The jamboree just got bigger! The Pongal of 2014 will see not one or two but three big films hitting the marquee down south. If Vijay’s Jilla, Ajith’s Veeram have already been confirmed for the Pongal release, giving them a run for their money would be the superstar Rajinikanth’s visual marvel Kochadaiiyaan.
Yes, Kochadaiiyaan is expected to enthrall the audiences on Pongal. Reportedly, the release date January 10, 2014, is almost final. The film, directed by Rajinikanth’s younger daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin, is a big-budget film, and marks the comeback of Thalaaivar after his blockbuster Enthiran (Robot) in 2010. The first trailer of the film is already out and received a tremendous response from the fans.
While Kochadaiiyaan is backed by a star like Rajinikanth, the competition is still tough at the BO because Vijay and Ajith also boast of a strong fan base and have a strong connect with the youth. The first look of Vijay’s Jilla released on Diwali was loved by all. The movie also stars the Malayalam superstar Mohanlal.
Moving on to Ajith now, the star, known for his impeccable stylish look, has just delivered a superhit Aarambam. The movie roared at the BO with a record Rs 9.5 crore opening, and is still minting money. Trade analysts claim that Ajith is among the few southern stars who have always managed to give a good opening day collection. His fans are already going gaga over the teaser trailer of his Veeram, released a few days back.
It seems the audiences are up for a big treat during Pongal season in January. Kamal Haasan’s Viswaroopam 2 might also see the light of the day on January 26.
Which movie will win big is solely dependent on the viewers.
