Pagal Nilavu (1985)

Eventhough Maniratnam's films, dont have big collection at Box Office, his films had bagged the same in musical shops. I wonder how he is able to get such top-rated songs from the music directors, to whom he is working. Whoever working with Mani, will deliver their life-achievement-work. I hope only Illayaraja and ARR worked with him. Just we can divide his movies into two eras like with Illayaraja and with ARR.

I heard that Maniratnam was not worked as assistant for any director. He got into film industry through Pagal Nilavu (1985). Somebody said he did first film in Telugu. I am bad in that area. So starting with Kollywood. At that period the picturisation is top and even viewers looked it different. And all the songs of this movies are still occupying my heart esp. Poomalaiye with his own voice along Janaki. If you want, you can hear it here. And Maina Maina and Poovilae Medai are other notable songs.

Murali is a chella pillai for all directors on their debutant movies. One of that is Pagal Nilavu. Another movies are Kathir's Idhyam, Balu's Kalamellam Kathal vazhga and this list is very long. Revathi was pairing with Murali. Murali looks young and his black give some touch on scree. Satyaraj acted as a villan and as for, story nothing is different. But the way of telling the story is much away from others in that time. Still I have the scenes of Poomalaye Songs, which is very different in visualization.

Aadhi - Odiye vittathu

[Pic Courtesy:Tamilmurasu]

As I said, Aadhi ran for 100 days and still running. It's not to tarnishing the image of Vijay. Just to give awareness, that we should not stick on the number of days of film. And it should be noted that, Aadhi can't be compared with Chandramukhi which is running beyond 375 days in Chennai Shanthi theatre.


This is time for Kerala girls to dominate Tamil film world. Hope it was Meera Jasmine, who started her career and opened doors for Kerala Girls in Run, introduced by director Lingusamy. After that we are seeing Gopika, Asin, Navya Nair, Nayanthara (now Tamizh ponnu?) and now Bhavana. She is busy after the success of Chiththiram Pesuthadi. Now she is pairing with Srikanth in Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai, Bharath in Veyyil and Ajith in Bala's Naan Kadavul. On seeing her performance she got these films in hand. Really Kerala girls are nice. I hope I am able to identify them by seeing their big eyes (correcta sonna..Pesum Vizhigal), long hair.

En kanavu Dhevathai

When I saw this news, I was so happy to see Asin, my dream girl again in silver screens, pairing with Vijay in Thangam. But today I got disappointed on seeing this. Only she have godfather in hand to be released, eventhough she was a dream girl of Tamilnadu after the release of Ghajini.

சே! கை நழுவி போனதே..

After seeing this news, இதயம் இரண்டாக பிளந்ததே. Asin making her calsheets with less number movies. May be she can marry her Malabar lover soon.

Puthu Jodi?

Did Simbhu married Nayanthara?

Tamil galatta says "Kerala is buzzing with rumours that Nayanthara and Little Superstar Simbhu have tied the knot secretly. The actors are working together in Vallavan. It was here that Simbhu got close to Nayanthara. They fell in love and decided to tie the knot. T.R. and wife Usha objected to Simbhu marrying an actress. Usha herself was an actress who got married to T.R. Simbhu could not understand the double standards of his parents and decided to go ahead and marry. Sources say that the couple is scheduled to visit a famous temple in Thiruvalla (Kerala) to seek the blessings of the Goddess" under the title Nayanthara-Simbhu: secret marriage?

Happy Anniversary Thala

Happy wedding anniversary to Ajit and Shalini , the finest couple in Kollywood.
It's their sixth Anniversary. Wishing both to have happiest marriage life on this day.

Thala, Happy Anniversary Thala.

And it's very rare picture from Ajith's Marriage. Rivals of Tamil Cinema with their life Partners.

Bala's Naan Kadavul with Ajith in lead, going for shooting in May.

Tirupathi - Reasons

The following might be reasons for the disaster (as reported by Sify) of the recent release AVM's Tirupathi.

