The Tamil science fiction fantasy film Enthiran released in the year 2010 took Tamil cinema a step higher in the world cinema. The big budget film had our Superstar Rajinikanth portraying the roles of scientist Vaseegaran as well as the Chitti, a robot. The film had former Miss World Aishwarya Rai essaying the female lead while Danny Denzongpa was seen in a negative shade. Actor Santhanam and Karunas were seen in a comical role. Though the film had mixed reviews among the Tamil audience and critics the film kept the box office rolling smashing every collection records of the actor.
Now, we have some interesting news about a connection between Avengers and our Super star’s Enthiran. Ever since the first movie in the franchise of Avengers hit the screens, fans all over the world have been in craze for the Marvel Universe’s film. The Avengers – Infinity War that hit the screens worldwide in the year 2018 smashed every box office record and went on to become one of the biggest grosser films ever. The ending of the action fantasy film set a great platform for the upcoming Avengers – Endgame.
The actors and technicians who worked in the film are quite busy in promoting the film all over the world. The film is set to be released in India on 26th of this month. Currently, the director Joe Russo is busy promoting his film in India. On a public gathering while speaking about the film the directed revealed that a scene from the movie Enthiran inspired Joss Whedon to build the climax of Avengers – Age of Ultron.
Speaking further on it the director stated, “A scene from the Tamil movie Enthiran under the directorial of Shankar had small robots getting assembled together in the climax to evolve in to a giant snake and director Joss Whedon had used a similar kind of a scene in our previous movie Avengers – Age of Ultron to build the climax of the film. We shot a similar scene for our movie where many small Ultrons combine together to evolve in to a giant Ultron and that was supposed to be a part of the climax. But unfortunately the film had a long running time so our editing team had to cut down the scene to reduce the running time.”
We are quite used to our directors taking inspiration from the Hollywood cinema to build their film but the fact that an Indian movie has provided inspiration to develop a scene in Hollywood cinema is quite refreshing and has made us all very proud. A big thank you to director Shankar and his team, who have set the standards of Indian cinema a step higher with the assistance of our Thalaivaa, Rajinikanth.
