A perfect platform is ready to showcase the star power of two Tamil stalwarts - Vijay and Ajith Kumar. Come Pongal, Kollywood cine-goers will witness rarest of rare battle at Box Office with Jilla and Veeram releasing on January 10.
Both the movies are special for respective actors but for Ajith Kumar it is slightly different, as he is returning to rural-based movie after doing a series of urban-centric films. Indeed, the actor is trying to have a image make over by doing a tried-and-tested formulaic commercial film.
Change In Subject Crucial
Industry insiders believe that change in subjects is crucial for the growth of an actor's career for the fear of becoming typecast. Veeram for Ajith comes at an important phase where the actor has to choose a movie that has to satisfy his inner actor as well as his fans with keeping commercial interests in mind.
Ajith Kumar's recent movies like Mankatha, Billa 2 and Arrambam showed the actor in city-based roles wearing stylish costumes. The movies banked on action quotient. But the latest film Veeram is completely different from his last few films. In the flick, fans will get to see the Vaali actor in a vesthi-clad do gooder.

Salt-And-Pepper Blends With Veshti
The interesting part of the story is that Ajith Kumar has retained his successful salt-and-pepper look and blending it with traditional costumes in Veeram. This has turned out to be a trend-setting avatar among rural audience.
Ajith Kumar was seen in the roles that had negative shades. Veeram comes as a welcome change, as the actor will be reportedly seen in good Samaritan role. It takes back to us to the hero-centric movies that were ruling the Box Office in 80-90s.
Punch dialogues have always been the main element in A-list actors films. But in some of Ajith's recent movies, people hardly found powerful one-liners, as the actor was not keen on forcefully adding it in the script. But for Veeram, he has okayed it because his fans love to see him mouthing punch dialogues.
Gun's Won't Speak
Actions in Veeram will stand different simply because guns won't speak in this film like Ajith's recent movies. The actor will be part of completely rural-backdropped action sequences.
Adding to that there was little room for sentiment and family drama in Ajith's last few movies. But the core subject of Veeram revolves around four brothers and sentiment scenes play crucial role in the story's progress.
All in all, Ajith is ready to redefine his career once again by opting for a change. His fans just hope that Veeram will be as big as Attagasam, a rural-based blockbuster film of the Thala.
