Winner is a special film. On the surface it does look like an ordinary comedy film. But it is much more than that. It is a great example on how to bring the best out of an extraordinary artist
Kaipulla isn’t just another character. It is a character which will instantly lift us up when we are having a bad day. The walk , the voice modulation and the body language are all in sync. We forget Vadivelu. Kaipulla defined Vadivelu. From that point onwards there is no looking back. Vadivelu in a Sundar C film was a match made in heaven.
Sundar C has this knack of elevating simple stories with extraordinary comedy. Winner is no different. Prasanth for his part is happy playing second fiddle knowing very well that it is the humour that will elevate the film to a whole new level. Kiran is gorgeous and Yuvan’s music is as beautiful as always.
Kaipulla can be a meme. He can be a clip in a comedy channel. He can be a mood lifter on a bad day. Today Vadivelu is a cultural icon and Kaipulla has a large part to play in Vadivelu’s rise. Every dialogue from winner is a part and parcel of our daily lives. That is the impact of winner.
