​July 26- New releases fight for screens!

Last Updated: Fri, Jul 19, 2013 05:13 hrs

It is becoming increasingly difficult in getting screens for Tamil films in Tamil Nadu on July 26.

As per earlier schedule four films were supposed to release- Pattathu Yaanai, Ponmaalai Pozhudhu, Sonna Puriyaadhu and Thanga Meengal.

All of them wanted to release with 100 plus screens and Pattathu Yaanai has announced a release in 800 plus screens worldwide. The ground reality in Tamil Nadu is that there are hardly 900 screens out of which only 600 odd get a regular release.

So Ponmaalai Pozhudhu and Thanga Meengal opted out of the race. Now the remaining two Pattathu Yaanai and Sonna Puriyaadhu are finding it increasingly difficult to get the necessary screens.  Suriya’s Singam 2 which is a super hit is fiercely guarding its screens in major towns and Dhanush’s Maryan releasing today will run its course.

Now Pattathu Yaanai and Sonna Puriyathu backed by strong producers and distributors are trying to mop up enough screens to get a decent release.
