It was a star-attraction and all the high and mighty from different fields such as filmdom, politics converged on the Marina in Chennai last evening for the unveiling of the statue of thespian Sivaji Ganesan by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi.
Fulfilling the poll promise of the DMK and the wish of the Tamil film industry, the statue erected on Kamaraj Salai was inaugurated at a function coinciding with the actor’s fifth death anniversary.
Speaking at the function, Karunanidhi struck a personal note and recalled his long friendship with the Dadasaheb Phalke awardee that dates back to the 1950s.

Vijay and Asin sizzle in Pokkiri

July 13, 2006

On July 6, Vijay — an actor who has been churning out similar-looking films at regular intervals — faced the camera after a long gap of six months for Pokiri, a remake of one of the biggest hits in Telugu.


The original, also called Pokiri, starred Mahesh Babu and Ileana and was directed by Puri Jagannadh. Following its stupendous success, Ileana became the hottest heroine in Telugu and Mahesh Babu, already a superstar, consolidated his position.

Vijay’s last film Aathi, produced by his father S A Chandrasekhar, was a disaster. It was reported that distributors who lost a lot of money wanted the reimbursement from the producer. Shocked by its failure, and the criticism that he was repeating himself in his films, Vijay decided to become choosy.
A lover of remakes from Telugu, he was supposed to do a Tamil version of Dharani’s Bangaram, until that film’s failure made him look at other options. When Pokiri stormed the Telugu box office, Vijay didn’t think twice.


Prabhu Deva, who has made the very successful Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana with Siddharth and Trisha in the lead, has taken on Puri Jagannath’s role as director. It is the dancer’s first directorial venture in Tamil.
With Vijay being an excellent dancer, and Prabhu Deva an exceptional choreographer, we can expect some great dance numbers in Pokiri.

Then began the hunt for a heroine. Trisha, one of Vijay’s most successful co-stars, was ruled out mainly because she was his heroine in the forgettable Aathi. Vijay’s last success was Sivakasi, where his co-star was Asin, the hottest heroine of the moment.
Asin has been extremely choosy about the roles she would like to portray. She found the role of an aerobics instructor interesting. The character is a lot like the real life actress — friendly, chirpy and vivacious. Also, like Vijay, she has stayed away from the camera for a while, sticking to commercials and becoming a brand ambassador of products like Mirinda instead.


On July 6, a pooja was held at the Ganapati temple at AVM studio in Chennai.
Vijay’s mother Sobha Chandrasekhar did the clap for the first shot — that of Vijay and Asin meeting in a lift.

Pokiri in Telugu was the story of a suave, cool mafia man called Pandu, who falls in love with an aerobics instructor, Shruthi. The film had lots of action, romance, fun and glamour – everything needed for commercial success. Like the heroine, the female audience also fell for the sophisticated Mahesh Babu, despite the fact that he played a mafia man.

Vijay is probably expecting the same result with his Tamil version. At present, his fans are mainly young men who like action. Asin is sure to get a lot of applause, like she did in Ghajini.

With distributors falling over each other to buy it, Pokiri is being regarded as one of the hottest films in the making.

Vijay’s dream come true?


July 13, 2006
If there is one dream unfulfilled for Actor Vijay, it is this: to act in a double role film. He has been waiting for the right story and script for a long time and it looks like they have finally arrived. Director Vincent Selva, the man who is presently busy with Jitthan Ramesh and Saloni in Madurai Veeran, has evolved the story for Vijay. Impressed by the first version, Vijay is waiting for a break in his Pokkiri shoot to listen to the full version of the story. If everything goes off well, Vijay may working with Vincent in a dual role film next year.

Prabhu Deva or Lawrence: Who will be the winner

Here’s a strong contender for Vijay’s Pokkiri!!  pokkiri-15.jpg
The promos for Pokkiri show a fun film with Vijay back in his elements at what he does best – total entertainment. Asin is his foil. Prabhudeva makes his debut as director in Tamil with Pokkiri.
While Vijay is seeking to reestablish his standing as a bankable star and Prabhudeva is out to prove on his home turf, there is some interesting competition brewing in the backyard.  Raghavendra Lawrence, who was an associate under Prabudeva, soon became a much sought after choreographer and director in Telugu. He has worked with all the top stars there.
He did try to become hero in Tamil, but failed. Undeterred, he tried his hand at direction and his first film, Mass with Nagarjuna was a big hit. His next film, Style, with himself and Prabhudeva has been one of the super hits of this year, a highlight being the presence of Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi in the climax. That speaks volumes about the affection he commands in the industry there.


 Now, Lawrence is also on the home beat with the launch of his Tamil film, Muni for director saran’s gemini productions. An extremely choosy Rajkiran, who enthralled with his performance in Thavamai Thavamirundhu, plays a weighty character once again. With him as the hero, one can expect either raw energy or subdued melodrama. Let us hope, Lawrence is able to draw out another stellar act from him.

The talk on everybody’s lips right now is – will it be Pokkiri or Muni? We just cannot say, right now. But watch this space as we bring you sneak peek into both.
