I am a diehard Vijay fan from Sri Lanka. Every day I go through the same ordeal...everywhere. "Why do you like him...he can't act...he does not have any style". Well now I'm going to prove to them that Vijay isn't what they think him to be...he is more than that.
I was an average kid, just like everyone else. At that time I was a fan of The Superstar. It was when I went on a trip to Singapore that everything changed. It was raining and my dad decided to watch a movie. At that time the only movies running were Manmadhan and Ghilli. As my family was not a fan of Simbu we decided to watch Ghilli. It was a 7:30 show and we had to wait outside in a long queue but fortunately we got in. when I went in I was amazed to see less Indians but more people from other countries. They were all there, Chinese, French, Indonesian...you name it. I really couldn't believe that they had come all the way just to see a Tamil movie. The movie began and when the words "Ilayathalapathy Vijay" came on screen, there was a huge response from the audience. My dad asked a Tamil chap sitting next to us why so many people of different ethnic groups were watching a movie that they didn't understand. It was his reply that enlightened me. "No sir, they don't really care about the language. It's what they see on screen that matters. Vijay is different from others. From his expression you can grasp what he's conveying to us. His older films were big hits here." It was from that I changed my mind.
Since then I would always wait in a queue, join in with all the other fans singing and cheering just to see Vijay's films on the first day. So far I have been very successful. My family has been of great support to me in this. They always accompany to see his films. Although the years 2008-2010 haven't been favorable to him, he didn't give up. He kept on making films and he always appreciated our comments. It was the same with the great MGR. There was a period during his career where many of his films were flops but yet he didn't give up and after that he was the victor and still to this day he holds a small place in all our hearts. It was as Vijay said in "Thirumalai" "Life is like a circle...we can go up or come down" When you look at all this you still wonder why many people debate who is better. It is because they are jealous. It is no other reason. Vijay has just come up and has many more steps to go. All his haters want him to come back down and they even discourage us from being his fans. I just want to ask one question to them. "What do you find wrong in Vijay?" Every man is not perfect and every man is not the same, we should remember this. I mean no disrespect to anyone but I want them to know that every actor has different unique abilities. Vijay is yet to reach many heights but he is taking his time, choosing good scripts and working with different genres of films
I hope that after this you see Vijay as a person who is here to entertain us and as a person who wants to keep us smiling and happy.
