Touted as the next superstar of Tamil cinema, Vijay is reportedly keen on getting everything right with 'Villu'. An average showing with 'Azhagiya Tamil Magan' and 'Kuruvi' has not helped Vijay's journey to the numero uno position for the future. Despite being on the top amongst young heroes, the actor has to come up with a string of successes to consolidate his position.
Vijay's magnetic appeal in the B and C centers has seen to it that even his average movies somehow scrape through at the box office. But this is a trend that might not continue for long especially with the influx of talented young filmmakers experimenting new styles of storytelling in Tamil cinema. These innovative approaches have been recognized and appreciated by audiences. The surge of quality filmmaking is bound to tighten the noose around run-of-the-mill stories.
After the stupendous success of 'Pokkiri', the remake of a Telugu film by the same name, Vijay has teamed up with Prabhu Deva once again, to reproduce the success. Sources say 'Villu' is expected to have the usual dose of fights, dance, sentiment-filled sequences and loads of dialogues that 'glorify' Vijay. These are facets that are loved by the 'typical' Vijay fan. No matter how well these elements reach out, the story and narration hold the key to the long run. This is where Prabhu Deva and Vijay have to be extra careful.
There is a talk doing the rounds as to what the story of 'Villu' is going to be like. It goes like this....
A group of baddies kill an honest, hardworking man. The man's wife and son are somehow spared. The son (Vijay) grows up under the impression that his father had perished in an accident. But then, as the story goes, Vijay learns of the malicious plot that got his father murdered. An angry Vijay hatches a plan to bring the murderers to justice and in the process falls in love with the daughter of a baddie, played by Nayantara. Inevitably it is justice and love ahead of Dad and so she toes the lines of Vijay's plans dutifully only to succeed.
Even a die hard Vijay fan would be hoping against hope that this is just a rumor and the actual story is in fact a new gripping tale. If this rumor turns out to be true, one gets the feeling Vijay will have to get back to square one, rethink his strategies and start all over again in order to get things right.
Only time will tell us the truth. So, let's hold our horses and wait for the story to unfold. Keep an eye on IndiaGlitz for updates.
