Like Bala even Ameer is one director who could change the image of a hero and put him on the fast track for the better. ‘Mounam Pesiyathey’ Suriya, ‘Ram’ Jeeva, ‘Paruthiveeran’ Karthi they all had the biggest break in their careers with the films of Ameer. Even Ameer was continuously critical of mass heroes self praising characterisation and attitudes in films. But after his own ‘Yogi’ bombed Ameer has changed and is seems to be moving towards mainstream popular cinema.
So when he was expected to start the different ‘Kannabiraan’ with ‘Jayam’ Ravi, Ameer boarded the popular wagon and launched ‘Adhibagavan’ which he calls a commercial entertainer. Going further in his move towards entertaining cinema Ameer has expressed his strong desire to do a film with Vijay.
Speaking at a film function recently Ameer said that after ‘Mounam Pesiyathey’ it was Vijay who he approached with a story. It could not happen for some good reasons and Tamil audience had the wonderful opportunity to see films like ‘Ram’ and ‘Paruthiveeran’ from Ameer. But Ameer still wanted to do a film with Vijay. It may soon materialise sooner than expected because Vijay’s father SAC has given positive signals to Ameer.
If Ameer and Vijay join hands what would you want the film to be? A Ameer film or A Thalapathi film?
