Thalaivaa Story Synopsis - Naduvazhikal remake ???
The trailer of much awaited 'Thalaivaa' was released online few days back and as expected it broke many records in YouTube. According to the makers it tells the story of a common guy becoming a leader of/for masses. [The following might be movie plot spoilers, so be careful before you proceed].
The detailed story/synopsis of the movie is kept under wraps. There has been news spreading in social medias that the film is a remake of 1989 Mohanlal Super Hit 'Naaduvazhikal'. All of A.L Vijay's previous films were either remakes or drew inspirations from other language movies. So there is a chance for this being an inspired work or official remake.
Naduvazhikal tells the story of a common man who is forced to leave his leisurely life & comeback to native place to fight for his father and the people that believed in him. From information available from various sources Thalaivaa also follows similar path.
Vijay's character who is [supposedly] a dance teacher in Australia forced to comeback to India when something happens to his father, played by Sathyaraj, who is like a leader to many. Vijay meets his enemy's here, they have many confrontations. In one of the leaked stills we can see Sathyaraj's garland ridden photo on the wall, which might indicate his character getting killed by enemies and Vijay taking his revenge on those who are responsible - just like Naaduvazhikal climax.
Even if these predictions/guess work proves to be true lets hope AL Vijay can bring something new to the table
Naaduvazhikal itself is inspired from the cult classic Hollywood Mafia movie 'The Godfather' which has inspired many movies like Sarkar (2005), Rajneeti (2010) & Simhaasanam (2012)
