There are only three seasons in Chennai- hot, hotter and hottest.
This Friday (May 4), is the beginning of the much dreaded Kathiri or Agni Natchatiram period, which is the hottest time of the year in Chennai.
Traditionally, people make a beeline to air-conditioned theatres during this period. Summer and the month of May are synonymous with big star movies. Unfortunately this May will not have any Tamil biggies releasing.
This week there are just three small Tamil releases- Gantham ,Paramaguru and critically raved about Vazhakku Enn 18/9. The two dubbing films are Jakamma and Click 3.
In English the children film Hugo- 3D and action packed Safe are releasing. The lone Hindi release is Jannat 2. Mohanlal’s Grandmaster is releasing simultaneously with Kerala. Big surprise Kannada film Anna Bond is having a Chennai release.
