Sridevi's English Vinglish gets grand opening at TN Box Office - Intensely Brilliant, Motivational and Meaningful movie

Sridevi's English Vinglish gets grand opening at TN Box Office

Ajith Kumar has proved again that he is king when it comes to film opening. The actor, who has done cameo in yesteryear actress Sridevi comeback movie English Vinglish, has managed to pull the audience to theatres, as the film has got a flying start at Tamil Nadu Box Office.

The early reports emerging from traders say that the Tamil version of English Vinglish did wonderful business in the first weekend. The Kollywood version made far better business than the Hindi version. Nonetheless, there was lots of demand for tickets for both versions in Chennai. On Saturday and Sunday, the movie ran for packed house in all the multiplexes in Chennai.

Traders say that English Vinglish largely banked on Ajith Kumar fans and family audience and it won thumbs up from both the sections. The film was released in 147 screens (Tamil version screened at 110 screens). However, it has collected more than eight cores in the first two days in India and the exact figure is yet to be revealed.

English Vinglish is directed by Gauri Shinde.

The movie also features Mehdi Nebbou, Adil Hussain, Sulbha Deshpande and others in the cast. While Ajith has done cameo for the Tamil version, Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in the same role in the Hindi version.

All the Thala Ajith Kumar fans might not see their matinee-idol for a long duration on the screens, but his limited role has a good impact to a greater extent. Thanks to the actor for accepting a cameo role in a meaningful film.

Triple role in Next film

The latest buzz in kollywood is about Ajith doing his 53rd flick with director Shiva (Sirutthai director).

The propsed movie is being produced by the famous Vijaya Vauhini productions.

Director confirms that work is going on as scheduled. “I am working on the final stages of the script as of now.

Probe him on Thala’s reported three-dimensional role in his film and he says, “With a super actor like Ajith in hand, the film will be a mass emotional entertainer. You will get to see an all new Ajith in a role which will also be a fresh one to him.”

Anushka Shetty join Ajith in next film

Anushka Shetty’s Thaandavam opposite Vikram is all set to hit screens, but the buzz is that Anushka is doing Ajith’s 53rd film, which will be directed by Siva.

Anushka Shetty has acted with almost all the leading actors of Tamil and Telugu. But she has not worked with Ajith Kumar. Now, it seems like the actress will make it possible, as she has been offered his next movie.

Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar refused to get any remuneration for his cameo role he played for Sridevi’s comeback film English Vinglish. Director Gauri Shinde, her husband and producer Balki, Sridevi and her husband Boney Kapoor all have praised Ajith for his simplicity.

Thala flew to Mumbai for the shooting at his own cost and also stayed at a hotel at his own cost. Sources said that producer R Balki was again and again requesting Ajith that he would at least bear the flight ticket and hotel stay.

But Ajith declined politely and firmly, leaving everyone impressed with his gesture. All have been surprised by the friendliness and simplicity of an actor of his stature.

English Vinglish is the story of an Indian housewife, played by Sridevi who struggles with the alien language and tries her best to cope with it. She does not know to speak English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large.

Thala Ajith is making a cameo appearance in the Tamil version of Sridevi’s much awaited comeback film English Vinglish, directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R.Balki. In the Hindi version, the same role has been done by Amitabh Bachchan and in fact he has completed shooting his part. Madhavan, who has starred in many Tamil and Hindi films, was first thought to play the ‘guest role’ in the Tamil version which has now been offered to Ajith Kumar.

Ajith has finished doing his part in English vinglish. Now, the team has released Ajith’s look from the film. Thala looks trim and fit. The actor has sported stubble and he looks cool in the rugged avatar and looks as handsome as always.

Ajith's look in his cameo appearance for English Vinglish has been revealed and fans and celebs have been going gaga over it since yesterday. The one constant feedback about this look is the George Clooney resemblance.

Ajith looks truly casual with the 'salt and pepper' hair, trimmed beard and stylish black spectacles. Will the same look be carried over to his upcoming movie with Vishnuvardhan as well or does he have some other surprise up his sleeve.

The beefed-up arms of Ajith are another notable aspect of this English Vinglish look.

Billa 2 Movie Review - Story: Loyalty above life; that's David Billa's maxim. Anyone who lets him down is dead meat.

