Dhanush Actor Pictures Interview Biography

Dhanush (born Prabhu Kastoorirajan on 1978-02-25, is an Indian film actor. His filmography includes Pudhupettai, Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam, and Kadhal Kondein.


Early work, 2002 - 2005
Following his uprasing as the son of a noted director, Dhanush debuted under the direction of his father Kasthuri Raja in the Thulluvadho Ilamai with fellow debutant, Sherin. Upon release, the film didn't fetched up big reviews, following the story of his character, Mahesh, and how his friends help him elope with his girlfriend. The film, despite taking a poor opening, went on to gain a cult status, elevating Dhanush's market in Tamil cinema.

Dhanush's breakthrough film was in his brother Selvaraghavan's debut directorial venture, Kadhal Kondein. The film portrayed Dhanush as a mentally-disturbed youth, Vinodh, who yearned for the love of his friend, played by Sonia Agarwal, eventually turning possessive over her. Upon release, the film won critical acclaim and became a commercial success, capitulating Dhanush into the main foray of actors in Tami films. Furthermore his next film, release dlater in 2003, Thiruda Thirudi became a blockbuster. Appearing in his first hero-centric film, Dhanush earned rave reviews for his portrayal opposite debutant Chaya Singh. Furthermore, his performance in the song, Manmadha Rasa, was appreciated, subsequently earning the song cult status.

Despite achieving three profitable ventures in his first three films, Dhanush's following films all failed, damaging his status as a lead actor in Tamil films. The first failure was his first action film, Pudhukottaiyilirundhu Saravanan opposite Aparna Pillai, which despite receiving a Telugu dubbing, was lamented by critics as a poor film. This was followed by Ramana's Sullan, which received negative reviews cliaming that Dhanush could not fit into the mould of an action hero due to his slim physique. Sullan However the film, which had Sindhu Tolani as the lead heroine, was dubbed into Telugu as Maurya. The third and most-criticized failure was Dreams alongside two new heroines. The film directed by his father, like their previous venture was released with reviews claiming it was another adult film. This hampered the film's progress, and the film remains Dhanush's biggest failure til date.

In 2005, Dhanush had two average grossers in Devathaiyai Kanden and the much-hyped Balu Mahendra's Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam. The former was a commercial venture, directed by debutant Boopathy Pandian, which despite receiving average reviews on Dhanush's performance, was dubbed into Telugu. Balu Mahendra's film featured Dhanush opposite Priyamani in an off-beat venture. The film received rave reviews but failed to succeed at the box-office.

Recent work, 2006 - present

Dhanush's biggest film, in terms of budget, til date is the 2006-released Pudhupettai. The film, re-united him with his brother after their successful previous venture, pitted him against two prominent heroines Sneha and Sonia Agarwal. The movie is about the rites of passages in the life and times of an everyday-man who ends up as a dreaded gangster, 'Kokki' Kumar, the role portrayed by Dhanush. A critic praised Dhanush's relaistic portrayal, claiming that "as the innocent boy who transmogrifies into a bloody criminal, Dhanush is utterly believable. The subtle changes in his body language and his ability to give every expression a deeper meaning make the character more interesting. This is certainly one of his better performances. The film which became universally critically praised, failed to relate to Tamil Nadu audiences and ended up being an average grosser at the box-office, despite the positive reviews. The film fared marginally better, in the Telugu dubbed version, titled Dhoolpet. Dhanush achieved his first hit in three years with the commercial entertainer Thiruvilayadal Arambam, alongside Shriya Saran and Prakash Raj. The comedy film, showed the relationship between a poor man who loved the sister of a businessman. The film was well-received by critics and audiences alike.

Dhanush's first release of 2007, Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram, flopped at the box-office, gaining negative reviews in the process. The film, which was a remake of the successful Kannada language film, Jogi, starred him opposite Meera Jasmine However, his second film released during Diwali 2007, became a blockbuster at the box office, in which his performance was raved. Polladhavan, based on 1948-Italian neorealist The Bicycle Thieves, featured Dhanush opposite Divya Spandana, and the film's "fresh screenplay" by director Vetrimaran helped the film become a super hit.

The remake of a successful Telugu film directed by his brother, was the plotline for Dhanush's first 2008 release. Directed by debutant A. Jawahar, Yaaradi Nee Mohini with Nayantara became a big blockbuster at the box-office. He later appeared in a cameo appearance, for his father-in-law Rajnikanth's venture, Kuselan, being portrayed as himself in a song sequence. His latest venture was in Suraj's Padikathavan opposite Tamanna Bhatia which had a January 2009 release. His performance was praised, with citing that "Dhanush is in top form as he has never danced so well" and "has improved a lot in action", with claims that the climax fight featuring him was "outstanding" and the film has become a super hit giving Dhanush a "hatrick successes". His forthcoming ventures include a collabaration with his brother in Idhu Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam alongside Andrea Jeremiah as well Kadhir opposite Shriya Saran.
