Chennai: Dhanush’s VIP 2 is titled as Thanga Magan and the film makers have released first look poster, this is the fourth time he is using Rajinikanth’s movie name.

Dhanush after success of ‘Maari’ has acted in the movie titled ‘VIP 2’. The movie was titled as ‘VIP 2’ as the same team has joined hands once again. Cinematographer turned Director Velraj has crafted the movie. Samantha and Amy Jackson are the two female leads. In this case, the movie title was released as ‘Thanga Magan’ along with a First Look poster. This is the fourth time Dhanush has used Rajini’s title and let’s see a look on the early times.


Rajini acted with same title ‘Pollathavan’ in the year 1980. Muktha V.Srinivasan directed the project and it was a stupendous success. Dhanush did a movie with same title in 2007. Vetrimaaran directed the movie. The movie was also a success. As a sentiment, Dhanush started to keep Rajini movie titles.


In 1985, Rajini acted in the movie ‘Padikathavan’ along with Sivaji Ganesan and it was a huge success. Going by success of ‘Pollathavan’, Dhanush used the same title in 2009 and the movie was directed by Sooraj. But this time the movie was a failure at Box-office.


Rajini acted in this movie where Chiranjeevi did a cameo role. The movie featured Sri Vidya in pivotal role. The remake was done in 2011 with Hansika in female lead and Manisha filling shoes of Sri Vidya. The movie was a colossal flop.

Thanga Magan

Rajini already used the title ‘Thangamagan’ in 1980 and A.Jagannathan directed the original. But this time we have to keep our fingers crossed to know whether this project will be a success or failure.
