Sivaji in Malaysia, America, Qatar, Hydrabad, Mumbai, Kerala . .
(Saturday, 16th June 2007)

June 14 9.00 pm was the first day first show in malaysia in 5 theatres, PJ state lotus, Colesium, Damansara cineplex and sentul cineplex.  I managed to
get tickets for the first day first show through my fren in lotus in PJ state. Good news is, this is rajini sir's 0 tamil movie and i managed to get tickets.

We all went  early, and started our coverage. I gave a briefing to our group members who came and explained about our group and our activity. Than with the help of pal and yogz, we started the video coverage, We managed to interview the public on their opinion on sivaji and thalaivar. Annother good news, one of our
group members who took my invitaion and joined us did have a fren who is a Rajini sir look alike. We did invite him and he came in the baasha get up. We did a coverage on him and the few of us including me took photos with him.

Almost around 9pm, trouble started. Movie  reel did not arrive from Tamil Nadu on time and movie is delayed. By that time, the public had already known that we are from fan club and were expecting us to
talk to the theartre people, which we did. They promised to start the show at .30pm. Everyone waited and at .30 they announced 9pm show is cancelled due to unavoidable situation.

That is where me and two other important members in our group who assisted me a lot went into the office and had a very long discussion with them. It was me, pal and yogz. The reel only arrived at 12 midnight. We pressured them to open their second hall and show both the 9pm and 12am show  simultaneously. At last they did. This is when the public was seen thanking us. Its a joint effort by me and the two others.

QATAR

பல நாடுகளிலும் சிவாஜி வெளியிடபோவது பற்றி முன்னமே பல அறிவிப்புகள் வெளியான நிலையில் கத்தார் பற்றிய ஒரு செய்தியும் இல்லாத காரணத்தில் ரசிகர்கள் மனதில் ஒரு சோர்வு வியாழன் வரைக்கும் இருந்தது. 

ஆனாலும் பல ரசிகர்கள் ஒரு நம்பிக்கையுடன் இருநதனர் அதற்கு காரணம் சென்ற முறை சந்திரமுகி வெளியிடப்பட்டதுதான். 

அந்த நம்பிக்கை பொய்க்காதவகையில் வியாழன் அன்று மாலை திரை அரங்கத்தில் போஸ்டர் ஒட்டி
முடிக்கும் போது ஃபார்மாகியிருந்த பெரிய கிய ;வினை கண்டு அனைவருக்கும் அதிசயமாகத்தான்
தெரிந்திருக்கும்.
 
வெள்ளிக்கிழமை காலை எட்டு மணி முதல் ரசிகர் குவிய ஆரம்பித்தனர்.  வெள்ளிகிழமையாதலால் மதியம்தான் முதல் காட்சி ஆரம்பிக்கப்பட்டது வியாழன் இரவு பாதி டிக்கெட் விற்பனை முடிந்ததால் காலையிலேயே குவிந்த தமிழ்நாட்டு ரசிகர்களின் க ;ட்டத்தினை கட்டுப்படுத்த முடியாமல் திரை அரங்கினர் மிகுந்த சிரமத்திற்குள்ளாயினர்.

எது எப்படியோ முதல் காட்சி முடிந்து வெளிவந்த ரசிகர்களிடமிருந்து வந்த கோரஸ் கமெண்ட்

க ;ல்....! (தனனனணா...தனனணா...!)

 

KERALA

Rajnikanth and his Sivaji were released in a record 86 screens spread across Kerala, with 26 cities having multiple screens. This is the first time a film is released in Kerala with such grandeur, not even the films of Mammootty or Mohanlal, the reigning superstars of Malayalam cinema ever had such a wide release. The highest so far has been Mohanlal's Thandavam and Chandrotsavam which were released in 64 centres each, and the fate of both were washouts in the second week.

Palakkad witnessed  great showoff, with caparisoned elephants carrying the print to the theatre  yesterday with a rally of 1500 fans .The first show of the film in the state happened  here, with show starting at 4.30 am, in the first theatre 'Aroma  and 5.00 in the second, in the early hours, today.

In the capital  city of Thiruvananthapuram, a Tamil stronghold and Mohanlal's home town, Sivaji becomes the first film to release in four screens-`New`, `Sreekumar` Sreevishakh  and `Kairali` with a combined seating capacity of approximately 3900seats per show. The film is having 17 shows in the capital city itself. Recently Vijay;s Pokkiri has created history by completing 0 days in a big capacity theatres in the capital city.

