As speculated earlier, Thala Ajith's upcoming flick Vedalam will swoop its way into thousands of screens all over the world on November 10th and is expected to stay that way, unless the official release date faces a postponement at the last minute.
For now, the much anticipated movie is all set to add glitz and colors to the festival of lights, much to the joy of all Ajith fans. But the latest surmise about the film might dampen their spirits a touch, for it is said that Vedalam might've been inspired by the Mohanlal starrer, Ustaad.
Thanks to some noticeable similarities between the storyline of the 1999 Malayalam film and the already released stills of Vedalam, the upcoming Ajith starrer is believed to have been inspired by Ustaad.
Sample this; Ustaad has Mohanlal playing a don who lives under the cloak of a responsible businessman who doesn't reveal his true identity even to his own sister until he is pulled back into the dark world of mafia after certain turn of events.
Since almost all the stills of Vedalam have so far portrayed Ajith as a don and lovable brother, it might not come across as a surprise if Vedalam turns out to be on the lines of Ustaad.
Interestingly, Rajinikanth's superhit flick Baasha too, had a similar plot and not surprisingly, there were numerous reports in the past that claimed that Vedalam might have a story similar to that of Baasha.
Meanwhile, the film has made it out of the censor board with a clean 'U' which gives Vedalam a great chance of getting itself exempted from entertainment tax in the state of Tamil Nadu.
Also, it is widely believed that online reservations in Chennai will begin this Thursday (November 5th) and that the trailer too, will be released on the same day.

Siva On Vedalam's Comedy Sequences
"Soori plays this film's main comedian and has done a major role. In fact, there are some sequences where he has to fight with Ajith sir. I think that particular scene will be one of the highlights of Vedalam", Siva has said.
Thala Ajith's Encouragement
The Veeram director has also revealed that when Soori initially hesitated to act in the scene in which he has to argue and fight with the Mankatha hero, it was Ajith who came forward and encouraged him to be a part of the scene.
Trailer Release Time
If speculations are to be believed, the much awaited official trailer of Vedalam will be released at the stroke of midnight on November 5th. The length of the trailer is expected to be more than 2 minutes.
It is said that Vedalam will have its world premiere in Germany on November 9th. The film is expected to be released in more than 2800 screens all over the planet.
Profit from the pre-release business of Vedalam is said to be the highest for any Ajith starrer. Expectations from the movie are soaring new heights as it gets closer to its release date.
When Vedalam Became Avesham
Vedalam has been dubbed into Telugu as Avesham. Though it is not sure if the Telugu version will be released on November 10th along with its Tamil counterpart, it is said that it might be released on 20th of this month.
