Tamil and Telugu cinema have long had a tradition of adding some adjective before the names of stars. Rajinikanth is called there as Thalaiva Rajinikanth and Joseph Vijay Chandrasekhar as Dalapati Vijay. There is no such word as Thalapati in Sanskrit, neither in Tamil nor in Hindi, the correct word is Dalapati. Due to the way Tamil is written in English, Thalapathy is added to Vijay’s name in the Hindi strip, while he writes his name as Vijay. After this general knowledge of cinema, it is the turn of the name of the film. ‘Vaarisu’ in Tamil would mean in Hindi, heir. This word also strikes the real thread of the film’s story. Knowledge gives liberation. And, maya bondage. There is no bigger bond than who will inherit the property earned through Sama, Daam, Dand and Bheda. ‘Vaarisu’, which was released in Tamil on January 11, has now been dubbed and released in Hindi on Friday.
