Show Buzz

What's the buzz in tinsel town? The very same Kollywood, the box office that makes or breaks careers, where fame could be instant; failure is instant as well. We dive into the heart of the industry, the men and women of the big screen world who also support and drive branding in retail.

180's surprise!

Though 180's director Jayendra was termed as a rule-maker by the film's crew members, Maniratnam who launched the film's audio gave us a new perspective on the man. Said Maniratnam, Jayendra's mentor, "Jayendra's creativity has always been brilliant. However he is also a nice human being. I look forward to seeing his humanitarian side in all his films including his debut 180." Since the story of 180 with Siddharth as hero and Priya Anand and Nithya Menon as heroines is still under wraps, we have to wait and see!

Gala launch

Grandeur and novelty have become the bywords for most of the frontline directors/actors in Kollywood. Shankar, who leads the league with his mega-budget ventures, is now closely followed by director Vijay. The audio launch of his Deivathirumagan turned out to be star-studded and entertaining too. Interestingly, the invitation for the launch was an album featuring childhood pictures of the entire cast and crew. Apparently Deivathirumagan deals with the life of a mentally challenged man named Krishna, played by Vikram. Is it the director's or the hero's touch?


Remade remakes

Some films never cease to lose charm with time. Chandramukhi and Billa top the list. Rajnikanth's original Billa, remade in Tamil as Billa with Ajith and Nayantara in lead roles, became a huge success and now Ajith is considering working on Billa 2 a sequel to the remake. Similarly, the Telugu remake of the same film titled Billa, with Prabhas and Anushka in lead roles, became a huge blockbuster too. Now the dubbed version of Telugu Billa is again doing the rounds in theatres. Remake roll!
