Harvest festival Pongal has set the stage for a few big budget releases of the kingpins of Kollywood. Vijay’s Pokkiri, Ajith’s Alwar, and Vishal’s Thamiraparani released amidst huge fanfare in theatres across Tamil Nadu. There were initial hiccups in the release of Pokkiri when the movie was not released in a few theatres in Chennai.
Fans resorted to stone pelting in display of their anger and they gave it a rest when the movie was screened little later.
Now that the hype is over with, it is time for trade analysis and reports from all over. Trade analysts predict from the initial reports that are pouring in from Kerala that Pokkiri’s performance in the state will outdo the collections of Vijay’s previous hit Gilli in no time.
Sources also suggest that while Alwar has been categorized as Ajith’s fan-only movie, Vishal’s Thamiraparani stand a fat chance to have a say at the box office. Stay tuned for updates on Pongal releases.
