It looks like a big weekend for Tamil small budget films, mainly with newcomers. A record six Tamil films are releasing this week; it is the highest number of releases in a single week this year.
The Tamil releases are Anjal Thurai, Chitirayil Nila Choru, Nirnayam, Nugam Ninavugal Unnodu and Ragalapuram. They have all got one or two shows in little known single screens in Chennai. Outside of Chennai, nobody is clear whether some of these films will find screens.
The Hindi releases are Boss and Shahid in limited screens. The Telugu film Doosukeltha is also releasing in a few screens. The number of screens for other language films is very limited as previous week’s release Vanakkam Chennai and Gravity has got more screens in its second week.
There are two Hollywood releases this week. The mass action entertainer Escape Plans and Captain Philips.
