Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam was supposed to dominate the big Republic Day Weekend, but the stay on the release of the film has caused panic among theaters. It was to get a solo release, but not possible due to court ruling.
So there is only one Tamil release, Pathaayiram Kodi, a Vivek low budget comedy. The big hindi release is Race 2 along with other low budget films like Main Krishna Hoon,
and Akaash Vani .Two Malaylam films are releasing the multi-starrer Mammooty-Dileep Kammath and Kammath and little known hit with newcomers Nee Ko Njaa Chaa.
It clearly means the Pongal leftover films like KLTA and Samar gets a bonus weekend!
