The much awaited thriller Doctor featuring Sivakarthikeyan is finally out on big screens. Helmed by Nelson Dilipkumar, the movie is opening to favourable reviews that are appreciated by fans and critics alike. On the other hand, it is also facing backlash from women organizations over a particular scene in the movie that seems to derogate women.

A latest report of ETimes suggests that the much-appreciated Sivakarthikeyan starrer is not getting favourable reviews from women organizations for a particular scene in the movie. It features a man who cross-dresses like a woman with a nightgown and flowers in hair as a sign of defeat after losing a bet-game. This part of the movie didn’t go down well with organizations who went on to protest against it. The team of Doctor is currently facing a speed-bump due to this ordeal. An official statement on this is yet to be addressed by the Maan Karate star Nelson Dilipkumar.

Here is the latest sneak peek from Doctor. 

On a lighter note, the team is being showered with positive feedback, appreciation and overwhelming responses on Doctor and its storyline. We also get to see Sivakarthikeyan in a new avatar - as a no-nonsense, brooding and immaculate doctor. Its hilarious and witty dialogues and fast-paced thrilling sequences have been well-appreciated by its viewers.

Backed by KJR Studios in association with SK Productions is out in all centres and is also expected to get a decent box-office collection, in-spite of the fifty per cent occupancy in theatres. Doctor also features Priyanka Arul Mohan, Vinay Rai, Yogi Babu and Archana among others in pivotal roles.

The film is expected to drop on the digital platform of SunNxt, although its release date is yet to be confirmed.
