After a long time a Tamil biggie is releasing, creating huge expectations.
Bala`s multi starrer Avan Ivan featuring Arya and Vishal in the lead is releasing in nearly 20 Chennai screens. In addition a couple of soft-porn movies are also releasing.
Avan Ivan is expected to take a fantastic opening as the advance booking has been encouraging. Added to that, Bala is a brand and along with are actors who command some kind of opening like Arya and Vishal, it looks to be a safe bet.
The trade also wants Avan Ivan to click, so that the monopoly of the K family which controlled the trade in the last three years is broken. The producers of the film AGS Entertainments has been able to sell the film on MG in many territories, and has also got handsome deposits.
The Malayalam Shwetha Menon Rathinirvedam is releasing in six Chennai screens and is being marketed aggressively with suggestive posters. Another soft-porn release is Annagarigam.
Along with that there are a couple of one show multiplex Hindi films like Bheja Fry 2, Always Kabhi Kabhi etc.
The big Hollywood film releasing simultaneously with the rest of the world and with Tamil dubbing in 3D is Green Lantern. The sci-fi action thriller should get an opening though it is getting bad pre-release talk on the internet.
