    Our movies are built around a number of sentiments that appeals to us at times -but they go on an overdrive to the extent of craziness and mindlessness....
    Let us discuss some of the oft hyped sentiments...

    1.Thaali sentiment-Bring this winner in and the B/C center theaters are filled with thaaikulams and cash pours in.
    2.Mother sentiment-so many heroes have managed to become Chief Ministers using this one.
    3.Opening dialogue sentiment-Aathaa naan paas aiyeten or Vetri ..Vetri... opening dialogue for the movie spells sentimental luck and success.
    4.Sidie sentiment-If a movie featuring a particular sidie with the hero is a hit he is invited to tag along with the hero in future movies too-he is the lucky mascot.
    These are just a few of the oft repeated sentinents which ensure box office hits!
    Let us discuss these and more ...

    SPB is the lucky mascot for Rajini. Thali sentiment is running live in the Family forum. :biglaugh

    Mother, husband, Older Brother, Younger Sister, Older Sister, and all of her younger siblings are well tested sentiments.

    Janani,

    I left out many sentiments so that we can pool the various sentiment that rules cinema:spin

    Heroes or heroines who give a flop are antisentiment material -noproducer touches them with a barge pole!

    Some fight their way through and make it to the top after years of struggle like Vikram.

    And Ilayaraja singing the title song was supposed to guarantee a hit some years back.

    I didnt know abt this sentiment on Shankar Mahadavan.:hide:

    Rajini's Baba was a failure. In this movie the opening song was sung by Shankar Mahadevan. It was one of the reasons attributed to the failure.

    Sunitha,

    Nice observation.

    Even Mottai sentiment is a surefire way to success.

    Eg. Satyaraj-Nooravadhu naal

    Sarathkumar-Suryan

    Surya-Ghajini

    Rajini-Shivaji

    but Kamals mottai in Alavandhar made the producer mottai:biglaugh

    Really?

    But Baba had such a lousy story that even 1000lucky sentiments cant make it run.:rant

    Rajini had a little boy acting in his movies to assure success.

    Dont know his name -the boy acted in Kuluvalile song and OOOkicku erudhe ...song too.

    Ramya Krishnan. after the movie Padayappa. was considered to be lucky for Rajini, so she was roped in for the one minute appearance in 'Baba'!

    Radhika's tele-serials will always begin in a temple with an elephant comming out. Athu avalodiya sentiment.
