Chandi Veeran is a 2015 Tamil movie directed by A. Sarkunam and produced by director Bala. The film features Atharvaa and Anandhi in the leading roles, while Lal essays a supporting role.
The film began production in June 2014, with Bala opting to fund a film to be directed by Sarkunam starring Atharvaa in the lead role. Despite early reports that the film would be titled Puzhudhi Parakkum Ooru, the makers denied the claim. The film progressed without a title till January 2015, when the team christened the project as Chandi Veeran. Bala sold the film to Sri Green Productions thereafter, after the film was completed and the third schedule was finished at Rajapalayam, mannarkudi and Alathur ).
Baradwaj Rangan called Chandi Veeran a “disappointingly generic drama”. The Times of India gave 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, “The problem is that the film cannot find its tone and so, the narration suffers. The filmmaking, too, lacks grace, with hurried camerawork and choppy editing that make the film visually inelegant. We never see the confident Sarkunam of Kalavani and Vaagai Sooda Vaa.” Sify wrote, “Though the intention…to convey a message on water scarcity and nonviolence is laudable, the film is too preachy and loud with an abrupt comedy ending…Chandi Veeran is yet another half baked movie from Sarkunam”.
In contrast, Rediff wrote, “at just under two hours, with a decent plot, some good performances and great visuals, director Sarkunam’s Chandi Veeran is worth a watch”. Indiaglitz wrote, “The film is definitely worth your time and money for presenting a vital issue in a largely engaging manner”.
