KV Anand revealed that Ilayathalapathy Vijay was his first choice for Anegan as he wrote the script with the actor in his mind. But unfortunately, due to his prior commitments for AR Murugadoss' Kaththi, Vijay had turned down the film. The cinematographer-turned director even mentioned that it was Vijay who had put forward Dhanush's name for the film. So that's how Dhanush landed himself into Anegan. See more »
The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to remove elements of strong violence (in this instance, blood spurts from gunshots, bloody stabbings, and the chopping off of a man finger) in order to obtain a 12A classification. An uncut 15 classification was available. See more »
I'm quite surprised that this movie hasn't got a higher rating on IMDb. Anegan showed me how well Dhanush can act. His modern day persona Ashwin fell a bit flat for me, perhaps because character-wise he's the dullest and there isn't much character development, but Dhanush's portrayals of Murugappa and Kaali were fantastic.
I wish the female characters were stronger. Actually, they're far from weak personalities, yet we're not shown how their strength of character carries over outside the realm of finding their soulmate and never letting them go. Amyra's character is a perpetual damsel- in-distress needing Dhanush's character to take care of her. That said, I think Amyra delivered excellently.
Aside from a few unanswered questions I have (deleted scenes seem to provide some answers) and a little salt for the extra implausibility of villain's demise in the end, Anegan was beautifully shot, well executed and very entertaining!
Update: I revisited the film and feel I have to mention that Anegan has great supporting characters. And, I can't get the soundtrack out of my head.
