The rest of the movie revolves around Arjun’s success in tracking down the gang and his ability that will save the community from the band of bikers and their boss.
Is Valimai Based On A True Story?
The film is not based on true events and is entirely fictional. The movie featuring Ajith in a new image has piqued interest for a variety of reasons, and it could be a moneymaker. Despite the fact that many fans are eager to learn more about the movie, the directors have managed to keep people guessing by revealing only the required elements. When the trailer for Valimai was released, it generated a lot of talks, leading many moviegoers to believe that the movie is based on a true events tale. Ramesh Bala, a well-known industry observer, also spilled the beans on Ajith’s part, saying on Twitter that the megastar will play a character based on a real-life individual who entered the Tamil Nadu police force. He did clarify, though, that the narrative is ‘fictional.’
During the premiere of the movie’s trailer, director H Vinoth stated that the storyline is “partially based on a bunch of outlaw motorcycle riders who are involved in horrible crimes and how the character chases them down.” The filmmaker hinted that Satan’s Slaves Club’s history was the inspiration for the film. In the mid-1960s, the Shipley-based Satan’s Slaves Motorcycle Club was formed. It then expanded to Germany, North America, Scotland, and Australia, among other countries. Drug dealing, human trafficking, illegal weapons, blackmail, and other horrific actions were all part of the club’s reputation. The plot of the film is similar to Sons of Anarchy, a movie about an outlaw motorcycle organization.

The film begins with a strong statement by the antagonist, Karthikeya, as seen in the teaser, who states, “We are Satan’s servants. Our world is the black web.” An emblem of a deadly biking club may be seen in subsequent scenes, offering viewers a glimpse of the film’s interesting theme. Vinoth has previously said in a statement that when Jayalalithaa became Chief Minister, a bike racer was appointed immediately as a Sub-inspector, and he used this as a ‘motivation’ for the main protagonist, who is a previous racing pro, converted cop.

In Valimai, Ajith has brought his true passion for biking to the cinema. While shooting in the thick of the outbreak, the actor’s photos of him riding heavily loaded motorcycles went viral. Since then, the movie has been generating a lot of buzz. The Valimai trailer showed how the stunt team had used cutting-edge technology to pull off death-defying bike feats.
