Sivaji: The Boss had released to packed houses across the country on June 15, 2007. The film revolves around a successful computer wizard Sivaji and how he uses his hard-earned money to provide good education and free medical treatment to poor people. However, his work is derailed by a wicked businessman Adiseshan, and Sivaji goes bankrupt. He is left with just one rupee in his pocket, which he uses as seed capital to gain back everything he has lost.
The grandness of composer AR Rahman’s songs was matched by equally grand picturization, thanks to art director Thota Tharani and cinematographer K. V. Anand. Shankar’s successful attempt to make Rajinikanth look 30 years younger had fans going gaga over the film. Coupled with interesting action set pieces and Shankar’s on-the-nose message about corruption clicked big time with the audience. Needless to say, the film set the box office on fire at the time.
