Urimai Kural - Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s 50th film

The expectations are rising sky high for Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s 50th film produced by the veteran Sangili Murugan. After using an MGR title Vettaikaran, for his 49th film, Vijay is once again going for an old title from the legends library of films.

Sangili Murugan has gone and registered the old MGR film title Urimai Kural for Vijay‘s Golden Jubilee film. The1974 film directed by the late C.V Sridhar, had MGR, Latha and Nambiar in the lead with music by M.S Viswanathan.

Vijay’s preference for old MGR titles is well known, as it gives him a reach and connects with MGR fans. The MGR legacy is still alive, as the 2009 Lok Sabha elections are proving.

For Vijay, a star with political ambitions and well knit fan base, Urimai Kural has tremendous title value and is a fitting name for his 50th film. Though Kollywood grapevine has it that Perarasu is the chosen one to direct the film based on a script written by S.P Rajkumar, sources close to the development say nothing has been firmed up.
