Deepavali is a second many critical festival in Tamil Nadu after Pongal. As per tradition, examination a new film is a contingency on Deepavali day.
In a good aged days, when there were around 100 releases a year, during slightest 7 or 8 large and tiny Tamil films used to recover on a festival day. For Tamil cinema superstars, a Deepavali recover is a status emanate that ensures a 5 to 10 % additional collections during a box-office.
Fans in 80s and 90s used to energetically demeanour brazen to epic Deepavali clashes between Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. The conditions has not altered much, yet 2016 will not have any tip stars like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Vijay or Ajith films in a competition for a recover on a festival.
However, fireworks have already started in Kollywood, as stars like Dhanush (Kodi), Karthi (Kaashmora), Vishal (Kathi Sandai) have strictly announced their Deepavali releases by their Twitter handle. That creates it 3 films on one day.
To supplement to a suspense, one of a Twitter handles connected to Suriya’s S3, also famous as Singam3, has pronounced it will really be a Deepavali release. There is tragedy in Tamil film trade, as it is unfit to accommodate all a 4 biggies. The prophecy is that atleast dual of them will not recover on Deepavali or will be shifted.
There was a time when it was probable for many films to recover simultaneously. In a 90s, a Rajinikanth blockbuster like Baasha used to recover in limit 175 screens, when film prints were used for screening. Today, in a digital age, Kabali expelled in 700 peculiar screens in Tamil Nadu alone.
Tamil Nadu has around 1160 screens, out of that usually 950 are fit for new releases. Now a normal film releases in 350 to 400 screens, depending on a hero’s star power, and it would be probably unfit to have 4 large releases on a same day. In fact, trade sources contend ideally they cite one large favourite film and 3 tiny films, yet this Deepavali can accommodate dual large favourite films.
What is intriguing though, is that Suriya’s S3 has thrown in a shawl in a Deepavali ring, during a time when his hermit Karthi’s costliest film Kaashmora had announced a recover date dual months back.
Trade experts contend that a strife won’t take place as there will be an bargain between a brothers. Sources contend S3 is subsidy adult in box a graphics and special effects brimful duration anticipation fear Kaashmora post-production work gets delayed.
The fire of Hari-directed authorization S3, will be over in a initial week of Sep and it will be prepared for a Deepavali recover on 29 October.
The writer of Kaashmora, SR Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures, said, “ We are on lane for a large Deepavali release, as all a post prolongation work will get over by Sep finish and we are perplexing to bury a film by Oct initial week. Many areas have been sole out as a bilingual in Tamil and Telugu will recover on Deepavali day.”
The whole fire of Dhanush’s Kodi, a domestic thriller set opposite a farming milieu, has been complete. The producers of a film contend that they are on report for a Deepavali recover as well.
Vishal, who is a ‘Nadigar Sangam’ (actors association) arch also reiterated his film, Kathi Sandai, will make it to theatres on a betrothed day.
All a 4 films are corroborated by absolute prolongation houses and there is hum that a actors concerned have been listened articulate in private about how this is a status issue. Neither wish to behind off.
We’re all watchful to see who will blink first, as it will be a cracker of a Deepavali 2016 in Kollywood.
