He appealed to the film-makers to produce films which would help improve police-public relations so that the police could detect crimes in co-operation with the public and bring the criminals to book.

The hero of "Vettaiyadu Vilayadu", Kamal Hasaan, said no single person could take credit for the success of a film. The credit for the success of "Vettaiyadu... "Went to everyone involved in the project. He praised the producer, Manickam Narayanan of 7th Channel, and the director, Gautham Menon. While Narayanan 'sweated to tears' to complete the film, Gautham served as a mirror to him, Kamal said.

The actor said the success of "Vettaiyadu..." gave him a shield to face God knows how many more battles in future. But he was not Mongolian conqueror Genghis khan to win all the battles.

The other speakers included director Gautham. Producer Narayanan proposed a vote of thanks.

The function was attended, among others, by Film Chamber president KRG, actress Shreya, directors Dharani, Saran and Parthiban and music director Haris Jayaraj.
