Aadukalam is making headlines for all the right reasons. Rajini watched the uncut version of the movie, without CG work, and was seen very impressed with the output before a couple of months. Now with the film ready for release it was time for Rajini, his daughter, Dhanush's family, including Selvaraghavan, to watch the theatre copy at the Four Frames preview theatre in Chennai.
A very satisfied Rajini, after the movie, told sources that Aadukalam is a 'pucca' commercial movie but with international quality. He also said that the movie would give Dhanush the break to take him to the next level. "Aadukalam is for Dhanush as was Mullum Malarum to me at that time", said Rajini commenting on the work of Dhanush and Vetrimaran.
