Superstar Rajinikanth is known for clashing against powerful women antagonists in his films including Maapillai (Srividya), Mannan (Vijayashanthi), Padayappa (Ramya Krishnan) and Chandramukhi (Jyothika).
A few years back, Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush remade Maapillai but the film had failed to make enough noise at the box office.
On Sunday (June 25), Dhanush launched the new theatrical trailer of Velai Illa Pattadhari 2, which has a heavy Mannan hangover that the actor seems to have many combination scenes with the film’s baddie played by Kajol of Minsara Kanavu (1997) fame, who plays a rich industrialist Vasundra. Each and every scene in the trailer is a rehash of VIP and there's nothing new but few predictable punchlines, Vivek's comedy one-liners and a slow motion cliched entry for Kajol.
However, the trailer of Velai Illa Pattadhari 2 has attracted the fans of Dhanush, who feel that all necessary elements in the first part have been retained. Fans are also happy that Anirudh’s VIP BGM, which was missing in the teaser has been used in the trailer (due to public demand?)
Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, VIP 2 is all set to release on July 28 (Dhanush’s birthday).
