Happy Birthday Vadivelu!!!
Saturday, October 10, 2015 • Tamil Comments

It has been years since Vadivelu acted as a lead comedian in a film. After a three year exile he returned to acting in 2014 acting in the lead role in two films and both the films failed to make the desired impact. But still Vadivelu rules the hearts of Tamil movie buffs of all ages. His new form of contribution has been for the trolls, memes and photo comments that have become a trend in social media. Many of his dialogues and expressions in films have been used for trolls and memes pertaining to cinema, politics and to make fun at normal people.

Such a man of unparallel contributions to humor in Tamil cinema and also adding its flavor in the day to day life of Tamilians celebrates his birthday today. Vadivelu was introduced to Tamil cinema in a miniscule comedy role by Rajkiran in his film ‘En Rasavin Manasiley’ which released in 1991. For the next few years he acted in such roles and also as a second fiddle comedian to Goundamani or Senthil or both. He slowly evolved as lead comedian in the  films of late nineties and ruled the film industry as a crowd pulling factor for many films till a few years back.

Though Vadivelu’s combination with superstars like Rajinikanth, Kamal haasan, Vijayakanth, Sarathkumar, Sathyaraj, Vijay, Ajith, Suriya and Vikram were nothing short of hilarious his pairing up with Parthiepan  is considered the best by many thanks to the super hit comedy tracks of the duo in the films ‘Bharathi Kannamma’, ‘Vetrikodikattu’, ‘Kakkai Siraginile’, ‘Kadhal Kirukkan’ and many other films.

Vadivelu has excelled as a character artiste in films 'Sangamam', 'Em Magan', etc.and excelled in emotional scenes in these films.

Vadivelu’s character names Suna Paana , Telex Pandian, Kaippulla, Snake Babu and Vakkeel Vandumurugan are still being used by Tamil people to refer others with a hint on their attitude and activities.  Many of his dialogues have made it to the day to day lives of people and the long list includes ‘Vada Pochey’, ‘Thambi Tea innum varala’, ‘Venaam Valikkudhu Azhudhuduven;,  ‘Ennaya Thappu Senjaan En Katchikkaran’ etc. The super hit dialogues and expressions of Vadivelu have been imitated even by star actors like Rajinikanth in their films and this is proof for his popularity among Tamil people.

Currently Vadivelu has started voicing support to the Pandavar Ani of Vishal and other rebel group of actors in the election campaign for the administration of Nadigar Sangam. It has to be seen as a good sign as Vadivelu has started fully connecting with his film industry friends and we can expect good news concerning the comedy king’s professional life very soon.

Indiaglitz wishes Vadivelu a very Happy Birthday and many more achievements and accolades in his acting career.
