Alaigai Oivathillai - In prep for Mani Ratnam’s Kadal - remember these young ones in their first film in the 80s.
Kollywood supporting Kamal - good to see everyone helping Kamal on this Viswaroopam fiasco.
Viswaroopam verdict postponed again until 6th February. Watch this speech by Kamal today - we need to support him! This situation has politics written all over it! Ridiculous. TN government - why don’t you ban rubbish like Podaa Podi where the male character goes around teaching “women a lesson” as he is a “Patchai Tamilian”. These kind of films are really not helping society evolve.
David comes to London this week. Not sure which one to see first - David or Kadal…it’s a very difficult decision.
Moongil Thottham from Kadal - what a song. A few more days until Mani Ratnam’s latest creation. Cannot wait.
Making of “Unnai Kannatha” video from Kamal’s Viswaroopam.
Vishwaroopam - worth the wait
So many reviews out there so won’t go on but you have to watch it in the cinema (preferably a large screen with great sound). It’s a completely commercial offering from Kamal but presented beautifully. The boy has done well.
Maaveeran (1986) - Othungu Othungu sung by the late Malaysia Vasudevan. This was Rajini’s home production and not one of my favourite films but has some good songs. It was set in pre-independence India but just lacked a tight script and tried to do too many things in my opinion! However one of my younger brother’s fav Rajini films - even now he goes on about this one.
Baasha (1995) - Baasha Paaru. Rajini’s alter-ego’s introduction in Baasha - you cannot get any more Rajini than this film. One of my top 10 favourites!
Rajathi Raja (1988) - Enkitha Mothathe #rajinikanth #rajini100
The Review Raja does Rajini…this is classic….summa athirudu
Rajini does a surprise appearance at Kumki’s audio release. Kumki is the launch film for Sivaji Ganeshan’s grandson Vikram Prabhu.
Raajathi Raja - as a kid I watched this a zillions - double role for Rajini. One as millionaire and one as fearful farmer along with Radha and Nadiya as heroines respectively. Comedy from start to finish with usual Rajini-ness! This is the opening song.
