‘Happy Birthday Thala’

428488_575598885808209_2028463746_nBorn to a Pallakad Brahmin father and a Sindhi mother in the city of Secunderabad in 1971, one of the most prominent personalities of the age clocks 42 years in his calendar today. Actor-racer Ajith celebrates his birthday today with not just his family and friends but also the scores of fans, all of who are close to his heart.

History began shaping up in the late 80's when Ajith dropped out of high school, following his boyish charm of being a mechanic. He got himself a job in a shed where the vigour of his dream, of becoming a bike/car racer took shape. He put his talent to test in races, with the continuous helping hand extended towards him from his friends, who used to support him from cheering him to lending him tyres when his own wore out.

No matter how hard to hid behind the solid helmets, his handsome features with the twinkle in his sparkling eyes could just not go unnoticed. It was this aspect that earned him a ticket to the screens. The rise of his career was quick and steady, starting at age 18, when he first joined as an apprentice and soon became a merchandiser in export business, at age 21. His highly compelling attractive looks made sponsors and advertisers throng him from time to time for advertisements and modelling, making for a strong career in parallel.

It was not until the 90's that anybody anticipated a sensational storm to hit the silver screen. Ajith started off as an actor, with his debut, and to date, the only out-and-out Telugu film, in a supporting role, in ‘Prema Pustakam’ in 1992. His break in Tamil happened with director Selva’s ‘Amaravathi’, in which actor Vikram dubbed for Ajith.

What followed was a small role in another hunk of the town, Aravind Swamy’s ‘Paasamalargal’ and the lead role in the heart touching family story, ‘Pavithra’. Soon afterwards, the actor had too many awards and handle, apart from a continuously growing fan base. His success with director Vasanth’s ‘Aasai’ laid the stepping stone for his critically applauded National Award winning film of director Agathiyan’s ‘Kadhal Kottai’.

Meanwhile, Ajith was often spotted on screen with his special appearances and roles, though he turned down a few blockbuster projects like ‘Neruku Ner’ and ‘Aval Varuvala’. Ajith was the first to be awarded one of the highest salaries of that decade, at a remuneration totalling to a couple of millions, for ‘Ullasam’. Though there were a few movies that did not do well in the box office, his success story nullified all the loss. Starting with Ramesh Khanna’s ‘Thodarum’, it was a series of success for the big actor.

One of the most notable films of his career happened with Sj Suryaah’s thriller movie ‘Vaali’ that earned him the first of the many Filmfare Award for Best Actor. The next movie was equally big, not only in the box office, but also in his personal life. Saran’s ‘Amarkalam’, alongside Shalini, was not only a commercial hit, but also paved the path for him to tie the knot with the heroine. They have been a happy couple since the millennium year, 2000. He became a happy father to a gorgeous girl, Anoushka, in January 2008.

The boom in his filmdom continued after his marriage, with his unique roles in ‘Mugavaree’ and AR Rahman musical ‘Kandukondain Kandukondain’. It was director Murugadoss’ debut movie ‘Dheena’ that awarded him the title that he’s known by today, ‘Thala’. His trend setting continued with films like ‘Citizen’, ‘Red’ and ‘Asoka’. While ‘Poovellam Un Vasam’ earned him the Special Best Actor Award from Tamil Nadu State, his distinguished role in ‘Villain’ earned him his second National Award.

Then came a slump in the big screen story line when Ajith was spotted actively romancing the race track. He finished 4th in Formula Maruti Indian Championships in 2002, which paved his path to Formula BMW Asia Championship. He signed on the dotted line with manager Akbar Ebrahim to race in the inaugural. Despite his spin off in the first lap, his comeback was phenomenal, finishing at 7th at the end of the season. After more than half a decade from then, Ajith returned to the tracks in 2010.

