Full protection[edit]

Due to the massive, unceasing edit warring going on here, I've fully protected the article for 1 week. Please use this time to talk about what changes should be made to the article here, on this talk page. Please note that my protection of the current version is in no way an endorsement of the current version; it's just me stopping the edit warring. Please note that if edit warring resumes after the protection expires, I'll either re-protect or block as needed. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:43, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Let me be more clear: I said, have a discussion. Not put vandalism crap or put accusations against other editors. Qwyrxian (talk) 13:33, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Since this article is protected such that only admins can edit, I'd like users to add info abt the film from these sources:

Edit request on 16 October 2012[edit]

The review part of film stated that it has received highly negative reviews but the truth is that it has got mixed to positive reviews. It had stated that OneIndia gave it 2.5 but the truth is that the website gave it gave 3.5 there link for my statement on exit link section. One more thing, the movie had been trimmed and add a few scene in second half to up its pace as a few felt second half is draggy. I hope admin will have a look these facts.Your work is hounered by every1. Waxman123456 (talk) 04:00, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

I also agree with you. The movie has received mixed to positive reviews. But OneIndia rated it 3/5, actually. Add the reviews from NowRunning [1] and don't avoid it saying that the website is not reliable. You have added reviews from MovieCrow, IndianDragon etc. So, add it. Add box office section also. This might help - [2]. Thanks! (talk) 09:40, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Please obtain a consensus on these changes before using the edit request template. Once you have a consensus (or, in a few days, if no one else responds) feel free to change the "answered" parameter back to no. Note that admins don't actually make decisions in these matters--all we do is edit based on the consensus of involved editors. However, as for's comment we can't ignore WP:RS--that site sure doesn't look like it's reliable, so it can't be added.
Finally, while I'm not actually going to debate the content, please note that it is not appropriate to list every single review you can find. We're an encyclopedia, not a review aggregator. We should have a broad summary of the reviews, with specific information picked out from a few that are particularly noteworthy. Qwyrxian (talk) 10:31, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

The movie really got Mixed to positive response from critics. but you stated as negative review.please check the sites correctly again and see the reviews and ratings for the movie.and movie is actually doing well in box office.please correct those mistakes. thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alsajay1 (talkcontribs) 12:48, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

You're either not hearing or understanding me. I'm not going to check anything. You all, as editors interested in the topic, need to discuss right here how the article should look. Provide evidence to support your positions. Come to a consensus. This is how Wikipedia works. Qwyrxian (talk) 13:14, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Okay, since three different people here are saying "highly negative" is wrong, I've changed it to "mixed". That, at least, is more neutral. Please come to a consensus about what reviews to include, and whether or not "mixed" should be changed to "positive" or something similar. Qwyrxian (talk) 13:15, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

You cannot add review from NowRunning and you could add from IndianDragon, MovieCrow etc. Explain how are these two reliable sites. If you cannot add the review from NowRunning, then you must delete the ones from the above mentioned two. And the reviews are mixed to positive and not mixed. Thanks! (talk) 14:45, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

I didn't add anything. Please get consensus for your proposed edits before changed the setting to "answered = yes". I am only allowed to make edits right now that have a clear consensus. Qwyrxian (talk) 15:23, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

I will like to edit the movies review section from mixed to positive review because the movie Nanban release earlier this year had review alike this movie but was writen as positive response from critic in wikipedia and now running and the thruthdive review were add to.So i will iked to add these website review for this movie in this page and there two review from would like change this also. it is stated the hero's perfomance is appriciate by everyone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Waxman123456 (talkcontribs) 00:49, 18 October 2012 (UTC)


Okay, I've put on a month of semi-protection. I have no idea why so many people are obsessed with moving the ratings for this movie up and down, but I hope that the protection will make editing easier. Note that confirmed editors still need to be certain not to [{WP:EW|edit war]]; any who do will be blocked. Qwyrxian (talk) 21:51, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

392 - Pizza (up 124%)
84 - Aarohanam (new)
35 - Thaandavam (down 38%)
21 - Sundarapandian (down 40%)
21 - Mayilu (new)
7 - Saattai (no change)
7 - Vawwal Pasanga (new)

Pizza shows have more than doubled this week. Maattrraan is on the way out meeting the same fate as Billa 2 and Thaandavam.

Please add this information to the article that Maattrraan has flopped.

Please provide reliable sources for your claims, especially the claim of "flopped" (note that we cannot interpret the numbers to mean that--you need an actual source that uses that term). Qwyrxian (talk) 11:59, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 10 November 2012[edit]

| box office =40 crores (talk) 14:53, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

why don't u provide a source? Kailash29792 (talk) 15:31, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Plot trimming[edit]

The plot needs to be trimmed. Per WP:FILMPLOT, plot sections should be between 400 and 700 words; this one is currently at 729. Even being at the top end is generally unnecessary...but someone who has seen the film needs to bring it down. Qwyrxian (talk) 14:13, 28 November 2012 (UTC)


Superwoods is not a reliable source .So remove the boxoffice of 88 croes — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:55, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
