If you are surprised what made me wake up from the spell under which I was not updating my blog, it is the jolt I got from watching superstar Rajni in his new movie
Thalava, Kalakitta! DOT
Nobody but Rajini could have pulled it off so well.
Yesterday, after a long time, I moved my lazy rear out of the house to see a movie in theatre, to see Enthiran and what a way to re-energise your sunday afternoon and kick start the week.
My wife put it aptly as a coming of age film for Shankar and I cant agree more. If you had enjoyed Rajini’s role as villain in the early part of his career, I think you are in for a treat in this movie. I cant give you much more of the story, since I want you to go and get a few first hand experiences of thalaivar’s bliss yourself.
Cheers to Shankar for his phenomenal imagination and creativity. I always thought he had just an art of showing opulence but imagination was restricted to silly scenes like sticking a crow to hairdo of the heroine (Anniyan), Pots dancing (Mudalvan) and painting Rajini faces on hundreds of well-bred paunches (Sivaji). But, with this film, he broke all my opinions of him. The guy still has few tricks up his sleeve. I am looking forward to his next creation. Shankar if you are hearing me, may be a STARWARS kind of movie. If he has his way, he might convince the director to shoot on the moon.
Kalanidhi maran surely has business in his blood. Knew, exactly what to get behind, giving Shankar the free reign and now he is reaping the benefit.
The movie was constructed around Rajini and only Rajini with a huge belief (almost borderlining on something like a religious faith) expecting a miracle and the man delivered it like a god would.
Almost everybody in the movie like Danny Denzongpa, Santhanam, Karunas etc were few (one) scene wonders but looks like were too happy to show their faces in this magnum opus. Aishwarya Rai too didn’t have much of a role to talk about besides being an arm candy but I think she should gracefully retire now before she makes a joke of herself when hi-res camera can zoom on her real age.
At this point, I am reminded of the time when as a group we went for a Rajini movie from IISC Bangalore and the comment we heard from a fan when coming out of the movie. “Ticket vasool airichu. Thalaivar step ku rendu rooba tharalam” meaning “I got my ticket money back. Every step of Rajini is worth two rupees” I would say for this movie, Rajini’s step is worth much more.
Enthiran: A perfect Rajini movie in every sense and an wholesome entertainer. I have only one wish to put forth to Rajini.
“Give me more”
or in his style
