Ramya, a local said who turned up way before the scheduled time was also among those in the queue. She said, "We are here for the 6 am show. Diwali or no Diwali, Thalaiva's movie is no less than a festival. It is a Diwali treat for us."

Another enthusiastic fan, Ganesh, said that he is an ardent follower of Rajinikanth. "It has released on Diwali and there is no bigger happiness for us than this. It is a big treat for us. Even amid COVID-19, people are here for the 6 am show. I'm glad. After a long time, the movie is being released. It is a gift for us. Without his movie, a festival is incomplete," he said.

The action-drama's release has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
