Thanga Meengal & Ponmaalai Pozhudhu opt out of July 26 race!


Trade sources have indicated that there will not be a clash on July 26. Earlier we had reported that four films -  Pattathu Yaanai, Ponmaalai Pozhudhu, Sonna Puriyaadhu and Thanga Meengal were due on July 26.

However it proved to be difficult due to acute shortage of screens. Now unofficial sources say Ponmalai Pozhudhu and Thanga Meengal have withdrawn from the release battle. They have now decided to try their luck after Vijay’s Thalaivaa releases in August.

The buzz is that the two small films just could not get theatres which preferred the mass action comedy Vishal’s Pattathu Yaanai and Shiva’s comedy riot Sonna Puriyathu. Added to that Suriya’s Singam 2 turned out to be a hit and will hold on to some screens and Dhanush’s Maryan releasing on July 19 will surely occupy releasing screens in its second week.

Actually theatre availability position is very bad and even Pattathu Yaanai and Sonna Puriyathu are finding it difficult to get confirmed screens.

Bharathbala has taken trouble over Maryan ‘s sound, which is important for storytelling. 

He has chosen the 11.1 channel based Auro 3D sound that is supposed to be superior to its rival, as it captures height based sounds.

Maryan will be mixed in the Auro 3D technology as the film’s sound needed it. Remember the film is set in three different milieus- fishing village and feel of ocean surface, deep in desert and underwater scenes. The Auro mixing is supposed to be fantastic.

Maryan sound was mixed at AR Rahman’s AM Studios which has signed an agreement with Barco to enhance its audio post- production. 27 screens in Tamil Nadu are said to have Auro by Barco system.

Latest on Shankar’s Ai


First and foremost all these days the media was referring to Shankar’s next extravaganza as I. Now Shankar in his latest blog says its Ai and he has been shooting for it for the past one year.

Shankar says that it is taking time shooting Ai  due to technical reasons abnd Vikram’s  physical change, scanning, moulding and for preparing prosthetic make up materials.

In May, Shankar had visited Weta Workshop, New Zealand and met Richard Taylor, the co-founder of Weta, and other artists and technicians. What Shankar liked about Richard Taylor is that he is very creative and is more interested in creative work than talking business

Shankar said: “ I had storming sessions regarding the look of Vikram and others in ‘Ai’. They took me through the whole Weta Workshop and I was amazed to know all the stunning visuals, makeup and props which I saw in the recent year’s movies are done by Weta.  I had the same excitement when I visited Stan Winston Studios, US for Enthiran.”

On the shooting schedule of Ai, Shankar updated: “In June we had a three week schedule that happened in Bangalore, Mysore and Chennai. An eye riveting make up for Vikram was done by Sean Foot and Davina Lamont, and Vikram proved he’s a great actor once again. Now we’ve completed 75% of the movie and going for the next schedule in a couple of days”.

Clearing the rumours about Mamtha Mohandas playing Lal's love interests in the new Priyadharshan  movie on production 'Geethanjali', close sources to the director maintains that Lal will not have any heroine in the entire movie.

He will play another role , just like his Dr Sunny in Manichithrathaazhu, where he was called into clearing a confusing psychological issue.  Interestingly Lal's character will only appear by the point of interval as in 'Manichithrataazhu'. The chances of Shobhana appearing for a single scene cameo also has been ruled out.

Keerthi , the daughter of producer Suresh Kumar and actress Menaka will be in the female lead but will pair up with an young actor.

Is It Wrong to Depict Basavanna With a Sword?

After the controversy over the poster with a pistol, the second look posters of Basavanna with Upendra holding a sword has turned into another controversy. The film's shooting started earlier this week in Mysore. Producer CR Mohanor tried to clear the controversy saying, "The movie is based on rowdyism. It is like the film Om, which Upendra directed. Let it not become controversial just because of the title. Basavanna is just the name of the character in the film. I do not want to get publicity out of controversies. If the film is good, the audience will watch it otherwise the film will not run and the audience will reject it."


Basavanna, according to Mohanar is just the name of a character in the movie and nothing to do with the 12th century social reformer. In 1996, the then chief minister JH Patel inaugurated the statue of Basavanna in the Chalukya Circle in Bangalore. Basavanna is depicted as a warrior wearing a sword on his waist. As a minister under the Kalachuri king, Basavanna has been depicted wearing a sword. But however, controversy is being created for a film character with the same name using a sword.

The shooting for the film has commenced and is underway in Mysore. We had planned to shoot the movie in Sweden and other European locations. But after checking out the locations, we felt that it would not suit shooting fight sequences there. The fight sequences will be shot in Thailand.