He competed in the finals of MRF Racing Series in Chennai, in the month of February that year, but unfortunately could not finish owing to mechanical failure. However, this helped him score in his rigorous trials in Sepang, Malaysia, for the 2010 season of FIA Formula Two Championship, beginning in April. He drove his Formula Renault V6 and was noted to have shed 11 kilos during training! Till date, our Thala is the only Indian actor who is not only an active racer, but also a racer with the distinction of racing in the international arena.

The period between his racing hiatus till date is termed to have crowned him with the exalted status of super stardom. Following the unsatisfactory performance of ‘Paramasivan’ and ‘Thirupathi’, happened one of his biggest films to date, serving for a comeback, with ‘Varalaru’. Movies like ‘Aalwar’ and the remake of Malayalam blockbuster, ‘Kireedam’ kept turning the wheel until the big bang happened.

Turning out to be a stand-alone mega hit movie, with perfection and precision in every aspect, director Vishnuvardhan’s ‘Billa’, the remake of Superstar’s yesteryear blockbuster by the same title, was s runaway hit. The film portrayed Ajith as a suave don and a smooth criminal, rendering to traverse to the heights of style. After the biggest hit of all times, average runners like ‘Aegan’ and ‘Aasal’ kept his spirits up, until Venkat Praahu’s ‘Mankathaa’ happened. Yet another movie that portrayed him in a negative role, has not only added to his heroic fame but also marked his 50th film in the industry.

This film was followed by a prequel to the epic hit ‘Billa’, referred to as ‘Billa 2'. This film garnered mixed responses, many complaining the climax to be blunt. However, this was no threat to his ever growing fame and fan base. Now, under a mountain of expectation, the actor’s next, ‘Valai’ with director Vishnuvardhan is anticipated with the highest of expectations. Celebrating his birthday, the team released a teaser for this movie at midnight and having watched that, fans are only all the more happy to welcome the movie.

Apart from being a phenomenal actor, peerless racer, humble son, dear brother, passionate husband and a lovely dad, Ajith is also a humanitarian. He founded the NPO Mohini-Mani Foundation, named after his parents, to promote self hygiene and civic consciousness, in order to ease the urban sprawl. And this date, 42 years back, gifted the world with a handsome package of class and humility. To the simpleton who blows 42 candles on his cake today, we at Indiaglitz wish a bunch of happiness and a career full of happiness. Happy birthday Thala!

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren – Tamil Movie Review

Naan-Rajavaga-Pogiren-Stills-6Naan Rajavaga Pogiren is a 2013 Tamil action film co-written and directed by Prithvi Rajkumar.

The film features Nakul, Chandni and newcomer Avani Modi in the lead roles.

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren Stills 3 586×358 Naan Rajavaga Pogiren review

Movie: Naan Rajavaaga Pogiren
Director: Prithvi Rajkumar
Producer: Vetrimaaran
Written: Prithvi Rajkumar, Vetrimaaran (dialogues)
Star Cast: Nakul as Raja/Jeeva, Chandini as Valli, Avani Modi as Reema, Manivannan as Kamaraj, A. Venkatesh as Isakkimuthu Annachi, Raaghav, Delhi Ganesh, Mayilsamy, Zarine Khan (Item number), Vetrimaaran, GV Prakash Kumar, Velraj
Music: GV Prakash Kumar
Cinematography: Velraj
Editing: Kishore Te.
Studio: Udhayam VLS Cine Media

Content is King and Tamil cinema has been electrified with brand new conceptualizations that has been happening over the period of the past few months. A lot of brilliant ideas and a scintillating screenplay have engrossed the audience and in all likelihood, director Prithviraj Kumar should have come up with similar ideas. Apparently, he succeeds to a good extent and that’s due to an effective narration. Before a couple of months, Vishal’s ‘Samar’ had broken the usual paradigm (the film didn’t perform well in box office, but eventually spelt a different note on the dual role concept). Much alike, Prithviraj Kumar draws himself closer to such a concept of handling a simple story, but with a difference.

