    மங்காத்தா படத்திற்கு வந்த முதல் நாள் கூட்டம், ஒட்டுமொத்த தமிழகத்தையும் பிரமிக்க வைத்திருக்கிறது. ரஜினி படங்களுக்கு வருகிற அதே கூட்டம் அஜீத் படத்திற்கும் வந்தது. இதையடுத்து அடுத்த சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் நாற்காலி யாருக்கு என்ற கேள்வியும், அது குறித்த விமர்சனங்களும் எழ ஆரம்பித்திருக்கிறது கோடம்பாக்கத்தில்.

    அஜீத் பட வெற்றியை அவரேதான் முறியடிக்க வேண்டும் என்பது போல இதுவரை இல்லாத அளவுக்கு இந்த படத்தின் தமிழ்நாடு வெளியீட்டு உரிமை விற்கப்பட்டுள்ளதாம். இதன் மதிப்பு மொத்தம் 18 கோடியே 95 லட்சம் என்கிறார்கள் கோடம்பாக்கத்தில்.

    பந்தின் வடக்கு பக்கம் காற்றடித்தால் தெற்கு பக்கமும் வீங்கும் என்பது போல, இந்த படத்தின் விலையை கருத்தில் கொண்டு டிக்கெட் விலையை பன் மடங்கு உயர்த்தி விற்க சொல்கிறார்களாம் விநியோகஸ்தர்கள். இதற்கு அநேக தியேட்டர்கள் சம்மதித்தாலும், சென்னையில் இயங்கி வரும் கார்ப்பரேட் தியேட்டர்கள் மட்டும் கைகட்டி வாய் பொத்தி நிற்கிறதாம். அரசு நிர்ணயித்த விலையை தாண்டி விற்க முடியாது என்று இவர்கள் கூறி வருவதால் செய்வதறியாது திகைக்கிறார்களாம் விநியோகஸ்தர்கள்.

    இது ஒருபுறம் இருக்க, படம் ஹிட் என்றால் திருப்பதியில் மொட்டை என்று வேண்டியிருந்த டைரக்டர் வெங்கட்பிரபு தனது பிரார்த்தனையை நிறைவேற்றிவிட்டு வந்திருக்கிறார். தயாரிப்பாளர்களுக்கு மொட்டை போட்டே பழகிய சில இயக்குனர்கள் வெங்கட் பிரபுவை பார்த்தாவது மாறுவார்களா?

    Ajit Kumar’s latest film ‘Mankatha’ with Trisha pairing up in the female lead was released recently in Tamil Nadu and got record openings, which are higher than Tamil Super Star Rajanikanth’s film ‘Enthiran’.

    This is the 50th film in Ajit’s career and hence it evoked lots of craze among the audiences in general and his fans in particular. Almost all the websites, film magazines and other presented rave reviews for the movie.

    Bellamkonda Suresh bagged the dubbing rights of the film for Telugu and the dubbing works are in brisk progress. The producer announced the title of the Telugu version as ‘Gambler’.

    Nagarjuna was supposed to play a cameo in the film but he was replaced by Arjun due to dates problem, while Vaibhav played another key role in the movie.

    The film was directed by Venkat Prabhu and Yuvan Shankar Raja scored the music.

    Just watched Mankatha at Woodlands, Chennai.

    + Awesome opening fight scene !
    + There is a twist in the climax !
    + Premji’s comedy is awesome !
    + New style of songs picturisation with graphics !
    + Clever fast-paced screenplay (remember, Venkat Prabu has not given a flop so far like Shankar)

    Will become the biggest grosser in Thalai’s career beating Billa record !

    My estimate for Mankatha – Rs.70 crore (lifetime)

    Biggest release of the year thus far; Sun Pictures; Thala 50; Ajith in a full fledged bad-man character; Action King; Yuvan’s music – things don’t get bigger. It looks like a juggernaut at the moment.

    Trade Talk:
    You know about Ajith’s openings. And, if the response is anything to go by, this one is in for a long run.

    Public Talk:

    Verdict: Grand Opening

  38. says

    If all the actors watch the movie “Mankatha”, they will give a open statement that they can not come equal to Thala in acting. Only Ajith can occupy the place of Rajini after him. So no doubt in announcing next Super Star is Thala. Thala is always Thala than.

    MULTISTARRERS, AAMIR KHAN AND MANKATHA….

    That Mankatha has won the appreciation of the crowds is now beyond dispute. Of course, there are varied degrees to which people have liked the movie; hardcore Ajith fans are absolutely over the moon with excitement, general entertainment lovers too are happy with the fare served, but the best part is that even the hard-nosed, logic craving ‘Hollywoodophiles’ are finding Mankatha acceptable. The last category of audiences are the ones who always ask questions of Tamil movies (mostly concerning logic and reason) which are conveniently forgotten while watching

    Ajith

    Hollywood flicks (even if it shows one man suspending 50 odd missiles in mid-air by virtue of his magnetic powers). But, that is a separate debate.

