Well, Modi’s demonetisation move has affected every movie release so far. The latest movie to push its release to a later date is Suriya’s much awaited Singham 3. Yes, Singham 3 that was all set for a grand release on 16th December will not hits theatres on 23rd December. Does that mean, Suriya‘s Singam 3 will clash with Hansika’s Bogan? Well, that will happen only if now Bogan doesn’t push its release either. But one thing is for sure, it will clash with Aamir Khan’s Dangal! Singam 3 is third installment of the popular co actioner series. The movie also stars Shruti Haasan and Anushka Shetty. From the looks of the teaser, it promises to be a high octane actioner with punch dialogues and epic action sequences. The teaser has already crossed 8M views. Within 24 hours, the teaser had created a storm. Fnas were thrilled to see Suriya in his signature avatar with his trademark handlebar moustache. He looked he was going to kick some but. This time, Suriya will have a face off with Thakur Anup Singh. The Tv star will make his Tamil debut with this film. Nothing about the villain has been revealed yet, so we can expect some surprises there. Too bad, we have to wait another week from its release. But ever since Modi’s demonetisation move, many movies have delayed its release.
Vishal’s Kaththi Sandai that was to release in November will now release only in January 2017. Ram Charan’s Dhruva was to release on December 2 but now is set for a grand release on December 9. Dhruva is another cop drama. In a way, it’s good for both cop movies, that they will have a gap of 15 days., like earlier. ( Dec 2 vs Dec 16) Both actioners will now possibly receive equal limelight. Vijay Anthony’s film that was to release on November 17 but it hit theatres just yesterday. Except for Kajal Agarwal’s Kavalai Vendam, all movies had postponed their release dates, considering how badly hit theatres in B and C markets were. Considering there was no provisions for online bookings, cinema halls hardly saw any attendance, which led to poor collections. The one movie that may have benefitted in this situation is Simbu’s Achcham Yenbadhu Madamiayada. Considering all the theatres in Chennai city made provision for online booking, it saw some impressive collections, but the B&C markets saw a poor turnout all the same.
Here’s hoping by the time Singam 3 releases, the demonetisation situation returns to normalcy.