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren Tamil Movie 586×324 Naan Rajavaga Pogiren review

The film opens with Raja (Nakul) seen locking horns with few baddies and is hit by a lorry. It’s a few months later, we are commuted to Himachal Pradesh, where we find Jeeva (again played by Nakul), a lookalike of Raja leads a peaceful life with his mother (Seetha). On an incident, when an army personnel misinterpret him to be his college friend Raja, Jeeva turns inquisitive over finding the whereabouts of his identical personality and on the journey comes across Raja’s close friend Reema (Avani Modi). What unfolds next is a wild search of Raja? Will Jeeva find and meet him? You’ll have to watch the rest over the screens.

Perhaps, after you are through a vivid analysis of the film post – show, you might find it to be a little hackneyed in its basic theme, but the narration would keep you intact and unobstructed through the film. The suspense element crafted by the filmmaker and a good writing stands out as the major attraction of this film. Regardless of some weak traits, these very factors attribute to the pacy momentum in screenplay.

On the performance level, Nakul has showcased a lot of mature performance than his previous films. Perhaps, the long hiatus should have offered a lot of learning phase to the actor. The actor embellishes the characters of Raja and Jeeva with a decent approach, but the caricature of the latter one seems to be too artificial as Nakul’s childish acts doesn’t favour anywhere in the film. Chandni doesn’t get much to score, but keeps herself visible with a good performance. Be it to the glamorous appeal or challenging sequence, she tries to win praise and this girl succeeds well too. Avani Modi as a girl stuck between her emotions of love and friendship for Nakul does justice to her role. Filmmaker Venkatesh in negative role is good in places and hits the bull’s eyes.

Naan Rajavaga Pogiren Stills 2 586×368 Naan Rajavaga Pogiren review

On the technical front, GV Prakash’s musical score enhances the visual elements to a decent degree. This might be a new genre of music for the music director, but excels with a panache. Cinematography serves up to the good with a commendable visual composition and editing is sleek in places.

Overall, Naan Rajavaga Pogiren incisively travels with gripping moments that keeps us engaged.

Verdict: Can watch it once…

Yaaruda Mahesh – Tamil Movie Review

Yaaruda-Mahesh-Movie-StillsYaaruda Mahesh is a 2013 Tamil romantic comedy film directed by R. Madhan Kumar, starring Sundeep Kishan and Dimple Chopade. It also has the likes of Jagan, Srinath, Livingston, Uma Padmanaban, Swaminathan, Singamuthu and Nellai Siva supporting the lead.

The film has been shot around Chennai and Kerala. The film produced by Red Studios and Colour Frames. The film’s soundtrack and background score were composed by Gopi Sunder, while Raana handled the cinematography

Movie: Yaaruda Mahesh
Directed by R. Madhan Kumar
Produced by Antony Nawaz, Sathya Narayanan, R. Madhan Kumar
Written: R. Madhan Kumar
Star Cast: Sundeep Kishan as Shiva, Dimple Chopade as Sindhya, Jagan as Vasanth, Srinath as Randy, Livingston, Uma Padmanabhan, Swaminathan, Singamuthu, Nellai Siva, Venkat Sundar as Military, Sana Oberoi
Music: Gopi Sunder
Cinematography Raana
Studio: Colour Frames, Red Studios
Distributed by Anbu Pictures

Sudden release of heavy flood on newfangled themes conquered the theatres from last year and definitely, this should have propelled filmmaker Madhan Kumar to craft a unique tale that would surely keep its foot on winning square. A feel-good entertainer might not be an exact adjective to delineate this flick with every scene loaded with double entendre slangs that will let you wriggle your heads, especially if you’re watching this film with your family.

yaaruda mahesh 22 586×928 Yaaruda Mahesh review

Shiva (Sundeep) is a happy-go-lucky youngsters, who spends his time boozing with his friend Vasanth (Jagan). On his first sight, he falls in love with a beautiful girl Sindhya (Dimple Chopade) and she becomes pregnant much prior to her marriage. A single scene of conflict between two families followed by a short note – After few years shows them happily married with a beautiful baby boy. On an unexpected turn, Shiva clandestinely listens to the telephonic conversation between Sindhya and a person named ‘Mahesh’ only to get blown out of waters that he isn’t the father of their kid.

