Haha that way, Kamal's character in Chaachi 420 was Jaiprakash 'Paswan'. An immigrant/Dalit character in Mumbai Razz but yeah, in mainstream Tamil cinema, he has been hesitant to be even this open.

Good catches, all. Angela was a big miss. Stares at you in the face, but you miss it because of Angela being the name, a la Angela James. But crap, I did know (bloody wrote on it here: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1s1rn35). Poovaraaghan and Rohini, good catches. But again, Poovaraghavana karuppA dhAn kAttaNumA? Rohini also appeared dark, though that can be put down to her working class background in the film.

Don't mistake me, I'm as much a Kamal fan as anyone. Just wantedly playing the Devil's advocate for fun Razz

indhu paper reporting in tabloid style


'லிங்கா' பிரச்சினையைப் பொறுத்தவரை தயாரிக்கும் போது இருந்த பிரச்சினைகள் என்பதை எல்லாம் தாண்டி ரஜினி என்ற ஒரு தனி திரைப்படக் கலைஞரை குறிவைக்கும் அளவுக்கு பின்னணி அரசியல் சார்ந்து பிரச்சினைகள் வளர்ந்து வருகிறது. இதனை ரஜினி உணர்ந்து அமைதி களைக்க வேண்டும் என்பதே கோடம்பாக்கத்தின் எதிர்பார்ப்பாக இருக்கிறது.

R C Sakthi, who was the FIRST to launch Kamal as hero in a movie, is no more

Sakthi's commercially successful movies, however, were 'dharma yudhdham' (Rajini-Sridevi-AgAya gangai- oru thanga radhaththil) & 'siRai' (Lakshmi / Rajesh / MSV).

All these days I simply assumed R C Sakthi to be of KH-age-group (because they were seen as peers as his age was hitherto unknown) Embarassed

He died at 75 and was much older than KH.

Wrote something lengthy on Guna and its music. Since it is more of Kamal than Raaja, posting it here.

woah. this is immense work the clap though on gods do read Tho.Pa's now infamous book(guess it would sold in hundreds becos of the movie Smile )
Brahman=Viruman and their backstories with 2 interpretations made the first cut(as per Tho.Pa)which had more scenes for Nallaima Naicker
but was chopped off owing to the length, Ettapan/Nallamma Naicker link was anew though just wish you didn't extend the movie parallels to bull taming 
of Virumandi/Gemini(vera aale kedaikillaiya)

check this blog which borrows many stories from the book http://villagegods.blogspot.in/2010/03/karumathur-moonu-sami-koil.html

another nitpick, on the poster link to Brahma in your comments section, edhu gandhi sethutara level ignoramus given it was very pungent
 and it was Cartoonist.Madan;s idea and he made sure that was heard by shamelessly talking over it across many interviews he did with KH during the movie promotions.

Thank you Wizz. Just read the link. Now remember reading this before too. Shall check the book out. On Gemini/Virumandi  LOL yOv why would I compare the sequences? I just meant this was a hat tip to that film on an obvious superficial plane given the direct Veerapandiya Kattabomman reference. Nallamma Naicker is the subtle link.

But yeah, I also know the story, folklore, etc. and had made a broad connection with Virumandi and Peikaaman. But the way the layers just kept coming as one pealed continuously was a revelation during this watch and was mindblowing to say the least.

On the Madan thing, no idea whatsoever. Interview pAkkala and did not connect the 2 at all.

But then, taking this ahead, the sheer narcissism in him playing God is enjoyable Razz especially evident here: https://t.co/Rai5souQR0 (from 2:30). The sheer showmanship of kamba suththi kAtradhu to follow "enga Deivammunnu engaLukku kAmi" is Very Happy Also how awesome is Raaja. Unless he understood every layer in the film, indha music impossible. And it would have taken him 2 sessions to discuss story/song placements and half an hour to compose them? ManushanA ivan...

