Here’s a strong contender for Vijay’s Pokkiri!!
The promos for Pokkiri show a fun film with Vijay back in his elements at what he does best – total entertainment. Asin is his foil. Prabhudeva makes his debut as director in Tamil with Pokkiri.
While Vijay is seeking to reestablish his standing as a bankable star and Prabhudeva is out to prove on his home turf, there is some interesting competition brewing in the backyard.
Raghavendra Lawrence, who was an associate under Prabudeva, soon became a much sought after choreographer and director in Telugu. He has worked with all the top stars there.
He did try to become hero in Tamil, but failed. Undeterred, he tried his hand at direction and his first film, Mass with Nagarjuna was a big hit.
His next film, Style, with himself and Prabhudeva has been one of the super hits of this year, a highlight being the presence of Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi in the climax. That speaks volumes about the affection he commands in the industry there.Now, Lawrence is also on the home beat with the launch of his Tamil film, Muni for director Saran’s Gemini Productions.
An extremely choosy Rajkiran, who enthralled with his performance in Thavamai Thavamirundhu, plays a weighty character once again. With him as the hero, one can expect either raw energy or subdued melodrama.
Let us hope, Lawrence is able to draw out another stellar act from him.The talk on everybody’s lips right now is – will it be Pokkiri or Muni? We just cannot say, right now.
But watch this space as we bring you sneak peek into both.
Verdict: Bullshit Article No.1 😀