    But, Mankatha has once again opened up the debate of multi-starrers. Truth to be said, there is nothing more worthy of celebration in cinema than a well made multi-starrer (with two or more big stars). It is like having two scoops of different flavor ice creams on your plate; it’s great. Yet, Tami cinema has always been in denial mode about the power of a multi-starrer. There have been few attempts, here and there, but it has never really got consistent. Of course, everyone understands date issues and budget concerns. But, going by interviews given by some of the leading directors of our times, things suggests that dates and budgets are not the main reasons behind the dearth of multi-starrers.

    One can recall an interview given by Samudirakani (director of Naadodigal) where he said that he had approached a couple of leading heroes with the script. He got frustrated and decided to make it with relatively smaller names because the heroes whom he approached had wanted all the space to themselves; they simply weren’t willing to share the high points of the script with the other characters, they merely had to be sidekicks. But, otherwise, they were impressed with the script! That is the reason many multistarrers failed to take off in Kollywood.

    Only rare directors like Bala and Mani Ratnam have been able to cajole stars into taking up multi-starrers without feeling the insecurity of being outshone by their counterparts. In a way, Mankatha shows that an actor willing to share screen space does not look inferior. Ajith, (even though it was his fiftieth film and he has built a career mostly on mass oriented heroic performances) took the brave option of giving enough space to all characters on screen, even letting a character played by Premji outsmart him (even though it was only for a while) and allowing the character played by Vaibhav to slap him; unthinkable in Tamil cinema’s orthodox ways; and most importantly, allowing Arjun to play the most well concealed character of the film. The results are there to be seen; no one is saying that Ajith undersold his star value; they are only full of praise for him.

    Someone who has mastered the art of sharing screen space is Aamir Khan; most stars can learn from him. Look at the number of blockbusters this man has delivered through multi-starrers. In act, over the last decade he has done more multi-starrers than solo films. Take for example, a Dil Chahta Hai (which sprung a whole new breed of coming of age films in Indian cinema, the latest of which is Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara); he shared the screen and allowed a considerable amount of scope to be given to Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna (who at that time were considerably smaller stars than him). Then there was Rang De Basanti where he allowed a rookie like Siddharth to do the most powerful scene of the movie while he stood in the background. And, Three Idiots (yes, it did give a lion’s share of all the good things to Aamir) is also a good example. There is no other top star in Indian cinema who has understood the art of screen sharing quite like Aamir Khan and used it to perfection time and time again. Let’s hope more stars take a leaf out of his book.

  44. says

    Ajith’s 50th golden jubilee film Mankatha has broken many myths. The Venkat Prabhu directed entertainer has taken an earth shaking opening worldwide.

    Mankatha is said to have garnered an estimated whopping Rs 25.2 Crore net, from 370 odd screens in Tamil Nadu during the Ramzan-Vinayaga Chathurthi big five day weekend (August 31 to September 4).

    The film as per trade pundits is likely to net (after deducting entertainment tax) an awesome Rs 30 Crore in its first week! Mankatha will become the second highest opener in history of Tamil cinema after Superstar Rajinikanth’s Enthiran which netted Rs 39.5 Crore in its first week from Tamil Nadu.

    The main reason for this phenomenal opening is Ajith. Remember, three months back he disbanded his fan club, still he could manage such a gigantic opening riding on the goodwill of his silent fan base. There was a sympathy wave across Tamil Nadu for Ajith, a star who never tried to build his fan clubs for making future political moves or use the media to create an aura around him.

    The loyalty and devotion of his fans across the world has made Mankatha take such a huge opening. There is something in Thala as Ajith is affectionately called by his fans, which attracts all sections of the audiences and it worked perfectly as the film was marketed as a solo release during a five-day festival weekend.

    Added to that in a state where politics and cinema go hand- in- hand, the ruling Jayalalithaa government did not interfere in the release of Mankatha produced by her arch-rival and former Chief Minister Karunanidhi’s grandson Dhyanidhi Alagiri and marketed by Kalanithi Maran

    Ajith, has proved with Mankatha that he commands the biggest opening of the season. That’s star power for you. Method acting be damned. People love to come and watch the actor on screen and does not mind whether he plays the bad guy who is mean and malevolent, takes girls for a ride or smokes and drinks on screen!

    He has reinvented the Tamil film mass hero image with Mankatha and the audiences simply loved it, as proved by the box-office.

    The critics can eat crow, because bad reviews or lack of pre-release publicity hardly matters at the box-office if it is a Thala film. He keeps aloof and is never seen at public functions, not even at the audio launch of his films!

    The star has also kept away from the lucrative ad world and does not endorse any product, nor can you see him giving television bytes! Ajith is the only star in the country who refuses to promote or endorse his films, as he has said in many interviews- “My film will do the talking”!

    Today, Ajith is the clear number two at the Tamil Nadu box-office, thanks to his gargantuan opening. Trade pundits say today Ajith power at the Tamil Nadu box-office is second only to superstar Rajinikanth. Why? The money invested in an Ajith film comes back to the investors at a faster rate than any other star.

    Vinayak Mahadevan the character the actor plays in Mankatha echoes similar sentiments – “It’s money,money, money”.
