With mega budget movies and big-ticket stars taking centre stage, last year was eventful as far as Tamil cinema is concerned. Now that 2015 is history, let's have a look at what 2016 might bring to the table for all Tamil movie buffs.
The year, after starting on a good note (with the release of Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam), has so much more to offer as films like Superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali and 'Ilayathalapathy' Vijay's Theri will release before the end of 2016.
Not to forget the possibility of 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's Viswaroopam 2 making it to the silver screen and 2016 already has a handful of substantial projects.
But for now, January 14th might be the date to look out for as many interesting flicks are lined up to hit the big screen on the festival day.
To start off with, Bala's Tharai Thappattai and Sivakarthikeyan's Rajini Murugan are heading straight for a January 14th release. However, movies like Gethu (starring Udhayanidhi Stalin and Amy Jackson), Aranmanai 2 (starring Siddharth, Trisha and Hansika) and Vishal's Kathakali might also join the Pongal race.
Apart from the above mentioned flicks, Madhavan's Irudhi Suttru and Simbu's Idhu Namma Aalu might also find a release date this month.
