It is Friday the 13th and the Pongal weekend began on January 12 with the release of Shankar’s Vijay multi-starrer Nanban, in nearly 50 screens in Chennai city and suburbs.
Today the small budget Vidharth of Mynaa fame Kollaikaran is opening and tomorrow (Jan 14), UTV’s Lingusamy directed Vettai is releasing.
Vettai will be releasing in nearly 250 plus screens in Tamil Nadu and is sure to take a bumper opening.
Two big Telugu films Mahesh Babu’s Businessman and Venkatesh’s Bodyguard are releasing for the Pongal-Sankranthi weekend.
Mahesh Babu’s Businessman seems to have an edge as it has got more shows in multiplexes.
Any which way you look the focus will remain on Tamil films during the Pongalweekend.
