Vijay's latest release Varisu has been running to packed theatres. The film, helmed by Vamshi Paidipally, is a family drama-cum-action entertainer. The plot revolves around a business tycoon who is on a mission to choose Varisu among his three sons to take over his empire. The latest we hear about the Vijay film is that it is likely to premiere on television on the occasion of Tamil New Year on April 14. However, there has been official confirmation about the same.

The film has opened to mostly positive reviews from the audience. However, some have called the film a tad too lengthy and that it had nothing new to offer. The film has an ensemble star cast including Vijay, Sarathkumar, Prakash Raj, Shaam, Srikanth, Ganesh Venkatram, Yogi Babu, Jayasudha, Rashmika Mandanna, Sangeetha Krish and Samyuktha to name a few.

This is music director Thaman's maiden collaboration with Vijay and the songs have gone on to become huge chartbusters, especially Ranjithame and Thee Thalapathy. While the cinematography is by Karthik Palani, editing is by Praveen KL. On the box office front, the film has set the cash registers ringing.

Varisu released along with Ajith's action entertainer Thunivu, helmed by H Vinoth and bankrolled by Boney Kapoor. The film revolved around a bank heist and the film is Ajith's show all the way as the actor goes out all guns blazing. The film had Manju Warrier teaming up with Ajith for the first time and the rest of the star cast included Samuthirakani, GM Sundar, John Kokken, Veera, Bagavathi Perumal to name a few. Thunivu, too, has been raking in the moolah at the box office.

Since the films of onscreen rivals Ajith and Vijay were hitting screens after a long gap of eight years, fans had a gala time at the theatres as they released simultaneously on January 11.