Munk,  that 'ring' connection Annalakshmi & pechiyamman, superb find again! and i have a doubt. the viruman's well near which he buries his appatha & and he and annalakshmi meets and decide to elope away is different from the one they both romances. (romance in the sense, the scene where anna finds kothalathevan & co angreeliy watching them, in reflection and after which, she takes him to show the sickle) that well is a bigger, square shaped well which seem to be ஊரின் பொதுக்கிணறு kinda thing. its the same well where காண்டாமணி song happens too. in that too big well only lies another small well, inside which, the original 'virumaandi' lies arrested as a god by pechiyamman(acc to the legend)

Also, comments'ayum paduchurungOv. One fellow called B has commented something which has led to another thing. I don't think there can be a comprehensive analysis on this film. Incubate senjuttu 1 yr kazhichi pAthA thirumba edhAdhu varum pOlrukku...

yes, all are wells and the film has many important scenes in wells. even the violence scene where kamal hides kondaraasu's wife inside well, yes this movie is a magic box! things keep coming endlessly!!

and one more long standing question, who exactly wrote that karumathur kaattukkulle song? and is that raja's own composition or not? and if it was picturised iam very eager to see how it was done!! we wud hav got one more like iranyan naadagam!!

that apart, the song itself, musically a superb one! a song full of many mini-songs! and tempo kinda keeps increasing in each song! whatte!! the clap the clap the clap

Written by Muthulingam says database. Of course Raaja inputs'um irundhurukkum. Raaja confirm'aa wrote Sandiyare Sandiyare, Annalakshmi Annalakshmi and Kombula Poovasuthi. Unna Vida written by Kamal. michchamellAm official'a it says Muthulingam but considering foreshadowing plot, folklore, etc. kaNdippA Raaja inputs illAma irundhurukkAdhu.

no i was referring about the reason why it was chopped from the film(not only for lenght reasons but) a news which appeared in dailythanthi saying கருமாத்தூர் காட்டுக்குள்ளே song (lyrics/tune?) belonged to some other person

http://tamil.filmibeat.com/news/kamal-n7.html

ஆடியோ கேசட்டில் இடம் பெற்றிருக்கும் கருமாத்தூர் காட்டுக்குள்ளே என்ற பாடல்தன்னுடையது என்று மதுரையைச் சேர்ந்த வில்லிசைக் கலைஞர் ஒருவர் அடுத்த பிரச்சனையை எழுப்பினார்.

Says it got subsided when film released. So nambara mAri illa. Also Raaja from his studio letting plagiarized stuff... Nevair, unless context is there like with Kanavu Kaanum Vaazhkai. Also the song not there in the film didn't make any difference. As it is, 2 lines appear. And boy they are effective enough. Rest of song picturized there as Virumandi gets hacked would've killed flow.

Raja need not plagiarize! And also its not clear what was that madurai villuppaattu artist claiming as his own, tune or lyrics or the story concept... if one looks at possibilities, i try to guess something like, that artist had  a basic tune which raja took and made his own. also to note that the complexity of a song like karumathur kaattukkulle, and it having raja stamp in many places, easily vouch ownership to Raja. I feel kamal shud hav(even now possible) released this song like how he released virumaandi making,along with that drunkenspeech video!

Hallov. idha (highlight/block senja portions) veLiya chonneengannA idhu dhAn plagiarism'mbAnga. This is a non-issue to start with. I get that you mean an inspiration and of course Karumathur Kaattukkulle in films and all All Indhiya level'la only Raaja fossible. and inspiration matter'e sellAdhu when you say 
//or the story concept//

Kamal & muLLum malarum

Those of us who read forums / cinema news items for a long time may be already aware of this...

Dir Mahendran wrote:
நான் சினிமாவுக்குள் வர பல காரணங்கள் இருக்கலாம். மற்றவர்களைப் போல விரும்பி வந்தவன் கிடையாது. இழுத்து வரப்பட்டவன். என் முதல் படம் இயக்கத்திற்கு முன்பு பல படங்களுக்கு கதை - வசனம் எழுதியிருக்கிறேன். அதில் கமல்ஹாசன் நடித்திருக்கிறார். நல்ல சினிமாக்களைப் பற்றி இருவரும் நிறைய பேசுவோம். எனக்கு ஆரம்பத்தில் இருந்து தமிழ் சினிமா மீது பெரும் வெறுப்பு. இயக்குநராக வேண்டும் என்ற கட்டாயம் ஏற்பட்ட போது 'முள்ளும் மலரும்' எனது முதல் படம். அதை நான் ஆசைப்பட்டது போல எடுக்க வேண்டும் என நினைத்தேன்.

