    Movie effect: Vijay fans thrash and burn freebies given by AIADMK

    0

    ‘Sarkar’ controversies are still continuing and now it has become Vijay fans vs AIADMK leaders in Tamil Nadu. The latest development is that several of Vijay fans thrash away and burn freebies like laptops, mixers and grinders given by AIADMK government during elections.

    There is a scene in the film that shows burning of freebies, like mixies, grinders and fans, which were distributed by political party. This scene was indirectly referring Jayalalitha’s scheme and so AIADMK leaders objected showing this scene as they felt it an insult to former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. After the objection from AIADMK govt, Sun Pictures, producers of the movie, agreed to chop-off the scenes of the film. However, government forcing makers to chop-off scenes didnt go well with Vijay fans and they started thrashing and burning freebies and posted the vides of same in social media. These videos, that have now gone viral on YouTube and WhatsApp, fans of Vijay are seen setting fire to mixies and grinders with stickers of the late AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa.

    However, people’s response for Vijay fans acts is mixed. Some people commented, “Funny to watch such videos but very sad to see TN state is filled with fools to be influenced by actors with vested interests”. But some others see it as positive development because people will slowly start opposing freebies by political parties.

Though the cops denied the news, AR Murugadoss took twitter to reveal the arrest. Soon several celebrities came out to support AR Murugadoss.

    Now the top director moved to Madras High Court requesting for anticipatory bail following the Sarkar controversy row. The court will hear the matter today and their decision is expected before evening. Several AIADMK supporters say that some of the episodes criticize Tamil Nadu Ex-Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

    Late anti-freebie crusader Balaji is ‘Sarkar’ hero

    0

    Nearly a year after the demise of 44-year-old anti-freebie crusader-advocate S. Subramaniam Balaji, Tamil movie “Sarkar” has stirred a controversy over the freebie schemes of the state government.

    The ruling AIADMK was angry at the Vijay starrer for criticsing their schemes. Its cadres protested against “Sarkar” outside theatres in Coimbatore, Chennai and Madurai.

    The credit for this anti-freebies crusade though goes to the late Balaji who died on November 2017, couple of months after meeting with a road accident and suffering head injuries.

    Balaji fought against the freebie schemes of the DMK and the AIADMK governments going up to the Supreme Court.

    The apex court in 2013, while not banning freebie schemes, had ordered the Election Commission to frame guidelines for political parties to announce freebies in their election manifestoes.

    Balaji had strongly felt a golden opportunity was lost to reign in political parties from creating private assets out of public money to be in power.

    The top court had observed that promising freebies in the election manifesto doesn’t amount to corrupt practice under Section 123 of the Representation of Peoples Act, while ordering the Election Commission to frame guidelines for political parties.

    The court gave the ruling after Balaji filed the case against the distribution of free colour television sets by the DMK to the people as part of its pre-election promise in 2006.

    In an attempt to outdo DMK, the AIADMK then under late J. Jayalalithaa promised mixers, grinders, fans and laptops and other freebies during 2011 assembly polls.

    Cheap rice, free TV, free power, free stove, cash dole promises by political parties is nothing but “bribery”, Balaji had contended.

    So, it is neither Vijay nor “Sarkar” director A.R. Murugadoss who could be termed as anti-freebie fighters but the young crusader Balaji.

    A government cannot enrich private individuals out of consolidated funds. Giving free land or free TVs or monthly cash doles are precisely that, Balaji had said.

    Hailing from a family of lawyers, Balaji’s father N. Sivasankaran is a High Court lawyer, his elder sister Mahalakshmi Ramaswamy is a lawyer, too.

    Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan responded on Sarkar Controversy

    0

    Superstar Rajinikanth and Universal star Kamal Hassan responded on the ongoing controversy on Vijay’s latest film Sarkar. It is known news that AIADMK party is demanding Sarkar team to remove scenes condemning government schemes and freebies and other scenes that are indirectly referring Jayalalitha. The party’s cadres is resorting to unlawful activities like damaging film banners and threatening the unit.

    Rajni tweeted in support of actor Vijay’s “Sarkar”. He condemned unlawful acts done by political parties such as damaging the film’s banners and demanding the removal of certain scenes from the film. He also told, it is not appropriate to remove scenes from a movie that is already censored. Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, “Sarkar” movie revolved around contemporary political system. Ever since the movie released, party cadres have been protesting outside various theatres in Tamil Nadu and indulged in damaging the banners of the film and cut-outs of Vijay. They also demanded certain scenes to be removed from the film. Rajinikanth condemned these acts. He took to Twitter and wrote ,”To protest for the removal of certain scenes from the movie and stop it from being screened after the Censor Board has certified it is against the law. I strong condemn this act.”It is known news that earlier, during Mersal controversies also Rajni supported Vijay and his movie.

