ProductionEdit

It was announced in 2007 that Sundar C. will team up with Sakthi Chidambaram for an action comedy film. During the launch, the film was initially titled as Porukki,[1] however as the title was said to be derogatory, the titles like Adhirudhula and Mahamagam[2] were considered before the team preferred to name the film as Sandai.[3][4]

ReceptionEdit

Rediff called it "illogical" and stated that "Just suspend all logic and reason before settling for this age-old mother-in-law/son-in-law battle movies on the lines of Poova Thalaiya and Mappillai."[6] Behindwoods wrote "You need no introduction to the Shakthi Chidambaram brand of cinema- he makes movies purely for entertainment and most often they work. This time the director who had formerly specialized in Sathyaraj starrers has teamed up with Sundar C to provide Sandai."[7] Sify wrote "Here is regressive piece of kitsch, with over-the-top loud performances. The plot degenerates into a farce in the second half of this tedious film as it tumbles to an all?s-well-that- concludes-well end".[8]
