Teachers across the State are feeling embarrassed by ace comedian Santhanam’s dialogues in Suriya’s Singam-2 which hit the screens yesterday all over the State and abroad. Santhanam and Vivek share the comic space in the action-packed film which has Suriya, Anushka and Hansika.
The film is comparatively doing well and at this pace would be a sure hit film. While the audience are entertained, there is one section that feels being embarrassed by the film, Its the the teaching fraternity in the State, who have been put in bad light through Santhanam comedies.
Santhanam, who is believed by many to be aping comedian Goundamani’s dialogue-delivery but has never acknowledged it openly, utters a dialogue in the film while talking about teachers. It goes like this: ‘English teacher irukkale ava grammar sollithara varala illa glamour sollitharavala, Ava jacketla pinnala ozone otta vizhuntha marithiri ivalavu periya ottai le, Thaguthi illadhavan Tamil vathiyaar, arrivae illadhavan Ariviyal vathiyar, Buddhi illadhavan Puviyiyal vathiyaar… ’.
Now the team is only worried that this controversy does not take a new shape in mean of threats or protest.
