Pongal is one of the most special festivals in the state of Tamil Nadu and many filmmakers look forward to release their films during this season. And as always, this year’s Pongal too will witness two big-ticket films locking horns at the box office – Suriya’s ‘Thaana Serndha Koottam’ and Vikram’s ‘Sketch’. The promotional content of both the films have been equally appealing and enthralling, and have kept the Tamil audience excited for the release. The films will hit the screens on January 12th, 2018 worldwide and will tussle it out. Vikram and Suriya are both huge stars in Tamil cinema and enjoy a huge following, which makes it more competitive for the releases.
Suriya’s ‘Thaana Serndha Koottam’ is directed by Vignesh Sivan and is an adaptation of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Special 26’. Director Vignesh Sivan a while ago had said that the film is not a remake and he just retained the core plot of the film, and has built his own narrative to it. The film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Senthil, Keerthy Suresh and veteran actor Karthik in important roles making it a stellar cast. The music album of the film has contributed immensely for the hype around the film which is composed by Anirudh Ravichander. Right from the time the first single, ‘Naana Thaanaa’, was release by the makers, fans of the music composer and actor Suriya have been mighty excited about the films and are eagerly waiting for its release.
Vikram’s ‘Sketch’ is directed by Vijaychander and the core theme of the film is said to be a heist in which Vikram plays the central character. ‘Sketch’ also stars Tamannaah Bhatia as the leading lady and will be her first-time association with the star. The music of the film is composed by Thaman SS who has been having a dream run in the last couple of years. The music, again, has contributed immensely to the film and has kept the fans of the actor excited about the film. Thaman has also come up with a theme for the film names ‘Therichified’ which is mass to the core and has raised the expectations on the film.