What unfolds next is Shiva’s vigorous hunt to find who this Mahesh is? Will he able to accomplish and reveal the true colours of his wife? Or is there something else that he doesn’t know what is actually happening?

Mature themes can be received well if it carrries a substantial element of narration or else a film like ‘Vicky Donor’ would have not fetched so many National awards. Madhan Kumar has picked a right script, but the illogical quotients just break down the entire work. First of all, an entire film laced with double entendres would obviously cause an annoyance. Secondly, what goes wrong with the script is it takes a long time for the film to reveal the conflict. The suspense element laced with humour is quite okay, but a series of flashbacks from few people hampers the momentum. Nevertheless, a big question arises during climax that would any woman have such a thought in reality. Well, revealing more than this will be a spoiler and you’ll watch for it over the screens.

On the performance level, Sundeep makes a casual appearance and having won incredible praises for his performance in Telugu and Hindi movies, this isn’t the kind of movie he should have opted his debut for. His tremendous work in ‘Shor in the City’ was so complimenting and this one is actually half the way down. Dimple Chopade looks beautiful with her makeover and costumes, but doesn’t find a right scope to perform. Jagan in the name of tickling your funny bones leaves you irked after a certain extent. Livingstone, Uma Padmanabhan, Swaminathan, Srinath and others have done a good job.

Yaaruda Mahesh 586×337 Yaaruda Mahesh review

Cinematography by Raana deserves appreciations for he offers the best visual treat in both talkie and song sequences and Gopi Sunder gives a mediocre effort over his songs and background.

On the whole, ‘Yaaruda Mahesh‘ doesn’t exceed your expectations for its onionskin elements in screenplay and if presented in a crisp manner sans the double entendre it would have been at least an average fare.

Verdict: A spoilsport with too many double entendres & illogical elements.

‘Singam 2′Completes Shoot

Singam-2-382One of the most awaited Kollywood sequels of the year, director Hari’s ‘Singam 2' is ready! Having shot in various locations, the most notable of them all being South Africa, the team has wrapped up its final schedule and the rush is into post production at the moment.

The crew is planning for a mid June release. Meanwhile, plans are on for audio launch of the movie on June 1st. The album of the film is scored by Devi Sri Prasad and the team tantalize that the songs are a real treat to the ears. The film has Suriya, Anushka, Hansika, Vivek and Santhanam, among others, to its star cast.

Photos: Surya-Gautham Menon’s Dhruva Natchathiram takes off

x02-1367486819-surya-03.jpg.pagespeed.ic.sj5oyvqKgbSurya and Gautham Menon are joining hands again. The combo, which had delivered hits like Kaakha Kaakha, Pachaikili Muthucharam and Vaaranam Aayiram, are teaming up for Dhruva Natchathiram.

Their last ventures together – Kaakha Kaakha, which was later remade in Hindi as Force, and romantic Vaaranam Aayiram – were successful at the Box Office.

The muhurat of the Dhruva Natchathiram was held today (May 2) at Gautham Menon’s Photon Kathas office. The movie launch function was organised around 7.30 in the morning in the presence of key members of the film unit.

Surya, who has been busy shooting for his upcoming Tamil action-drama Singam 2, took the day off to attend the launch, which also saw the presence of actor Parthepan, directors Ram, Prem Sai and Vignesh, writer Charu Nivetha, Madhan Karky, Vasanta Bhavan Ravi along with lyricist Madhan Karky.

Has Gautham Menon dropped Jai-starrer Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum

Tamil-Selvanum-Thaniyaar-Anjalum-Movie-First-LookThe latest talk in the industry is that the upcoming film Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum, produced by ace director Gautham Vasudev Menon, is as good as ‘dropped’.

