Vivek going strong completes 25 years, next is Mapillai


Thanks to director K.Balachander again that apart from Tamil cinema also got a comedian of great caliber in Vivek who started his journey through Manadhil Urudhi Vendum back in 1987.It has been 25 years hence and over the years the actor evolved not just as a comedian but someone who really makes you think with his sarcastic social commentary or be it the mimics of famous stars that have been a trademark of his style .Talk about imitation being the best form of flattery you bet is there any doubt that were not flattered when you laughed your heart out with his tickling performances onscreen.

With more than 160 films under his belt and still counting he will be seen in upcoming release Mappillai, with Dhanush as Child Chinna. The movie is produced by Sun Pictures and is scheduled for an April release.

We asked director Suraj about the movie here is what he had to say,

Sir could you give us a gist of the movie’s script and Vivek’s role in the movie?

As mentioned earlier although it is inspired from Rajni sir’s Mappillai we have re written the entire script. Vivek is Child Chinna in the movie a youngster, trying to somehow clear his higher secondary examination after failed attempts. He has an important role in the movie it will be different.

What could the Dhanush fans expect from this movie sir?

Well they can expect a wholesome treat .It will be the best commercial entertainer for his fans. Thank you.

Seems like Vivek has quite a role to play in this one, we can expect a good support from Dhanush too, let’s wish them the best and especially Chinna Kalaivanar for his cheerful stint in the industry.


  1. I wish a hard core leader took charge of Thamilnaadu and killed not only all thugs but all jokers and all girls who argue against radical change of the present Thamil culture. I hate jokers and laughing.
