With everybody's attention on Kaththi, it is almost
safe to say that Vishal starrer Poojai which is also set
to release this Diwali is almost forgotten by movie buffs. Yet, the
movie is said to have made good business so far with the tickets
being sold at rapid pace despite the rain God showing no mercy for
the past two days.
It is also said that the movie is set to be screened over 1200
theatres worldwide and is expected to do particularly well in
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana considering the lead pair of the movie
who are rather popular in those states.
Meanwhile, with Kaththi still receiving threats from
various Tamil groups, it is not yet a sure shot release for this
Diwali in Tamil Nadu. If at all the protesting groups manage to
keep Kaththi out of cinema halls on the Diwali day, then
Poojai will find it easier to make its producers happy on
the auspicious day.
Poojai is directed by Hari of Singam fame and
the music is scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Cinematography has been
handled by Priyan and editing has been done by V. T. Vijayan.
