After watching Vijay starring in Beast Tamil movie written & directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and then Kamal Haasan starring Vikram written & directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, it was like day and night when it came to quality, storyline and action. It was no doubt that Beast was the dumbest movie for the year 2022. Then we had Rajinikanth starring Jailer written & directed by the same Nelson Dilipkumar. So what could possibly go wrong, right?

Nostalgic Tamil Song 101: Sivaji Ganesan As The Hardworking Babu & The Beautiful Idho Endhan Deivam 1971
A screengrab from the 1971 Tamil movie, Babu starring the late Nadigar Thilagam, Sivaji Ganesan and a very young Sri Devi. It was pointed out that the first of October was Sivaji Ganesan’s birthday and had he lived, he would have been 94 years old this year.
Sivaji Ganesan passed away on 21st July 2001 at an age of 72 and by then had acted in some 288 movies; a majority of it has been in Tamil movies.
There has always been a showcase of Kamal Haasan’s talents in whichever movies that he is involved whether it is an aspect of storytelling, acting, dancing, singing or direction and to play the romantic, tragic hero in his movies, Kamal Haasan always has that look that simply melts the heart of anyone who watched him in tense moments.
