"You can endlessly write books on Vijay.." - Taramani actor

Actor Azhagam Perumal, director of Dumm Dumm Dumm and an actor who hit home so hard in his roles as the Tamil teacher in Kattradhu Tamizh and the train station master in Taramani, spoke to us in an exclusive interview about a lot of things.

One of the most interesting things he had to say was his insight on Thalapathy Vijay. "You can endlessly write books about the man.. As to why he is such a phenomenal success. The three qualities of him that every fan of his can imbibe, are his hardworking tendency, devotion to cinema, and punctuality in...

''Vijay was very thrilled to work mainly because it had Ar Rahman's music''

Actor/director Azhagam Perumal talks about his experience directing Vijay in Udhaya.

"Vijay was very excited because he was going to work with Ar Rahman for the first time. That was his main attraction about the film. Secondly, he liked the idea that I told. When he was doing love stories, I wanted to change that image of his.

Today, Vijay's is in a different league, but when I made Udhaya, I was very clear to make him a full-fledged action hero. I tried to break all the conventional formulae that Vijay was following back then in Udhaya. He shouldn't dance, he...

Manirathnam to produce more films

He’s badly in need of rest and nothing is going to compensate with his health. The filmmaker had a very tough time while filming his trilingual film ‘Raavanan’ and that could have been the reason letting buzzes open that it was his associate directors Azhagam Perumal and S.S.

Review - Aayirathil Oruvan

Star-casts: Karthi, Andrea, Reema Sen, Parthiban, Prathap Pothan, Azhagam Perumal and others.

Banner: Dream Valley Entertainment

Production: R Ravendran

Direction: Selvaraghavan

Music: G.V. Prakash

For those who acclaimed Selvaraghavan as the most ace screenplay writer and filmmaker, you’ll have to confess your sins…. ‘Aayirathil Oruvan’ is a very big disappointment. Sorry to say! Producer Ravendran maybe in a troublesome situation now…. We kindly thank those comments which supported in favor of us. Yes, we have been correct with our presumptions and Selva hasn’t done anything special other than ‘adult factors, semi-nude shots and bad words….’

Aayirathil Oruvan’ is a fiction that brings about conflict between the present generations of Chola and Pandian dynasty.

The film opens with a renowned archeologist (Prathap Pothan) found in an isolated land bounded with a nightmarish experience. On the very next day, the newspapers carry news that he’s missing. His only beloved
