Starring Captain

When so many Tamils are suffering in the south of the border, it is difficult to pretend that Kashmir problem is more important for us to resolve. India governed from up north does not want to entertain the seperationists in SL because it would hurt their standpoint in Kashmir and Assam. But didn't they help B'desh to break free from Pakistan. Hail! Vaiko.

As a first step, I want to see Vijayakanth make a movie around the Srilankan Tamil crisis. The storyline is ready.

Vijaykanth is a tailor in a remote village in Tamilnadu .A tailor who does not have his own shop, Captain goes from house to house to earn his living.

The scene shifts to Chennai. The DGP, IGs, DIGs, Home minister and other law and order personnel are summoned by the Chief Minister for an urgent meeting to discuss the murder of an Indian dignitary during his recent visit to Sri Lanka. Various strategies are brought to the table but nothing promising. That is when one low-ranked, honest police officer stands and mentions the name "Kumaresan". The entire room goes silent. Who is this Kumaresan, the CM asks innocently.

Scene shifts to a very busy marketplace where a few goondas are creating havoc. The sirens of the police van brings the area SI who gets beaten up badly. At the right moment enters Kumaresan (Vijayakanth) and the rest is ...

A few incidents like this during a direct confrontation with the villain Kumaresan falls into a trap and as a result his family members (Simran as wife , and two children get killed) and Vijayakanth gets blamed for bribery or something like that.
After serving a few months in jail, Vijayakanth returns to his native village and changes his name to Ravi and occupation to "Tailor". Thus ends the flash back.

The government goes back and forth trying to persuade Kumaresan to rejoin the forces. Kumaresan hesitates but eventually agrees to join the mission. But he wants it to be a "One man operation". However this one man operation includes Senthil (comedian) and the village pannaiyar's daughter who is madly in love with Tailor Ravi (even before the real story is revealed).

Vijayakanth leaves for Srilanka (in disguise) with his customary manja jolna pai and azhukku veshti. He wants to really mingle in the LLTE group to understand how they operate and to dismantle them from within. He reaches Mullai Thivu on a Kalla Thoni. From there he gets an acquaintance who helps him reach Jaffna, the headquarters of LLTE. He, somehow manages to enter the organization and quickly rise in the ranks. He is now the right hand for the head of LLTE Mr Sirupillai Kripakaran. He becomes third in command after Sirupillai and Ilamsingam.
Although he is here on a mission to thwart the LLTE from inside, Kumaresan soon realizes that the LLTE is an organization comprising of good people and the Tamil cause is just. His focus soon shifts on the SL govt. His investigations revela that the SL givt. is using its power to blame LLTE and show the organization in poor light. How Captain successfully brings out the truth and gets freedom for Tamils can be seen in the Silver Screens.

Vishy,
FLight odum, boat irukkum helicopter parakkum - inspite of all that enga Captain neenji povaaru, because his arms are more powerful than the aircraft propellors or the boat's engine. Nee avara romba under estimate pannaadha. Aana why he chose kalla thoni? Maybe because :-
1. His one man army comprises two additional people.
2. He didn't want the manja jolna pai to nananjify. It contains important "dacuments".

Ajay,
idhu verum script thaan, dialogues apparum dhaan.

WE WILL MEET
WILL MEET
MEET.

The Story Sounds good, but sometimes the smiple stupidities and too many flash back and irritants from the gaputan movies makes u wanna deteste it.

But the real question I wanted to ask, whats your personnal take on the LTTE?

Cheers,
NY?

NY,
I have no personal interest or affinity towards the LTTE or infact any extremist outfit. However I feel for the Tamils of Srilanka (the general public like u and me).
