Amidst huge expectations, ‘Bigil’ got released worldwide on October 25. It opened to mixed reviews from the critics but that didn’t have any sort of impact on the massive opening. Director Atlee’s clever commercial packaging of a mass entertainer with a sports backdrop ensured that the film appealed not just to the fans but to the general audience as well, particularly the families.
