“Pokkiri is different from my recent films”, says Vijay
January 11, 2007
The recent films of Ilaya Thalapathy have almost been of the same action genre. Stunt and fights were the core theme of films like Sivakasi, Adi and Thirupachi. Amidst such films, his Sachin was a soft romantic film. But this was not well accepted by his fans and he once again reverted to action movies. But his Pongal release Pokkiri is said to have romantic elements along with action in it.
There is a specific lift scene which is reported to be shot for a longer duration with Vijay and Asin. This scene would have all the ingredients of soft romance and light hearted comedy in it. Vijay in an interview had mentioned that this sequence is sure to be the highlight of the movie. On anti hero and different subjects, he does not mind trying them as he had already tried a similar one in “Kannukkul Nilavu”. But the film was not much welcomed among his fans. Hence he has decided to work in films which are liked by his fans, favorable to his producers and distributors. Good strategy indeed!
