Kollywood Godfather

This post isn’t about the multitude of films that borrowed story ideas from the Hollywood classic Godfather. With the protests over english names for tamil movies still gearing up, I was suprised this morning to a see an film ad on tamil dailies that read, God father. A middle aged man with a thick white moustache and spectacles posed for the ad. He looked similar to our Ajith. Adjusting my eyes, I looked it up once more. It’s Ajith Kumar himself.

There was more to come. The film produced by NIC Arts is being directed by K S Ravikumar. The previous time Ajith and KSR combo worked out in Villain. Note the english name again. Ask for the technical crew and here you go with more. A R Rahman on the keys and PC Sreeram with the camera.

What more should we do but hope that KSR doesn’t re-use Jaggubhai‘s story here. But jokes apart, it is a dream combo especially with PC Sreeram joining the crew. Probably this was what Ajith mentioned in his Attakasam trailer as, Ezhundutaen, Tho Varen.
