Thalaivar rules over millions of hearts and needs no introduction. His acting scale has given a new dimension to the Indian film industry. Thalaivar epitomises the perfect balance between the mass appeal and the artistic expression – something that all the filmmakers would do well to attempt in the future.” – M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice-President of India.
