Usually, family members of an actor/technician don't talk negatively about the movies of their relatives. But Tamil superstar Vijay's father SA Chandrasekhar, a veteran filmmaker, has spoken out against the action-comedy.

In an interview, SAC said that he enjoyed 'Beast' till the 'Arabic Kuthu' song sequence but the film wasn't engaging after that point. He added that 'Beast' relies only on the star power of Vijay but falls short in writing and execution. The veteran filmmaker continued to say that new generation directors give one or two good films but when they get a chance to direct a big hero, they become lethargic and think that the actor's stardom will make the movie a successful one.

"Filmmakers should do their movies in their own style. Yes, they can include some necessary entertainment elements in their works comfortably," he added, suggesting that 'Beast' needed a couple of more songs.

The film, starring Pooja Hegde, Selvaraghavan, Yogi Babu and Redin Kingsley, was released in theatres on April 13.
