Anniyan On The Way

It looks like producer 'Oscar' Ravichandran's claim on Anniyan's release date may be more credible this time around. He had earlier 'confirmed' the eagerly anticipated film's worldwide release on May 20 only to have Vikram state later that the movie will release on May 27 and if not, definitely by June 4! According to Ravichandran, the confirmed release date is now June 10. IMC6 too has listed the show timings starting June 10(with the possibility of earlier preview shows) in its Coming Soon section and says that online bookings will start "any moment".

The trailer has whetter my appetite for the film and I am definitely one of those eagerly awaiting Anniyan's arrival. Lets see if atleast this release date stays the same. If not, I guess we could call Ravichandran the producer who cried "Anniyan"!

wow....has shanker's imagination dried up so fast! Anniyan is the same vigilante with a social agenda with a police officer on his trail formula.

I've lost interest on Anniyan ever since it was announced. No ARR is the biggest loss for shankar and the audio sales shows this. I'm a great fan of shankar & his movies, i know he will do a good job in song picturisation but i'm not sure that alone is enough to make a hit movie considering the big budget and the old wine in a new bottle story.
After watching the trailor, i can say it's a big dissapointment. Only time will tell.

Bladehawk, I agree that ARR would be missed.. but I felt that, compared to the earliest films of Shankar, the quality of music in the recent films was not all that good.. And ARR, after 2001, is off-color. Remember this is a movie where Shankar has to prove himself all-over again.. So, he would put all his experience, thinking and talent into it.. I am eagerly looking forward to it//

Lets hope that Anniyan isn't all style with little or no substance. The way to make a great movie is by giving importance to consistency in screenplay (assuming there is a screenplay in the first place) and dialogue first before adding good art design and stunts to complement the former duo. All I have heard about this movie so far is how much money has been spent on lavish sets and stunts, etc. I don't want to give off a negative vibe here...but since Indians (in India) so closely tie cinema to a primary form of entertainment, I can't help but wonder what people affected by the Tsunami would feel about the budget for such a movie.