1. Perarasu's over-confidence
2. Bharadwaj's Songs except Tirupathi vantha Theeppori
3. Not showing (Thanks : Kaps) songs/scenes in channels.
4. Ajith's selection of stories
5. AVM's more concentration on Sivaji

Do you have more reasons?

Pesum Theivangal

Kalvanin Kadhali flopped only because of SJ Suryah's sleaze image among the viewers. Even my friends avoided to see Kalvanin Kadhali only because of SJ Suryah. Now he ready to attract children and family audience with his new film Pesum Theivangal. For time being, he has shelved his other projects like Thirumagan and AC. He assured that the film will be entertainment to attarct his family audience in the time of Vaali and Kushi

Arasiyal Nagaichuvai - 8

[Thanks :


Tirupathi is a typical AVM's traditional and Perarasu's usual formula film. It seems AVM accepted the story and screenplay because it is very much coinciding with their earlier films. Perarasu has to refine his ideas atleast in his next film. Otherwise it may be hard to watch his films with vulgarity and chauvinism in a stereotyped way. Eventhough the character is not well suited for Ajith, he able to manage with masala-mannan image from kadhal-mannan image. But he should not follow the same masala way. Soft characters are well suited for Ajith then these type of action hero image.

Tirupathi(Ajith) is a owner of Sound-service company. Soori(Riayz khan), minister's(pyramid Natarajan) son is his friend. Tirupathi is doing dirty works for him. Tirupathi's pregnant sister is died because of money-minded doctor. When Tirupathi tried to take revenge of that doctor, Soori stands up to save him. This make friends as enemy. Remaining story is about the tricks and action, tirupathi used to revenge his friend.

As usual, Perarasu introduced his cheap taste in flourishing the love between Ajith and Sada. And really there is no need for heroine in the film. Only to have duet songs, Sada is used in the movie. No opportunity was given to Sada, to act. But she looks very cute when compared to Anniyan. In entire second half, Sada is coming only for a single song.

In this film, Perarasu comes out of personal reasons to Social angle in the concept. And also he inserted the sentimental scenes in correct place to attract the women viewers more. The screenplay is not as good as Tirupatchi, but helps for racy move. Usually, the built-up for introduction of hero is good in his movies when seeing Tirupatchi and Sivakasi. But here it is missing. When seeing Paramasivan and Tirupathi, it is sure that still Ajith should put more concentration on selecting stories, eventhough much experienced director is handling. And also, in such a heroic-masala movies, all punch lines should praise hero. Here Perarasu is prasing himself, which is because of Ajith's magnanimous, allowed that in movie. No other hero will accept this, to have in thier movies from MGR-Rajni period.

Background is not good and energetic. Songs are not catchy, which is a big minus point. Only Tirupathi vantha song is hot. As I assumed earlier, it is not like batcha, but combination of Annamali and Padikkathavan. When compared to lazy first half, second able to manage to impress, excluding the dragged climax.

Tirupathi - Perarasu-vin imalaya sarukkal

ayyo Sami!

Perarasu - Next SP Muthuraman?

Everyone expecting for the results of Tirupathi. The reasons may be different.
Reason 1 : Will Ajith able to get a super hit movie after a (very) longtime?
Reason 2 : Will Perarasu do magic this time as hat-trick?

Nothing to discuss about the reason 1. Even Ajith is not speaking about that, Why should I?
Taking Reason #2, I thot of writing about Perarasu when seeing the answer given for my comment by balaji. His thots are correct on Perarasu. But I am seeing him as a next SPMuthuraman(where Vishnu as next maniratnam), who made masala entertainments in 80's with Rajni and Kamal. His movies also contain vulgarity and chauvinism. But people loved to see that. The 80% of movies directed by him are super hit/blockbuster. He directed around 25 movies with Rajini as lead, where 21 were hit. I beleive Perarasu has the same talent in pulling and making viewers to enjoy with racy masala formula.

I am expecting Tirupathi like AVM-SPM-Rajini combo's Murratu Kalai and AVM-SPM-Kamal combo's Sakalakala Vallavan. Only one day is remained to see the results of this movie.

