After the smash hit Thuppakki, all eyes are on Vijay – Vijay’s Thalaivaa. The trailers and the songs have already created groundwork for the movie’s release. Produced by Chandra Prakash Jain, C.P. Sunil and C.P. Dinesh and distributed by Vendhar Movies, Thalaivaa is one of the highly anticipated movies of the year, with Satyaraj, Amala Paul, Rajiv Pillai and Ragini Nandwani in the ensemble. Talking to the Behindwoods Correspondent, one of the film’s producers, Mr Sunil Jain gives ten solid reasons on why one shouldn’t miss this film.

  • Director Vijay knows what works for the audience – he has done emotional dramas to romance to action with equal ease and actor Vijay knows what his fans want. The combination is sure to hit the right chord.
  • Call the Nayagan charm or as you might like, Tamil films have a secret love affair for Bombay. Thalaivaa is partly set in Mumbai.
  • The film is set partly in Mumbai and the rest of the film is shot in international locations including Australia. The backdrops promise something unique.
  • We know Vijay has a penchant for punch dialogues but Director Vijay has done away with the need for that in the film. In effect, Vijay and his crisp eyes will do the talking.
  • The film boasts of very high production values – for instance, slums of Dharavi were recreated for the movie’s shooting
  • Vijay has sung the Vanganna Vanakkanganna song that was shot for 7 days with 500 junior artists. The title song of the movie features 120 junior artists.
  • According to the producers, the title Thalaivaa will stick to Vijay’s name even after the film’s release and they hope Thalaiva will even replace his Ilayathalapathy moniker.
  • Made on a multi crore budget, this is the biggest movie in Vijay’s career in terms of business.
  • Vijay plays the role of an expert dancer, a first in his career.
  • The quintessential comedian of all movies, Santhanam is present in Thalaivaa as well. But in this film, majority of his tracks is based in Australia. And hence expect a different firebrand comedy from him.
