Rajini Avatars as JAGGUBHAI

I was surprised when my friend called me this early morning and asked me if I was looking at the newspaper. Not the English dailies he said but the Tamil ones. He dropped the happy bomb too. See it, a surprise awaits you.

I knew it was coming. There were talks all over the last week about it. It was said to be on 4th. I was awaiting it but I never knew it could be one day before. It rained all over yesterday and today morning. So I biked against the drizzles to the newspaper mart only to find that Rajini has announced his new film Jaggubhai. Ravikumar had announced last week that he would be directing Rajini’s next flick and so he does. But AR Rahman back on the tunes and Jeeva on the angles have certainly impressed me to the core. I am sure Jeeva can pitch in a lot with his experience.

This move of Rajini announcing his new movie Jaggubhai is certainly very dramatic. For a complete Rajini Fan like me, it is refreshing news. But when I look at with an outsider view, it is dramatic in all the angles. Especially during this moment when Rajini’s integrity gets beaten up by the media and the political arena, this move of Rajini balances him as level-headed. Still it is very dramatic pre-dominantly because Tamil Nadu is set to vote in just one week and the opinion polls suggest DMK / Congress sweeping across the state.

Having been an all-time fan of Rajnikanth films, I was definitely not convinced by his off late call for democratic opposition against the PMK. Rajini who was expected to be refreshing change in the political arena shouldn’t be seen as someone who is involving his fans for a personal benefit. Though I am sure it wasn’t his intention, it was projected by the media and he was forced to do it.

On the promos Rajini poses like a muslim/hindu with a gun beside him sitting in an odd pose. This oddness isn’t new for Rajini. When I saw the first ad of Basha on the same paper, I felt it. The name was very odd. Continuing the same oddity of name was Padayappa. I was thinking that Basha would fail miserable for the name itself. But both Padayappa and Basha proved in the Box-Office as the most successsful movies.

For the hunger stricken media, this odd costume and the pose, inclusive of the name will be a dream come true news. In the next few weeks, Jaggubhai will occupy the first pages and screens of most of the media. Jaggubhai’s news will be bitten, chewed and eaten by the every available media till they over expose the film and it’s cast. I only hope Rajini plays safe this time with the media and makes sure he feeds them well, else the hype would be blown enough that the bubble bursts soon after it’s created.

Check out the Daily Thanthi Ad of JagguBhai.

  1. Hah,KG good observation..only good thing is Rahman’s music..let’s see,what he is going to do?,Rahman offlate is facing serious problems,after messing up CBSO symphony,his Broadway edition of ‘Bombay Dreams’ gets thrashed by critics as a tasteless show.Hoping the man to recover,to bounce back and give us something great..expecting his ‘Lord of the Rings’,and this one(Jagubhai) too gives some hope.

  2. hey…i agree…when i first saw the title ‘rajini avatars..’ and the pic i really thought someone did a photoshop on osama bin laden with a rajini photo!

    it kinda puts me off…the name and the pic that is…considering i just started the day watching annamalai…ARR back on the tunes doesnt convince me as much since i would prefer a srikanth deva kind of tune for a rajini movie not anything peppy like a yuvan’s or a symphony orchestrated piece from ARR (not matter how good it is i am sure ravikumar’s going for a mass entertainer not an art film award)

    well thats my piece…if its jaggubhai then all the best for it to be a padayappa 2 or whatever ravikumar and rajini have in mind.

  3. What ever happened to Ayya?
    And trisha and all that?

    And in the pic, he doesnt look like himself at all.
    Strange are the ways of Rajni?

  4. Rahman knows his customer very well,so he will deliver the stuff accordingly…something like an upbeat song sung by S.P.B for Rajini’s intro.I definetely think that its a Photoshop work,Rajini would have just decided that appearance and his ad ppl would have made that poster i think,Do you think its original?..as Ravages say it doesn’t look like him at all.

  5. Ravages..
    Ayya (at least the name) was dropped mainly cos Dr.Ayya is what the PMK cadres supposedly call Dr.Krishnaswamy..

    And…I just hope Thalaiver does not incl. any of his own personal philosphies like he did in Baba…
    As for ARR, he has given us a couple of awesome signatures for ARR e.g. Oruvan Oruvan from Muthu. Regardless of Baba, I am sure this venture will add to the Rajini aura.

  6. Ajay, How about if I say its about a Hindu guy called Jaggu whos been adopted by a Muslim family! Well.. its just a guess and if its the whole story, you know who you heard it first from!

  7. today’s hindu daily remarks it as a story of a terrorist called jaggu who gets smoothened in life by a maharastrian spiritual lady called Shantha Chakkubhai.

    if this is the story outline, something doesn’t sound well. but heck we also shouldn’t be making guesses about the story. let’s give ravikumar a chance to think unlike what they did to suresh krishna in Baba.

  8. aNTi, the cap he wears looks like the one worn by some north Indian Hindus(guess Marathi’s).
    Muslims wear round kinda caps, whereas this looks more like the old-congress cap.

  9. If the story is as mentioned in The Hindu,..it appears as glorifying Hindutva.Why not make a movie like Muthu,Padaiyappa to satisfy his fans rather than indulging in such Religious topics.Already Baba was pathetic with its tepid storyline..let’s c.

  10. True, Baba wasn’t a good story, neither was muthu or arunachalam.

    padayappa relatively had a good story-line and screenplay. i only hope rajini delivers something new.