Billa 2 Movie Review
Billa 2 Movie Review

Billa 2 is a medium-paced action thriller with lots of blood-shed but mercifully no gore. The film that is a prequel to the 2007 Ajith Kumar film Billa, sends out just message. If people are inconvenient or disloyal, just kill them all and come back alone.

So through the two and a half hour duration; Ajith (David Billa) turns himself into a mean-killing machine; who is adept at using a knife, a gun or even his bare fists to pound people to pulp.

The narrative is linear; it talks of the rise and rise of Billa, who finds himself virtually jobless in a refugee camp for a brief while. Destiny sends him on a chore to deliver fish. Voila, there are diamonds in the fish belly and before you know Billa is fishing diamonds out of the black soil. He is also eliminating a few bad guys along the way at regular intervals; almost like a terminator.

The action movies from the South of India to Goa; and also nestles lovingly in some exotic locations in Georgia, Eastern Europe. But almost all other aspects of this film including the very weak music, the practically non-existent Kollywood dancing and buffoonery are minimal because the entire focus is on showing Billa to be a relentless killer.

Not one to rest on his laurels, he moves from diamond-smuggling to dealing in drugs in a jiffy. And he makes even quicker progress to smuggling illegal arms. It is as if the director is a tearing hurry to see Billa rise to the top of his heap. No soul-searching excuses for this hero, who by the time of the end-credits becomes the top villain.

So is there any emotional connect in the film at all or not?

Yes, Billa has a handicapped sister in Madras (this is a prequel remember—so Chennai is referred to as Madras.) But the sister conveniently dies after just one scene and Billa is left baby-sitting her young daughter Parvathy Oomanakuttan (Jasmine.) Parvathy is a Miss India 2008 winner and is fortunate to have got the big break.

Coming back to the film, it's clear that Jasmine is infatuated with Billa but he of course has no time for her puppy-love. Instead he prefers to make eyes at his boss Sudhanshu Panday's (Abbasi) girl Bruna Abdullah (Sameera). But even this love story is lacklustre because Billa is quintessentially a gun-guy and not your average roses-type.

While the girls have been short-changed by the script-writer and given extended cameos; the two villains—Abbasi and Dimitri—have their screen moments. Both Bollywood exports to Tamil cinema; these good-looking guys manage to make their mark. Especially so in the case of Vidyut, who is a martial arts expert and whose screen introduction is truly impressive.

Coming to the protagonist—Ajith's entry on screen at the multiplex where we watched Billa 2 was greeted with deafening whistles. Though his screen character is uni-dimensional, Ajith manages to charm with his lop-sided smile and some heavyweight dialogue. Check this out--`another man's fear is our strength'; `to be my friend you don't need any qualifications—but to be my enemy you certainly need status.' Whistle, clap, clap when more of these lines are thrown at an audience that has put Ajith on a pedestal long enough.

Tip off: If you're a Ajith fan—Billa 2 is a must. If you're an action aficionado, it's a treat. If you're neither, then don't bother.


Trade Talk and Public Talk

The most anticipated gangster thriller of the year Billa 2 finally released to fan frenzy all over the world this weekend. Ajith, Parvathy Omanakuttan and Bruna Abdullah play prominent roles in the prequel to the blockbuster Billa.

The movie saw phenomenal opening and advance bookings have all but sold out. Reviews have been mixed so it would be a wait and watch for producers in the weeks to come.

One of the very few movies made this year that is high on style quotient.

Ajith is a sizzling hero on screen.

Ajith's unique acting style and charm is a hit amongst the Tamil movie lovers, especially the youth. He has a huge fan following, which fondly calls him the "ultimate super star" or "Thala" (Leader in Tamil). He is calm and composed.

The reason for the immense popularity of Ajith, who has so many male fans and many times more female fans, is his bountiful youthfulness and the razor-sharp shrewdness. In an industry of glamour and hype, this is the story of a man who made it big without a godfather.

In "Kaadal Mannan", he was described as,"He has put his signature in the hearts of young girls.....! Instead of himself going after any girl, the girls themselves go after him---such a handsome male he is!".....

Ajith is very famous for his loyal fan base. He is the Tamil actor having the most number of registered fan clubs.

