So the big news is that Thala Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal which was earlier slated for a Pongal release will finally hit the silver screen on February 5th. But what's really interesting is that SJ Surya, who was desperate for a date to get his movie Isai on screen has finally found one. It is said that Isai will be released on 30th of January.
Did the fact that SJ Surya shares a good rapport with Ajith help him to zero in on a release date for Isai? The filmmakers of Yennai Arindhaal have not given away the reason behind postponing Yennai Arindhaal yet again. Whether the Vaali director requested Ajith to postpone his movie so that Isai can have a rival free run at least for a week is not known.
Whatever the reason to postpone the Ajith starrer might be, with Dhanush's Anegan confirmed to scorch the screens on February 13th, it will be interesting to see which movie among the three emerges as the winner when it comes to the long run. It is also said that Isai will be released worldwide in more than 300 screens.
Meanwhile, director Gautham's Yennai Arindhaal has been certified as a U/A film by the officials from the Censor Board. The team of Yennai Arindhaal are expected to approach the revising committee as they would like their film to be exempted from tax. It remains to be seen if they can succeed in doing so.
