Will it be a fresh Vijay, after the break?

Guys.. this is not an anti-Vijay post... So, pl. read it from that perspective :-) :-)

Finally, the hot star of 2005 has taken a break..

A Well deserved one, from his & his family's point of view. May be, for his fans this may be a surprising news since he was continuously feeding them with movies in the last 1 year plus. From my point of view, I already felt that the numbers which he did was too much.

5 movies in a gap of 15 months..with a super hero status. Seems to be incredible.

However, considering his previous years runs, I would expect him to be cautious in future. He might have thought to reap the benefits when the wind blows on his side. He might have decided to churn out so many commercial movies continuously, due to intense competition for the top slots. Inspite of those numbers, he was able to give two super hits, one confirmed average, another seeming to be an average and the left alone survived due to his cameo role.

Need to agree that he has worked hard, to gain the current stardom which he is holding. At his age of 30 plus, his urge to give more hits are understandable. 5 songs (with one Item number) + 4 fights + some 'Ennanganna...' dialogues, may do that trick for sometime. I believe the fans like that part of Vijay very much. Will it continue?

I feel that he needs to change his strategy now. We don't want Satyaraj style of movies from Vijay. He can possibly reduce the numbers per year, which may raise expectations among the audience. The industry's bet on his movies are very high at Rs.20 crores plus level. So, if some of the movies flop, it would affect his subsequent movies trade.

A decade back, when Gautami did 12 movies in a year or when Rama Narayanan directed 12 movies in a year [real fact, folks...] people accepted them. However, nowadays people are observing so much of cine-data disseminated thru media. So, they really keep track of the performance. Probably, after sometime, the result may be felt - in terms of their acceptance of his movies.

Let us check out the list of the movies which he churned out in the last few years..

Aathi / Sivakasi / Sachein / Sukran
Thirupaachi / Madurae / Ghillie / Udhaya
Thirumalai / Pudhiya Geethai / Vaseegara / Bhagavathi
Youth / Thamizhan / Shaajahan / Badri

Honestly speaking, I have seen only 'Vaseegara' (accidentally), 'Sachein' (expectations were high due to John Mahendra direction) & and the real super-hit Dharani's 'Ghillie'.


May be, I could sense what his film contents were... due to which I am trying to avoid. I accept that he is not doing movies for audience like me. But, soon more may turn out to be like me.

Now much awaited, SJ.Suryah's 'Puli' has also been dropped. So, a chance of getting another refreshing (!!) movie has been scrapped. At the same time, you could have observed these rumours that Gautam Menon may direct Vijay & Vikram together. If it works out, it may be a different movie. But, it is unlikely to happen immediately since Gautam has to finish Kamal's 'V..V..'. first.

Prior to that, Vijay may accept another masala movie with a young new chap, who may have ready scripts to suit his star status of today. In that case, I feel those scripts would be most likely in the same line as the last few predictable action movies of him.

Let's hope his upcoming movies this year and following years keep him as one among the top heroes. He needs to consolidate his top slot with some better movies to name and not in numbers.

Normally, Vijay tries different combination of heroines & directors for most of his movies. This time, I hope he would add some "interesting story content" also as a variable to that equation...

It does seem a far off catch for Vijay to come up with some different storyline and performances. While going over the list of Vijay films you mentioned, it comes to my mind how much Vijay is trying to imitate Rajni in his style, but again there can be one and only Thalaivar. The reason behind Thalaivar attaining this level at his age is bcos he did a variety of characters in his younger days movies starting with Abborva Ragangal, 16 Vayathinile, Moondru Mugam, Bairavi etc etc.

These days where do heroes like Vijay ever dare to think of doing such negative or variety roles and still remain super heroes.

I think Vijay is a very good natural actor. Loved him in Sachein. Pity he choses masala movies to act in.

Im a great Vijay fan, i think he has done so many movies in last 3 years, being compared with Rajnikant, i think this is too much, plus with same stories movie after movie i think he needs to have a gap between two movies..

IMHO, Vijay is insecure about his place and low on confidence when it comes to do meaty roles. Thus he chooses the safest way of doing masala films. Let us see what he does after a string of flops starting with Aathi.

Hey there,

I personally feel that Vijay does roles which caters to the large non-urban Tamil speaking audience. I guess there still are large numbers which want to see Vijay do exactly what he does, and therefore, the string of masala movies. In any case, he's made a career of these movies. However, it'll be interesting to see what he does with his fame going forward.

PS: Am a Vijay fan myself, if not for anything, for those mind-blowing dances and amazing stunt-filled fight sequences.

hi Well.. talking about vijay's movies. i think he is the next legend to the Superstar ( both winning commercially and the audience's hearts). he mostly takes on masala subjects which suits him the best. The reason for him not doing experimental subjects is that he may not be comfortable in acting in such roles. for instance, Would people want to see Vijay in anniyan kind of roles or pithamagan roles? Obviously not. Hence Vijay is doing gr8 in his style of movies. In his younger days he used to be a lover boy character. Now he has reached a superstar level.To maintain that he has to do wat he feels the best. Therefore, accept vijay in his heroism subject movies...and he will NVR disappoint u peeps!! Cheers!!
