An interesting review on Rajini & Chiru
(Saturday, 4th October 2008)

It is always interesting to compare one thing with the other or one person with the other. When you compare, the similarities and differences among the two pose interesting facts.

A few issues back we compared Ajith and Ganguly as "Thalayum Dadavum". Your mails to us showed how much interesting and different article it was to you all. This article is another shot at giving such a "Super" comparison to you.

"Thala and Dada" briefed the similarities between two men from different fields whereas this article is going to talk about two men travelled along the similar path but differed in only one point in their life.

When we say M.G.R in Tamil Nadu, it will echo as N.T.R in Andhra. Many Tamilians worship MGR and NTR is Andhra's Devudu (Means GOD in Telugu).

When their fans were betting that their favorite actors cannot be replaced, the younger generation started putting Rajini and Chiranjeevi in their places.

As the Music lovers of those days call "Old is gold", Rajini and Chiranjeevi are still gold in the minds of the fans for the past 25 years.

Let us ignore the oldies comparison. Now, the expectations on Rajini's Political appearance and the appreciation of Chiranjeevi's Political appearance are the result of the younger generations thinking about how their Favorite actors going to help them.

Let us first see the similarities between Rajini and Chiru. They both started their experience with Cinema in Chennai Adayar Film Institute. Chiru is Rajini's junior in the Institute.

Then, their relationship was just a Hi-Hello relationship. But today, they are like kith and kin. Chiru also entered the Cinema as a villain and became a hero. Both were introduced to the film industry by Director Balachandar. But Chiru did not receive the same opening as Rajini.

Also, the fan fare for Rajini in Andhra in the beginning of his career got reduced after Chiru's arrival. May be the fate decided that these two should become Super Stars in Tamil and Telugu.

Their Commercial Masala films are not the only reason for them to be the beloved Mass heroes of their fans. Their simplicity, the way they mingle with others, their broad mind, their generosity are also important factors. Generally, in Tollywood, the cine industry was dominated by a few families. It is difficult for persons with no background to become a star in Tollywood. There is a rumor that ven if someone comes up, those families don't like that. But, denying all those rumors, a Police Constable's son became the Super Star of Tollywood. He also encourages any new faces that come into Tollywood. This approach of Chiru, has tied Junior NTR and other family members of NTR in his love.

Recently, Dr.Rajasekar – who is used to act in movies like Ithu Thanda Police, Nee Mandhiriya Iruntha Enakkenna – has criticized Chiranjeevi's Political Entry. This agitated Chiru's fans and they attacked Rajasekar's family. Chiru did not like this and he went to Rajasekar's house, waited for an hour and apologized to him for what his fans had done.

No one can deny that Rajini also has the similar Greatness. In 1996 elections, Manorama criticized Rajini personally on many political speeches. But still he forgave her and gave her a role in Arunachalam.

Recently, the two men who had similarities in place, position, stardom, image and respect, are taking different directions in their life journey. "I did not get eternal peace even when my films were super duper hit. But when I started this blood bank and served the people of Andhra, I attained the Eternal Peace. To get that peace of mind on a permanent basis, I came to Politics" was the reason given by Chiru for his Political Appearance.

While Andhra's Super Star came to people for his eternal peace..

Our Super star singled him out of the public and started going to Himalayas. This is certainly a big Turning Point in both their lives.

Okay, while everyone is expecting him to come to Politics, Rajini gave this short story as his answer why he does not want to come to Politics "Some one asked Ramana Maharishi once. The world is going worse and worse everyday, but Big saints like you are staying in Arunachala instead of purifying the people's mind and activities. Ramana Maharishi replied 'The God, who created you, me, this sky and the world, is least bothered about this, why you are worried about this? First you purify yourself. If everyone purified themselves, then the world will get purified'. Like that, I am purifying myself. I am living to my consciousness. It is not my business to change everyone. God has given sixth sense to everyone and they should use it to change themselves and their family".

