Suriya, who enjoys a huge fan following in Kerala, was given a rousing reception. The twin pillars of Malayalam cinema Mohanlal and Mammootty joined him on stage and thanked him for being part of the star-studded event.
Despite Thaana Serndha Kootam’s mixed reviews, Suriya’s film had a good stint at the box office. Pleased by the response and the love the film has fetched him, the actor has gifted a Toyota car to director Vignesh Shivn as a token of affection.
Cinematographer KV Anand made his debut as a director in 2005 with family drama Kana Kandaen. Anand’s previous outing was Kavan, which had Vijay Sethupathi and T.Rajendar in the lead roles. The film was well received at the box office.
Sridevi Chennai prayer meet: Two pillars of Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan were not able to attend this prayer meet due to their other commitments. Kamal was on a two-day tour in Erode district, while Rajinikanth is on a pilgrimage to the Himalayas.
NGK first look: The poster shows a wall covered in graffiti of Suriya, who is styled seemingly taking inspiration from prominent communist figure Che Guevara.
Vignesh Shivan lost his trademark cool after he was ticked off by a tweet from an industry tracker, who suggested his latest film Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, starring Suriya in the lead role, was a flop at the box office.
Maari 2 is the sequel to Dhanush’s 2015 gangster drama, which was also directed by Balaji. Suriya’s maiden collaboration with Selvaraghavan is tentatively titled Suriya 36.
Suriya had jokes about his height in his latest film Thaana Serndha Kootam. In a much-quoted line from the movie, he says “Namma evlo uyaram endrathu mukiyam illa, evlo uyararom enbathu than mukiyam.”
There has been outrage after two VJs made distasteful remarks about Suriya’s height on their show. While the flak is warranted, we wonder why a conversation of similar intensity wasn’t sparked when women were body shamed on and off-screen.
Apart from Suriya’s Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, two other films have released on Friday. But it looks like TSK is leading the box office race.
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam movie review: Walk in without expectation and let the Suriya and Keerthy Suresh starrer’s humour entertain you. As hard as the film tries to be serious, it is tough to take it so
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is easily one of the most-awaited films of 2018. It is the maiden venture of Vignesh with actor Suriya. It is based on the opera house heist that took place in 1987.
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is being touted as a perfect festival release — a commercial entertainer. Suriya, however, reasoned that it is necessary to have a balance between commercial potboilers and experimental ventures.
After Sai Pallavi, Theeran Adhigaram Ondru star Rakul Preet has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Suriya’s 36th movie with Selvaraghavan. The film is bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures.
The leading man Suriya revealed that there will no smoking/drinking disclaimer before the film as it isn’t necessary. He also congratulated Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Vishal on their political journeys.
