Sura to release in Kerala only after two weeks of world wide release:Film Distributors Association Kerala


Film Distributors Association Kerala (FDAK) has decided not to allow any non-Malayalam movie to release simultaneously with the all India release from May 1 this year.It’s bad news for Tamil films.

This decision which will hit the Tamil film industry hard more than any others, the decision is taken according to the Kerala film body to protect small Malayalam films in Kerala. It may be noted that in the past few months non-Malayalam films like Avatar, Vinnaithandi Varuvaya, Vettaikkaran, 3 Idiots were the films which did fantastic business at the box-office in Kerala. Particularly Tamil films have a huge following in Kerala as much as for Malayalam if not more.

Vijay’s ‘Sura’ is releasing worldwide on May 1. But with the new decision of Film Distributors Association Kerala, it cannot have a simultaneous release in Kerala. It can release in Kerala only two weeks after its worldwide release.

There are talks to release it on April 23 to over come this issue, but the team is waiting to have it censored before announcing the date

 The music tracks, which were released recently, have already turned out to be a great success.
