Inspired from Sound Of Music, SP Muthuraman made some very good changes suiting Thalaivar charisma Remember 1989 was a awesome where thalaivar rocked the box office with 3 silver jubliees: Rajathi Raja (189 days), Raja Chinna Roja (178 days) & Mappillai (198 days).
First Indian movie to use animation which was done brilliantly.
This was Thalaivar’s 7th successive blockbuster with AVM Combination.
AVM Saravanan had seen Robert Zemecki’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit which had animation with live action. SPM cautioned Saravanan on the cost, but he didn’t bother as he wanted AVM to be the first to do it and had immense faith on Rajini’s market to recover the investment.
Raja Chinna Roja is famous for the song Superstar Yaarunnu Kettal Chinna Kozhandayum Sollum. During this time, Simbu sang a song & enacted in T. Rajendran’s Samsara Sangeetham, signing I am a little star, aaven naan superstar! Today you know where Thalaivar & Simbu are ?
