Clash of the titans: Rajni vs Kamal at the box-office!!
It is the biggest battle that the tinsel town in the south can think about. Forget about all those petty rivalries, Vijay vs. Ajith or Dhanush vs. Simbu for instance. All those look to be too trivial to be called battles in the face of this one. Maybe such a celebrated clash has never been seen in Indian cinema. It is the face off between the highest paid actor in the country and arguably the moist versatile actor in the country. In Tamil Nadu we call it the clash between the Mass and the Class. It is the clash between Rajni and Kamal. .
When one says ‘clash’, don’t picture a scene of the two men having a go at each other through the media, like some of the smaller stars tend to do. We may have never seen a more dignified rivalry. The two men show so much respect for each other; after all they have worked together in so many movies.
When a movie starring any one of them releases at the box office, it is a time to rejoice for the entire industry and all movie lovers. What if, each one of them releases a movie simultaneously; needless to say, it is the biggest festival the industry can witness. The two biggest draws at the box office doing business at the same time. Sometimes this is seen as a somewhat bad idea. It is because the simultaneous release will surely cause minimal losses to both the movies. So it is best to release them separately. But the excitement generated due to a simultaneous release can never be created by anything else.
There were times when such a clash used to be regularity. Almost every festival season. Then it became rare as Rajni brought down the number of movies he acted in. Then in 2005, it happened again, Chandramukhi and Mumbai Express met at the box office. One must say that it was quite a disappointment. It was a no contest. Mumbai Express was a dud and Chandramukhi was the runaway winner.

Now, it is all set to happen again in 2007. With superstar’s Sivaji and universal hero’s Dasavatharam set to release for Tamil New year.
This time one can be sure of a great contest. Not only between the big stars. It is also a clash of the two top directors in Kollywood, Shankar and K.S.Ravikumar and also between two of the biggest production houses, A.V.M and Oscar films. It is a three-pronged contest. But there is one thing unique to this contest. There need not be just one winner; both the sides can win if the movies live up to the expectations. That is what the industry and all Tamil movie lovers want.
