Well, both the filmmakers AR Murugadoss and Atlee have been the ones who are privileged enough to alternatively direct actor Vijay and it has been happening over the past couple of years. However, if you’re guessing on what are this ‘Thalapathy Vijay Diwali dose’ and its connection with AR Murugadoss and Atlee.
During one of the interviews, AR Murugadoss had accepted the fault with ‘Kaththi’ that was released for Diwali. He said, “While I would openly accept that Thuppakki is a Diwali treat, Kaththi didn’t happen to be. With Vijay getting into the prison by end, it was actually not a happy ending, which significantly had its adverse impact for audiences on Diwali day.”
But guess what, Atlee perfectly corrected these mistakes in Mersal. Yet again, it was dual role, where one of them goes into the prison by end and somehow escapes with the magical power. This film released on same occasion of Diwali had a positive effect.
