Going by the latest report, Ilayathalapathy Vijay's upcoming movie Theri may have a massive release, with the worldwide screen count exceeding the 2000 mark.
Likely to hit more than 2000 theatres on April 14th, the Atlee
directed entertainer will also have a simultaneous release in
Telugu as Policeodu.
Reportedly, Theri might not only enjoy a solo release
in its home state Tamil Nadu, but also in its neighbouring state
Thanks to Vijay's incredible popularity in God's own country,
many Malayalam films are likely to be pushed to a later date, that
were earlier scheduled to release on April 14th.
Even megastar Mammootty's White has been postponed,
owing to Theri's extensive release in Kerala. As reported
earlier, the Kerala theatrical rights of the film has been bagged
by Friday Film House for a record price of 5.6 Crore
'Dil' Raju, the distributor in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana,
will look to release the Vijay-Samantha-Amy starrer in maximum
number of screens, according to a report.
Also, the fact that no straight Telugu movie is scheduled to hit
the big screen on April 14th, makes life easier for the Telugu
version of Theri. The audio launch of Policeodu
is all set to take place on April 6th.
In Karnataka, Goldie Films will be releasing the movie. Since
Karnataka has a reliable market for all big Tamil releases,
Theri too, is expected to do well there.
Yet again, the action entertainer will enjoy a near solo release
as no major Kannada movie has been planned for an April 14th
In Tamil Nadu too, many theatres are reportedly planning to
allot maximum number of screens to Theri.
Cine Galaxy, which will be releasing Theri in the
United States of America, might organize a premiere show on April
13th, in order to cash in on the excitement.
