Engeyo Kaeta Kural

I happened to watch this movie in Jaya TV today. This is one of the few movies in which Rajini chose to do something outside the regular commercial formula which he is dishing out nowadays. Only when watching these movies we really feel at the decision of Rajini not to do an offbeat movie. Rajini has proved his mettle in doing character roles in many movies and they were successful too but still he chose the commercial route.

People call that Rajini took the easiest route compared to Kamal but I think it is the other way around. For Rajini if the film is successful he is safe else he will be trashed for making a flop movie and for doing commercial movies. In Kamal's case it is a very safe passage. If the movie is a hit he will be praised that he is the man who can make an offbeat movie a commercial success. If it fails he will be praised more saying people didnt understand his view. So either way he is safe.

I feel Rajini despite having the potential to do such artsy movies chose the commerical route and robbed us of some fine movies.

I wish Rajini goes backs to his roots and provides one solid performance based role before he signs off from movies. That will be a treat to watch.
