It seems like December 21 is a very lucrative date for filmmakers. After Yash’s KGF and Dhanush’s Maari 2, now Sivakarthikeyan’s Kanaa has joined the list of films releasing that week, and will take on Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero at the ticket windows. While SRK’s larger-than-life film will enjoy a free run at the northern circuits, it seems that it will be difficult for it to survive in the southern market. In fact, if we look at the bigger picture, due to clutter of these big ticket films, the business of individual films might get affected on a larger level.
Talking about Sivakarthikeyan’s Kanaa, the Arunraja Kamaraj directorial venture is a cricket-based story and will have Aishwarya Rajesh playing an aspiring cricketer, who is fighting all odds to play the sport. Interestingly, Kanaa will mark the debut of actor Sivakarthikeyan as producer who is a very close friend of director Arunraja Kamaraju. Besides Aishwarya Rajesh and Sathyaraj, Kanaa also stars Darshan, Ilavarasu, Munishkanth among others.
On the other hand, in Maari 2, Dhanush returns as the stylish dreaded gangster and with charm of Sai Pallavi, we are expecting the film to open to packed houses at the box office. Yash’s KGF has already garnered immense buzz with its two powerful trailers and we hope that the audience will flock to enjoy this period-crime drama in cinema halls. So, while it’s a battle between all biggies at the box office, it’s a bonanza for us as movie buffs. So, out of these, which is your pick for the Christmas weekend? Tweet to us…
