Will Suriya take on Ajith this Deepavali?
October 09, 2008
With Silambarasan opting out, Deepavali seems to be becoming a two-horse race. Ajith and Suriya are on course for a face-off where sparks should fly. It will be Vaaranam Aayiram vs. Aegan, only if everything goes according to plan. There are apprehensions of Vaaranam Aayiram dropping out for the Deepavali, and releasing two to
three weeks later. The reasons being, International distributors – Ayngaran wanting to avoid a clash of the biggies. Ascar Ravichandran, the producer of Vaaranam Aayiram is also in tune with the idea, since it will give him enough time to market his movie better. A final word on Vaaranam Aayiram is expected to be out in a day or two. For now, Aegan seems all set to hit the screens.

But it looks like both these biggies are not going to have a free run at the box office, if at all they were to make it together. What if Silambattam is missing? Abhiyum Naanum and Seval are ready to make amends for the loss. With Radha Mohan’s stamp all over it, Abhiyum Naanum could well be a dark horse. Remember February 2007, when the rather low key Mozhi had stood firm even in the face of Paruthiveeran. Well, Deepavali 2008 could be another repeat if Abhiyum Naanum is just as good. And, discounting Seval from the race would be foolishness because the man behind it has a record that few others have. Hari is a sure shot hit maker, at least with the rural audiences and he is on familiar ground, he too could walk away from the battlefield proud.

Rewinding to Deepavali 2007. The only person to have a movie for Deepavali 2007 and more likely 2008 is Suriya. He sure has fond memories of 2007 when Vel (a Hari film) had worked well in all centers. Then there was Dhanush with Polladhavan, a runaway success. He wanted to make it this time round too with Padikkadhavan, but missed the bus. Deepavali 2007 will also be remembered for the disappointment of Azhagiya Thamizh Magan. A Vijay dual role, Rahman’s music and the festive season should have ensured a hit, but that was not the case. Finally, one wonders how many people remember about the other releases last Deepavali, Sathyaraj’s Kannamoochi Yenada and Jeevan’s Machakaran.

So, the big question. We have in Deepavali 2008, something similar to last year. Two big stars, one young star and a quiet family movie. Last year, it was Suriya vs. Vijay. Will Suriya take on Ajith this year? What or who will it be this time round? Let the sparks fly.
