This weekend, the focus was on a megastar, Rajinikanth's Annaatthe, a multi-cop franchise by a successful director, Sooryavanshi, and the multi-superhero international venture, Eternals. Amid these big names, OTT platforms still haven't lost their charm as star-studded film Meenakashi Sundareshwar too released on Friday. Unlike the grand celebrations at some theatres to mark the release of the aforementioned biggies, this romantic comedy was released on Netflix. 

Many watched the movie on the first day itself and took to Twitter to share their views. The Sanya Malhotra and Abhimanyu Dassani-starrer was loved by many viewers, but some, especially those hailing from Tamil Nadu, seemed to have a problem with it.

Meenakshi Sundareshwar Twitter review

Meenakshi Sundareshwar was praised with terms like 'Lovely movie with beautiful message', 'must watch', 'what a movie', 'beautiful film', 'sweet film' and more.

One netizen pointed out the arranged marriage setting depicted in the movie and of the ups and downs of their relationship. Another liked the 'nice story' and felt the characters were relatable. The direction by Vivek Soni, cinematography by Debojeet Ray and the background score too found a mention with Soni being credited by one for making the film a 'winner.' 

Sanya Malhotra was praised too, with words like 'glowing star', 'earnest performance' and one praised her expressions. Abhimanyu, who is the son of Maine Pyar Kiya actress Bhagyashree, impressed some with terms like 'extraordinary work' and made one netizen his fan, while another felt he was 'on his way to stardom.'

However, some Tamilians were unhappy. The movie is set in Tamil Nadu and traces the story of two persons belonging to Tamil-speaking families. One wrote that it did not even 'offend well' and was a 'joke' on all fronts. Another pointed out the 'stereotypes" galore and also spoke of the 'slow pace' an 'odd tangents.'

"Can you stop making movies based on Tamilians or any south Indians for that matter? If you can't freaking do it the right way don't do it man! We have had enough of your stereotypical portrayal already!" was another comment. 

Another hit out at the stereotypes like being a Rajinikanth fan, applying sandalwood paste on the forehead and more. The pronunciations and talking style of the characters did not please some Tamilians.  Have a look:
