Every movie is important for a star. Dhanush is keeping his fingers crossed as Naiyaandi, a comedy family entertainer is releasing on Friday (Oct 11) and remember that it is after a long break that he is doing a puca commercial film.
His last release, the much hyped Mariyaan didn’t exactly create any magic at the box-office. Now, Naiyaandi is a very important film for Dhanush, as the multi-talented actor who has experimented with various genres and done few good cinemas, finds himself badly in need of a hit.
Dhanush is one of the finest actors we have, and his Hindi debut film Raanjhanaa was a massive hit which took him to a national level. But his core market is the audiences of Tamil Nadu, and today he badly needs a hit in Tamil to salvage his position as a top star in Tamilnadu.
Naiyaandi offers him immense scope as an actor who can romance and do comedy. It is said to be a romcom with peppy music by Ghibran, and in tune with the star’s image. The Teddy Bear song sung by Dhanush and shot in casinos & few game centers in Europe is a hit.
He is teaming up with comedian Soori for the first time. The Nazriya controversy has also in a way created an opening for the film.
