The audio launch of Thirrupathy Brothers Kumki, was of the grandest and most well conducted film events held in recent times.
As a launch film for a new hero it couldn’t get bigger than this. Vikram Prabhu who is debuting as hero is star material and couldn’t have asked for more! After all who could be so lucky as to have 2 living legends Rajni and Kamal to launch the audio of his film? But being the grandson of Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan, and son of Prabhu, Vikram has everything going for him right now.
A live performance of the film songs was on as guests trickled in and filled the giant hall. Two songs and a trailer were shown. Sukumar’s breathtaking camerawork came in for much praise. D Imman is teaming up with Prabhu Solomon again after Mynaa and has composed 6 songs. Aiyoyo and Sollitaley which were filmed on Vikram and Laxmi Menon were screened.
Gautham Menon welcomed the gathering with a rare singing of apt songs as he invited each celebrity on stage. Surya received the audio while Satyaraj and Karthi wished the team apart from Balaji Saktivel, Pandiraj and others.

Rajni revealed that though he usually avoids film functions he had changed his mind and decided to come at the last minute since this was a function of an important member of the film family, namely Sivaji’s grandson.
Kamal got emotional and recalled his close ties to Sivaji. “We are seeing today what he could not in his lifetime. I have tears of joy,” he said. Despite the huge turnout of celebs there was pin drop silence as the stalwarts spoke and no noise and hooting was heard all through.
The warmth and genuinely heartfelt wishes for Prabhu Solomon’s team and Vikram, from all the speakers, was apparent for all to see. Even Karthi broke into a song ‘olimayamaana edhirkaalam…’ for his friend Vikram!
After the event Prabhu revealed to the media that the CM Selvi Jayalalitha phoned Prabhu and wished him and the team and said she would come to meet them while former CM Kalaignar Karunanidhi too wished him and requested that they show him the film.
