SHOWBITS: Vijay sitting pretty
Malay Mail News Daily (Malaysia)By: Mohan Tambirajah Jan 13
REMAKES seem to work well for Tamil star Vijay. Ghilli, a rehash of telegu hit Okkadu did wonders for his career. Vijay’s Ponggal offering Aathi, a rehash of another Telugu blockbuster Athanokkade, is expected to maintain his status a top-draw.
The film, produced by Vijay’s father Chandrasekhar, is released by Suriyan Arts in conjunction with its silver jubilee presentation. Director Ramana who was responsible for Vijay’s make-or-break film Thirumalai, is back working with the actor.
The pairing of Vijay-Trisha, which made Ghilli and Thirupachchi a success, is once again retained. Sai Kumar, who made strides as a hero in Telugu and Kannada films, plays the villain. Ramana is confident the final product will be well-received and keep intact Vijay’s reputation as a hot commodity.
Vijay plays a college student in the film which has its usual fair share of action, romance and sentiments to cater to the wants of his fans. The supporting cast include Prakashraj, Vijayakumar, Nasser, Manivannan, Livingstone and Seetha.
