    mani directed Rajini..'coz of rajini is the great actor.he is the wonderful entertainer in indian actors.the dialogue delivery of rajini fantastic than any actor.he is the perfect match of DON character.but vijay he don't know how to act.
    if mani going direct a new movie.he can direct a movie with surya or ajith.if it is a love story.then it wil be a madhavan .if it is a don character that must be "Ajith" .if it is a normal commercial story.that may be ajith or surya.
    if it is film for historical then it wil be for vikram..

    vijay can dance for one song in his film.'coz he knows that only.

    but manirathnam wil take atleast 10 months for one film
    it is not possible for vijay.'coz he acts 3 films per year and earn more money.and mani will not allow any provoke dialogues against any actors in his movies.and also he is a decent director.but vijay wants dappa kuthu song..and introduction song (it is only for rajini in indian cinema )
    and mani want perfect acting.that he wil not expect frm vijay.vijay never do like that acting.and he wil not take risk.vijay's irritating dialogues r not possiblr in mani's movie..
    first vijay has to learn more in real life and also acting.
    he doesn't know how to behave others.his route is not correct.he hides all what he is doing behind the scene

    interesting point about the historical ... i remember reading somewhere that mani ratnam's dream project is to adapt Kalki's "Ponniyin Selvan" to screen ...

    hmmm ... if this were to materialize, i wonder who would play the title role ?!!

    don't know how accurate this is - informed hubbers please shed light !

    hi hubbers ..this one is really a good thread ..

    well lemme tell u the only malayalam film that MR took was "UNARU" staring mohanlal...

    got a feeling only a few here have seen the movie " IRUVAR ".. eventhough the movie wasn't accepted by the mass, it was critcally
    acclaimed...

    i wud rate nayagan,iruvar,kannathil muthamittal and roja as the top 5 MR movies..

    nayagan is definitely on top inspite of some scenes taken directly from the eng movie "the godfather"

    talking of The Godfather ... it really would be interesting to find out to what extent mani was actually influenced by coppola's film. you know, i saw Nayagan much before i saw The Godfather ... both films are equally engrossing and i've seen both many times since ... but frankly, i'm yet to figure out the scenes in Nayagan which were lifted directly. except maybe the killing incident which makes him a "dada" - in Nayagan it was inspector kelkar, while in Godfather it was vito corleone killing the local don fanucci.

    Mani's Unnaru in Malayalam was based on Labour struggles. Typical Mallu concept in 1984. Very early days of Mohanlal. He was good. Movie was so-so.

    MR was a classic.Great dialogue/screenplay and ofcourse music.
    Geetanjali was another beauty.Best music in a mani movie ( I love oh papa laali) and great performances.

    nayagan/agninakshatram are Mani movies where he deviates from typical commercial formats.Kamal was great in nayagan and so was karthik in AN.

    Anjali was brilliant.Sheer magnitude of making movie with so many kids.Great screenplay.Great photography as well.

    Roja/Bombay/Dil se were of same concept normal man in midst of terrorism.Roja was the best.Other 2 were ok.

    I liked Thiruda Thiruda a lot.Superb entertainment and best music by ARR in a Mani movie.No classic but pure fun.

    Iruvar was sheer poetry. It went way over audience head. But Mohanlal/Prakashraj, dialogues took the movie to another level.

    Alai payuthe was ok again not great so was Kannathil Muthamital.
    I have not seen Yuva/AE so I can't comment but reliable sources were dissapointed.

    My top 5 Mani movies (chronological order)
    1) Mouna Raagam
    2) Geetanjali
    3) Anjali
    4) Thiruda Thiruda
    5) Iruvar.

    I think Nayagan is Mani's best movie till date.. Mounaragam depended heavily on Ilayaraja alone.. Without Ilayaraja music, it would have gone for a toss. But Nayagan was excellent.. The way he portraid Kamal, the scenes with Karthika etc was really good... Geethanjali, Agninatchathiram, Anjali, Dalapathy are all more musicals.. and masala-mixed

    interesting - i know mani made a kannada film to begin with, but a malayalam film with mohanlal?! didn't know that ... i thought Iruvar was the only film they had collaborated on.
    and talking of Iruvar, mani actually went on record to say he was disappointed that mohanlal didn't get the national award for his brilliant performance in that film ...

    Is it true? I have a doubt ramsri. Kalki's 'ponniyin selvan' is a superb historical novel that portrays the tradition of tamil kings. I have read that more than thousand times. The narration of kalki was simply superb. Lot of twists and tricks.. oh.. what a talented story writer he is.. I think current directors should opt for separate dialogue writers rather than writing their own ugly dialogues.

    I still have a doubt whether Mani can bring the same unique style which Kalki used in his novels to the silver screen. The characters in the movie should be played by matured actors and I think Mani knows this clearly. But the problem might be the budget. Producers might not feel very good to spend crores and crores for this film even if it has popular actors.