Unconfirmed reports further say that though Jai, who plays the hero in Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum, has a huge faith in the film’s script, Menon is apprehensive about the film’s showing at the box-office and is said to be looking for an appropriate ‘producer-cum-distributor’ who can take up the film’s production from now onwards so that he (Menon) can remain unruffled by the film’s future at the box-office.

Despite featuring in some super-duper hit films, Jai hasn’t been able to build a ‘star’ status around himself and his stature in the industry is no better than the likes of Vimal and Sivakarthikeyan. These heroes, who are in the next rung after the likes of Dhanush and Simbu, are the safe bets of small and medium-budget producers. Jai, however, takes his own time in deciding as to whether a particular script would suit him or not.

In order to make Menon’s job easier, Jai is said to be approaching some leading producers and distributors as he tries his best to convince them to take up the film’s production and reap the benefits of the same at the box-office. It remains to be seen as to whether Jai succeeds in his efforts made on behalf of Menon.

Horror thriller Shivani given a UA certificate

Shivani_resizeDebutante director Sai Gokul Ramnath, who has been a former assistant to KV Anand, is in the mood to release Shivani. Just like the director, it is also a maiden production venture for Hansraj Saxena, who is funding this project under his banner Sax Pictures.

Featuring Nitin Sathya, Kavya Shetty, Lakshmi Nayyar and Baby Karthika, the movie was under review with the censor board for the last couple of days. Ever since the stills from the shoots made it online, it is clear that this entertainer is geared towards being a horror thriller. So if you are heading for the theater, be sure that you are all set to see eyes oozing in blood, damsels in distress and much more from this camp.

As expected the censor board officials have denied the movie a U and rightly given it a U/A certificate. That is not bad, considering the amount of gore the movie endorses. The list of performers also include Chandru,Vaali ,Murali, Neelima, Ammu, Srinath, Chamms and Subbu in supporting roles with editor J Laxman and the composer duo of Sreejith and Saachin. The release date of Shivani will soon be revealed so stay tuned!

The fate of his first outing will be decided with the film hitting screens worldwide tomorrow.

The film was kicked-off on July 23 in Chennai and has been wrapped up in a quick succession. Ethir Neechal has a modern-day story sans cheap comedy, vulgar dialogues or inappropriate scenes.

AndreaandFahaadFazilAndrea got the opportunity to act with an actor whom she had mentioned earlier that she was in love. Fahaad Fazil is a young Malayalam actor. He is also the son of the famous director Fazil. He had paired with Andrea in the Malayalam film Annayum Rasoolum.

This film was a great hit. Fahaad while speaking to the media said, “When I was acting in this film, I did not speak much to Andrea. When I had come to Chennai for editing, I felt that I was in love with Andrea. Now I am deeply in love with her.” This created a commotion in the industry. On the other hand, Andrea denied this love affair.

At this juncture, efforts were taken to make Andrea to pair with Fahaad Fazil in a Malayalam film titled North 24 Kaatham. Andrea has denied acting in this film. She feels that Fahaad may raise the love affair again.

Vishal appreciates Arjun’s daughter

VishalandArjundaughterPattathu Yaanai is a film which has Vishal in the lead role. Action King Arjun’s daughter Aishwarya is debuting as a heroine in this film. This film which is being produced by Michael Rayappan is being directed by Boopathy Pandian. The shooting of this film has taken place in Madurai, Trichy, Srirangam and Karaikudi.


Vishal while speaking about this film said, “I am donning the role of catering youngster. I try to start a hotel along with my friends. Whether I was able to do this is narrated in a comedy entertaining manner.

Boopathy Pandian has directed this film without giving any message and with the only intention of filling the coffers. Lots of expectations have risen since Arjun’s daughter Aishwarya has donned the female lead role in this film. Aishwarya has no fear for the camera. She has lots of talents. She does not look like a new face. She acts with dedication in every scene. She has lots of self confidence. We are happy that she has acted first in our film.”