என்னோட நினைப்புக்கு ஏற்ற ஒளிப்பதிவாளர் கிடைக்கவில்லை. அதை நான் கமல் சாரிடம் போய் சொன்னேன். அவர் தான் பாலு மகேந்திராவை எனக்கு அறிமுகப்படுத்தி வைத்தார். இருவரும் இணைந்து பணியாற்றினோம். இன்றும் 'முள்ளும் மலரும்' பற்றி பேசுவதற்கு கமல் தான் காரணம். நான் காரணமல்ல.

அப்படத்தின் தயாரிப்பாளருக்கும், பாலு மகேந்திராவுக்கும் சில கருத்து வேறுபாடுகள் ஏற்பட்டன. அப்படத்துக்கு தேவையான மிக முக்கியமான ஒரு காட்சியை எடுக்காமலேயே விட்டிருந்தேன். தயாரிப்பாளர் அப்போது படத்தைப் பார்த்துவிட்டு வசனமே இல்லை என்று என்னை திட்டினார். என் மீது பயங்கர கோபம். அந்த கோபத்தால் முக்கியமான காட்சியை காட்சிப்படுத்த பணம் தரமாட்டேன் என்றார். "செந்தாழம் பூவில்" பாடலுக்கு முன்பு உள்ள காட்சி அது. அக்காட்சியும் வேண்டாம், பாடலும் வேண்டாம் தூக்கி விடுங்கள் என்று தயாரிப்பாளர் கூறிவிட்டார்.

ஆழ்வார்பேட்டைக்கு சென்று கமலிடம் "ஏன் இயக்குநரானோம் என்று இருக்கிறது" என புலம்பினேன். ஆனால் உதவி பண்ணுங்கள் என நான் கேட்கவில்லை. என் மீது இருந்த நம்பிக்கையில், தயாரிப்பாளரிடம் சென்று பேசினார். முக்கியமான காட்சி என்கிறார், வீம்பு பிடிக்காதீர்கள், நல்ல பையன் என்று தயாரிப்பாளரிடம் கூறினார். தயாரிப்பாளர் ஒப்புக் கொள்ளவில்லை என்றவுடன் தயாரிப்பாளரிடம் கூறிவிட்டு சத்யா ஸ்டுடியோவில் தனது பணத்தைப் போட்டு அக்காட்சியை எடுக்க காரணமாக இருந்தார்.

அன்று மட்டும் கமல் உதவி செய்யவில்லை என்றால், 'முள்ளும் மலரும்' இல்லை. அதனைத் தொடர்ந்து 'உதரிப்பூக்கள்', 'நெஞ்சத்தைக் கிள்ளாதே' என எதுவும் இருந்திருக்காது. என் வாழ்நாள் முடியும்வரை நான் கமலை மறக்க மாட்டேன். எனக்கு கிடைக்கும் பாராட்டு அனைத்திற்கு மூலதனமே கமல் தான்" என்று தெரிவித்தார்.

VM must definitely be aware of the BO results and news on kabAli.

One sample:
http://indianexpress.com/article/entertainment/regional/rajinikanth-kabali-day-4-box-office-collections-radhika-apte-tamil-movie-2934930/


Rajinikanth’s Kabali day 4 box office collections: A spectacular success, movie earns Rs 400 crore

According to verified collection data provided by Kabali's producer Kalaipuli S Dhanu to IndianExpress.com, the Rajinikanth-starrer has earned about Rs 400 crore already.

In spite of this, deliberately talking as "கபாலியின் தோல்வி" exposes his vakkiram & vayiththerichchal.
