Vijay TV has bagged the television rights of Mani Ratnam's Kadal. The television channel had signed a two-film deal with Gemini Film Circuit, and Kadal and Vijay's blockbuster Thuppakki have been acquired by the channel in the package deal.
The price of television rights has not been revealed and it is believed that Vijay TV could have paid a huge amount, as there were good response for both Vijay's Thuppakki and Kadal. It has to be noted that in the recent years, the television channel has started bagging biggies, and last year's Nanban was one among them.
Kadal will hit the screens on February 1 worldwide in Tamil and Telugu versions. It marks the debut of Gautham, the son of actor Karthik, and Thulasi Nair, the daughter of actress Radha. Arjun Sarja, Arvind Swamy and Lakshmi Manchu are in important roles. The movie is all about good versus evil. It narrates the story of an individual caught between sin and redemption.
The audio composed by Oscar Award winner has impressed the audience and has created more hype on Kadal. The film has seven songs and 'Adiye', 'Nenjukkulle', 'Moongil Thottam' and 'Anbin Vaasale' have got thumbs up from Tamil audience.
