Isn’t it too early?

Isn’t it too early to compare Vishnuvardhan with Manirathnam?

Eventhough most of the websites claim his ‘Arinthum Ariyaamalum’ as his debut movie, his original debut ‘Kurumbu’ can easily be ignored. Being a remake of a telugu movie of its hero Naresh, it had so much of Andhra shade. Luckily, Vishnu changed his track in ‘A..A..’ and presented a different relationship between Prakash Raj & Arya and showed that we could expect something out of him in the next movie. Now, he has proved that he can present a hit in the form of ‘Pattiyal’ realistically with a known story plot.

Kudos to the boy, who is being compared with Mani, the person who made him to dance in ‘Anjali’ for few songs.

I would say that Mani’s earlier movies were also not outstanding movies, eventhough they were different from the normal movies of those days. Take for example, ‘Pagal Nilavu’. I remember Satyaraj quoting to another actor, ‘Whether this director knows how to survive in the industry?’ during the shooting of the movie. But Mani proved with his subsequent movies, that he was there to stay for a long period.

But still, I feel that it is too early to compare Vishnu with Mani.

However, it is a healthier sign for the industry, if I refer to my earlier post again. Let us hope more, to get interesting outputs from this guy.

When I saw Pattiyal, I really get inspired in the way the characters are created and the cast selection for that particular characters. As you said, it's too early to compare him to Maniratnam, But hope these comaprison will make him to shine and care more in his next movie.

We can praise him for the picturisation of songs also.
Today it is the hot topic whether he is next maniratnam..good to hear that somebody is there to compare with Maniratnam, where SJSuryah type of directors are mainly concentrating vulgarity things..

Kudos Vishnu....

YOu know what? Vishnu worked with me in my team in a madras based production house. I was the director and he, my assistant on a game show..was good fun! i was 21 and he was 20! Now i wont say the cliche` " i knew he was the best " kinda thing, but it was good fun working with him

KM.. thanks for dropping by. Definitely, SJS type of guys cannot be compared with Mani. Vishnu has the potential. Let him exploit it, in the coming movies also.

Kamban.. Good to observe people (who have worked with us), going up the ladder. Sometimes, I do get a feeling when I come to know about someone on the top ladder of a well known orgnstn.

PK.. had a chance to watch Pattiyal. OK, but not great. Didn't have time to blog on it. Thanks for a lookup into my blog for a review.
