Actor turned politician Vijaykanth's next movie
Mariyadhai hit the floors amidst the galaxy of stars and
directors on the day of Vijayadasami.
Produced by T.Shiva, the producer of Saroja, under his
banner Amma Creations, the film is directed by Vikraman.
Vikraman's earlier film with Vijaykanth Vaanatha Pola
was a blockbuster which got released in the year 2000, Pongal day.
It created a new record in collection among Vijaykanth's films.
The director and his hero Vijaykanth hope a lot on this
sentiment and firmly believe that Mariyadhai will also get
the same response from the audience.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Vikraman said, "I strongly
believe that captain should have got the best actor National Award
for our earlier combination Vaanatha Pola. But it did not happen
just because of some political reasons, I think. But
Mariyadhai will get an award from the National committee
surely. Also I made Vaanatha Pola without action blocks. But in
Mariyadhai I have made up for it. He has dual roles as
father and son in this film..."
In this movie Vijaykanth have 3 heroines Meera Jasmine, Meena
and Ambika (the erstwhile dream girl).
Vijaykanth showed happiness at his reunion with Vikraman and
hopes that the title Mariyadhai will get its real meaning
in the box office too.
