Mainstream Tamil films seems to have disappeared from the release menu.
Hollywood and this week Bollywood seems to have taken over the market.
Another little known Tamil film Aanmai Thavarael with newcomers and dealing with human trafficking is the only release of the week.
Another film looking suspiciously like soft- porn Oru Sandhipil is also releasing in single screens.
The big release of the week is Salman Khan-Asin starrer Ready, a remake of Dhanush's Uthamaputhran. The Salman Khan mass entertainer is releasing in a dozen screens in Chennai and suburbs and should take a fantastic opening. The advance booking in multiplexes has been very good for the film.
Jackie Chan's delayed Little Big Soldier is releasing in many screens in Chennai. Meanwhile last week's Hangover 2 and Kungu Fu Panda 2 continues to do super business, and has been sold out for the weekend in multiplexes.
