Thala 59 is a fresh start for Thala and his fans after 4 back to back films with SiruthaI Siva. H. Vinoth is someone who has proven himself with Sathuranga Vettai and Theeran Adhigaram Ondru. It will be interesting to see what he does with Thala. Thala 59 is produced by Boney Kapoor who is late Sridevi’s husband. Their production company Bayview Production will produce both Thala 59 and Thala 60. It must be noted that Ajith reprised Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Sridevi’s English Vinglish. He promised a film for Sridevi during the shoot of English Vinglish and now he is fulfilling that promise by acting in a film produced by Boney Kapoor.
It must be noted that Ajith has reprised Amitabh Bachchan in Billa which was a remake of Amitabh’s Don. He has done English Vinglish. Now Thala 59 is also a remake of Pink which was an Amitabh film. Shraddha Srinath who was the heroine for Vikram Vedha now reprises Taapsee’s role in Pink. It is a bold role in which the victim fights back against the oppressor. She was fabulous opposite Madhavan in Vikram Vedha. Now she comes back to Tamil with Thala 59 in a role tailor made for her. Vidya Balan plays the other heroine in a guest role. Popular Anchor Rangaraj Pandey and director Aadhik Ravihandran also play vital roles. After mass films with Siruthai Siva Ajith returns to please the class audience with this much needed subject.
It must be noted that the film is produced by late Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor. Sridevi is one of the finest actress this country has ever seen. The film is a result of Ajith’s promise to Sridevi. Sources say that Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor might make a cameo appearance in the movie. A promise to a mother, produced by the father and the daughter to act in a cameo. This is great indeed. It must be noted that Vidya Balan already plays a cameo as Ajith’s wife in the movie.
