Mersal

Tamil Cinema and Tamilnadu politics are pretty interconnected. The heroes there pitch their political stand through the character they play and that’s why we have seen many heroes playing the same old savior of the public kind of roles in all the main stream masala films.

Karuppan

Karuppan had posters and promos that somewhat capitalized on the politically sensational Jallikattu issue.
