Venkat Prabhu, director of Vijay's The Greatest of All Time appears to have courted some controversy. He recently posted a video on Instagram stories mocking commercial movie trailers.

The video was uploaded by an X (previously Twitter) user, along with a screenshot of Venkat's Instagram stories. They wrote, “Director @vp_offl reposted an Instagram story in which @Dir_Lokesh is being Mocked for #Coolie Title Teaser, Then Atlee....Now Lokesh..(sic).” Venkat responded, and while he denied making fun of Lokesh and Rajinikanth's Coolie, he claimed to agree with what was expressed in the video.

Venkat wrote, “No no no!!! It’s about all of us who are doing commercial flick!! And what he is sayings is kinda true too!!” He also put the onus on stars’ fans, questioning if they would accept filmmakers who veer from the usual commercial template while cutting trailers, adding, “If we try to give something different from the regular commercial template!! are the fans ready to accept.”

On the video that Venkat re-shared, an Instagram user said, “Controversial opinion maybe but I think all these trailers that are dropping of big commercial films in Tamil are all the same trailer. All the same trailer! Every movie has the same trailer. (Imitates loud, thumping music) You’ll use retro music of some old movie, punch dialogues of their own old movies and the only thing original about it is we get excited as if it’s a new thing. Why are you reacting to the same thing, crazy people.”

Anirudh Ravichander reprogrammed the music for Coolie’s recently released title announcement video, which was originally composed for the 1983 film Thanga Magan and titled ‘Vaa Vaa Pakkam Vaa’. In the announcement video, Rajnikanth also delivers his famous phrase from the 1982 film Ranga, which was based on a lyric from the song ‘Sambo Siva Sambo’ from his 1979 film Ninaithale Inikkum, which also starred Kamal Hassan.
