It is the big Vinayaka Chathurthi weekend, and box-office is going to boom. There are 5 Tamil releases, 3 Hollywood films, one Hindi film and biggies in other languages. All the multiplexes are under pressure to give more shows and prime time.
The five Tamil releases are Irumbu Kuthirai, Kaadhal 2014, Megha, Puthiyathor Ulagam Seivom and Salim. Among the lot Atharvaa Murali's Irumbu Kuthirai and Vijay Antony's Salim are releasing big and got best of screens. If these films do decent business, it will auger well for the industry.
In other language releases the biggies are Mohanlal's Onam release Peruchazhi and NTR-Samantha mass entertainer Rabhasa. The Hollywood releases are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The November Man & Step Up. In Hindi, Raja Natwarlal, a crime comedy film directed by Kunal Deshmukh with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is releasing.
It promises to be a cracking weekend with potentially huge box-office for the three day festival weekend.