He also briefs this as "If a man has peace in his mind, then he will never go into violence". Rajini understands that there is politics in this divinity. Politics in Divinity? What kind of Politics is that? What is missing in this for the Rajini fans? – "If a change happens in every human beings mind, then they don't need another human being in the name of 'Leader' to lead them to Change" – This is the Politics that is hidden in Rajini's divinity.

But in contrary, Rajini fans believe that "Change starts with the Leadership of a Great Human being like Rajini". This is causing unnecessary confusion on both sides until today.

There are two types of Goods.

Close all the doors meditate and save oneself from doing evil things.

Go out in the world, face all the evils and fight them to achieve good. 

Rajini's favorite Osho also preaches the second Good. Osho says "Don't run away from problems, face them brave and bold and win them". People also remember the greats who face their problems and win. This is the secret behind MGR living in the minds of people even after his death.

This is the news that is conveyed to Rajini in this – "Mega hits and Super Star Image may create an entry in the Cinema History. They don't store in people's mind for long time. Only people with Service mind stay there forever".

He does not have to be a Politician for that. Because, Kamarajar and Anna don't live in People's mind because of their Political brandname. Their service to the people before even coming to Politics brought them that place.

Chiranjeevi may or may not succeed in his Political Arena. But, there is something that he did will keep him in the People's mind forever. That is the Blood Bank that he started keeping only public service in mind. This blood bank acts like a corporate company in two levels. This blood bank is saving many lives in the entire Andhrapradesh. Chrianjeevi is bearing all the expenses for this blood bank.

If a fan brings the blood donation certificate, then he can take a picture with Chiranjeevi. This is the basis of the Blood bank that Chiranjeevi started. This has made Chiranjeevi's picture to hang in many hospitals across Andhra. It is not great for an actor's picture to be placed in a Cinema theater. It is really great if it is hung in a Hospital. The Andhra Superstar has achieved this in his life time.

Rajini may avoid coming to Politics as he personally wish, but he has a responsibility to prove himself among the people outside the film industry like Chiranjeevi.

It is high time he uses his Image – which is unused since 1996 – in good ways. Or at least he should let his fans do something. Even actors who were born with a silver spoon are now mingling with public and spending their money and time with them has become common now a days. But being grown up as an ordinary middle class and achieved the Superstar status, Rajini shouldn't single himself out of the public and not showing his social responsibility is a big Question mark in his life.

After seeing Kuselan's results, this looks like the right time for Rajini to take a better and urgent decision.

i read this aricle in one monthly magazine.. i'm confused whether they stole it or we stole it.. exactly the same story.. but, it gives some valuable point.. thalaivar also first should start some goodwill movement.. see the support from the common people and then should plunge into politics..

i cant understand this article. Are u saying that our thalaivar did not do anything to people? This is purely absurd. He did many things to people. The main mistake he did is he did not say or show the things he did to people to this world."Valathu kai kodukurathu idathu kaiku theriya koodathu" nu solvaanga. Adhathaan namma thalaivar seiraar.Adhu thappa?.Apparam chiru senja udhavigal(blood bank) ellam pinnaadi politicsku nalla udhavum. For that reason he did these things. Fans can ask their thalivar to come to politics or to start an organisation.Adhu children parents kitta kekkara maadhiri.But others have no rights to say about this. Apparam chiru cinemmala nadicha innum 2 to 3 dappa padam nadikanum.Aana namma thalaivaruku appadiya.Today they are taking a film for 120 crores..So he came to politics for his future.But for our thalaivar its not like that.He have many things to achieve in cinema itself.Apparam chiuvukku thodarnthu 7 padam odaama irunthappa kaasa thiruppi kodungannu yaarum ketkala,avangalaala ketka mudiyaathu,kaaranam bayam.Inga oru padam sariyaa pola naa avaruku ellam pochunu solraanga.Apparam avara ennathaan seiya solreenga.Avarum manishandhaane.

A very neatly composed article. Whether Thalaivar enters politics or not.. He should definitely start a proper social organisation n streamline in a proper way the energy of our fans who are dying to serve. In fact this way.. He can know who wants to serve people n who are around for position.
