Tamil Cinema has been a fountainhead for political ideologies
and revolutionary thoughts. That it has managed to seamlessly
weave social purpose with popular entertainment is its
Rajinikanth is a phenomenon non-pareil in Tamil Cinema. He
is fascinating as much with his striking' style' movements, as
with his deeply insightful 'punch' lines. That he effortlessly
combines mass appeal with sincerity of purpose is his
strength. Rajinikanth's off-screen life and conduct have vastly
added credibility to his on-screen image and character. It is no
wonder that Rajini is synonymous with his punch lines laden
The authors, P C Balasubramanian and Raja Krishnamuoorthy
should be warmly complimented for bringing out Rajini's
pearls and showcasing them for their effulgence. The authors
are not uninformed fans given to irrational idolatry. One is
a successful entrepreneur and the other a well respected
consultant. That both have found Rajini's signature statements
deeply relevant to management practices and indeed life at
large, is testimony to the true value of Rajini's punch lines. It is
also telling proof of Rajini's appeal to people across all walks
The annotation is lucid and friendly, yet deep and thoughtful
just like a Rajinikanth Movie!
Once in a way, in history, there appears someone
whose message provides hope, lights a spark and
energizes all of mankind. It is never quite the message
itself but who said it, how and when, that makes the
message almost historical. Often these messages are
so simple and earthy, yet coming rom the personality,
in its unique context, the message grows alive and
powerful. It acquires significance, wide acceptance
and gets etched in memory.
Rajini's punch dialogues made such an impact
on me that it has become my mission to make a
book out of them.
I have grown up watching Rajinikanth films-
nothing new in that, most of my generation did.
But unlike many adoscelent attractions that you
grow out of as you mature, I could not grow out
of his punch lines! As I grew older and, hopefully,
wiser, I soaked deeper in the impact they made
on me and a whole lot of others!
From a coolie to a CEO, from a small time
entrepreneur to a big business man, from an
urchin to a post-graduate, from a maid to an
activist, from lovers to siblings, from spouses to
in-laws, Ihave seen these 'Rajini dialogues' evoke
deep resonance and often a glint in the eye, a nod
of acceptance and a smile of acknowledgement. The statements simply touched them and stayed somewhere
I call these 'Value Statements' as only such statements travel
a long distance, remain in the minds and hearts of the people
for generations and get quoted or used in their conversations.
I have experienced people from different walks of life - across
communities, class, background-quote his punch lines at
work or at home or at social gatherings to communicate their
views in a simple but powerful manner! And most of the times
it is found relevant, is enjoyed and is well accepted! This is why
perhaps it has become a Rajinikanth tradition that millions
of his fans (and many others who might have not seen that
particular film for that matter...) look forward to these Value
Statements from the Super Star-not just in his movies, but
even in a public forum where he is delivering a speech!
Hence I recognize that, in their mass appeal, in their
entertainment potential, in their power to educate and
awaken society and impact the minds of millions, these value
statements are waiting to be leveraged. That essentially is the
purpose of this book!
In a way, Rajini's own life is his message. I call it a 'Pilgrim's
Progress Through Life'-one of hardships, struggle, dreams,
destiny, superstardom, learning, responsibility, resisting
temptations, simplicity, utmost humility and being a role
model for generations of people. And in the process, he has
woven such magic in the minds of millions that his mere
utterances have turned into' gems of wisdom'.
I salute this living enigma in reverence and admiration! And
this book is an effort to chronicle a part of his contribution in to an
interesting capsule and leave it behind for posterity ... to enjoy, to
cherish, to learn from and to celebrate life!
