THE GREAT TAMIL SUMMER!
What with the insanely soaring mercury levels threatening to shrivel us up, there might be respite in the form of entertainment after all. Albeit not hugely impressive, the line up of releases are diverse and might just fit the bill rightly if you are looking to kill time during one of those terribly hot mid-summer afternoons. Possible summer releases this year include Rettaisuzhi, Sura, Irumbu kottai Murattu Singam (IKMS), Guru Shishyan, Kutti Pisaasu and Madrasapattinam.

Although the movie traces the lives and times of two village friends who share extremely different interests, the target of Rettaisuzhi, releasing on the 23rd of April, is most likely kids. For the movie also has a bunch of kids playing significant roles. Two legends of Tamil cinema Balachander and Bharathiraja play the friends whose friendship, squabbles and other extremities form the crux of the movie. And to fuel the fire, there is also a romantic angle in the movie with Anjali playing the girl in question. Rettaisuzhi is directed by writer Tamira and produced by Shankar’s S pictures.

Before we forget Vettaikaran for Anushka and its songs, Vijay’s back with Sura. He has the sensational Tamannah to woo this time and the fact that the songs are already a rage among his
 
fans is the catch here. Inside sources who watched the promo clips swear by Vijay’s dance to the racy songs tuned by Mani Sharma. And what about the rest? Well there’s Vijay, there is Tamannah. What else you need anyways? April 30 is set as the release date for Sura.

Tamil’s first cowboy movie IKMS is releasing on May 7. Directed by the talented Simbudevan whose ground breaking Imsai Arasan set benchmarks for historical comedies, IKMS will have Lawrence romancing a bevy of beauties including Sandhya, Padmapriya and Lakshmi Rai. Not much is available on the movie’s plot, but it’s expected to be a comedy served with a generous serving of romance.

The boisterous Sathyaraj takes on the aspiring mass hero Sundar C in Guru Sishyan that is likely to hit the screens on May 7. Sundar mends Sathyaraj’s ways, who is cast as a big time flirt (like you even needed to tell this) married to Sundar’s sister. Once famous for movies like Aadi Velli and Durga, Rama Narayanan is back in business with Kutty Pissasu this summer. This being his 120th film, the target audience is children. There is said to be computer graphics for the major portion of the movie that has Sangeetha and Riyaz Khan playing pivotal roles apart from the quintessential kids.

The period romantic drama Madrasapattinam will be released sometime in May and is directed by Vijay whose Kireedam and Poi Solla Porom were branded as promising ventures. The dreamy-eyed Arya plays the desi boy who falls in love with a white woman. Something that’s not seen in a while in Tamil cinema, probably after Naadodi Thendral.

So pick your choice from the kids’ specials, comic capers or period love saga and have your share of the Kollywood summer bonanza.
