The Tamil megastar, the Thalaiva Rajinikanth’s fans will get the opportunity very soon to see him walk down the stairs in his landmark movie Baasha yet again on the silver screen. No, it is not a sequel that is in the making but a digitally printed remastered version of the movie that is slated to hit the theaters soon.
The makers of the blockbuster released a trailer of the digitally printed up version and it shows two iconic scenes from Rajinikanth’s movie – the walking down the stairs sequence and him punching out the dialogue, “Naan oru thadava sonna, nooru thadava sonna madhiri (If I said it once, it means I have said it a hundred times).”
Visually and graphically, the new theatrical trailer plays with more colors as we see an orange tinge of Thalaiva while he walks down to the stairs. This makes his strong presence comes across as supernatural power or larger-than-life in tune with his image among the minds of thousands of his followers. Also, the sound amplifies the impact of his famous dialogue as it is sure to echo out across the theaters.
The producer of the actual movie, R. M. Veerappan, had planned to release the digital version on Rajinikanth’s birthday on 12 December 2016. However, that did not work out as the Tamil superstar has requested his fans not to celebrate his birthday as the nation loses the recent demises of Jayalalithathaa and Cho Ramaswamy.
Baasha, directed by Suresh Krissna, revolved around an auto rickshaw driver-cum-gangster who returns to his underworld life, after a long dry spell, in order to revenge of the attack on his sister.
Speaking about the digitally remastered trailer, Thangaraj Veerappan was quoted by The Hindu as stating, “A team from Prasad EFX is working on the visual effects and A.S. Laxmi Narayanan, who has worked on the sound system for a host of movies, including the recent “I” and ’24,’ is handling the sound department.”
Baasha was an intensively and hugely popular film and was also dubbed in Telugu and remade in Kannada and Hindi. The Hindi version was remade as a digital version and subsequently released in 2012. It was remade in Bengali as Guru, with the male lead Mithun Chakraborty. Now, the Tamil fans also eagerly await the digital version of Baasha which remains arguably Rajinikanth’s most popular movie till now.
