Pasanga 2 May Not Have Got This Much Attention

Kaththi - to millions of Vijay fans, the movie is a blockbuster but to a regular movie buff like me the movie was the evolution of "Actor" Vijay after a short gap. I can't say which statement would be right to justify.
 
1. Vijay is comfortable doing the usual commercial scripts.
2. Vijay fans expect Vijay to do commercial movies only.
 
But to break all the cliches, A.R.Murugadoss mixed elements of Vijay and social elements which a script like Kaththi demanded in the right composition at right levels. I remember reading a review, "Kaththi can be classified into two, 1. Vijay's elements which are like sweet honey and 2. ARM's script which is like a malodorous medicine. Having them together gives a right treatment for the disease."
 
There were few critics asking ARM, "What is the need of a heroine ?" in a script like Kaththi. The director’s opinion was "Without a female lead in Kaththi, the movie would for sure look dry and there would be questions the other way around"
 
Jeevanandham was a character which was underplayed by Vijay. The director even in an interview said he was hesitant to ask Vijay sir to wear a brief alone in the police station scene. But Vijay sir was open to, what the character and the script demanded. He also explained the reasons for the on-screen character names, Jeevanandham was named after the popular communist leader and Kathiresan is "Kathiruku Arasan" where Kathir means "Ner Kathir".
