Karthi was seen in a double – role in
Siruthai which means his adoring public got
twice as much of him and they were not complaining.
Directed by Siva, the film also had Tamannah
flaunting her enviable curves and Santhanam
in a comedy routine with the hero that had
the audience rolling in the aisles with laughter.
An out and out unpretentious entertainer,
Siruthai rode to victory on the able shoulders
of its charismatic leading man and established
him as a force to be reckoned with in the
Trade talk: Siruthai took
a head start in the collections race and went
on to become a commercial success story.
Public opinion: Karthi established
that he is a mass hero who can also act with
the best of them. The public respond to him
in a manner that is reminiscent of the hysteria
generated by Rajinikanth in his early days.
