Vijay throws a grand success party for Mersal team!!
Vijay’s latest outing Mersal continues to mint big bucks at the box office. The movie stormed screens worldwide on Diwali day and right away set the box office on fire. It soon went on a record breaking spree and has raked in over Rs 200 crores from collections earnings across the globe. Mersal is fast progressing to become one of the highest ever grossers in Tamil cinema.
Vijay hosted a big success party at his ECR residence in Chennai last day. The party was attended by almost all the technicians of Mersal. Director Atlee, composer AR Rahman, cinematographer GK Vishnu, editor Ruben, lyricist Vivek and art director T Muthuraj were all present for the party. A couple of photos taken in the party are trending virally in social medias.
Mersal marked the reunion of Vijay with director Atlee after the blockbuster success of last year’s Theri. Expectations were sky-high this time around and one can definitely say that Mersal lived up to all that. It is a commercial mass entertainer in which Vijay plays a triple role as a village head, a doctor and a magician.
The movie has a regular revenge story that also has a very relevant social message about the medical facilities in our country. Mersal caught nationwide attention after the ruling BJP demanded removal of scenes that allegedly criticised their schemes. BJP’s political pressure has not had any impact on the movie’s box office earnings but has only done a world of good as audience are thronging theaters in large numbers out of curiosity.
Director Atlee jointly scripted the movie along with veteran KV Vijayendra Prasad and Ramana Girivasan. This big budget film is funded by Thenandal Film Studios.
