The 48-day long strike that Tamil film fans all over were waiting to end has finally been called off. The Tamil film industry strike due to the standoff between Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and cinema theatres in Tamil Nadu over Virtual Print Fees (VPF) forced filmmakers to push their movies for later. And after 48 days, movies like Kaala, Diya (earlier known as Karu), and others are gearing up for release soon.
Here is a list of Tamil films that you should get totally excited for:
