STR’s musical Podaa Podi written and directed by debutant Vignesh Shivan is getting censored today (November 5).

The film features Silambarasan and new face Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in the lead roles along with veteran actress Shobana. The music of the film by Dharan, is already a chartbuster. The film is slated for Diwali release on November 13.

It looks like an STR versus Vijay at the Diwali box-office with Thuppakki also censored and releasing on November 9. STR and his producer Hitesh Jabak is gutsy to take on the biggie as they feel there is a market for another film for Diwali.

Podaa Podi may not be an action film but it is a musical and may woo the family audiences and is touted to be technically brilliant with excellent camerawork and editing by Antony.

This romantic musical sans any violence or item numbers is perfect for a family outing this Diwali and the feel-good factor that the film carries with it is sure to make it a winner at the box-office.
