Unnecessary Comparison of #Suriya42 With 'Baahubali'!

Ever since SS Rajamouli broke the shackles of regional markets and went pan-Indian with 'Baahubali' franchise, a lot of filmmakers are trying to do the same. Right from 2015 when the first part was released, a lot of directors and producers across the industries have tried their luck in making fantasy or historic movies. Tamil star hero Vijay made 'Puli' which was made on a grand budget and had big names like late Sridevi, Kicha Sudeep, Hansika Motwani, Shruti Hassan, Prabhu and others playing main roles. The movie ended up being a failure.

C Sundar announced a 500 crore project named 'Sanghamitra' and this multi-starrer was shelved immediately due to various reasons. Recently, 'Ponniyin Selvan – 1' was referred as Kollywood's answer to 'Baahubali' but it did not get the expected result in any other language barring Tamil. Despite all of this, some Tamil producers are giving statements that they would come up with movies bigger than 'Baahubali'. Producer KE Gnanavel Raja who is the owner of 'Studio Green' banner is making a period drama with star hero Suriya. It is being called as #Suriya42 for now and director Siva who made movies like 'Vivegam', 'Veeram', 'Vedhalam', 'Viswasam' and 'Annatthe' is directing this movie. The team is spending a lot of massive amount on this project and Suriya is doing five different roles.

Disha Patani is the heroine and they are planning to release the movie in 10 languages. Devi Sri Prasad is giving the music. The teaser is expected to be launched in April and the release date will also be announced then. While all this is good, claiming to be bigger than 'Baahubali' on multiple occasions is leading to unnecessary trolling. Suriya is known for his tremendous acting and it is without a doubt that he will give his everything for this movie. But speaking such things after the release will be more justifiable according to everyone.
