Happy New Year to all sify users!

2012 is going to be a great year for Tamil films. The first of the biggies are releasing for Pongal.

They are Shankar’s Vijay multi-starrer Nanban and Lingusamy ‘s multi-starrer Vettai with Madhavan and Jiiva.

Gemini Film Circuit produced Nanban has been censored with a clean ‘U’ certificate and release date has been announced as Thursday January 12, three days before Pongal which falls on January 15.

UTV Motion Pictures Vettai is to be censored this week and the release has been tentatively put as Saturday January 14.

It will ensure that both the films donot clash and will help garner a good opening.

There will not be any other major releases for Pongal, barring a few littleknown films.

All theatres in Tamil Nadu are being booked well in advance. The Nanban versus Vettai is going to be aterrific confrontation at the box-office.
