No trouble for Pokkiri

011t.jpg 
The much awaited Vijay starrer Pokkiri is in the news again but this time for a different reason. The association of theatre owners in Tamil Nadu has protested against the release of this Vijay starrer. According to them, they had incurred heavy losses during the release of Adi which has not been compensated till date.
 
Though there was an assurance from Vijay’s side to offset the losses, it was not done till date. Hence the theatre owners have staged a protest now stating that unless Adi losses are taken care of, they would not let the release of Pokkiri for this festival season beginning from Pongal.

But situation seems to have been brought under control now with hectic parleys between these two parties. Now it is expected that an amicable solution would be arrived soon resulting in the release of Pokkiri for Pongal. So fans of Vijay can now concentrate more on the pre-release revelry now to receive the film of their favorite icon.

Vijay is the next Superstar – Vijay TV Awards

For the ears of Ilayathalapathy’s fans, we have one of the most exciting news that you will be hearing in your lives. Can you guess what the news could be???

Well, before you break your heads guessing about it, we take this opportunity to shout this news out

VIJAY HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED OFFICIALLY AS THE NEXT SUPERSTAR

It can be unbelievable for many, but trust us, this news is true. Vijay TV conducted a worldwide poll to decide on who the fans think would be the next Superstar. And to the delight of Ilayathalapathy’s fans, they have come to the conclusion that Vijay is indeed the Next Superstar.

The award function held by Vijay TV, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai was attended by a host of celebrities. Some among them included Dr Kamalhaasan, ILAYATHALAPATHY VIJAY, Chiyaan Vikram, Prabhu, Sathyaraj, Dharani, Jeeva, Cheran, PC Sreeram, Ravi K Chandran, SP Balasubramanian, Janaki, Saroja Devi, Vivek, Prabudeva and many others

The function started with a carnatic song followed by a Bharatnatyam piece. The function then went on at full swing with awards from various categories being presented to the winners.

First, Chiyaan Vikram arrived at the function. Then the big moment came when the star of the show, Vijay arrived with his wife for the function. A huge round of applause reverberated throughout the stadium. All who had gathered, turned around at the entry of Vijay. The atmosphere had got electric by the presence of Vijay. Dr Kamalhaasan arrived at the function and got close to an equally great reception.

Finally, the award for Vijay was to be announced.  Yuhi Sethu announced the award in the following way

There can be various stars, but there can be only Sun who cannot be reached. Similarly, there is only one Superstar and that is, Rajinikanth and reaching him is very tough. But the next Superstar is Vijay, for his excellence in giving hits. He started with Rasigan and Deva, then changed onto a romantic hero in Kadaluku Mariyadhai, Thullatha Manamum Thullum, Kushi and he then boosted his career with the mega-hit Ghilli and then he reached unbelievable heights with Thirupachi, Sivakaasi, etc which no one else can think of attaining. His comedy, his fights, his dance, his sentiments, he is like a complete package. He is liked by everybody. We are very proud to present this award to Ilayathalapathy Vijay on the behalf of the fans and the whole film industry and we are sure that Vijay will continue to live as the Next Superstar of Tamil Cinema

Dr Kamalhaasan issued the award to Ilayathalapathy Vijay, and “The Next Superstar” Vijay received this award from the legend with all happiness. As usual, Vijay wished all his fans and well wishers and thanked them for their unflinching support. He said “I am very happy to receive this award. The fans have given me this award. I am not sure if I deserve this award. But still, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me this award. I thank everyone for all their support and love.” Saying this, Vijay concluded his speech.

Dr Kamalhaasan was also conferred an award for his outstanding achievements in Tamil Cinema. Actor Vikram received an award for the “Youth Icon”.

Vijay Fans Network wishes “Next Superstar” Vijay all grand success. This is a moment which we can forget in our entire lives.

Loyola Survey – Vijay leads the current generation

“Superstar’u yaarunu ketta chinna kozhandayum sollum”

rajni, rajinifans, superstar, ilayathalapathy, vijay, official fans network, vijaynet, vijayfansite, vijayrasigan, ilayathalapathyonlineAs far as Tamil Cinema is concerned, there is one and only Superstar and that is, RAJINIKANTH! But here we are going to talk about the actors who are staking their claim to the throne of the “prince in heir” to that Superstar throne in Tamil Cinema which they will occupy after Rajini.

