Dasaavathaaram Stills

Now that the Sivaji fever has almost died out, Kamal's Dasaavathaaram can start taking centerstage as the next, eagerly-anticipated Tamil biggie. The first official photos ( since the publicity stills released at the time of the film's launch) from the film are out. All the photos feature the 'regular' Kamal and so we don't get a peek at even one of the 10 avatars. Considering that this is the actor who still hasn't revealed the secrets behind how he played the dwarf in Aboorva Sagodharargal, this secrecy is no big surprise!

I'm not sure how long they can maintain the secrecy though. Afterall, even photos from Sivaji(including a few featuring Mottai Boss) made it out inspite of all the security. There are a few photos of Kamal in different get-ups floating around but we can't say which of these is real. I am ofcourse eager to get a peek at Kamal's disguises but I also hope they don't get out unofficially since that will kill some of the suspense, surprise and excitement when I see the film (that was the case with those Mottai Boss pics. Watching Rajni get out of the helicopter with his tonsured head, I really wished I hadn't seen those pics and that the getup had come as a surprise).

While on Kamal, here's something I got from Maverick... (original source is here)

"Almost all has been quiet on the Kamal front of late. Of course, that means that something is brewing. The mystery was finally resolved through reliable sources. Kamal’s next movie will be Marma Yogi (”mysterious saint”, shall we say?), directed and produced by himself. With a curious title, the surprises are that it’s supposed to be an action thriller — and I thought Kamal would direct only ’serious’ movies (Hey Ram, Virumaandi) —and that the music will be done by AR Rahman. Talks are on to rope in a Bollywood heroine, as the movie will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Oscar Ravichandran, UTV and Adlabs are all in talks related toproduction and distribution. The movie might be launched in January. We can see that the domain name is already registered and it mentions Raaj Kamal Films International, Kamal’s production house.

Marma Yogi is also an old MGR flick, known as the first Tamil movie to receive an ‘A’ certification. Kamal’s penchant for old titles (Apoorva Sagodharargal, Sathi Leelavathi, etc.) continues.

Junior Vikatan, the Tamil weekly and the Chennai edition of Deccan Chronicle too sniffed out portions of this news recently. After several rumours and announcements regarding Kamal’s next movie earlier, let’s hope this is the final one."

Another news is Aishwarya Rai and Priety Zinta are mentioned in the wikipedia page on *Marma Yogi*. The former really comes as a real surprise to me (if true) ;-).

Also, Kamal is going to produce a movie with Rajini playing the lead - is another news floating around! It would be interesting if it is true!! (I think BIG BOSSES have decided to give these stupid thalapathis, thala-is, chiyaan-s a run for their oney!!!

BTW, Kamal looks very young - especially the one you picked out!!

padam odala nnu vayitherichal vidunga pona pogatum.

You should be either BO casher like Superstar or do some real good movies like Kamal (without caring BO). The younger crop falls miserably short of both.

even shakeela was a box office casher once dude

yes i agree younger generation fails short of giving good movies like kamal consistently

but that doesnt apply for rajini dude

younger generation have their own set of masala devlieries and takers

just coz more crowd enjoys rajini masala, that doesnt mean he is special :) :) for he repeats / delivers the same masala crap :) :)

apala - u got it :) :)

A lump in the throat, is that for all the hoopla, one simply hopes it doesn't crash just as hard. Remember Aalavandhan... deja vu...
