August 2012 is a busy month for film enthusiasts. That said, this month has already seen 15 films till August 15th and 8 more are expected by the end of this month. A similar trend happened in August 2011 too.

A series of small budget films like Doo, Potta Potti, Rowthiram, Vengayam, Pulivesham and many more released in August 2011. Though most of the film bombed at the box office, a couple of films like Rowthiram and Potta Potti were the average runners.

Similarly, most of the films released till now, in August this year, have witnessed a below average performance at the box-office. Comparatively, Mirattal has been the first choice due to the presence of Santhanam and also perhaps due to the lack of good choices. Now Attakathi, yet another small budget film, has hit the screens amidst a big hype and it is even gaining decent response.

But it is the August 31st magic we have to look forward to. It was Mankatha in 2011 that hit the screens on this very same day and went on to become a blockbuster. This year, Mysskin’s superhero film Mugamoodi starring Jiiva, is all set to hit the screens on 31st. Can it repeat the magic Mankatha did at the box office?  It’s worth waiting for.
