A hot buzz about Ilayathalapathy's Kaththi has been going around all day. According to buzz the film is expected to release four days before Diwali to ensure the film gets a solo release.
There is also a buzz that one set of distributors have asked the team to release the film on 17th October to facilitate huge collections. There is no official confirmation if the Kaththi team have accepted this preponement.
As far as things stand the film is officially slated for release on October 22nd, It's worth mentioning that Thuppakki was first scheduled for release on November 9 ( four days before diwali) but hit the screens on Diwali day November 13, 2012. There is also unconfirmed reports that the Kaththi trailer will be unveiled on Saturday/Sunday this weekend.
The film's first copy is expected to be ready by 10-12 October and likely to be censored before 15 October. Promotional activities have commenced with "Kaththi" team having released the film's official 3D game for the Android and Windows versions. The game has received good response from the fans and has reportedly fetched maximum number of downloads. Following the success, "Kaththi" makers are planning to release an iOS version of the game as well as the 2D version.
"Kaththi" is one of the most-awaited Tamil films of the year as Vijay and director Murugadoss have teamed up for the second time post the success of their 2012-release "Thuppakki."
Vijay will reportedly be appearing in dual roles in the film, while Samantha plays the female lead. Bollywood actor Neil Nithin Mukesh, Bengali actor Tota Roy and comedian Sathish are also part of the film's cast.
The Vijay starrer is confirmed for a Diwali release and is set for big openings on the first day. Although "Kaththi" will be clashing with Vishal's "Poojai," the action thriller flick is expected to dominate the screens across Tamil Nadu.
Diwali has proved to be a lucky period for Vijay with many of his past releases including "Thuppakki," "Sivakasi" and "Thirumalai" having turned out to be successful films. It will be interesting to see how "Kaththi" fares at the box office.
The Telugu version of the film is also expected to have a simultaneous release with the Tamil version. Tagore Madhu has reportedly acquired the Telugu dubbing rights of the film. The audio launch of the Telugu dubbed version is expected to happen soon.
