Bheema Vikram Trisha Stills
It looks like Vikram's long overdue Bheema may make it to the theatres on January 11, 2008 as Pongal release! The date has also a significance that five years back, Dhool the film that made Vikram a superstar was released on the same day!
The grapevine is abuzz that producer A.M Ratnam is in the final round of negotiations with Ayngaran International to swing the deal. Remember it was Ayngaran who released the trailer of the film, which has been appreciated by the audiences.
What really makes Bheema hot, a film which has been two years in production is the current craze for superstar biggies. Vikram is a superstar inspite of not having a release for two years. He commands a terrific opening and if Bheema is marketed like Sivaji or a Billa it stands to make big money for all concerned.
The next Tamil biggie scheduled to release is Kamal Hassan's Dasavatharam, some time in summer of 2008. So the trade is anxious and eager to have a biggie for Pongal, a very good season for Tamil films.
And what better movie than Bheema, which has a superstar, excellent hit music, awesome action, glamour, glitz and packaged slickly by a director with a proven track record for making family entertainers!
