Thalaivar 171: Lokesh Kanagaraj has grown into a big director in a short span of time with Mahanagaram, Kathi, Master, Vikram. That and the making of Vikram created a fan base for him. Some people started saying Loki Universe because Lokesh was showing a new world. Lokesh Kanagaraj also popularly known as LCU in English.
His next film Leo with Vijay created expectations like no other film in Tamil cinema so far. Leo’s film was much discussed on social media and in the media. This created huge hype for the film.
At the same time, it turned out to be a negative for the film. Because the film did not satisfy the fans. The screenplay is not that interesting especially in the second part of the film. Lokesh Kanagaraj also agreed with this as many people have expressed this opinion.
Also, it was announced that Rajinikanth’s 171st film will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj and produced by Sunpictures. This made Rajini fans very happy. Because, if Rajini acts in Lokesh’s direction, everyone expected it to be on another level.
Rajini started busy acting as Lal Salam and Vedatiyan after finishing Orupakm Jailer. Lal Salam movie will release on 9th. The shooting of Vadeyan is likely to be completed in a month. After the completion of this film, Rajini will act in the direction of Lokesh Kanagaraj.
In this case, Rajini is going to de-age the way he did in the film Thalapathy in the film Pedeshwar 171. That was the movie where Rajini was very handsome and young. Lokesh likes that look so he is going to show Rajini in that look. This is definitely a treat for Rajini fans.