Ajith New looks in Mangatha
Ajith New looks in Mangatha

Irrespective of the age of the heroes, Kollywood has always gone to great heights to preserve the hero with an ever-young look. The moviegoers too love to see their hero with a flawless face and hair that waves in the air. Ajith has been a trend setter for many styles in Kollywood and he is undoubtedly the only hero who looks handsome in any attire he sports. Now in ‘Mankatha’ he will sport a look which director Venkat Prabhu is confident will be a trendsetter in films that follow.

Some news which has leaked from the ‘Mankatha’ team, which has returned from shooting in Mumbai, has revealed that Trisha plays Saniana, the daughter of a Mumbai goon who rules the slums of Dharavi. Our hero Ajith plays Vinayak. The director and hero were looking for a new look for the protagonist, trying out many styles and finally it seems Ajith suggested a new look, which was the casual salt and pepper hairstyle he usually sports. The director immediately seems to have liked the look and immediately gave it his thumbs up!

Now the fans will see their “Thala” sporting this salt and pepper hairstyle throughout the film. Venkat has also opined that this hairdo goes well with the character that Ajith portrays. It reminds us the George Clooney look. Clooney has been voted many times by People’s magazine as the sexiest man alive! With Ajith sporting a similar look we can be pretty sure it is going to look natural and be a hit with the audience.

Director Venkat Prabhu is also assisting the film’s editing process with Yuvan working on the music portions. Venkat Prabhu is believed to be quite excited about this project because he has shot the film with his favorite hero. The entire team of ‘Mankatha’ is confident of the film being welcomed by the Tamil audience worldwide


Ajith Kumar's official letter on dissolving fans club

Ajith dissolving fans club
Ajith dissolving fans club

On his 40th Birthday, the billa actor in his statement he said that,

I started my career with 'Amaravathi' and now my 50th film 'Mankatha' is all set for release. I would like to this opportunity to thank my co-stars, filmmakers, producers, technicians, journalists, fans and public and my family members. I have been over a deep thought making a decision upon an issue and now I felt like announcing it.

I have never used my fans for my personal interests and will never do such things at any point of time. If my films are good, they have the rights to appreciate it and on pars if not done well, they own the rights to criticize and advise me. At the same time, I am clear about the fact that all my fans are not the members of my fans club. I have never differentiated my fans on this ground.

'The fans club members haven't been affirmative towards my requests and there is no unity amongst them. It makes me so distressed to see that some of them have misused the fans club identity in political arenas.

I also believe and want the fans to be involved in social activities without being a heaviness for their family members. Social services need not be carried on only with the support of Fans Club, it's enough if one has a good motive and thoughts.

Thereby, I would like to make it clear that from my birthday, i.e. from May 1, 2011 onwards I have decided to dissolve my Fans Club.

At this point of time, when the entire globe is going for an abrupt transition in terms of development and advancement, I don't think 'Fans Club' is a real need for situation. An actor needn't have any connection on any grounds apart from his profession. It's more than enough if people feel it good, appreciate or criticize his performance and thusly making his career effective.

Live and Let me Live!!!!

Kaadal Kottai (1996)

Kadhal Kottai is a 1996 Tamil film directed by Agathiyan, in which Ajith Kumar and Devayani play lead roles, apart from Heera Rajgopal, Thalaivasal Vijay, and Karan who played important roles.

Kadhal Kottai's director, Agathiyan, earned cult status after he razed down conventional rules of love in this film. He made his lead pair fall in love without ever having seen each other. While fresh-faced Devayani lived in Ooty and wrote letters, Ajith worked in Jaipur, handling his fiercely attracted boss, Heera as well. The plot revolves around two introvert hearts falling in unconditional love without seeing each other until the climax

This was the second film by Agathiyan-Ajith combo following Vaanmathi.

The film has a nail-biting climax, which spawned dozens of clones. It won Agathiyan the National Award for best direction, and firmly earned superstar status for both Ajith and Devayani.

This period also saw the escalation of a romance with Heera which, to put it mildly, turned out to be turbulent.

He became the most sought after actor in Tamil after the stupendous success of Aasai and Kaadal Kottai. Kaadal Kottai also grossed a lot of money. The film was the second blockbuster of Ajith grossing almost $3 million at the box office.

I can talk about all my problems to her. I am lucky to have her. Since she too is from this industry, she understands my problems better."