At Ernakulam, the highest collecting centre in the state it is releasing in two huge screens- `Shenoys` and `Padma` with a seating capacity of 2300 per show.

In Malabar area, the citadel of Mammootty for the first time a film is releasing in 30 screens including three in Kozhikode- `Apsara`, `Ganga` and `Radha`. And to the greatest surprises, the Sivaji holocaust has virtually killed the star films that continued in many centres. Almost all the prints, except two or three, of Big B and Chotta Mumbai were removed from A class centres, atleast for a week to accommodate the big brother from Tollywood.

For the first time in the state, the show rates of the film were hiked for a few days with special consent from the state government. The initial response of the first show audience predicts the film to be the biggest ever hit in the Indian film history. As the film has driven his fans into a frenzy state, the processions with cutouts followed after the first shows in various centres.

UNITED KINGDOM

First tamil movie in UK released in so many theatres. Ayngaran released the movie (14 theatres in UK, London – 8 theatres). It’s a sweet surprise to know that the number of shows has been increased in cine world Feltham & Ilford & couple of other theatres.

When i went to Feltham cine world on 14th evening for the 6pm show (thalaivar padam 1st day 1st shownna summava) the complex was fully packed & all I could hear around there was just 3 words 1) Rajini 2) Rajini & 3)Rajini. & no words to express my feelings when I saw the display in the ticket counter SIVAJI – & 12A (the rating which means 12 years& above can watch the movie) & there was a flashing of a word FULL. I have not seen a Tamil movie running houseful; yes there was an exception which was Chandramukhi. I just managed to reach the theatre on time & could hear the whistle sound & SSss chanting all over the hall.

I was astonished to see quiet a few couples with their kids (not more than 6 or7 years old).

The movie started & must appreciate director Shankar for not testing our patience by delaying SS’s entry on the screen. The moment he appeared guys… believe me the screaming, whistles & thalaivaaaaaa sound; am sure the theatre staffs have been wondering ‘what’s on the earth happening over here’!!!!

From that time till the movie ends, I was asking to myself ‘If London is facing this response, how it will be in Tamilnadu!!?? Chumma bhoomi adhirummla!

The show finished @ 09:20pm; came out of the hall quickly grabbed a popcorn & a coke & stand in the LONG queue again for the 09:30pm show. While I was buying coke; I did asked the staff there have u ever seen such a crowd for any other movies? or even any other Indian movies ever able to display the ‘House Full’ board. That person is an asian & said to me ‘Brother yes couple of movies have met what you mentioned now. But I must admit I have never seen such a response for any other movie. I don’t understand this language but by seeing the crowd I feel like I want to watch this movie. Hows it!! ??. Next day after I finished my work at 11PM, took a bus & reached the theatre for my 3rd darshan. Thanks to a friend who watched the movie for the 2nd time because he booked the ticket for me & again it’s a houseful show. Even today {16/6} reports came from friends that all the shows from 6pm till the 11:30pm shows were houseful.

Well guys… I must admit after waiting for soooo long & the hype created by the media. This movie is a PUKKA RAJINI movie; well Shankar is the director of this movie.

Never seen SS as fresh as this in any movies & big hats off to Shankar for breaking the typical rajini looks. Oru koodai sunlight & Adhiradikkaran songs will be remembered for a looooong time. Also must admit Shankar have done an excellent job in extracting the skills from SS.

I couldn’t believe after being such a powerful actor in the industry for more than 25 years; SS doesn’t have any ego; a must to be learned by the so called YOUNG generation actors. Which actor will be mentioning other actors name (apart from today’s actors mentioning SS’s name & MGR’s name).

1) Rajni saying ‘My complexion will be as like kamalhaasan’.

2) Dancing for a Vijay’s number.

3) Literally imitating Vadivelu’s famous dialogues.

From Chandramukhi I could feel that SS wants to come out of his traditional movies & successfully he is achieving it.

In short SIVAJI – THE BOSS for sure is a hit for the mass! & proves again that why rajini is the boss of box office.

Few Amazing things I heard & saw during this time.

• Our group’s member (www.rajinifans.com) watched the FDFS at Ilford; he mentioned to me that two ‘English women’ were passing comments during the movie ‘first half of the movie is typical rajini comedy & the 2nd half is totally different’. Also while I was watching for the third time on 15th night show; I saw 3 English women in the theatre. It’s very true Language is not a barrier not only in love; but for a RAJINI’s movie as well!

• Also couple of fans were asking for tickets in black for the 3rd day show!!! Sathiyama it’s in London!
