One of the film buffs has said that a mere announcement has given him goosebumps, and he is wondering what would happen if makers come up with the trailer. The announcement video has Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi and Aishwarya Rai appearing in it. Someone has pointed out Trisha's absence in it and has expressed displeasure.
While some of them have appreciated the clever move of makers to release the sequel sooner, there are a few who have started predicting its box office prospects. The first part grossed more than 400 crores, and this time many are expecting it to gross no less than 500 crores.

A few of them rooted for Vikram's Aditha Karikalan and Karthi's Vanthiyathevan, while some others said they can't wait to watch Trisha as Kundavai and Aishwarya as Nandini. Fans of Ravi's Rajaraja Cholan, too, weren't far behind.
