Simbu is one of Kollywood’s most-discussed actors, and often not in a complimentary manner. But that has in no way stoppped him from being himself! He is a guy brimming with ideas and an obvious, urgent need to prove himself in the industry. His recent movies were not box office hits, but the music rocked. Simbu seems to have the knack of getting the perfect tunes from his composers, especially Yuvanshankar Raja. After a superb Silambattam music album, everyone thought the two would never part ways, but when Dharan landed the opportunity to score music for the Simbu starrer Poda Podi, everyone were rather suprised.
But the word now is that for some undisclosed reason, Yuvan has dropped Dharan for Yuvan. Dharan has scored some laudable tunes in movies such as Sivi, Parijatham, etc. Now that Yuvan and Simbu are working together again, you can expect an explosive album in the offing! However, what Simbu needs now is more than good music. He needs a movie that will showcase his skills as an actor. We know he can dance, sing and direct, and we have often seen glimpses of the good actor he is.
Lets hope that Poda Podi in the direction Vignesh Shiva, will pave the way for that. Failing which, Gautam Menon’s Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya is sure to serve that purpose.
