All you Gautam Menon fans will have to wait one more week for the release of his Pachaikili Muthucharam! The film which was scheduled to release on Feb 9, has been pushed forward by a week and will now release only on Feb 16.

On Monday (Feb 5), the censors cleared the film with an "A" certificate for its theme with no visual cuts but a few dialogue muting. Those who saw the film are raving about its bold and daring content and say that it looks like a Hollywood thriller.

Producer `Oscar` Ravichandran wanted one more week to create a publicity campaign around the film. Added to that the Karnataka distributor of the film wanted a one-week delay in release as the Cauvery issue has forced theatres in Bangalore to stop screening Tamil films.

The Bangalore multiplexes and single screens in the city constitute 85 percent of the box-office earnings of a Tamil film in Karnataka!

Pachaikili Muthucharam will now positively release on February 16. One of the overseas distributors of the film for North America territory is Gautam Menon himself!
