National award-winning director Pandiraj has had a winning streak in Kollywood. With his recent films Kathakali and Pasanga 2 declared as hits, Pandiraj is one of the most sought after filmmakers in Tamil cinema. However, it is no secret that the director’s film Idhu Namma Aalu has been stuck in the cans for a while now.
There has been a positive buzz around the movie ever since it was announced. The trailer of the film was unveiled recently and it has only generated more curiosity among film buffs. So, what makes this one of the most-awaited films of the year? It is simple. The film stars ex-flames – Simbu and Nayanthara. This is the first time they have reunited for a film after their break up. The film is touted to be a breezy romantic entertainer.
The Reason For The Delay
The film has been delayed for over a year. According to Pandiraj, the film was completed in January 2015. At first it was reported that Simbu turned out late for the shoot and hence cause the delay in wrapping up the film. Later it was stated that Nayanthara‘s spat with Simbu caused the problem. The music composer of the film Kural Arasan accused the director of deliberately delaying the release as he was not happy with the songs of the film. But, if reports are to believed, the real reason for the delay was the film’s producers’ financial troubles.
A Ray of Hope
The latest buzz in Kollywood is that the satellite rights of the film have been bagged by a leading television channel, and a popular production house is planning to release the film. Currently, the film is said to release on March 25th. We hope that the film clears all obstacles and releases without any further trouble.
