Tamil releases this Diwali/ Eid

October 16, 2006
Here's a look at the big Tamil movies, releasing this Diwali.


Last Diwali, we saw the clash of Vikram and Vijay with Sivakasi and Majaa. But this year, there are no films of superstars like Kamal Haasan, Rajnikanth, Vikram or Vijay.

But then again, this year we have a film from the king of the box office, Ajith. No actor of his generation can match the kind of opening an Ajith film gets.

Godfather, which has been rechristened Varalaaru after the state government announced tax exemption for films with Tamil titles, is the biggest release of the season. Though Ajith didn't have a great time at the box office with his films for some time, his last film, Tirupathi, completed 100 days recently.

Varalaaru, which was supposed to release last year along with Chandramukhi, Mumbai Express and Sachin, sees Ajith in three roles -- father, son and the villain. It also features Asin, one of the hottest heroines in Tamil cinema.

Varalaaru is directed by one of the most successful Tamil directors, K S Ravikumar, who is currently directing Kamal Haasan's Dasavatharam. Ravkumar had given Ajith a big hit in Villain, in which he played a double role.

A R Rahman has scored the music, and P C Sreeram, the cinematography.