Actress Aishwarya while speaking said, “Pattathu Yaanai is my first film. I have acted very arduously in this film. The role which I am donning this film has no connection with my real life. Vishal was very helpful to me. My father Arjun has also taught me lots of things. The film has come out well. Kissing sequences and glamour depends on the story. I approach them professionally. There were rumours that I fainted during the shooting. There is no truth in this news.”

Director Boopathy Pandian while speaking said, “I have directed a serious story in a comedy way. There are also fighting sequences in this film. Santhanam is donning dual roles in this film.”

Vathikuchi Movie Review

16-1363412449-vathikuchi-01Rating: 3.0/5

A little bit of romance, action, comedy, suspense and few heroic moments make a good entertaining film of standards that can attract audiences from all categories. Debutant Kinslin’s slick crime-thriller Vathikuchi with ignorable cliches passes with distinction in becoming a truly commercial entertainer for the masses. What works in the favour of the film, despite stiff criticism from the elite class audiences, is the offbeat presentation of a simple story. Sakthi (Dhileban), a share auto driver, likes to go out of his way to help strangers without any hidden agenda. Over the course of time, his helping tendency only grows stronger to the level where he confronts injustice and in turn earns the ire of three baddies.

Cut to his routine life – he is madly in love with Leena (Anjali), who likes to receive all attention, but wouldn’t reciprocate. As he tries desperately like any sane lover would do to impress her, the film shifts gears and introduces a series of events that would propel Sakthi into combat and self-protection mode. Who looks sexy in bikini/swimsuit – Nayantara, Namitha, Anushka, Priyamani…? Cast Your Vote With three baddies after his life, how does Sakthi save himself from the clutches of death? This forms the rest of the story.

The film kicks off convincingly with a pinch of suspense quite early on in the narrative. Three characters expressing their misfortune and pointing fingers at the same person, who they aspire to kill. What I really loved in this film is the fact that the script is not written keeping in mind a hero and three villains. The director very intelligently allows a series of events to let the character pit against each other allowing a revenge sort of story to develop. Also Read Paradesi Review One of the common criticisms was that the story needed a familiar face instead of Dhileban. I beg to differ by saying that it’s a story about a common man rising against anti-social activities. We can’t expect a common man to be Shahrukh Khan or Aamir Khan, can we?

Anjali claims to be on good terms with her co-stars

Anjali1Finding genuine friendship or feelings of warmth among actresses in any film industry is certainly a rare thing. Actress Anjali is, however, different from the rest of the pack whether it comes to choosing her roles or choosing her friends from within the fraternity of actresses.

It’s too early yet trade circles have already given ‘thumbs up’ to Anjali’s performance in the film Vathikuchi which hit the screens yesterday. On the eve of the film’s release, Anjali shared her views about the film and on other issues. Queried about her opting to pair up with newcomers at regular intervals without any qualms, Anjali replied that she chose her films based on the scripts and not the heroes.

“A lot is said about actresses indulging in rat race and being not friendly with each other. However, I share warm relations with all the heroines. Some of them recently wrote that Samantha and I are not on good terms; yet, it’s a fact that Samantha has said many times that she’s a great fan of me. It would be better if the writers check the versions of the news items they are getting before publishing them.

“In Telugu films, there is stiff competition among heroines. In my recent Telugu film, I starred along side Samantha and had a jolly time on the sets. In fact, Shruti Haasan and I are best friends and frequently talk to each other over phone. What is noticeable about Shruti is that she doesn’t have any starry airs about her despite being the great Kamal Haasan’s daughter. She has plenty to learn from and I’m making best use of our friendship.

“I don’t have time to react to all rumours about me; I feel it’d be better to concentrate in my career than reacting to all that has been said about me,” concludes Anjali.
