Sivaji re-wrote almost all box-office records in Tamil cinema. It was also the first film to create a huge international market for Tamil films in particular and Indian films in general. Released in 2007, the film was a huge success at all the places it was released.
Efforts are on to change the film in 3-D mode and release it as soon as possible in theatres. Rajini had the curvaceous Shriya Saran pairing up opposite him. With Vivek’s comedy and Rahman’s music to prop up the proceedings, the film was lapped up by Rajini’s fans. It was produced by AVM Productions and directed by Shankar.
Rajini appeared in many get-ups in song sequences and played an NRI in the film who wanted to start a medical college but was troubled by Suman (who played the evil educational administrator) and the government’s typical red-tapism. He then launched his own technique to unearth millions of ‘black money’ (unaccounted sum) from these millionaires.
It is said that the 3-D version of Sivaji might be released in theatres before the theatrical release of Rajini’s Kochadaiyan which is planned in December.
