Vijay is happy with the success of Velayudham

Vijay Velayudham hit

The year 2011 has turned out to be an extremely lucky year for Ilayathalapathy Vijay. The actor, who didn’t have a successful few years from 2006-2010 where many of his films failed to live upto expectations, had his Kaavalan opposite Asin releasing early this year amid heavy ‘political’ opposition from the erstwhile regime in the State.

Velayudham Success Party Stills

Kaavalan, a remake of the Malayalam super-hit film Bodyguard, ran successfully at all centres, breaking Vijay’s spell of lean films for the past few years. The film’s success also put him back in the reckoning to be courted by leading directors and producers. After the success of Kaavalan, Vijay signed up director Shankar’s Nanban (another remake film, though), which provided him the first opportunity to star in a film by Shankar.

He is also set to star in AR Murugadoss’s next film and has also committed to do a film for Gautham Menon by the commencement of the ensuing year. Vijay has expressed his delight that his Deepavali release Velayudham has been running successfully at all the centres all over the State and elsewhere. He has also opined that remaking successful films from other languages is a ‘healthy’ trend.

“I consider ‘remakes’ as a healthy trend; in fact, I’d love to do more films like Nanban, a remake of the Bollywood super-hit 3 Idiots. Nanban is sure to delight my fans and movie-goers as it gets the ‘Shankar’ treatment. I’m very happy about the success of Velayudham and would continue to do many more commercial ventures which are ‘treated’ differently by the directors,” says Vijay.

  1. i watched this movie and calling it a success is a joke. the whole movie is same old story made for particular section of the mass. 7 am arivu is far superior and sophisticated. now do not mistake me for surya or vijay fan.

  2. Jeyam Raja was on is own track of remaking .This movie also remake movie from Telugu Azad, it is not is success and for Vijay too.

  3. maran except bodhidharma episode all the scenes remembers kamal dasavataram biowar concept continously villain chasing hero every thing is same nothing new in 7am arivu

  4. HIS FATHER HAS BECOME THE FILM DIRECTOR’S ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT AND THE MOTHER HAS BECOME SOMETHING AND AMMA HAS GIVEN THEM THE FULL BACKING. WHEN U HAVE ALL THIS U CAN MAKE ANYTHING TO BELIEVE. EVEN THE ACE FILM DIRECTOR’S FOR THEIR OWN SURVIVAL HAS TO MAKE MOVIES WITH HIM. HIS FAN BASE IS AN EXAMPLE FOR THE RECEIPE TO COME.

  5. ATLAST THE SILENT WARRIOR CAME BACK WITH HIS POWER GUYSS..
    NOTHIN HERE AFTER TO SAY DUDE
    WHEN MANKATHA BCUM A HIT WE PPL VIJAY FANS HAD T GUTS TO RECOGNISE T…
    BT WEN VELAYUDHAM BCUM A HIT WY YO PPL DNT HAV T GUTS…PITY ON U AJITH FANSSS
    THIS YEAR DIWALI S ONE $ ONLY FOR VIJAY FANS…..
    HIP UP ZURRRRREEEEEE..

  6. Doing a remake once awhile is fine but on a routine basis…it’s boring.Even if he is a mass hero,he can choose fresh scripts.Why does he want to play safe by re doing successful hits??Well,as for Velayutham,I am not surprised that it is a hit.Thanks to his highly influential parents and die heard fans….any crap churned out by Vijay,will rule the roost.

  7. Even Nagarjuna, Raguvaran and many other popular stars acted in Azad, th emovie was flop.
    But in Tamil its Mega, Mega, Mega, Himalaya Hit.
    So shut u r ____. Ajith is not the best actor to comment on Vijay. 

  8. honestly this is bull shit …this movie is piece of shite …i cant sit in the theator .. predictable story …..stupid ppl! anyways I hope this is last movie from vijay as his same old action flickz… i need something diffferent grow up

  9. Salman Khan, and bollywood is remaking  most of our tamil movies. especially Salman khan picks on Vj movies.
     Kamalhasan’s  movie vasool raja, avai sanmugi, Ayiratil oruvan and another few movies are remake of English movies. Surya’s Khaka khaka and gajini is copied from English movie also. Its all remakes.  Kollywood ,tollywood,bollywood,hollywood etc .Everyone copies and remakes here and there. Its  all done by all actors.

    As for VJ the scripts are choosen to suit  VJ style.

    Cinema is no 1 business no 2 entertainment. Producers who spend money want to make movie what ppl want to see and gives them profit. Which is masala entertainment. The actors has huge responsibilities.

    Vj knows the trend so he plays safe.

    If you notice there are some movies which are good like Hey Ram, Dasavatharam and serious movies which was not successful because it did not have commercial ,masala values.

    Personally velayutham may have a the usual vj stuff, but it certainly not a crap. It was a pure entertaining movie. Dont look at VJ just watch the movie, u will enjoy the movie bcoz its not a “VJ HERO WORSHIP MOVIE”

    Lastly I dont think its fair to say bcoz his parents are influential Velayutham  was a hit.
    Sura and last few movies was not a hit, what have u got to say about that???

    Your comments about VJ is totally biased and seems like envious of his stand.

  10. I dont understand why ppl are comparing  Velayutham and 7am arivu.

    Its two different kind of movies. Velayutham is pure masala entertainment wherelse 7am Arivu is a different genre movie.

    Both the movies have plus and negative points and one movie is no better than the other as far as velayutham and 7am arivu.

    Both Vj and Surya are good actors with their own style.

    Both of them have given flops and winners.

  11. All the songs in the movie is nice and so is the choregraphy. Its so wonderful to watch both Genelia and Hansika. And the jokes are so hilarious..vj and santhanam… How could you not have enjoyed these things in the movie???? and u r calling this movie a crap??

  12. I am not a movie freak so i can’t give detailed examples like you but you failed to understand my comment.I did say doing a remake once in a while is fine but not always.So doing remakes isnt a sin.Sura and his last few movies were neither hit nor flop.It was average.Besides,there isnt any reason for me to envy Vijay.What do i gain by envying him?He has given good films no doubt.But nowadays he is repeating the same stuff over and again.Well,i’ll have to wait for Nanban.See how that one goes.Jokes may be hilarious bec of Santhanam.Genelia and Hansika are beauties.Agreed.But songs are so so.There were better songs from his previous films than this.I don’t like his current style and i just stated my views.

  13. THIS VELAYUDHAM MOVIE IS A TOTAL FLOP 🙂 …ALL THE FUCKING VIJAY FANS ARE SIMPLY TRYING TO HIDE…HE…HE…HE…

    VIJAY THIRUNDHAVEY MATTAN….THE WORST HERO IN THE WORLD

  14. billa2 story leaked hero will come and walk and then he will shot with gun and tell come back……but he will never come back…………… the movie end………..great story…..sure hit
