Vikrams Thaandavam

High Court has not banned release of Vikram’s Thaandavam

Vikrams ThaandavamProduced by UTV Motion Pictures and directed by A.L. Vijay, the Vikram-Anushka-Amy Jackson-Lakshmi Rai starrer Thandavam hits the screens worldwide today.  The film has created huge expectations with Vikram playing the role of a ‘visually impaired person’ who takes on his detractors and enemies courageously using his ears as his eyes with the aid of a particular technique.

Shot mostly in and around London, the film’s audio was launched some time back and the film hits the theatres today.  Trade circles say that the advance booking for the film by the fans of the stars in it has been ‘encouraging’ and points out to better days for the film at the box-office.  However, the ‘opening’ (ticket sales in theatres at the first 3-5 days) is an important factor and it remains to be seen how the film fares.

The film, however, releases under controversial circumstances with Ponnuswamy, an assistant director who had worked under Radhamohan in films such as Mozhi and Payanam, accusing UTV’s Dhananjayan of ‘hijacking’ the script and the dialogues from him when he visited the latter a few months back and narrated a story.  Instead of giving him a chance to make a film out of the script, Dhananjayan had gone ahead and used the script for Thandavam, Ponnusamy has said.

He also filed a case at the Madras High Court seeking ban on release of the film till the dispute is settled.  “UTV promised it’d include me in Thandavam as an assistant director.  Instead of including me, they had used my script for the film and haven’t even given credit to me in the film’s title cards,” he had said and sought a ban on the film’s release.

After hearing the arguments of both the parties, the Court  has  postponed the  next hearing to two weeks later.

    the movie banner looks very dull and music is crap. i do not know if this movie will have much expectation. vikarm has aged and trying to look young is a great task. he must have done something to keep is skin tight from saaging. saying all things go up must come down. shankar also gamblinmg with him in his new project and only time will tell.

      Movie is not about looks.. its about acting.. al pacino is the best example.. we should encourage such talents rather than masala movies..

    movie is really worth to watch with gud story narration,picturisation and especially songs r too gud. my opinion is really it is a great comeback 4 vikram…dont talk about looks r age…because superstar also looks very old without make up…i m not mocking superstar but this is the fact…vikram-vijay-gv-santhanam-nirav sha combination is too gud

    Please look the issue stated here, Ponnusamy assistant director of Radha Mohan is claiming this story is written by him and its stolen by this movie crew. Everyone part of this.. please raise your support to him instead of talking about Vikram..
    You will know that pain when someome steal your talent and claims as his own talent. Hope you understands!!
