The summer holiday season is over as schools have reopened. But the regular flow of films continues at the box-office. This week it is a straight fight between two romcoms Vimal-Raj Kiran-Lakshmi Menon Manja Pai and Prakash Raj – Sneha starrer Un Samayal Araiyil.
The buzz on Lingusamy produced Manja Pai is positive. The film tells the story of a US returned techie bringing his grandfather to Chennai from his village and their bonding. Un Samayal Araiyil is a remake of Malayalam film Salt & Pepper.
The big Hindi film of the week is Akshay Kumar’s Holiday, the Hindi version of director AR Murgadoss’s smash Vijay hit Thupakki. The film is releasing big in Chennai and suburbs. The other Hindi release is the off-beat Filmistaan which is releasing in select multiplexes.
From Hollywood the summer action packed Tom Cruise sci/fi film Edge of Tomorrow is releasing. The film has awesome war action scenes in 3D.
