One must say filmmaker Siva has learnt the art of handling the mass-quotient of Ajith Kumar on screen. Having worked together in three films already, the fourth outing of the director-actor combo, Viswasam makes it bigger than what it had originally promised.
Be it Kamal Haasan’s caravan, where he gets into the disguise of Indian thaatha, or the other vehicle that carries food and production equipment for films, every single van, caravan or truck of the cinema industry halts at Vadapalani. This barren land, located along Nerkundram Paathai, has a story which is as old as the Tamil film industry.
When the trailers of much-anticipated flicks of January 2019, Petta and Viswasam, were out on the Internet, there was also a ‘Vadivelu version’ that was released hours after the original. Not just Rajinikanth or Ajithkumar, whenever a trailer of a highly anticipated movie gets released, a Vadivelu version follows out of nowhere.
Women-centric movies are on the rise in Kollywood in recent years thanks to the two female superstars of the industry, Jyothika and Nayanthara, who pioneered and sent out a ray of hope in the male-dominant system by starring in heroine-led movies and laid a new path of feminism in K’town.
