Rajinikanth gives an honest appraisal of Jailer during a success meet, saying Anirudh’s music improved the film: ‘It was mediocre…’
Rajinikanth’s comments at the Jailer success meet, in which he called his film “average,” drew notice. Here’s how the internet reacted.
Rajinikanth’s Jailer, which was released on August 10, became one of the top grossing Tamil films of all time, breaking numerous box office records along the way. Jailer’s cast and crew recently celebrated the film’s success. According to Galatta.com, Rajinikanth stated during his statement at the success meet that the “film was average before the re-recording was done,” and that it was Anirudh Ravichander’s music that made the film a blockbuster.
Rajinikanth claims that Anirudh ‘changed Jailer’.
I watched the film without the re-recording first. I then asked Sembian and Kannan sir for their thoughts on the film. Kannan was glowing. I assured him, ‘Nelson is your friend, and you will certainly appreciate him.’ I then asked Sembian, who said the film was mediocre. But, before the re-recording, I thought the film was acceptable. However, Anirudh raised the film in a ‘My God’ manner. After applying cosmetics, he transformed Jailer into a bride-to-be. “Superb,” Rajinikanth commented, according to Galatta.com.
The veteran actor also commended the technicians who worked on Jailer, particularly cameraman Kartik, saying he ‘didn’t anticipate him to lend such an effect to the picture’. Rajinikanth continued, “The effect was superb after editor Nirmal took the film and filled it up completely.”
Reactions to Rajinikanth’s remarks
The creators posted a video of Rajinikanth’s remarks on YouTube. In response, someone said, “He has never hesitated to talk about what he feels.” Such a high-quality find. Name someone in the industry who stated in his 600 crore plus film’s success meeting that my film was above average.” “What a speech, what a man, so down to earth,” observed another. “The only one.”
Some, however, were not pleased with Rajinikanth’s statement. “Movie is totally awesome,” one person said. Nelson has completely vindicated Rajinikanth’s image as a superstar. People in northern India went completely insane while viewing the film. Rajinikanth should respect it and not call the film into question.” “Rajinikanth should understand that music alone cannot make a film successful,” stated another. His remark may have a negative impact on the director’s and team’s confidence.”
Rajinikanth’s Jailer is a smash hit.
“I swear, when this film became a hit, I was only happy for five days,” the actor declared during the triumph party. After those five days, I began to worry about my next picture and how to make it even bigger a success now that there will be higher expectations. I’m telling you, I’m stressed out about my next film and don’t know what to do. I must also address this. Kalanithi sir was the first person to see the movie with Nelson and Anirudh. When Anirudh wondered if it would turn out like Petta, Kala sir said that it is the Baasha of 2023. Then, during the audio release, he declared that the film will be a mega-hit and a record-breaker. It’s not easy to declare such a thing in public, which is why I believe he can become an astrologer.”
Jailer has made almost 650 crores worldwide. It is also the second fastest Tamil film to reach the 600 crore mark, following Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 in 2018.
Jailer, directed by Nelson and starring Rajinikanth, also stars Vasanth Ravi, Tamannaah Bhatia, Yogi Babu, Ramya Krishnan, and Vinayakan. Kannada sensation Shiva Rajkumar, renowned Malayalam actor Mohanlal, and Jackie Shroff also appear in the film. Anirudh Ravichander created the soundtrack for the film, which was produced by Sun Pictures.
