There is just 10 days to Diwali 2012.
The line-up of Tamil movies is impressive though basically it will be a clash between Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Thuppakki and STR’s Podaa Podi.
There are two other small films which are looking for screens, Kalla Thuppakki with new faces and Thangar Bachchan’s Amavin Kaipesi.
Both Thuppakki and Podaa Podi at the time of writing are yet to be censored. They are in the process of getting censored. All areas for Thuppakki is said to have been sold out as the makers are moving mountains to get a Friday November 9 release.
If they release on that day they get a four day window before Diwali (Nov 13) worldwide and enable a huge opening.
STR’s Podaa Podi according to Hitesh Jabak, the producer of the film, will release only on Diwali day (November 13). The music of the film has caught on in a big way.
The AR Murgadoss directed Thuppakki will get the premium and maximum screens in Tamil Nadu. The other two likely releases Kalla Thuppakki and Amavin Kaipesi are trying their best to get screens.
