One of the most successful collaborations in Tamil cinema, ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay and director Atlee have tasted grand success with each of their films they have worked on together. Starting with Theri in 2016, Vijay and Atlee then continued their blockbuster run with Mersal in 2017 and have yet again hit the bullseye now with their recently-released, Bigil, which came out worldwide this Diwali. In that light, an Assamese action drama film titled, Ratnakar: A New Myth of Love, said to be loosely inspired from Theri, has also become a blockbuster hit now. Ratnakar revolves around a single father played by Jatin Bora and his struggle to raise his daughter portrayed by Dubori and goes on to build on their bond.
Ratnakar: A New Myth of Love hit screens on October 11 and has been basking in box office glory with over 80% occupancy in theatres in Assam while also going on to take the biggest opening for an Assamese film. Ratnakar also has Barsha Rani Bishaya, Nishita Goswami, Rina Bora and Ashramika Saikia under the J.B. Production banner with music composed by Zubeen Garg, cinematography by Pradip Doimari, and Pratim Khaound for editing. Theri, which also had Samantha Akkineni and Amy Jackson as the female leads alongside actress Meena’s daughter, Baby Nainika and J. Mahendran in supporting roles, was the start of a highly successful partnership for both Vijay and Atlee, with the film going on to collect over 175 crores in box office collections.

RKFI's reply to Thalapathy Vijay fans on social media - picture goes viral
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 05:09 PM
Marking Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan's 60 years of journey in the field of cinema, Raaj Kamal Films International have been hosting special events. We had recently seen the team arranging a special screening of the legend's cult classic, Hey Ram, followed by an interaction with Kamal himself. RKFI's next big plan is the musical concert that is to be conducted by Isaignaani Ilaiyaraaja. Yes, we had already reported about this grand musical night event and the event organisers also came up with its announcement recently.
This music concert, which is called as Ungal Naan, will see the presence of all the big stars from the South Indian film industry. Superstar Rajinikanth has already confirmed his presence for this event which will be happening on November 17th at Nehru Indoor Stadium. RKFI has been presenting the invites personally to all the actors and we saw the pictures of Rajinikanth, Ilaya Thilagam Prabhu, Vijay Sethupathi and director Mani Ratnam posing along with the invites.
RKFI didn't release any pictures of inviting Thalapathy Vijay and this took the fans by doubt. A section of Vijay fans, on Twitter, questioned RKFI asking if Vijay was invited for the event. In no time, RKFI replied back stating that the invite has been delivered to Vijay and he was excited to see the invite. RKFI shared the digital invite of Vijay for the fans who were quite happy about it.
The fans are puzzled to know if Vijay will attend the event and we are yet to get an update on it. With Thalapathy 64's shooting planned for the next one month in Delhi, we are not sure if he will be able to come down to Chennai, but, let us keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
Thalapathy @actorvijay was super excited to see this wonderful invitation from @ikamalhaasan. Celebrating #60YearsOfUlaganayagan! #UngalNaan @RKFI @turmericmediaTM #Mahendran#60GloriousYearsOfKamalHaasan #Kamal60 https://t.co/f76QKt2v9R pic.twitter.com/kgelGy8zAv— Raaj Kamal (@RKFI) November 13, 2019

By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 06:48 PM
Adult comedy films and adult romantic films is one of the recent trends in Tamil cinema. We have seen films like Trisha Illana Nayanthara, Hara Hara Mahadevaki, Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu, 90 ML, in the past and we now have one more film to add up to this list. Veteran director and actor S.A.Chandrasekar has made an adult romantic comedy film featuring Jai, Vaibhavi Shandilya, and Athulya Ravi in the lead roles. Titled as Capmaari, the theatrical trailer of this film was released recently. The trailer was filled with double entendres with typical SAC touches in the visuals and the dialogues.
There are two interesting aspects to notice in Capmaari; this will be SAC's 70th directorial project, while it will be Jai's 25th film as a hero. The makers have now released the first single from the film and this song is called 'Ummunu Irukkanum Usupethuna'. This energetic dance number is crooned by Anirudh Ravichander and penned by lyricist Mohan Rajan.
The song has quite a lot of Thalapathy Vijay references and it is catered to the fans. The song has been released on the official YouTube channel of Lahari Music who owns the film's audio rights. On the technical front, Capmaari has music by Siddharth Vipin, cinematography by Jeevan and editing by GK Prasanna. The film is right now in the final leg of post production and we can expect the film to release by the end of this year. Check out the 'Ummunu Irukkanum Usupethuna' song from Capmaari here:
