It is going to be the biggest weekend at the movies.
Traditionally, world over the first Friday of May is considered to be the time when box-office booms big time. May 7 in Chennai will see four Tamil releases, and a Hindi youth film trying to get a piece of the box-office cake.
The four Tamil films are Chimbudevan’s long delayed cowboy adventureIrumbu Kottai Murattu Singam, a Madurai shocker Goripalayam, Sathyaraj- Sundar C comedy caper Guru Sishyan and Ramanarayanan’s graphics laden Kutti Pisasu.
There are no big star movies and last weeks Vijay’s Sura is swimming in troubled waters.
The big Hindi release is Yashraj films Shahid Kapoor’s Badmaash Company, opening in six Chennai screens. The shocking news is that Hollywood’s big summer release Iron Man 2 releasing worldwide today, will not have a simultaneous release in Chennai, due to non availability of theatres.
