The first Friday of August is here. As usual there are five Tamil
releases, with hardly any publicity. We just don’t understand the mad
rush by Tamil film producers to release films without any publicity.
Among the lot, the film with some kind of publicity is Atharva Murali’s Bala produced, Sargunan directed Chandi Veeran. The other four Tamil releases are Azhage Illatha Azhagana Kathal, Kurangu Kaila Poomalai, Kalai Vendhan and Vandha Mala. The big Hollywood film of the week is Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible –Rogue Nation, which released on Thursday. The lone Hindi Multiplex film is Bangistan.
Mahesh Babu’s Telugu Srimanthudu is releasing big in Chennai city and suburbs. The multiplex big screens have given it priority and the Tamil dubbed version Selvandhan is releasing in single screens.
