That is until someone as ugly as Vijay stepped on screen. Vijay becoming a whistle'able star is worse than these yuppie english-speaking peter vittufying Madras people suddenly claiming to be Rajini fans who screech "thaleevar valgu" (must blame english news for intro'ing Rajinikanth to them). I really began to think those old carnatic music loving + "andha sivaji madhiri varadhu" perusus were correct.
Then came Ajith.
Ajith is a whole new low. Its not like he is ugly. Vijay is more ugly. But what has always baffled me is - why the hell do people like Ajith? What has he done? He is the Ajit Agarkar of Thamizh movies. His last hit was Vaali and then I think he had a semi-hit called Dheena. You can say 47 out of his 49 movies so far have been "sumaar". And I am willing to bet 30+ of them have been downright bad.
But he seems to have an awesome fan following. Who are these fans? Why do they like him? He dances worse than Rajinikanth. He emotes worser than Arya. Has a voice that would makes "thagara dappa" sound like M.S in comparison. But he has "fans". They call him 'thalai'
Seriously! what is the reason??
