Diwali Movie Parade - Tamil films releasing for 2010 Diwali

This is a Diwali which has no Rajini or Kamal, Vijay or Ajith, Vikram or Suriya film to light up the theatres. Yet this year's festival has managed a mixture of quality releases. You can't grade this year Diwali releases as a big film or a small film. Size doesn't really matter this Diwali as all the so called small films have hogged the limelight usually given for the so called big films.

There will be five Tamil films releasing for 2010 Diwali. Uthamaputhiran, Mynaa, Va Quarter Cutting, Vallakottai and Chithirapoove.

'Uthamaputhiran' is the only star value film this season, This Dhanush-Genelia starrer is a remake of the super hit Telugu film 'Ready'. Dhanush replaces Ram and Genelia D’Souza repeats her role in Tamil also. Other important actors in the film include K. Bhagyaraj, Aashish Vidhyarthi, Vivek, Mayilsamy, R. Sundarrajan and Jayaprakash.

This is an action comedy without violence for the family. Mithran R. Jawar of Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Kutty has directed Dhanush in this yet another remake.

'Mynaa' is a film that started on a low profile and grew up to be a most wanted film. It has a powerful story with a stunning climax. It is a realistic story of love that blooms between two tribal youngsters. Vidharth from 'Koothu Pattarai' as Suruli and Amala Paul aka Anaka of 'Sindhu Samaveli' as Mynaa have lived their characters. Director Prabhu Solomon who is known by his off-beat films like 'Kokki', 'Lee' and 'Laadam' has done a marvelous job in this film of the soil. Imman's music is another feather in the cap of Mynaa.

'Va-Quarter Cutting' is a night life comedy with a difference. Shiva and SPB Charan who are desperate to taste liquor before going to Saudi Arabia spend all night in search of that experience. The whole story happens from 6pm to 6am and the film has its share of comedy and romance within that 12 hours. Lekha Washington is the female quotient.

The spirited team of Pushkar and Gayathri, GV Prakash and Nirav Shah are also waiting to share the laurels of this film.

'Vallakkottai' is an out and out commercial film from director A Venkatesh. Arjun and Haripriya are the main leads in this masala pot boiler which is a remake of the Malayalam Mammootty movie 'Maayavi'. Vincent Asokan and Ashish Vidyarthi are the baddies. Action has always been the forte of this actor-director combo and Vallakottai is to satisfy action lovers.

Braving the above films will be 'Chithirapoove'. This budget movie has not been given any prime theatre but will record its release. Chithira Poove is about female infanticide, which is prevalent in some dry lands of Tamil Nadu.

It has Sandeep, Thamarai, Vagai Chandrasekar, Sabitha Anand and Singamuthu in the cast. Debutante director Ra. Kalaimurugan has also scored the music for this film.

Happy viewing to all!
