Not literally, but seeing the teaser of Superstar’s latest film, we did find a connection to his old film that was shelved due to financial issues in 2007
After watching the first teaser of Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie, Kochadaiiyaan, we were mighty impressed with the first teaser, especially since it is high on visual effects!
Much before Kochadaiiyaan happened, Soundarya R Ashwin, the Superstar’s younger daughter has been planning to immortalise the South Superstar using animation. Way back in 2007, Soundarya had planned Sultan the Warrior with Rajini, which was later shelved due to financial hurdles. The film was in production for several months and was a tie up between Soundarya’s Ocher Studios and Warner. The trailer of this film had created a lot of hoopla among Rajini fans. After Sultan the Warrior was dropped, Soundarya announced another film called Rana on similar lines. On the mahurat of Rana, Rajinikanth fell ill due to which the film could never see the day of light.
When we saw the trailer of Kochadaiiyaan, we could help but compare it to the trailer of Sultan the Warrior. When we looked at it carefully, we found quite a few similarities as our in-house expert pointed out. The sword used by Rajini used in Kochadaiiyaan is similar to the one used in Sultan the Warrior. In the latest version, though the character of Rajinikanth is polished one, does look like his character in the 2007 flick. The background used and the palace used in Rajini’s latest film teaser has striking similarities with the 2007 flick. Though there seems to be some connection between the two, the teaser of Kochadaiiyaan is nothing less than mind-blowing!
Have a look at both the videos, and tell us what you feel BollywoodLifers.
