Looks like the suspense over shuffling of film releases in Kollywood on upcoming festivals is still continuing. The latest news coming from the industry circles is that KV Kathirvelu's Sasikumar-starrer Rajavamsam and Kannan's Atharvaa-Anupama-starrer Thalli Pogathey have postponed their theatrical releases from October 14. It is said that an official announcement of the same will be made by the makers of the respective projects soon.
According to the grapevine, Aranmanai 3, which is set to release on the same date, is expected to be screened in huge number of theatres. Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Doctor, which had hit the screens on last Saturday, is still attracting good number of audience, and will hold a lot of screens for at least a week or two.
In this scenario, the team of Thalli Pogathey and Rajavamsam decided to opt out from the box office battle. However, Sasikumar will have an OTT release on October 14. Udanpirappe, which has him playing one of the leads, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video. Earlier, Vishal-Arya-starrer Enemy, which had first announced its arrival on October 14 as a Dussehra release, postponed its release to Deepavali.
The film will take on Annaatthe, Maanaadu and Vaa Deal. Silambarasan-starrer Maanaadu's arrival on Deepavali was also a surprise for film buffs. They were anticipating a box office clash between Rajinikanth and Ajith again with Annaatthe and Valimai respectively, but the latter announced its release on Pongal 2022.
The announcement of Arun Vijay-starrer Vaa Deal making it to theatres on Deepavali was another surprise for movie buffs. The action film was completed a few years ago, and the makers had last informed that they might go the OTT way. For now, Arya-starrer Aranmanai 3 is likely to have a solo release for Dussehra . It has to be seen if there will be more surprises in the offing for cinephiles.