    Meanwhile, while talking to a TV channel, Kamal Hassan also condemned interference in content of the film after censor certification. He said, “It isn’t new for this Government to act and pressurise against a film like Sarkar, that has completed its censor formalities properly. A government that does not have the guts to face a criticism can go off the tangent. Commercialised politicians will soon be vanished and the good people would win.”

    On the other hand, reports are coming that distributors / exhibitors, makers of Sarkar agree to cut controversial scenes from film on the pressure of AIADMK leaders.

    Midnight Stir: Attempt to arrest AR Murugadoss

    Tamil film Sarkar, starring Vijay in the lead role and directed by AR Murugadoss, has raked a political storm with its controversial dialogues on current politics. Late on Thursday night, Sun Pictures, the production house behind this film, has tweeted that police have reached the residence of director Murugadoss to arrest him. This news has created a lot of panic in audience and Kollywood. However, Chennai police denied the news and said it was just beat patrolling which is their regular duty.

    Minutes after this news came out, Murugadoss tweeted ‘ Police had come to my house late tonight and banged the door several times.Since I was not there they left the premises. Right now I was told there is no police outside my house’

    While Sun Pictures alleged that police came there to arrest Murugadoss, a senior police officer said that they were just checking the security measures at the director’s house.

    Interestingly, all this drama happened a day after Tamil Nadu law minister warmed to take strict action on Sarkar team for some of its controversial dialogues and scenes aiming at political parties. There were protests by AIADMK supporters to remove such scenes and mute dialogues that offended their party.

    Section 49P tops in Google trends, thanks to ‘Sarkar’

    0

    Vijay’s Sarkar movie that got released 2 days back received poor reviews from critics in Telugu as well as in Tamil. But the controversies and the trends it creating generating curiosity among common audience. Already there is a controversy as AIADMK leaders alleging that Sarkar movie insulted Jayalalitha and her schemes that generated curiosity among people. Now there is one more news about Sarkar.

    Sun Pictures, the producer of the movie, shared the statistical report and tweeted through it’s official handle, “Google search trends peak for #49P after the release of #Sarkar. Actually, Sarkar film revolves around section 49 P, an important election law, that allows a person to have the right to get back his/her ballot back and vote, if in case, someone voted in that person’s name. Sarkar discusses about this law elaborately in the movie as the core point of the movie is a powerful CEO coming to know about someone else utilizing his vote illegally.

    After the release of ‘Sarkar’ movie, people have started to Google search for section 49P to know more about it. As a result, this section 49P attained a peak on Google search engine. Probably, as a maker, this must be happiest thing for Murugadoss irrespective of box-office numbers

    Controversy: Tamil Nadu minister warns ‘Sarkar’ team

    0

    Vijay’s latest movie Sarkar landed into controversies. The movie severely criticized the freebies given by the governments to people and has references to freebies provided by AIADMK government. Another controversy is the movie indirectly referred Jayalalitha and shown her in bad light.

    Tamil Nadu State Information and Publicity Minister Kadambur C Raju has warned Sarkar team to remove some controversial scenes from the movie. Thse are scenes that show people throwing away freebies provided by the Tamil Nadu government. Director AR Murugadoss himself makes a cameo appearance in the movie and throws the State-provided mixer grinders and wet grinders into the fire. Now these scenes creating tremors in the state of Tamil Nadu. Kadambur C Raju said the government would take necessary steps to chop the scenes if the makers don’t remove them voluntarily. Minister also added, “This is not good for an upcoming actor like Vijay. I know people won’t accept these scenes. It was brought to our knowledge and this was disappointing.”

    All Vijay’s movies in recent times have been landing into troubles as he is showing up his political ambitions in his movies. Vijay’s previous movie, Mersal had similar controversies as it had dialogues on GST and demonetization. Mersal got severe criticism from BJP’s Tamil Nadu President Tamilisai Soundararajan but that actually helped Mersal getting more collections. Now Sarkar getting oposition from AIADMK. We will have to wait and see if this also helps Sarkar collections in Tamil Nadu.

    Sarkar Review – Unconvincing political drama !

