There are lots of comments that there is heavy violence in Renigunta.
Director Panneerselvam while speaking about this said,” The theme of Renigunta is violence. What else could I narrate in this film? I have to narrate according to the story. I have not forced violence into a poetic film. When there is no one to show love or affection to a person, he resorts to violence. What else can be shown about these persons? But I feel that there is impact even above the violence. I will try to avoid violence in my future films.”
