It's well known that Vetrimaaran's Asuran is based on Poomani's acclaimed novel 'Vekkai'. After watching Asuran, Poomani has interacted with the media and appreciated the film.
"I watched 'Asuran' today. Vetrimaaran has wonderfully adapted 'Vekkai' to the big screen. To be honest, I think there is a scarcity for good stories in the film industry so adapting novels is one way to provide unique content", said Poomani.
Though Vetrimaaran has adapted 'Vekkai', he has also made a few changes. For example, the aunt character which is quite popular in the novel is not there in the film and there are a lot of changes in the flashback episode too but the core theme of the film and main characters remain unchanged.
