Be imaginative: In Thuppakki, when Jagadish (Vijay) finds out that the . In Kaththi, during the press conference, Kathiresan asks –“When we. On Monday, protesters held a press conference conveying their Vijay himself has been in similar state of affairs when movies of his like.
The first look poster of the film, which had Vijay smoking a cigar, faced flak from social activists and Murugadoss had to clarify later that he had removed a brief smoking scene in the film and the poster was released only for promotional purposes. Post-release, nearly 23 Muslim outfits from the state staged protests against the film by reasoning that certain scenes offended their sentiments and portrayed their religion wrongly.
Succumbing to the pressure, Murugadoss tendered an open apology in a joint press conference with representatives from the Muslim community and promised to delete the controversial scenes. Talking to Firstpost, industry analyst Trinath says, "When it comes to movies, whether it's positive or negative, any publicity is good publicity for the parties involved.
While it's true that Vijay's films have traditionally faced a lot of pre-release and post-release controversies, there's no denying the fact that they definitely played a key role in also keeping the cash registers ringing. The film faced a delayed release of two weeks in the state after the removal of the tag from all the publicity posters and promotional videos.Thalapathy Vijay Speech + Kaththi Press Meet Scene - Dedicated To Farmers - Thalapathy Vijay
The frivolous bomb threats to theaters screening the film enabled the state government to suspend the release. Vijay's effort to meet Jayalalitha in Kodanadu Tea Estate to seek protection for theaters and clarify his stance ended up in vain after her representative collected the petition since the actor was refused entry stating he had no prior appointment.
Another industry insider who wishes to be anonymous claims that it's not pragmatically possible to chart out controversies for every single film as a marketing tool.
In Vijay's case, most of the issues are quite circumstantial, and some are, certainly, politically motivated," he said. Vijay's blockbuster Kaththi ran into plagiarism charges followed by unprecedented protests across the state after pro-Tamil groups accused producer Subaskaran Allirajah of Lyca Productions of alleged business ties with the then Sri Lankan President Mahinde Rajapakse.
Miscreants had hurled petrol bombs at the famous Sathyam Cinemas and vandalised it before the city police arrested them. Vijay later released a statement confirming the withdrawal of Lyca Productions' name from the film's title credits.

Popular Coimbatore distributor Tiruppur Subramaniam, in a recent video interaction, opined that Vijay should focus on his film career for another ten years without disturbing anyone since he's in great form now. He's at the peak of his career now and the numero uno box-office star in the state," he remarked.

The release Puli left Vijay fans anxious because of the surprise IT raids conducted at the premises of his resort and residence in addition to the properties of the film's producers Shibu Thameens and PT Selvakumar. The film also had to battle a significant financial quagmire before Vijay had to intervene to settle the dues following the cancellation of early morning shows.
However, he should be also be a little wary of his speeches at audio launch events. Murugadoss are back with their second outing together, Kaththi. The film features Vijay in two contrasting but physically 'identical' dual roles, Kathiresan and Jeevanantham. While Kathir is a crook who is on the run and one with 24 previous visits to the jail, Jeevanantham is a sober, educated activist who strives for the betterment of his impoverished village where water is a big concern.
Their paths cross very early in the movie and the film is set in motion. Vijay has used this opportunity to play diverse roles in the same movie and proves his experience as a performer and as an entertainer.

While Kathir is high on theatrics and is the Vijay that we have enjoyed on screen in many mass entertainers, Jeeva is fresh and non-Vijay in every aspect. Kathir is bound to be a fan favorite while the audiences are likely to empathize with Jeeva and his motives. In that aspect, Kaththi is a strong movie for the actor Vijay.
Coming to director A. Murugadoss, he has touched upon many issues close to his heart such as rampant corruption, farmer suicides, the plight of senior citizens, water scarcity, the workings of the sensational news-hungry media and also goes on to vilify the corporates and their aggressive expansion plans without considering their CSR corporate social responsibility initiatives.
The one scene late in the second half, when Vijay delivers an intense monologue on the above mentioned issues, is a definite highlight in the overall scheme of things. But it does try to get a little manipulative as the director has played to the gallery to win the audience's sympathy towards farmers and make us root for his protagonist.
One feels Murugadoss could have gone a step forward and tightened the screenplay. The placement of all the songs leaves a lot to be desired, specially the much talked about 'Selfie Pulla'.
But the dancer Vijay sparkles effortlessly in all these songs.