    Sarkar Tamil Movie Review Sarkar (2018) Review Rating

    Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5

    The blockbuster combination of AR Murugadoss and Vijay, which gave super hits like Thuppaki and Kaththi, reunited for a political thriller named Sarkar. The teasers and trailers have generated a solid buzz on the film and AR Rahman composed the tunes. Will AR Murugadoss and Vijay continue their success streak ? Let’s find out.

    Story :

    NRI, USA based GL Company CEO, Billionaire Sundar Ramasamy visits India to cast his vote on Election Day. After being rejected his right to vote, Sundar gets determined to fight a legal battle with the election commission. His fight with electioneering process, very soon turns into a political rivalry with the ruling party. As re-elections approach, Sundar decides to directly take on the chief minister in the latter’s own constituency. Rest of the film revolves around how Sundar tries to outsmart formidable ruling party, how the ruling party tries to counter his activities…

    Performances:

    Vijay as Sundar carries this film solely on his shoulders. Keerthi Suresh as politician’s daughter got a lengthy role but insignificant. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is the surprise pack, as CM’s daughter she played the villain role. Yogi Babu Comedy is decent and is limited three scenes though. Radha ravi is a good fit for the political role.

    Analysis :

    SARKAR takes off in an interesting manner but turns superficial as it progresses. Initial scenes such as Introduction Song, Sundar’s entry to India, Rejection of his vote were fast paced. However, from there the story’s primary point isn’t much convincing. Why would election commission or courts would cancel already completed elections in entire state if one person couldn’t cast his vote? No matter how many legal cases are filed, such decision is far from reality. However, first half is an average as it is stuffed with commercial elements to appeal Vijay Fans. Second half is not up to the mark. Climax, pre-climax scenes have many unconvincing elements. On Election Day, hero gets some credible evidence against the ruling party chief. But Sundar waits until 2PM before go live on Facebook to disclose the video to the voters. By that time 53% voting is done. On Election Day contesting candidates are not supposed to do canvassing to influence the voters is another major point Murugadoss has missed. The mind game between Varalaxmi , Sundar hasn’t been told in engaging manner. For Vijay fans this film may work because of fan moments at regular intervals.

    Couple of fights and background score stand out. Finally, this film is far below than the Vijay – Murugadoss’s previous combo ‘ Katthi ‘ , and doesn’t even match Vijay’s previous film ‘ Mersal ‘

    Verdict:

    SARKAR is very strictly for Vijay Fans. This film has been designed, executed as an out and out political drama to fulfil hero Vijay’s real life political ambitions. Director Murugadoss has come up with an unconvincing plot, infused some commercial elements at regular intervals.

    No promotions for Sarkar Telugu version

    0

    Tamil Superstar Vijay has been struggling to establish his market across Telugu states. His last outing Mersal raked decent numbers in Telugu and is the highest grosser among his films in Telugu.

    Vallabhaneni Ashok acquired the Telugu theatrical rights of his next film Sarkar for Rs 6 crores and the film has been sold for Rs 7.70 crores across AP and Telangana. With no big releases for Diwali, the film is expected to register decent numbers in Telugu. AR Murugadoss is the director and Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar are the heroines.

    Though the film has been carrying huge buzz in Tamil, the Telugu version is expected to open low. The movie stills of Sarkar are not given to the Telugu producer even after several attempts. Vijay clarified that he is not in a mood to promote the Telugu version of the film. After a debacle like Spyder, AR Murugadoss too is not keen on facing Telugu audience and fans through promotions. With just hours left for the release of Sarkar, the promotions for the Telugu version are yet to kick-start.

    Vallabhaneni Ashok and his team are left in shock with the happenings. Vijay who is struggling to establish his market should spend ample time for Telugu promotions. Right from Kamal Haasan to Suriya, Karthi and Vishal, all the Tamil actors have focused on promoting their films in Telugu. But Vijay turned out to ignore Telugu audience which will soon leave him behind in the race in Tollywood.

    USA rights of the film are bought by Kollywood Movies & Narmadha travels for 4.10 Cr excluding VPF costs. This is the highest for a Non-Rajini Tamil Film in USA. Now Let’s calculate the breakeven gross for the film in USA.

    USA Rights : 0.56 Million (4.10 Cr)
    Expenses: 0.14 Million (1.00 Cr)

    Total: 0.70 Million

    As the distributor can get a share of little over 50% of the collected Gross the film has to do 1.35 Million Dollars for Break-even which is equal to the gross of Mersal which is Vijay’s biggest till date.
