'Deiva Thirumagal' will hit the screens on July15 and this 'U' certificate with not a single cut shows us already of what a family entertainer it will prove to be...

Jayalalitha rejects Nadigar Sangam request

Cinemimi [Tuesday, June 28, 2011]
The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha refused the Nadigar Sangam’s request to hold a function to celebrate her victory in the elections this year. The film personalities belonging to the Nadigar Sangam approached her with this request but the CM turned it down as she is busy preparing the budget proposals and is busy with various other activities to uplift the state.

But the CM has agreed to look into their request to consider allotment of lands within the city limits to build houses because the Paiyyanur land allotted by the previous government was very far off and many were not willing to buy it.

Kollywood's yoga connection

Cinemimi [Tuesday, June 28, 2011]
Be it stress, overweight problems or anything related to the mind and body there is one absolute cure - yoga!. There are now more fans for yoga than ever with celebrities religiously getting to it. The perks - apart from freeing your stress and shedding those extra pounds you get that glow of health which no face cream can give you.

From Hollywood to Bollywood to our beauties down town the ladies have attributed their success mantra to yoga.

Bollywood's Shilpa Shetty was one of the firsts (in the actress) to bring out a compact disc devoted for yoga. The trend has now been adapted by many with even Lara Dutta bring out one in her name!

Back home it is our very own Shriya Saran who became addicted to the positives of yoga. Apart from blogging in favour of yoga the actress now has numerous fans, who have followed suit.

t now looks like she has her contemporary too who has turned to yoga. We are discussing Sneha. Recently lighting up for a films premiere show Sneha flaunted has good looks and beautiful smile and attributed her beauty to the age old Indian practice, yoga.
Even Sonia Agarwal, who has kick started her second innings in the film industry with a role opposite Prakash Raj in the recently released 'Vaanam', has also bagged a role opposite Mukesh in Malayalam, and guess what? The lady, who is in god's own country shooting for her first Malayalam film, is looking absolutely gorgeous.

If lead ladies are practicing yoga for good looks and a great body (plus healthy!), guess what their male counter parts are up to? The guys believe in keeping fit and what better option than yoga for physical and mental strength. Right from our Superstar to Suriya the men in the industry too are followers of yoga!

'Orukku 4 Peru' premieres in Bangalore

Cinemimi [Monday, June 27, 2011]
We had updated you on the short film 'Orukku 4 Peru.' The film which has been churned out by Greenhorns Films is a 30-minute fun experience. It has four young men at the saddles who take the movie ahead. The movie has a fresh cast comprising of Venkat Sundar, Senthil Kumaran, Yashwant, Manoj, Sai, Vigneeshwaran and Shrabani.

Written and directed by Ganesh Kumar Mohan, the film had its previews in Chennai and Bangalore and surprisingly enough the premiere in Bangalore attracted more crowd than the home ground!

At Chennai the short film was showcased at AVM Preview theatre at Vadapalani a week back. Last week the team was in Bangalore for its premiere. The response that the team received from Bangalore was overwhelming!

But mind you, do not shrug this film off as some comedy piece with some youngsters' gibberish because subtly interwoven into the script is a message in this 30-minute reel. It gives you the laughs for sure but it also makes you think as well. The team is also thinking of hitting at major districts in Tamil Nadu as well as some selected spots in the country for showcasing their product.

They might not be Alexander Dumas' four musketeers but these four guys will entertain you for sure! So people better watch out for the four in 'Orukku 4 Peru.'

Chennaiites who snubbed Vikram

Since the movie revolved around the life of an autism victim and important scenes were to be canned in the city, the filmmaker wanted some pivotal scenes to be shot at the busy streets of Chennai.

During such scenes Vikram would be let alone on the roads while the camera would be placed at a distance. Fearing the crowd, his bodyguards and others from the production would walk like bystanders around him.

But, that wasn't necessary folks.

It seems, civilians failed to recognize the star in this avatar. Some people actually thought of him as a madman and snubbed him away. In fact, an old man even went onto accuse Vikram for annoying him!

Whereas, people would flock around Anushka and Amala Paul.

Kudos to 'Chiyaan' Vikram for pulling another great performance that will remain etched in the hearts of fans.

ijay’s father complains to police

Cinemimi [Monday, June 27, 2011]
Vijay’s father and director SA Chandrasekar met the Chennai Police Commissioner Tripathy yesterday with a complaint that a circular has been issued to the Producers’ Council with his signature forged.

It may be mentioned here that SAC assumed office as the Chairman of the Producers’ Council soon after Rama Narayanan resigned in May. Following this, there has been a lot of discontentment in the Council. Adding to the confusion is the circular which stated that the broadcasting rights of the Producers’ Council remains unchanged even after the change in the leadership of the Council.

Condemning this, SAC said that he never signed this circular and sought police help in finding out the real culprit who forged his signature.

Not decided about Vadivelu in 'Rana': KSR

Cinemimi [Saturday, June 25, 2011]
Director K S Ravikumar has said that no decision on roping in Vadivelu for 'Rana', his forthcoming film with Superstar Rajinikanth, had been taken and things would be finalised only after Rajini is back from Singapore.

The 'Muthu' and 'Padayappa' director was reacting to reports appeared in a section of the media, claiming that Rajini wants to have Vadivelu in the project, as he would like to give a fresh lease of life to the comedian, who is suffering for his 'comments' in the campaign during the Assembly polls.

"We all are waiting for the Superstar to come to India. His health is the first and foremost priority. We will decide on Rana only after he is back. As of now, Rajini and Deepika alone have been confirmed for the film," he said.

Reassuring that the project is very much on, Ravikumar added: "Rajini is very interested to restart 'Rana'. It is his ambitious film and it is going to be a real treat to all his fans. I may visit him in Singapore soon."

A 'Vinnaithandi Varuvaya' sequel

Cinemimi [Saturday, June 25, 2011]
'Vinnaithandi Varuvaya' that had Silambarasan and Trisha essaying lead roles as Karthik and Jessie, directed by Gautham Menon made a lasting impression among audience as it was a breezy romantic movie that ended on a positive note, that, although you may lose your loved one, life does go on.

The movie also set a whole new style statement among Tamil cinema fans and the stars set a new identity for themselves through this film.

For all you 'VTV' fans out there, we have some really good news in store for you.

The team of 'VTV' is coming together again, with a sequel for their former blockbuster. Gautham Menon will be directing this project that's tentatively titled 'Vinnaithandi Varuvein' and Simbu will play Karthik again, and AR Rahman will compose the tunes for this sequel.

So will Trisha play Jessie again? In a recent interview with a media house, Trisha expressed she would love to play a Jessie again and she's a good friend of Gautham so we're only hoping she does, however, it entirely depends on the script.

Although there's no official announcement on the project, as soon as Simbu's official fans page in a networking site passed this information to STR�s fans, people started wishing them luck, predicting the story of 'VTV2' and what not.

But it is said that, 'Vinnaithandi Varuvein' will be more colourful, faster and more than just a breezy romantic entertainer.

However, the project will go on floors after Simbu is done with 'Podaa Podi' and 'Vettai Mannan' and Gautham with 'Prem Katha' (Hindi remake of VTV) and his project with Jeeva.

'Vinnathandi Varuvein' is set for a December 2012 release, say sources. Tell us what you feel about a 'VTV' sequel...
