Diwali line-up

print   ·   T  T  

Will Diwali 2007 light up the Kollywood box-office? There have been only two super hits so far this year (“Pokkiri” and “Sivaji”) and the ratio of flops to hits is alarming. Of the six films released yesterday, “Azhagiya Tamil Magan”, “Agra”, “Kannamoochi Yaenada”, , “Machakaran”, “Pollathavan” and “Vel”, “Azhagiya Tamil Magan” is way ahead in the race for advance booking and sale of audios. Another unique aspect of the releases is that Vijay and Surya are playing dual roles in “Azhagiya..” and “Vel” respectively and they have only solo heroines Shriya and Asin. Meanwhile, the trade is hoping that at least two of the Diwali releases will turn out to be hits, to revive the sagging Tamil box-office.
