Working stills from the sets of Vanamagan which is releasing this Friday
Vanamagan is an upcoming Tamil superhero action adventure film written and directed by A. L. Vijay. The film features Jayam Ravi and Sayyeshaa in the lead roles, while Varun play a pivotal role.
Jayam Ravi-starrer Vanamagan is releasing tomorrow, and the trailer has made it apparent that the actor is playing the role of a tribal man who finds himself trying to come to grips with life in a city. The scenes show that the character is bamboozled by technology. The story of a man from the jungle who tries to get used to life in a city to comical effect... Tarzan anyone? Or George of the Jungle perhaps?
This isn't the first time that a fictional pop figure has inspired a Tamil film director. Here are some of the other Western characters that have seemingly influenced the making of our films:
In a country that regularly worships mothers on screen, there aren't many films that showcase the tribulations of a father. Tamil cinema has long milked the mother and sister sentiments. It's always a mother who'd live a life of poverty, get a promise from her son at her death-bed, or a widow who raises a son who'd go on to kill the traitors who murdered his father. Kamal Haasan trolled this concept as early as 1992 in the cult-comedy film Singaravelan, in which his widowed mother (Sumithra) would stare at a photo of her dead husband (Vijayakumar), prompting Kamal to assume that his father was slayed by goons, to which she retorts with "you shouldn't have watched so many films during childhood."These templates eventually paved way for father-centric films in later years. These covered more diverse topics and even went on to represent Tamil cinema in many international film festivals. After all, Indian films are second to none when it comes to portraying emotions on screen. On Father's day, here are some gems from Kollywood that celebrate the relationship between a father and his child(ren).
