Happy Dussehra folks; and it's a special Dussehra for all Ilayathalapathy Vijay fans as they are celebrating the completion of a year, since the release of one of the biggest blockbusters of 2014, Kaththi.
Last year, this very day (Oct 22nd) Kaththi swooped into many theatres worldwide, after which it did not take long to sweep many movie lovers off their feet, which showed through the box office collections of the movie.
But beyond mere box office collections, Kaththi had a greater purpose to serve. The purpose, was to make everyone understand the never ending plight of our farmers through the trained eyes of AR Murugadoss.
In 2014 alone, the National Crime Records Bureau of India reported 5,650 farmer suicides. The real success of a movie like Kaththi would materialize only when each and every Indian farmer is made to realize that he or she has to go on no matter what.
Even after showcasing some brutal facts, the reality remains that we all saw the film through rose-colored glasses, for the fact houses far more blood and pain and it's getting worse every minute.
Yes we clapped, whistled and enjoyed every bit of the movie. But isn't it unfair to just squeeze out the entertainment value from a film like Kaththi when it had much more to offer? What's your contribution towards the real success of this particular Vijay starrer?
