Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s new movie Kuselan is slated to release in the U.S on July 31.
Featuring Rajinikanth, Pasupathy, Nayantara and Meena in key roles, Kuselan is a remake of the Malayalam movie Katha Parayumpol.
Pasupathy is a fine actor and we are keen on watching him in Kuselan.
But the thought of watching those hopelessly incompetent actresses Nayantara and Meena fills us with dread.
As for Rajinikanth, it hardly matters whether this fella can act or not. His charismaÂ is enough to draw the crowds.
Vadivelu presumably provides the comedy angle.
Kuselan is said to be the story of two friends – a superstar actor (Rajinikanth) and a poor barber (Pasupathy).
Kuselan is produced by K.Balachandar and directed by P.Vasu (director of the Rajinikanth’s 2005 blockbuster Chandramukhi).
Music is from G.V.Prakash Kumar while Arvind Krishna gets credit for the cinematography.
It remains to be seen if Kuselan can match the success of Rajinikanth’s previous movie Sivaji.
Tamil movie fans are sick to death of the garbage coming out of Kollywood lately: Dasavatharam, Kuruvi, Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Bheema, Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan et al. Let’s pray thatÂ Kuselan has a decent EQ (Entertainment Quotient).
We hope that tickets are priced at a reasonable rate for Kuselan. For Sivaji, we had to shell out $25 per ticket, which we thought was a total ripoff.
N.B.: Kuselan is also being released in Telugu under the title Kathanayakudu.
