Enraged Twitter users took their Twitter handles to share reviews of the movie and called out the makers for the ‘cringe-fest. A Twitter user wrote: “Meenakshi Sundareshwar is cringe as expected but why is that boy asking everyone about his ‘father in lungi’ when he is wearing a mundu? You would think K Jo would atleast get that right after ALL these years.”

Another angry netizen tweeted, “Dear Hindi film industry people, as a self-respecting Tamizhan, I request you to stop trying to represent us with your stupid a** movies and your stereotypical notions of who Tamilians are. We still have a horrible hangover with your Lungi dance. Thank you. #MeenakshiSundareshwar.”
