Fans of the Tamil mega star have been waiting in long queues in front of the movie theatres where the film was screened.

The producers are now planning to increase the number of screens from 200 to 300 and the movie has drawn major numbers even in the international destinations where it was released. 'Baba' is considered special for the actor as he wrote the story and screenplay and was also the film's producer. It has a star cast that includes Rajinikanth, Manisha Koirala, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vijayakumar, Sayaji Shinde and Gaundumani. The music was composed by the Oscar-winning A.R. Rahman.
