Shankar’s silent victory
soared sky high when Shankar announced Endhiran
with Super Star Rajinikanth.
Shankar-Rajini Combination along with AR Rahman
and Aiswarya with the budget ranging from 165
to 200 crores and one doesn’t need to explain
the expectation level for this mega budget venture.
Once the expectation level goes high it would
be tough for any film maker to match the output
with audience’s expectation.
This was definitely one of the biggest tasks which
need to be addressed before its release. And Shankar
and Co made good efforts to have their firm control
over the expectation level by not leaking the

pictures but now when I sit in front of 70 mm screen what

title card will definitely have some words to thank late
But it will be so nice if they could display Sujatha’s
