We have three movies that are nearly confirmed for the Deepavali 2016 race in Kollywood. There could be changes as we approach the festival week but the movies that are confirmed have even used the release dates in the promo.
1. Kashmora – This grand movie starring Karthi , Nayanthara and Sridivya is long due since last 2+ years. It is one of the dream projects for Karthi for sure. The director Gokul is comparatively new comer as he has done just one movie before this (Idharku thane asaipattai rajakumara starring Vijay sethupathi) The producers are dream warrior productions, the same company that produced recently acclaimed Joker movie
The first look poster of the movie is very different and the get up for Karthi is very appealing, though it remembers kattapa of Bahubali for few folks, it is to be remembered that Kashmora story and the look of Karthi was decided before even his last two movies and which is around 2013. That is around 2+ years ago (source: as per the recent interview from Karthi)
2.Kodi – Starring Dhanush and Trisha. The pair has been missing lot of opportunities to work together in the past and it happened finally in this movie. The movie was completed long ago and finally ready for release by the producers Escape artists Madhan, who released Thoongavanam last Deepavali 2015. Kodi is a political action movie and Dhanush is seen as a young politician from the promotional posters
3.Kathisanda – Vishal and Tamannaah starrer. Also has Vadivelu and Soori playing important roles. Both Vadivelu and Soori were seen in the all promotional posters. It is considered as a comeback film for Vadivelu (after working with Vishal closely in the nadigar sangam elections)
All three movies are having titles beginning in “K” so Kollywood is in “K” fever this Deepavali
Let us see which “K” wins the Deepavali race this year.
(This post will be updated if any changes to the Deepavali 2016 releases)
