Mani Ratnam’s Kadal which was cleared by the censors with an ‘U’ certificate is now ready for release on February 1.
The Kadal release ad with date has been published in some Sunday newspapers.
Mani Ratnam and Gemini Film Circuit where very clear from the beginning that it will release on February 1. There were rumours that Mani would postpone his release by a week so that Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam releasing on January 25 would get an extended second week run without opposition.
But Mannan Films who had purchased Kadal Tamil Nadu theatrical rights from GFC were insisting on a February 1 release. They have the theatres ready and a clear three weeks before exam season starts in Tamil Nadu.
