Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Rajni + Kamal = Nijam or Poi?

According to the New Indian Express, Rajni and Kamal are going to join hands after a gap of 26 years. The last movie both of them acted together was Ninaithale Inikkum (1979). They might be acting in K Balachander’s forthcoming movie Poi.

Some of KB’s recent releases (Kalki, Paarthale Paravasam) have not found favour with the box office and the presence of Kamal and Rajni should help in ensuring that his forthcoming movie makes a mark. Few days ago, I had the opportunity of listening to an interview with KB on the local radio channel (I guess it was recorded few years ago). KB said that he doesn’t prefer working with top artistes as he is often forced to modify the screenplay to suit the image of the hero. Will KB give roles to suit the image of Rajni and Kamal?


  • I too heard about this. Hope it is true!!! As for suitable roles, I guess we have to wait & watch!

  • he definitely can.rajni and kamal would be willing to forego as much stardom as they can for the sake of their "gurunathar"(mentor).

  • Paarthaley paravasam was KB's 100th movie... and was a major bomb. And Rajini / Kamal in KB's movie ? Am not in for it.

    After CM, Rajini has now created a name for himself. I wudn't want that getting spoilt. While KB might keep taking movies despite flops, I would want Rajini to exit the film industry after a series of hits like CM.

  • Dont expect a full featured role. It will be a guest role where the stars will appear in one or two scenes.

  • I have a question.

    When is there gg to be a revolution in tamil movies?

    Why is there always a std plot of Boy meets girl. Girls meets Boy. Boy likes Girl. Girls doesnt like Boy. Boy convinces girl. Girl Likes boy. But girls parents dont like Boy. Then they fight it out and get together. Throw in a few dance numbers w fat women dancin in the middle of the himalayas and an ugly ass villain with a huge nasty mole. And of course some C grade fight scenes.

    And voila,You have a blockbuster hit.

    The producers of kollywood have been conning you guys. haha. But nevertheless. I still tune in for no brainer entertainment.

    Its fun, its stupid and stupid.

    Oh yeah i forget. The hero must have a beer belly and wear a netted suit and the heroines belly has to be fatter than the heroes.

  • Huh? I presume indilove last saw a Tamil movie ages back. Never mind.

  • I think it will be a guest appearance of both in the movie-as I dont think at this stage Kamal and Rajni can fit into a KB movie genre where lot of imp is given to characterisation

  • kaps,

    i doubt KB wud ask them such a favor. if he asks it will go thro the regular filtering process and will be decided on the merit of the script.

    i think in all KB-rajini-kamal movies..kamal was clearly the hero with rajini being a sidekik/comedian/villian. thats not gonna happen now is it?

  • kaps as far as i know...poi is going to have newcomers playing the lead roles...maybe rajni and kamal are playing guest roles...

  • Interesting!

  • wow that wuld be great.....but i guess it will wishful thinking...:) unless and until poi is going to be true! :)

  • kaps, rare post on kollywood in ur blog.....

  • What are the odds of the movie bombing at the box office :-p

  • @VJ,
    Let's hope it is true.

    I hope these rumours come true. the fans will be in for a feast.

    I too feel that the stars might be willing to forego their stardom to please KB

    it is always good to exit when u r at your peak. but most of the stars (both in filmdom and in sports) try to exit only when they r thrown out of the industry.

    let's hope they get meaty roles

    Kollywood has been setting news standards in bringing out new concepts, innovative movies, technology and music. As Sridhar says it must have been ages since u saw a Tamil movie.

    thanks for putting things in perspective

    let's wait for the formal announcement to know about their roles

    @Hawkeye Bharath,
    it is going to be difficult to accomodate to leading stars in a KB movie, which will give more importance to the script rather than the actors.

    if it is just a guest role, the fans might be disappointed

    do u watch Tam movies?

    let's hope for the best.

    @Ram C,
    Sorry for encroaching into your territory.

  • www.cinesouth.com reports that Rajni and Kamal are acting in the movie, as best friends and business partners who decide to go their separate ways.
    What I said above matches the title of the movie LOL!
