Thala Ajith starrer Nerkonda Paarvai, a remake of Amitabh Bachchan's 2016 Hindi film, Pink is all set to release on August 8th. The Tamil film has created an immense buzz among the moviegoers. Meanwhile, the makers of the film hosted a special screening for the critics and celebrities from the film industry. However, the reviews by the Tamil critics has sparked outrage on social media. The three online reviewers of a popular Tamil YouTube channel reviewed the film after watching the press show of the Ajith starrer and they are extremely distasteful. 

Cinema Express quoted one of the reviewers saying, "Considering the three women in the film are seemingly from an upper class, we don't quote feel sympathetic to their plight. They go to pubs, they drink, they talk about losing their virginity very early in their lives, and it makes us uninterested in the injustice meted out to them. This is the film's minus point," Agreeing to this pearl of worldly wisdom, another member of the panel decodes why such a film was a success in Bollywood. "Such a culture of women going to pubs, having sex, etc... is quite normal in the North. But Tamil culture, and our way of life is drastically different, and this prevents us from feel invested or sympathetic to them. Ivangalukku enna nadandha namakkenna nu thonudhu."

Soon, celebrities from the South Indian film industry reacted to the same. Singer Chinmayi took to Twitter and expressed her anger on the same. She wrote, "The everyday misogyny and justification of ‘They asked for it’ by 3 mainstream Tamil reviewers."