According to a recently held survey by Loyola College Students across TAMIL NADU, we will able to decipher public opinion on who they think is that “prince” who is next in line for the Superstar post. Since this survey was conducted to see who their favorite hero was, Rajini Sir still occupies the hearts of the people and is the Number one in this survey held across Tamil Nadu. But for this article, the rankings of the current generation of actors is what is going to be important for us.

Here are the percentages accorded to each actor (starting from ascending and goes down to descending)

Rajinikanth – 15.6%

VIJAY – 14.2%

Vijaykanth – 12.6%

ajith – 11.1%

Kamalhaasan – 8.3%

So according to the survey held across Tamil Nadu, it becomes quite clear that Ilayathalapathy Vijay is expected to be the “Next Superstar” after Superstar Rajinikanth. The release of Pokkiri is expected to further confirm this fact among the movie goers that Vijay indeed is going to rule the hearts of our fans all over Tamil Nadu!

Pokiri – Action all the way
IndiaGlitz  [Friday, December 22, 2006]

Pokiri, a remake of blockbuster Telugu hit starring Mahesh Babu in the same title, promises to be a racy entertainer with a power-packed screenplay.

What’s more, the movie is directed by choreographer-cum-actor Prabhu Deva. After his directorial ventures in Tollywood with Nuvvastanantae Nenodantana and Pournami, Prabhu Deva wields the megaphone for the first time in Tamil with Pokiri.

Produced by Kanakarathina Movies, Pokiri stars Asin opposite Vijay and Prakash Raj plays the baddie in the movie. An action-packed adventure, the movie has all the commercial elements in the right mix.

The movie features Vijay in the role of a ruthless baddie, who is part of a mafia. But he is a man on a mission. He has objectives to achieve. What they are and how he accomplishes them forms the story line.

Asin, after Sivakasi, teams up with Vijay again. She plays an aerobic instructor in the movie. Prakash Raj plays a pivotal character in the movie.

Mani Sharma scores the music for the film. His tunes in the original were highly acclaimed. He has come up with seven songs in Pokiri including a remix of yesteryear hit Vasanthamullai Polae. Nirav Shah cranks the camera. A couple of song sequences were shot in Melbourne, Australia and choreographed by Raju Sundaram. 

Pokiri is slated for a release this Pongal. Says Prabhu Deva, “We have made minor changes in the script to suit Tamil audience. With a winner  in hand, we are sure to go all out and rock theatres this Pongal.”

Pokkiri Audio Sales Report

Pokkiri Audio Sales Report:

Mani Sharma’s Dedication and Vijay’s star power has paid off not just for the Audio Company, but also the Fans who waited for this bonanza feast for more than a year. Sales are reported to be rocking not just in Tamil Nadu, but also abroad. We were notified by major audio retailers that it has come to a stage where customers have placed orders to purchase the CD’s.

“Clear indication of a super strike”

On Speaking to One of the top “Five Star audio” officials, he expressed his joy and happiness by the sales generated in the past few days after the release. He stated that the response he received from the audio retailers is immense. He also highlighted that more CD’s and Cassettes will be produced more than the expected number and will be released to meet the demand of the fans. This news comes as a shocker when the audio market is seeing its lowest growth in recent times. Vijay’s movie audio normally generates moderate sales before the movie release and it doubles after the movie release, but the response of Pokkiri has been exceptional; In this case imagine the growth of audio sales after the Movie release, its going to be “MASSIVE”. It is normally AR Rahman who creates this hype, but this time Vijay and Mani Sharma Combination have done it with ease. We would also like to bring to notice that Five Star audio has stated that all songs in the album have become big hits, which happens to be a rare occasion for an audio album.

Five star Audio boldly predicts a Platinum Disc Function for the Pokkiri Audio. They believe that that magic of Ghilli will be recreated in Pokkiri.
