It is the IPL 6 Finals weekend, so big Tamil movies are keeping away.
However there are four little known Tamil releases this week. They are Maasani, Oru Nadigayin Diary, Galapetti and Chockali.
Most of these new Tamil releases have hardly got any multiplex release and are mostly in suburban single screens. There is also a dubbing film Karimedu, which has evoked some interest as it is distributed by Ramanarayanan’s Sri Thenandal Films.
The big release of the week is the Hollywood road actioner Fast & Furious 6, which is releasing big in English and Tamil in nearly 30 screens in Chennai and suburbs. It should take a very good opening considering the franchise is popular.
The Hindi releases are purely the multiplex one-show kind like Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke, Ishq in Paris and Doraemon The Movie Nobita Aur Jadooi Tapu.
The Malayalam film Bharya Athra Pora which released in Kerala a month back is also releasing in Chennai.
