It is summer of 2010’s big Friday — May 21. There is going to be five Tamil releases, big Bollywood release Hrithik Roshan’s Kites and the delayed Hollywood summer hit Iron Man 2.
There are far too many releases in Tamil- Kola Kolaya Mundhirika, Kanagavel Kakka, Kuttrappirivu, Magane En Marumagane, and Maanja Velu. A comedy, three action films and a family tear jerker.
None of the new releases has got proper show timings and the multiplexes have played them down giving some of them only Saturday and Sunday Morning Shows at odd hours.
Added to that the five Tamil releases has to compete with Hrithik Roshan’s big budget Kites which is opening in seven screens and the action packed Iron Man 2, opening in 10 screens!
Meanwhile Chimbudevan’s cowboy film Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam which is doing very well in Chennai city has been given more number of shows by the multiplexes. All in all a tough weekend for Kollywood, as more number of releases mean more flops as audiences get divided.
