Time pass

How much should a man have achieved if he could say "I am very talented. And thats why I am very popular". Who can actually make such tall claims - I was thinking. Maybe Don Bradman, Federer. But if they had said that, we wouldn't have respected them as much I guess. But this man re-christened Vijaya T. Rajendar, doesn't really care much for political correctness or modesty. Watch him play with english words in a movie clip. I don't remember the name of the movie though. Thanks Bubby for the link. And you are welcome people.:-)

Thought will let you know I am T.R.'s no.1 fan. He is actually modest in that interview, he is even better than what he says in that interview. Hope u saw Veerasamy movie, if not I suggest you to watch it so you will become his fan too and realise what I am talking about.

I had posted an interview of Bruce Lee but Vijaya T R beats him hands down. But I think his overconfidence is kinda inspirational and motivational. I saw him on SUNTV's Asatha Povadhu Yaaru. I was impressed. Barring his looks, he is more talented than many Kollywood STARS.

T. Rajendar reminds me of a manager I used to have....

Getting involved with all activities in the project and screwing up big time in all.

Truly a multi-faceted genius :P

he is uninhibited while he speaks. that comes across as olaral to you because it is new to you.
Once in an interview they asked : How wd you like to rate yourself from 1-10?
I answered 8.
My friend answered - is there a 11?
They selected my friend. He also had the credentials to back his claim but believe me, it works. I cannot do that but it does work in most places.

as Apam Napat said, he is talented in a way...his mimicry was good..and he was defly better than Madhan Bob (and his inane observations)..
irunthalum at times u feel he is really off his mind...god save the guys who interview him..but he does one thing really well...MAKE US LAUGH..which way we never mind!

I don't know about his public interactions before 2000. But judging by the confidence and all round work he put in his debut film, I can gauge that the man 'had' talent. Regardless of personality, his films were hits suiting the 80's cinegoers and his musical talent was impressive. His knowledge of Tamil and his song lyrics are amazing. I am yet to see even professional poets/lyricist emulate some of his best lyrics.

But I think every genius has a success point, after which they start to lose that shine. TR has long ago lost his best qualities in his quest to jump on this generations tastes. Like him, even big directors like KB and BR have lost their touch.

I can't stand the man onscreen and would rather not be giving some support to him, but it is sad to see his current form. I don't know what is worse, celebrities who show too much modesty or those that don't have any:-)

pistu, its one thing to say TRajendar is not all that bad but quite anotehr to claim to be his No.1 fan. Finally, I am acquainted to someone who likes him.:-)
Sriram, edhu thaangala? Post or the link?
kittu mama, is this clip really that old? BTW, can you snap a finger and sing and also write blog simultaneously?
Rajesh, on a comparative basis I am sure he has lot of talent.
oracle, lol. Sudddenly no one is talking about his "dei, varen da naanu, andha ponnu peru baanu" kind of dialogues. He may have patented it.
Me, and what do you think about his views on his son? "Eendra pozhudhinum..." in the context of his playboy son.
MT, I cant forget that song and also "ponnaana manase poovana manase..."
AP, will check that link. Thanks.
Rajesh, not everybody likes that 11 answer. Your friend got lucky, I should say.
Me, true. Did you listen to the explanation for the name change. He spoke for long but never answered that question.
Ajay, thats true. Entertainment value is very high.
Jay, do you call yourself a No.1 fan too?
Kajan, agree with some of your points. He wasnt definitely great to be talked in the same breath as KB or BR. But this man was definitely better than what he is today.
Bubby, never heard that one.
