Vikram Prabhu's next venture, Neruppu Da is touted to
be one of the most expected movies in the actor's career after his
debut movie, Kumki. The title itself is a catch and
captivates the attention of audience as it's an extract from
Superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali movie's song.
The audio launch of the movie was held in Annai Illam, the
residence of Thespian star Sivaji Ganesan, who is also the
grandfather of Vikram Prabhu. The audio launch function was graced
by the media house, industry folks and a few of the dignitaries
which included Superstar Rajinikanth, Vivek, Satyaraj, Raghava
Lawrence, Vishal etc.
Every guest of the function spoke high on Nadigar Thilagam's
family and wished Vikram Prabhu not just to continue to make good
movies but also to carry forward the legacy of his mighty
grandfather, Sivaji Ganesan and his father, Prabhu Ganesan.
In addition to star's speeches concerning the movie unit, almost
all stars voiced out their opinion on movie reviews which has
become the latest trend in the social media.
Superstar Rajinikanth expressed that, movie making business is
what industry folks are required to do and reviewing a movie is the
wish of an individual. But the way of expressing views and
communicating information is what needs to be looked into, he
asserted. He also came back with an anecdote and a funny example
which conveyed what he intended to.
Thalaiva also had a piece of information for distributors. He
advised distributors to buy movies based on its content, market
value and evaluation and not going by what the producers say as the
latter publicize their movies to be sold at exorbitant costs.
Rajinikanth said it is absurd to see distributors flaunting
fancy numbers while buying a movie without much ground work and
come back asking for compensation once the movie tanks at the box
Satyaraj too, fired on online reviewers and requested them to
review and voice out their opinion on movies after a few days of
its release and not during its initial weekend. He added, it has
been a trend to speak negative about the movie than chalking out
the positives of the same as audience tend to believe go by the
words of such reviewer who pin points more negative aspects of the
Vivek voiced out his opinion in a very strong manner through his
humorous way. The comedy actor exclaimed that the tone and
modulation of online reviewers itself, send a negative vibe to the
viewers and that has all potential to break the movie prospects.
Raghava Lawrence spoke about the statements being doctored by the
He quoted a recent incident where Rajinikanth postponed his meet
with his fans for photographs as the legendary actor wanted to
organize the photo shoot in a finer manner which shouldn't be
causing inconvenience to his fans.
However, certain section of media reportedly published that the
Kabali Star does not wish to meet his fans. Lawrence also requested
the media to call a spade a spade and not send negative waves
across the audience.
Vishal too, expressed the same about the movie reviewers
claiming that hundreds of families are dependent on a movie's box
office prospects and should not be taken on a lighter note.
We wish online reviewers do not take cinema artistes for granted
and at the same time wish cinema artists to consider audience
seriously and continue to make quality movies.
