I was browsing through YouTube videos and I stumbled upon this.
Please watch both videos before proceeding to read this article. If you are a hardcore fan of a certain Kollywood hero, YOU MUST READ THIS, then think if you still have some sensible brain cells left in your skull that isn’t imbibed with you hardcore fan cretinism. Okay, I shall use the simplest English because I’m not here to show my English writing talent. I am trying to spread awareness to Malaysian Indian hardcore fan so that they don’t end up in the abyss of ignorance and misguided priorities.
Hardcore fan of a Kollywood hero – do you even get how devolving that is?
One hardcore fan of a Kollywood hero I know wrote in his Facebook status, that if his parents tell him to stop being a hardcore fan of the hero, he’ll leave the house. I asked, “Sapaduku enna pannuve?” and avan etho samalichan. I won’t say Vijay/Ajith/Rajini/Kamal/Simbu/Dhanush etc because some idiots will come up and say, “Don’t talk bad about one hero because you are a fan of another hero.” Vadikittena mutta pasanga who don’t know the meaning of being neutral and sensible.
Many hardcore fans put their hero first, rest next, even parents and family. When I asked them why are they so crazy about their Kollywood hero they say, “Makkale santhosa padutharuthu evelo punniyam.” Un amma appa enna paavam senjanggalo unggele maari pullinggele pekke. You can’t make your parents happy, make them feel giving birth to you is punniyam, you want to talk about your hero doing punniyam by entertaining you. The hero is entertaining you free of charge? You pay GST to watch your Thalaiva on screen la bodoh. It’s business. Your Thalaiva rakes millions of dollars at your expense. And you waste your money by doing pal abshishegam, thara thappe, firecrackers and other stupid stunts when your Thalaiva’s film is released. If ask, you will say, en panam, en kaasu, en dabbu. Fine, but there’s something called priority. If you treat your parents like that on their birthdays or Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, that’s money well spent. Because, your parents have done so much for you. What did your hero do for you for you to planta him the way Kash Villainz planta puseran Geethanjali G? And then one dude be like, “Amma appa than first, Thalaivar sollirkar.” Yean da pannade, can’t you see how your parents toil to provide for you? You need an actor to tell you that parents come first? Suyama sinthikke teriyathu? And, stopping smoking because your Thalaiva did and peethikran about it like you got Nobel Prize. You can’t stop smoking for the sake of your health, for the sake those who love you and depend on you or at warnings from qualified medical doctors but for the sake of your Thalaivar. You think the hero will come over to your house to fete you because you stopped smoking? Macam bodoh tak?
You fight for your hero online as his hardcore fan the way you don’t fight for your rights in this country. You know every movie release date, audio launch date, what what films your hero acted from day 1, how many of it got nominated for Vijay Awards, National Award, Film Fare award, how many movies flopped, how many average grosser and how many box office, lottu losukku the way you don’t know our economy condition, 1MDB, ringgit value, how Forex works, how banks roll money, statistics on socioeconomy change, Kevin Morais’ murder, Al Jazeera Altantuya divulge, Australia New Pm, Singapore GE, Workers Party, etc. You compete to troll your rival hero hardcore fan troll of your hero the way don’t compete at education and job. Anyone kaari thupperan you you don’t get angry but if anyone trolls your goddamn hero you get angry until you publicly issue death threats. And, you’re proud to be so when it only makes you look like a complete fool with no self respect who’s got screwed up priorities.
You say you do good things under the name of your Thalaivar, as his hardcore fan. Why can’t you do the good thing under your own name? Why let someone else take the credit when you’re the one doing charity.? Ooran veetu neiye, en pondati kaiye kathe le apdi enna perume.? Lembu punya susu, sapi dapat nama. Do good under your own name. If you do good as your hero’s hardcore fan, the hero isn’t going to get all emotional and give you a big wet kiss. No Kollywood hero is doing charity under the name of his fans – they do it under their own name. So it makes you look incredibly stupid when you do charity as a hardcore fan of your hero. Periya manasuku oru alavu irukku.
Set a limit to your hardcore fan thingy – don’t be a hardcore fan, be a sensible fan
Know that your hero is using you to get richer while you get poorer. Malaysian Indian hardcore fan don’t pray, take palkudam or kavadi so that their Thalaiva’s movie runs well but they do go for the same film of their hero multiple times on big screen to make sure that the film is a success while complaining that GST is burdening. Thalaivar ode padam theater le pakra maari irukkuma.. I’m like, “Unna maari muttal irukkuma?” Your hero is making millions la bodoh. You are barely making ends meet but anything for your Thalaiva.
Also, rich and educated Malaysian Indians don’t indulge in this hardcore fan thingy as said in the video. Because they know, instead of wasting so much energy and time on such useless hardcore fan Kollywood hero conduct, they know they can use their energy and time to develop themselves and make themselves richer rather than making someone who don’t even know they exist richer.
You can take the heroes as an inspiration, Rajini’s from rags to riches story is really inspiring. Apply that kind of dedication in education and career and soar. Ajith is a master of many trades – similarly, you can learn multiple skills. I feel, that’s the ultimate respect you can give to your hero as their hardcore fan, not by pouring milk on their cutouts, fighting with rival fans, calling each other Vijay stupid fans, Ajith idiot fans and other stupid stuff. Your hero saying ‘En anbana rasigargale, en nenjil kudi irukkum rasiga perumakale is as rhetoric as Najib’s Nambikei slogan.
Wake up, else, what showed in the video that’s happening in Tamil Nadu, India will happen here and other races will start calling us “India gila filem.” Theveyah? It is not the fault of the profession, it’s the fault of the perception.
You know a community is doomed when a good chunk of the community hail actors as Thalaiva (leader) rather than educationists, scientists and activists.
