Polladhavan is one of Tamil cinema’s most acclaimed films and requires no introduction. Vetri Maaran, an acclaimed filmmaker, made his directorial debut with the film. The Dhanush-starrer was released 15 years ago, and some of the cast and crew celebrated with a reunion yesterday.
Divya Spandana, who played the female lead in the film, took to Twitter to share photos from the event, which included herself, Dhanush, Vetri, music director GV Prakash, and producer Kathiresan, among others. She praised Dhanush, her “longest standing friend,” and expressed gratitude to Vetri for training her.
Divya also praised GV Prakash’s music in the film and expressed excitement for Polladhavan 2. Many people were taken aback, and moviegoers wondered if there would be a sequel to the film. Dhanush, too, took to social media to express his delight at the gathering.
He posted, “Loved catching up with polladhavan team and some of my best friends. A film that defined so many things for me. Balumahendra sir .. thank you (sic).” Fans of Dhanush and Vetri Maaran, who are waiting for Vada Chennai 2, are now elated and are eager to know if they have another surprise in store.
Polladhavan was released alongside Vijay’s Azhagiya Tamizh Magan and Suriya’s Vel, the two most anticipated Deepavali films in 2007, but emerged as the critics’ favourite. Velraj’s visuals and VT Vijayan’s editing received unanimous praise from moviegoers.
The film marked Dhanush and Vetri Maaran’s first collaboration, which went on to become one of Tamil cinema’s most successful pairings. Aadukalam, Vada Chennai, and Asuran followed in 2011, 2018, and 2019, respectively.
