PONGAL JACKPOT: Pokkiri

The harvest festival is round the corner and so are the releases of a few Tamil films, an annual affair. Since Pongal falls on Monday, some will hit the theatres even today.

High on action and romance is `Pokkiri,’ starring Vijay and Asin. Circumstances force the hero to align himself with the villain but not for long. Watch out for the climax that has a surprise. Sri Kanakarathna Movies’s `Pokkiri,’ produced by Ramesh Babu, is the 45th film of Vijay.

Prabhu Deva, who has directed two films in Telugu, makes his first attempt in Tamil. “The film has love, sentiment, fight and the acting of Vijay. We have shot the film in different locations here and in foreign countries,” said Prabhu Deva, who is confident of the box office success of the film.

Vijay found working with Deva a wonderful experience. “I was happy to work with Prabhu Deva, the man who has given two hits in Telugu. The expectations are high and we have worked hard to satisfy our fans. It is a year (`Aadhi’ was released last Pongal) since my film has been released and my fans must be looking forward to it and I have tried not to let them down,” he said. Mani Sharma has scored the music while Nirav Shah has handled the camera. V. Prabhakar has written the dialogue. The screenplay-direction is taken care of by Prabhu Deva.
