Superstar Project

Superstar Project

Inspired by the wonderful blog My Year of Prakash Raj, my ultimate quest in the Superstar Project is to watch the whole Superstar Rajinikanth filmography and report in this blog after watching each movie.

I have combined a list which contains all the movies from the “Filmography” section of Naman Ramachandran’s book Rajinikanth – The Definitive Biography as well as a couple of movies that are missing from Ramachandran’s book (such as guest roles from the database at Rajinifans.com).

The project will most certainly take a very long time and just finding some of the movies will probably be quite challenging. At first I will, as much as possible, prefer movies that have subtitles but later on they might become more uncommon because of their poor availability. I also prefer to watch movies in their original language but I can make an exception if a movie can’t be found in that language or if only a non-original language has subtitles.

However, the Superstar Project won’t be the main purpose of the blog and I’ll continue to write about other things as well.

Title Card Gallery

While doing the Super Star Project, I’ll also try to take screenshots of the Rajini moments in opening credits, as it would be interesting to see when exactly they evolve into the bombastic spectacles that they are today. These are his title cards from the movies that I’ve watched so far in the project.