  11. hey all…
    this movie “jaggubhai” is going to thrash out all the collections set as of now.
    so all rajni fans look out for our thalaivars “jaggubhai”

  12. Hey at last there comes RAJNI movie. For a rajni fan like me it is like a festival day. Thalaivar pic is very odd and very much daring. However rajni should keep BABA in mind and work out the film. We can trust Ravikumar for a good story. AR.Rehman should do well to level himself. The film should satisfy every people. Im very much refreshed by seeing in pic of JAGGUBHAI. Lets wait and see him.

  13. This film will be Definitely a big…. hit.but dont want to be released on deewali.on next MAY
    1st.for i want to see it on 1st day.because on deewali i must burst crackers.on may it will be a summer holiday.so please accept my request.
    also please act films once in a year.i am one of
    your crore’s fan.iam an 8th standard student.
    ALL THE BEST.

  14. i feel this film would be a blockbuster one…arrahman will give a good one as he did in roja and bombay coz this subject seems to look like very much related to it.ksravikumar has already had a good combination with rajni, so no worries.

  15. this movie is going to get back the lost fame of our superstar and all the dogs barking at him are going to put their fingers across their mouth.

    jaggubhai hit hit hit….. no exceptions…

  16. hey rajini sir i think this movie is a good movie because baba was not realy good but i love all your movie(padayapa is my favorit)you are the best star on the tamil cinema i think your new movie JAGGUBHAI is good, i am waiting for the july 4th.
    good luck rajini sir.

  20. Hi!

    Fisrt of all it is my previledge to thank ALLAH for giving all the individuals an opportunity to give comments. Next i pray to ALLAH that in this movie Rajnikanth Uncle gets a super bumper mega hit. My wishes & regards are always there for this wonderful gentleman. Next i would like to request K.S. Ravikumar to give a super story line for RAJNI UNCLE. PLEASE ADD PUNCH LINES AS THEY HAD BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST MOVIES LIKE BASHA. Remember to make this movie a far better of, than any latest release & even better than Mudalvan. I hope and pray that no politics or religious problems are going to effect this movie by any chance. So director Ravikumar it is a personal request to u. Rajni uncle please don`t add any unwanted stuff which will make the movie bore like as u did in BABA. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH now u should do a movie like BASHA & U WILL DO IT.

    Wishing u & the director & the whole team a very good luck.

    Love ,
    Asrar

  24. Hi all,
    Eventhough i am replying late on this forum… like our thalaivar “Lateaa Vandhalum Latestaa Varuvaen”.

    I was also stunned & felt so happy when i saw the ad in the newspaper that morning. i was so happy that i all most felt like it was my birthday.

    For all those stupid fans of other actors & who are all crying to be the next SuperStar, they r going to shut their mouths after this movie smashes all the hits.

    As of now i am praying for this movie to come up atleast twice as good as Padayappa was. All I want is our thalaivar to be Happy once again.

    Rajni Forever.. Love u Sir!!

  26. sir,
    i am a great fan*fan* of you and iam realy mad about you and you make me sad by not acting films
    i waz the most happiest person to know when you said that u are releasing jaggubai i wan u to act still many more thank you

  27. It is high time rajini leaves kollywood…Look at Amithab..old yet going strong. His movies are so different and he looks very charming. All his roles are heroic but he does not run around trees and dance with his heroines. C’mon when is rajini going to learn from him.

    Even his fans would have agreed wat kind of Flop movie is BABA. Rajini do not need to fight with Vikram, vijay or surya do be in Number 1 spot. Do good roles like kamal and amithab.’

  28. Whoever said rajini is a tamilian….please wake up pple. He is not a tamilian, he is hero boz everyone in TN supports him. Tat is boz of his generosity and of his charity mindedness. Rajini is not a good actor. All his roles are stereotyped. Acting is a skill not a personality or character. DO not mix them both.

  29. SUPER THALAIVA ENIKUME NITHAN SUPERSTAR
    UNEH MINJE EVUNUN ILEH YENAH NITHAN SUPER ACHE AH
    DONT THINK WHAT OTHERS SAID AS WE SAID THE DOG WILL ALWAYS BARK WITHOUT REASON TAKE IT LIKE THAT CONTINUE YOUR SUPER LIFE STYLE GIVE YOUR SPECIALITY TO EVERYONE…..ALL ARE WAITING FOR YOU…….JAKKUBHAIIIII

  30. Thaliva you is the only super star other cannot did.Super acters are many but you is only king of style no cannot do itand people cannot accept other style.

  31. rajini is very indecisive, afraid too
    he is already planned to make BABA as his last movie, he even mentioned it indirectly thru the title song and the climax that his next place is politics or retirement
    but he want to make sure baba to be superhit to save his superstar status in history
    however, unexpectedly, the movie crash, even the samiyar who blessed rajini and tell the date of release died of heart attack after seein baba; so, now he is very very confused and afraid to make next movie, but he will surely will make a movie but maybe in 3 years time,,, that would be either in 2005 or 2006,, till then, just dont bother to wait,,, fed up to wait – LATEST IRUNDTHALUM,, ROMBA LATE TAH IRUKUDEH! APPO, EPADI LATESTA IRUKKUM?

  32. hai,
    my hero u’re always my hero in my heart…
    please hero pls succesfull in your nextmovie jaakubhai for keep it up your superstar….
    baba is the best movie for me, dunno for other…
    pls come up like baasha it’s very suitable and expected for ur style and your acting….
    i will waiting for ur next movie…..bye bye talaivaaa.
