Launch!

Today was a big day for Kodambakkam as three big films had their launches...


Ajith's Tirupathi had its launch at AVM studios. The biggest surprise was the chief guest - Ajith's arch-rival Vijay.

It looks like Vijay and Ajith are finally stopping letting their reel life rivalry spill over into real life. I've complained in the past about the battle waged by the two through dialogs and songs in their respective movies. And I don't recall seeing the two of them together at any movie launch or award function either. But Vijay giving up the title Tirupathi to Ajith and Perarasu, the director of Vijay's Tiruppaachi and upcoming Sivakasi, directing Tirupathi seem to indicate a thawing in their relationship. The two posed together like lifelong friends at the poojai. Now lets hope that this friendship extends onscreen too and they both stop taking childish potshots at one another.

PS1: The film's heroine is Sadha(sigh!) and she was there too but IMO, Shalini looks more like a heroine.

PS2: What's it with Ajith and his sunglasses? He was wearing them at the Paramasivan poojai too though both these poojais happened indoors.

---------------------


Another big movie launch on the same day was the launch of Sarathkumar's 100th film Thalaimagan. From the attendees it does look rather sparsely attended with no other actors showing up.

-------------------


Jeeva's film E(first Hindi D, then A Aa and now E. Looks like the current fad is to use letters as movie titles!) was also launched the same day. The producer, naturally, is Jeeva's dad R.B.Choudhary.

Surprisingly, this seems to be the most well-attended of the three launches. Guess R.B.Choudhary's clout was the reason for that. Kamal was the chief guest and both Ajith and Vijay made it too. I also spotted Sarathkumar & Radhika, Simbhu, Srikanth, K.S.Ravikumar, S.J.Suryah, Jeeva and Sibi apart from the film's heroine Nayanthara and cast members Vivek and Prakashraj.

"PS2: What's it with Ajith and his sunglasses? He was wearing them at the Paramasivan poojai too though both these poojais happened indoors."

Maybe he is going for the "Remo" look...trying to steal some female fans away from Madhavan. Although his appearance is in stark contrast to the appearance of the typical South Indian gang around him (except Shalini, of course). And Sada looks like Nadigai Sada...she could be cast in Sada Vijayam :)

Couple of years ago, a Kannada movie was made with the title A. And I thought I saw Arvind Swami in one of the pictures.

very, very nice to see 'Shakthi' after a long time...but
very, very disappointed that she's cut her "thoallgallil aadum koondhall!" My friends and I used to argue over who was better looking-- Shaloo or Sims? I think Shalini is the more natural beauty with classical features, expressive eyes and thick tresses (adhu oru kanaa kaalaam...!!)...but when Sims is made-up...oh, thats a different story altogether...

I had a post too about this rivalry and surprisingly titled it as 'star wars' during my initial days of blogging. (My 4th post)

Good to see them slowly releasing the tension.

I am not that optimistic about Ajith's association with Perarasu and P.Vasu, since both are commercial directors. What Ajith needs currently is a director like Bala to extract his potential!! Still I wish him the best to atleast remain in the race..
