December usually is a time where Tamil film industry doesn’t bring out movies with megastars playing pivotal roles.
But its a complete u-turn this December as you can expect it to be a feast for all the movie enthusiasts.
The producers and distributors think it’s much wise to hold on the release for Pongal which happens to be in January.
Take for example the calculated delay in the release of Dhanush starrer Aadukalam.
Dhanush commented “It makes better sense as the Pongal weekend is huge this time with five consecutive holidays. If the weather holds up, it will be an ideal time for movie watching.” Indeed,the holiday season cements his reasoning of a delayed release as it is a time when families can hope to get together and enjoy their evenings.
As G Dhananjayan adds, “It makes better sense to advance the film’s release. We have tentatively slotted Sidhu + 2 for December 10, depending on the availability of theatres.” That’s a smart move we think.Just read on to see why.
There is Surya’s Rattha Charitram and Arya’s and Shriya’s Chikku Bhukku being slotted for a December 3 release.
The most significant release will be that Kamal’s Manmadhan Ambu that has been creating ripples around the globe after its massive media promotion and is set to release around Christmas and thanks to its controversies Vijay’s Kaavalan also has been pushed for a release in late December around Christmas too.
One look at those names and you know this December will keep you on your toes with Surya, Arya, Kamal, Vijay all fighting for your positive verdicts.
Karthi’s Siruthai, Dhanush’s Aadukalam ,Sasikumar’s Easan, Jeeva’s Ko and Jayam Ravi’s Engeyum Kaadhal will also compete during Pongal.
Another reason for the saturation maybe the interest of cricket lovers in the southern states who relish their time watching the Cricket World Cup and flock to watch the matches which will commence from February 19 . M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is also a selected venue amongst the selected few.
Our advice, fasten your seat belts and get ready for a ride this coming December followed by Pongal.
