
music scored by Ilayaraja has a horripilate
effect on me every time I hear it. The acting
of all the differently disabled actors in
the film had me literally in tears. An effort
like this in Tamil has really made me proud.
A film like this is impossible in the future.
I wish all those who were associated with
film and congratulate them.
