The official Tamil picks include AR Murugadoss directorial 7aam Arivu with Suriya and Shruti Haasan in lead roles, tracing the life of Bodhidharman. Joining in will be Balaji Sakthivel’s Vazhakku Enn 18/9 that was a massive hit given the expert handling of the subject done by director Balaji.

    7aam arivu became a flop because regular people have only 6 senses – Surya has 7th sense because he’s a Gay !

    sarcastic india’s indian people, don’t have taste….7 am arivu is one of the best movie ever in indian cinema….in malaysia here we just loved that movie

  3. Nayanthara lover

    PLease stop writing chepa comments like Nanban will win and Velayudham will win. Just because both movies released on Diwali soesnt mean they qulaify for Oscars. Above all Velayudham was all short in comparison to 7aam Arivu which was a completely different approach in Indian cinema. Bringing in documentary style to the masses was a great effort by Murugadoss sir and Surya too did his part well. The film made every Tamizhan learn a little more about his culture . Velayudhan again was formula movie nothing different. And why even bring NAnban . If at all 3 idiots should get the Oscar not Nanban. Nanban was a frame to frame remake with sub standard performance compared to that of Aamir .

    atleast vijay truely made a remake of nanban and velayudham which is well picturised, but 7th sense story is fake and making people to believe by creating websites of bhodhidharma and mapping through google and make an add in the movie to search in google. who ever believes or not i was great fan of surya and wanted to see the bhodhidarman temple in china, i had been to china and there is no such temple and statue but in movie they have made a set for statue, we even asked chinese people abt kumfuu and bodhidarma but none have an idea abt bhodhidarma and kumfuu is their religious thing which had come from their 1st generation and there is no particular person who thought those tricks and fights i even asked to take mind control but no one where able to take my mind control. Every thing is fake just they wanted tamilian to be famous so they tried it out i feel proud for the movie to bring up tamilian stronger, but Oscar is for film performance and script that should not be given for the fake story,

      @Truth – pls google some simple things before makinga fool out of yourself here. Shaolin Temple is very famous worldwide. How come you are such a fool not to do eve na simple search before blindly commenting things. I’m dunno if 7aam arivu is worth to deserve a Oscar nomination. But things mentioned in the movie are indeed true!

      1. chinese

        @truth is rite, @Usha what ever u told is fake, indians are making so many fake websites before the release of 7th sense its all the movie team work for those sites, come to china i vl clearly explain u whats going on here, all the google search for bhodhidharma is fake and the movie 7th sense movie story is totally imagination, here the story is only different.

    Mangatha has no power for oscar, it was success do to remake of CHAOS (2006), Jason Statham’s thrilling entertainer. not only that its theme music was copied from pokkiri, not only that its luck for ajith as vijay guifted a watch to him what he was wearing it in the movie so we vijay fans saw the movie coz of the watch. watch the video of theme copied.

  10. vijay fan

    also mangatha tittle was copied from vijay, vijay dialog from sura, unga aatha enga aatha illa mangathaa….