Anyway Ajith has great opening charisma. But the film should have capability able to pull people out of Election fever. But seeing very least number of films for April 14, hope the Tirupathi will do good collections as its name.

Chandramukhi - 365

Tomorrow is Chadramukhi's 365th day at Chennai, Shanthi Theatre (one show per day after 150 days). Already they had celebrated this milestone. I accept Chandramukhi have all capability to reach 365 mark. Compared to anyother actor, Rajini has his own magic to run the movies. Eventhough lot of positives over that, I am still not able to imagine whether all the shows will have that much of viewers. And also, Shanthi theatre is owned by Sivaji family. So obviously my doubt have more strongholds.

Should rajini also need to show his power by running the movie for 365 days or Sivaji Productions wants to do like that. Who knows?

Media War

Dinakaran and Kungumam increased thier issues when compared to their previous years. Repeated advertisement helps them to achieve this. Eventhough they are coming from SUN group, they try to maintain neutral position. But here pothujanam explains clearly about this in detail. When reading news of Dinamalar and Kumudham, I really used to see their anti-DMK news. Even the news about the joining of Bhagyaraj into DMK is not there anywhere in dinamalar. Then how can we say that dinamalar is neutral? I am reading Dinamalar for nearly 12 years. I dont see any times they behaved like this previusly? May be the increase in the number of issues of dinakaran may made dinamalar to worry. I heard that in a small town like Oddanchatram near Palani, Dinamalar and Dinathanthi, each loss nearly 1000 issues.

Devathaiyai Kanda Muthukumar

[Thanks : Dinakaran]
When I hear the song Devathaiyai Kanden, I really impressed with the lines of that song. The way of words used in that song is really impressive. The song is penned by Na.Muthukumar. He had started his career in Seeman's Veeranadai. Now his thoughts are as songs in 75% of tamil movies. Yuvan has used him in very that his latest hits 7GRC, Manmathan were hit. And also, his songs are poetical and so meaningful.

Initially, Vidyasagar gave opportunity for nearly five song writers in his movies like Run, Dhil, Parthiban Kanavu and some more. One of that is Na. Muthukumar and he used that to get new assignments. Now he paired with YSR and Selvaraghavan..They have did a good combo and able to climb and reach top of the charts.

Na. Muthukumar going to marry Jeevalakshmi from Saligram. Their engagement was happened yesterday and marriage will be on June 14.

Some of my favourites penned by him are listed here.

* Kathal Valarthen from Manmathan
* KanPesum Varthaigal from 7GRC
* Devathaiyai Kanden from Kathal Konden
* Suttum Vizhi Sudare from Ghajini
* Theepidikka from Arinthum Ariyamalum
* Chellame Chellam from Album
* Un Perai Sonnale from Dumm Dumm Dumm
* Theradi Veethiyil from Run

Devathaiyai Kanda Muthukumar, Kathal Valarthu, Suttum Vizhi Sudare pada pogirar.
Vazhthukkal Muthukumar!!!

ennaaththa Solvenunga..

This is bad time for Illayathalapathy Vijay. He is not stand infront of camera for last 105 days..and it's again a new record in his 11-year-old career in Kollywood. His formula has always been to go with a mixture of sentiment, action, comedy and romance. This worked well for a while, but after the shake up of Aadhi (eventhough going to have posters with 100 days), Vijay is taking care about the scripts he would choose for his next film. But you cannot expect him to act in Sethu, Pithamagan type of movies. He may change his formulae, like what Rajni did in Chanramukhi. Now Chiththiram Pesuthadi fame director Mysskin is asked to frame a story for Vijay.

He can also do characters like what Rajni did in his earlier days..Like Mullum Malarum kinda thing will give much good name for him. If he do masala-characters now also, then it will be hard thing to retain his position. My opinion is, at a time, only one ruled the tamil cinema..When Ajith is in top, Vijay did some flopped and when Vijay is in top, Ajith is not even in the race..May be it is the time for Ajith to climb, and Vijay to find difficult to get his super star fame place..Hope Tirupathi will answer these type of questions.
