Kamal Hassan announces ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye 2’

World renowned Tamil film star Kamal Hassan (Grand to friends) has announced that he will shortly start shooting for a sequel to his eighties hit bilingual film ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’.

Considering that ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’ ended with both Kamal Hassan and female lead Rati Agnihotri deciding to make like the Titanic and plunge into the ocean, presumably to live out the rest of their days together (Okay, minutes. Okay, seconds. Sheesh.), it seems an odd choice for a sequel. But Kamal was quick to clear the air for his fans. “Basically, what happens at the end of the first film is this - Vasu and Sapna don’t drown. They are rescued by an underwater civilization and placed in cryostasis chambers. The sequel is about what happens when they eventually wake up.”, said the actor, managing to elicit a reaction of stunned disbelief and sporadic spluttering from reporters present.

While he refused to divulge any more information about the story (probably because it doesn’t exist yet), Kamal did say that the film would give him a great opportunity to say the words ‘Czhzhyostasis Chambezhzh’ and ‘Undezhzhwatezhzhzh Civilizaizhzhtion’, in his world famous accent which makes every word with an ‘r’ sound vaguely like ‘Vazhapazham.’



One of the underwater denizens carefully considers if it's a good idea to wake Vasu and Sapna from cryo-sleep. It probably isn't.


“While the original was a tragic love story, Ek Duje Ke Liye 2 will be a special effects Sci-Fi extravaganza”, said Kamal, inadvertently giving credence to the theory that he felt the need to go one-up on long time rival Rajnikanth’s recent blockbuster, Endhiran.

Apparently, the film will feature spectacular “Hollywood special effects from Singapore”, underwater song sequences, and a digitally recreated, CG version of the late Poornam Viswanathan. In other news sure to delight fans, the film will not be directed by K.S.Ravikumar, and Kamal Hassan will be playing only three characters, none of which resemble a zombie version of Jay Leno. The film will have elements of comedy, romance, action and even horror - the last of these chiefly due to the presence of Rati Agnihotri as the heroine.

“It’s a family entertainer with mild sex and some light violence”, said the film’s producer, a man known simply as ‘Kannan’, effectively describing most Indian films. “You can watch with family”, he added with a slightly creepy grin, without specifying whether this would be appropriate, or even enjoyable.

Kamal also announced plans for the launch of another sequel, ‘Hey Ram 3’. Explaining the reason for skipping a number and going directly to 3, Kamal’s AD said “Kamal Saar yeppavumae konjam differenta think pannuvaaru. Avar Douglas Adams maadhiri rendu film vechchae trilogy pannuvaaru. Yeppadi?

Sathyanarayanan said...

For a humour piece, it felt too contrived. It is not my intention to pull you down, there is need to sharpen up. Indian writers use too many words to paint a supposed pun that it gets deflated. I wish you luck; sure you will get better with age, like wine!!!

Unknown said...

Hey, i read ur blog on yahoo - the tam-brahm thingy... lol...its so funny ! I being a bengali have to go through similar shit a lot of times and i wish my relos could have read my mind in those moments when they ask me y cant i be a bit more like "mintu, pintu , munai and babli and etc etc " ! Y know what? i couldnt find that article again so still thought of writing in to tell u dude..ur not alone...a lot of us still go through this.. I wish i could just say fo to these typical hypocrite losers...Maybe one day i shall.

'he felt the need to go one-up on long time rival Rajnikanth’s recent blockbuster, Endhiran'

What a load of BS man!!! It's amazing how Rajni's fans come up with crap like this! Looks like you feel the need to come up with this., not Kamal!
And yeah - you guessed right - I'm a die hard Kamal fan.

Anand Ramachandran's Evil Twin said...

@Sathyanarayanan : Umm . . okay.

@Nandini : I wish to take this opportunity to use an obtuse approach in order to bypass the norms of common politeness and social grace as well as simultaneously obfuscate the true meaning and perhaps cusion the rather sharp impact of the following phrase : You're an idiot.

The article is, as Sathyanarayanan pointed out - a poor attempt at humour. So just relax already.

[facepalm]

Others - thanks for reading Son of Bosey :)

[BoseyPutra] Heh, he's done the "r=>zh" thing in 'Unnaipol oruvan' brilliantly. "Mister I G Aazzhh Maaraazhzhzh."

This is probably the first time someone's been publicly called an idiot on this site. First!!

Awesome piece as usual. I read 'The Onion' regularly now because of you :)

One thing I always notice is that you react very strongly to readers who miss your humour.You also seem to dub down any attempt by people who give some genuine feedback as "You moron, I have the liberty to say anything in a satire".Somehow get a feel you can't take negative feedback in your stride!

PS- The article is brilliant. I am a huge fan of your humour.

Anand Ramachandran's Evil Twin said...

@anonymous - You think so? I believe there have been many occasions where I've agreed with readers who find the stuff unfunny.

I only react like that to people who take the stuff too 'seriously' or don't even recognize that it's satire, and get all riled up despite the very obvious disclaimer. That isn't feedback, it's stupidity, and I will continue to call it that.

raj said...

Hmm...have you outsourced writing on this site? Except for Grand, there is not much of Bosey touch in humour. Does writing for Cricinfo does that to people?

hari said...

I feel that your "news" reporting style is getting in the way of delivering the full impact.

Going through your older archives, I think the more outrageous your articles, the better the impact of the humour.

This article, while really funny, isn't talking about something outrageously impossible or utterly inane in a serious journalistic fashion.

But I still enjoyed reading it and I still think you have a lot more up your sleeve.

Anand Ramachandran said...

@raj - well played. You managed to take a swipe at me and at Cricinfo in one go. ;)

@hari - yeah, agree. some fatigue on the part of readers, and to be honest, myself. Have been trying to go back to 'area man' kind of stuff. Let's see what happens. Of course, I may have lost it, in which case it won't matter.

hari said...

Of course you didn't lose it.

Watch some Goundamani comedy for inspiration. It really helps I tell you. :-)

loved reading your post ''The IPL before the IPL. And Chennai fans object to Sivamani''

I am a Sri Lankan and I can identify with Madrasi humour ; familiarity with Tamil does help.Personally , I think guys from Tamil Nadu are hilarious and very talented.

Nice post and keep up the good work.
Tell me one thing , why isn't KamalHassan anointed as the best actor ever ? I am not trying to stir the pot here , but I believe Kamalhassan is more talented than Tendulkar

I absolutely love Kamal Hassan and I think he is the first among equals in the company of Larry Olivier,Pacino.DeNiro,Richard Burton,John Gielgud , Brando and Hopkins.

In Sri Lanka , both Kamal and Sivaji Gnesana are revered but srangely in India , they are not . Is it because they are Southerners ?

So , never make fun of my hero Kamalhassan.

If you do come to Colombo or London , lets have a chat
