Now that Mani Ratnam has announced that he will release Kadal in the month of November, the curtain has now been raised for a tough Box Office fight. Though it can't be said that his film will slug it out with Vijay's Thuppakki (also to be dubbed and released in Telugu) and Vaalu, a close release is very much possible.
Starring debutants and star kids Gautham Karthik and Tulasi Nair, 'Kadal', as the title suggests is set on the fisher folk and their encounters in the seas. (The Telugu title is yet to be announced). Tulasi is playing her age in the film. Both the actors' faces have so far been guarded from the media.
Music is by AR Rahman. Being a romantic film made by Mani Ratnam after many years, expectations from his fans are naturally high.
