Probably a decade ago, Tamil films housing established heroes would get the top most priority in terms of screen count and special release dates (festival releases).
Though it is still the same even today, the future looks different, for the trend is slowly changing, and for good.
Welcome to the new age Tamil cinema, where upcoming talented actors and technicians are willing to take the industry by storm, by trusting their scripts and capabilities.
Come October and there will be two instances illustrating what's been said above. First up; Vijay is not afraid to take on Vijay.
Yes, while the release dates of many films were reorganized based on the official release date of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli, the team of Vijay Sethupathi's Naanum Rowdydhaan has stuck to its original release date, October 2nd.
Though a few may argue that the box office collections of both these movies might be affected as they are scheduled to release in the same weekend, the confidence exhibited by the young team of Naanum Rowdydhaan is commendable.
Also, the fact that valuable cinema always triumphs should effectively mean that all the films released during the same time should attain success, if all of them have what it takes to prosper.

Bobby Vs Vikram
On October 21st, promising actor Bobby Simha will take on Chiyaan Vikram at the box office as his film Ko 2 is all set to be released along with the much expected 10 Enradhukulla.
Acting Prowess At Its Best
It should be a treat to all cinegoers during the festival season of Ayudha Pooja as two National Award winners will be locking horns. While one is a veteran, the other is one for the future.
Ko 2 Is Not A Sequel
Director Sarath has confirmed that Ko 2 will not be a sequel to Jiiva's superhit movie Ko. But the team decided to name their film Ko 2 as they felt it would be an apt title.
Produced by Elred Kumar of R S Infotainment, Ko 2 stars Bobby Simha, Prakash Raj, Nikki Galrani and Bala Saravanan in prominent roles. The movie is touted to be a powerful political thriller.
Belief In The Scripts
As mentioned earlier, all these movies might taste success at the box office if their respective contents are powerful enough. Aren't there enough movie buffs in our country to witness more than one good film at a time?
Trade experts believe that this is just the beginning of the future and in the next 5 years, more such interesting clashes is on the cards. Perhaps, a rise in the number of multi-screen theatres is on the cards as well.
