With just 10 days to go for Pongal, one of the major festivals of Tamiliains living worldwide, the box-office is gearing up for three major releases on the coveted day. Vijay’s much-awaited ‘Kaavalan’, Dhanush’s much-delayed ‘Aadukalam’ and Karthi’s much-talked about ‘Siruthai’ would be releasing on Pongal to vie for honours. 3-4 films other than the ones referred are also likely to be released on Pongal.
Vijay’s fans are dying to have him back on screen after a string of flops. In Vijay’s own words, he has played an ‘unconventional role’ which would appeal to all sections of the audience. Vijay, however, faced many hurdles (which he attributed to the ‘political pressure’) in getting the theatres of his choice. He some how has managed to have the last laugh on this count.

Vijay badly needs a hit not only to sustain his billing as a top star in the industry but also to satisfy his fans and theatre-owners. Vijay’s political aspiration is said to be very much dependent on the film’s outcome.
Dhanush’s ‘Aadukalam’, directed by Vetrimaran who directed him in ‘Polladhavan’ a few years ago, has raised expectations with the odd backdrop of the story.

Karthi’s double-roles in ‘Siruthai’ is also being eagerly looked forward to by his fans as well as by the critics who would analyze his skills in playing those dual roles so early in his career.

Besides, lyricist Paa Vijay’s ‘Ilaignan’ is also to make it to the theatres on the Big Day.
Let’s see who wins the race!
