விஜயை பற்றி அவர் ரசிகனின் உருக்கமான கடிதம்

விஜய் ரசிகர் ஒருவர் , விஜய்யை பற்றி பலரும் மறந்த ஒரு சில விஷயங்களை மன உருக்கத்துடன் கூறியுள்ளார். தற்போது இது இணையத்தில் வேகமாக பரவி வருகிறது.
விஜயை பற்றி அவர் ரசிகனின் உருக்கமான கடிதம்
தமிழ் மண்ணில் தமிழனுக்கே முன்னுரிமை. ஆனால் இங்கு சிலர் அல்ல, பலர் வந்தேறி நடிகர்களை தூக்கி முன்னிறுத்தி துதி பாடுகின்றனர். ஆனால் இந்த மண்ணில் பிறந்த சக தமிழர் நடிகர்களை குறை சொல்லியே மட்டம் தட்டுகின்றனர்.

வடிவேலு விஜய்யின் புலி படத்தை விமர்சனம் செய்றீங்க, செய்யுங்கள் தவறில்லை. ஆனால் வெளிவரும் எல்லா திரைப்படங்களையும் மட்டம் தட்டி பதிவிடுகிறிர்கள் இது சரியா? விஜய் ஒரு தமிழன், இன்று தமிழ்நாட்டில் முன்னணி நடிகர்களில் இருக்கும் ஒரே தமிழன் அவர் தான். தமிழ் சினிமாவிற்கு வேறு மொழியில் இருந்து நடிக்க வந்தவர்கள் தான் அன்றும் இன்றும் முன்னனி நடிகர்களாக இருக்கிறார்கள்.

ரஜினி, கமல், அஜித், தனுஷ் இவர்கள் திரைப்படம் வெளிவரும் போது இம்மாதிரியாக நீங்கள் நடந்துகொள்வதில்லை ஏன்? இன்று விஜய்யை மட்டுமே மட்டம் தட்டும் நீங்கள் தமிழ் இனத்திற்காக எழுதியதுண்டா? போராடியதுண்டா? சிறை சென்றதுண்டா? ஒரு ஏழைக்குழந்தைக்கு ஒரு வேளை உணவை கொடுத்ததுண்டா? ஒரு ஏழைக்கு கல்வி பயில உதவியதுண்டா? இதை வித்தியா பவுண்டேஷன் முலம் விஜய் செய்கிறார்.

ஈழத்தில் 2008ல் சண்டை தொடங்கிய போது, தன் தாயாருடன் முதல் ஆளாக உண்ணாவிரதம் இருந்தவர் இவர்தான். தமிழ்நாட்டில் சென்னையில் அனைத்து நடிகர்களிடமும் உங்கள் ரசிகர்களின் சார்பாக பிரதமருக்கு கடிதம் எழுதி அனுப்பசொல்லுங்க என்று சொன்னவர்.

2008 இல் ராமேஸ்வரத்தில் போர் தொடங்கிய போது, தன் விஜய் மக்கள் இயக்கம் முலம் பல்லாயிரம் ரசிகர்களுடன் கண்டன ஆர்பாடத்தை தொடங்கினார். ஆனால் தொடங்கிய சில மணி நேரத்தில் அப்போதைய கலைஞர் சொல்லி காவல் துறையேவப்பட்டு கூட்டத்தை அடித்துக் கலைத்ததை நீங்கள் அறிவிர்களா? பிறகு தான் சென்னையில் ஆர்பாட்டத்தை தொடங்கினார்.

அப்போது போரை நிறுத்த சொல்லி தன் ரசிகர்களை தூண்டிவிட்டு பல இலட்சம் தந்திகளை பிரதமர் அலுவலகத்திற்கு அனுப்ப செய்தவர், இந்த தமிழன் விஜய். 2008-2009 கால கட்டத்தில் இந்த தமிழ் மண்ணை ஆண்ட திராவிட கூட்டம் கூட ஈழத்திற்கு எதிராக தான் செயல்பட்டது என்பது நீங்கள் அறிவீர்கள்.

கடந்த மாதம் தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் மேற்கொண்ட கையெழுத்து போராடத்திற்கு 10 லட்சம் ஓட்டு இலங்கைக்கு எதிராக போட twitter பக்கத்தில் வாக்கு சேகரித்தவர் இவர்தான். இவரை தமிழ்நாட்டில் இழிவு செய்ய காரணம் இவர் தமிழன். இவரை இழிவு செய்யும் சிலர் கன்னடம், மளையாளம், தெலுங்கில் இருந்து வந்த நடிகர்களை இழிவு செய்ய மாட்டங்குறீங்க ஏன்?

தொடர்ந்து 10 வருடங்களாக இவர் படம் திரையிடுவதற்கு முன், தினம் சில திராவிட அரசியல்வாதிகள் தூண்டுதலால் இவர் படம் வெளியிட தடை கோரி நீதி மன்றத்தில் வழக்கு பதியும்.

காரணம் இவர் அரசியலில் நுழைந்தால் ஒரு கோடி வாக்குகள் திராவிட கட்சியில் இருந்து பிரியும், அதற்காக எல்லா திரைபடமும் அரசியல் கட்சியால் முடக்கப்படுகிறது. அது சரி நம்ம தமிழன் என்று தமிழனை வாழவைத்துள்ளான்.

Vijay's Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru not dropped

After Thuppakki, Vijay was supposed to don the lead role in the film Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru. This film was to be directed by Gautham Menon. A R Rahman was supposed to compose the music for this film.

Something wrong went in between and the film was dropped. The reason for this was not mentioned anywhere. So doubts began rising amongst Vijay fans. At this juncture, in a recent interview Gautham Menon was asked about this.

When asked why the project was stalled in the first place Gautham has said Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru is a film that has London as its backdrop. Since the story takes place in London, I had initially written a lot of dialogues in English. But Vijay backed out of the project saying that this film wouldn't appeal to his fans. 

Talking about reviving the project, Gautham has said the project has not been shelved and that he will soon start working on the film once he makes some adjustments in his script. Whether or not Vijay will be a part of the film is not clear as of now. 

Earlier there were reports that Vijay backed out of Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru as Gautham Menon was reluctant in sharing the entire story to Vijay. When Vijay lost his cool he requested Gautham to get back to him whenever he is ready with the full script. 

Now we all know that Gautham is a director who refuses to divulge everything about the script even when he is working with top actors. Whether Vijay will adapt himself to Gautham's style of filmmaking or whether Gautham will opt for a different actor when he re-starts his work on Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru remains to be the question of the year.
