Rajni-Kamal Together - Poi?

Seeing Rajni and Kamal together on screen is probably the dream of all Tamil cinema fans. The two giants of Tamil cinema last shared the screen in Thillu Mullu, where Kamal had a guest role as the lawyer who saves Rajni during the climax. But rumours about the momentous pairing happening again arise periodically. To recount two recent examples, Rajni was supposed to have a cameo in Kamal's ambitious-but-stalled Marudhanayagam while initial reports talked about Kamal making an appearance in Chandramukhi owing to his closeness to Sivaji's family.

Indiaglitz has resurrected this rumor now that the famous duo's guru K.Balachander has started his 101st film Poi. The news report says that KB has urged both his finds to be part of the film. Ofcourse, neither the director nor the 2 actors have confirmed the news, which begs the question as to where the news came from! And one can't forget that a similar rumor was started when the director's previous film Paarthaale Paravasam was launched too.

But inspite of the disappointments over the untrue past rumors and the unsupported nature of this particular news report, I can't deny that a tiny part of me is salivating over the news and hoping that it comes true :-)

a) They c'd appear on Poi sharing the screen

b) they c'd appear discretely

c) one of them c'd appear

d) Poi

Anyway, Poi supposedly being played by two newcomers, the plot should accomodate the charisma of Kamal and Rajini, if at all the news is true.

Man! The expectations for this are being built up for so long that, if and when it actually happens, I feel it is going to be totally chappai!!!!!!
It is going to either result in some totally contrived plot point to accommodate them. OK! I admit. All plot points are contrived, but this may take it to the extremes. Or, they will just make a token appearance, a la Kamal in 'Nala Damayanthi', which will again fall flat.
All said and done, people DO want to watch a movie for the story, screenplay, direction yada yada yada...and not JUST because Kamal & Rajini are making a token guest appearance.
Unless KB can get reeeeeeeally creative, which at 75, I seriously doubt.....

I remember the last scene in ThilluMullu when Kamal shows up.!

I think this might be something like that.

I doubt if they would ever act together again...But if we are all lucky enough...they might..! Who knows.!

As a fan of Rajnini ( actor - like 6-60 varai, Mullum Malarum not action!!! ) and Kamal, I wish it happens..

gp, one of the (anticlimactic) options would be the titles showing the film's poojai(like they did for 'suyamvaram') and so rajni and kamal appear onscreen together :)

kaps, no surprise there. the film's name and the nature of the news lends itself to such a title :) i see u got the news from a diff. source. does 2 diff. news items mean there is more chance of it being true? we can only hope :)

vc, very true. the 2 appearing together may be historic but won't help the box-office result much if the movie stinks!

me too, nice imagination. or poojaila ottu kettingalo :)

narayanan, yep. the fan in me wishing for the same :)

vatsan, hoping thats not true :)

bhuvan, de niro played a bad guy in 'heat' right? don't think either rajni or kamal could do that.

lemme throw out what i've thot for long would be the ideal vehicle for them. there was this movie with I think sarathkumar and anandraj(i havent seen it). the storyline was something along the lines of they r both criminals in jail and they break out and help a young pair of lovers unite. throw in a heroine, flashback and the same # of duets, fights, etc. for both and IMO that would be a perfect masala storyline for rajni and kamal :)

frankly, i dont think it'll happen...there'll be too much pressure weighing on the minds of the stars, esp. the thought of their fans overreacting to the minutest of differences in roles, screen time, etc...dont think that even KB will be able to pull it off...
