Suddenly October 5, is turning out to be the big Friday for Tamil films. Four medium and small movies- Katrathu Tamil, Pasupathi c/o Rasakkapalayam, Thavam, Veeramum Eeramum are ready for release. All the four releases are significant in their own way.
Katrathu Tamil- There is a lot of pre-release hype around the film, with Jeeva saying it is the best film he has done so far. The director Ram Subbu has graduated from Balu Mahendra school of film making, and Yuvan has made soul stirring music with his Appa singing a song in the film, which may become popular once the film releases. It is also Jeeva's big ticket to being recognized as an actor of substance. And comedian Karunas has taken the distribution rights of the film for entire Tamilnadu.
Pasupathi c/o Rasakkapalayam - Ranjit is trying to get a foothold as a hero with this film, where Vivek plays a parallel hero role, and also has Sindhu Tolani. The first half of this film is a full of comedy inspired from the Malayalam Jayaram film Uthaman, and the second half is steamy sentiments. The film is directed by Selvabharathy and has music by Deva, and is aimed at B & C audiences.
Thavam, has Arun Vijay in the lead as an action hero along with Vedika and new girls Arpita and Vandana, and comedy by Vadivel. The film is produced by our "Action King" Arjun and directed by Sakthi Parameswar, with music by D.Imman and said to be an out and out action movie with lots of songs and glamour. For Arun Vijay it is one more chance to prove that he has the making of an action hero, and let us hope that lady luck favours him with a hit.
Veeramum Eeramum- It is the real life story of the dreaded don of south Tamilnadu Venkatesha Pannaiyar, who was killed in a police encounter during the previous Jayalalithaa regime in September 2003. Pannaiyar for the locals was a modern day Robinhood and an important caste leader. Saravannan after that brilliant performance in Paruthiveeran, is playing Pannaiyar in the film , while his wife's(now a DMK, MP) role is done by Sonia. The film is directed by Sanjay Ram and has music by Yugendran, Malayasia Vasudevan's son.
