ayan suryaAvatar more or less marks the end of a shaky and capricious year, 2009. It’s ironic that the visually stunning Avatar, undoubtedly the world’s most expensive movie, should release towards the end of a depressing year that shook world economies and reduced some of them into rubble. Nevertheless, it’s being raved by critics and viewers and may well usher 2010 in style while still ruling the box office collections all over the world. For after all, it’s just not enough you watch it once and almost all reviews seem to suggest to watch it a couple of times to relish the detailing of the fluorescent, endearing Na’vis that make Avatar what it is.


The prospects of releasing another Tamil movie during the same weekend might not be the brightest of ideas. But if it’s a Vijay starrer, Vettaikaran, chances are that it might override all influences and emerge unscathed; if not in the cities, at least in the other less prominent centers.

With that, it’s time for stocktaking for we have reached the fag end of yet another almost uneventful year in Tamil movies.


Notwithstanding a few real-good Indie gems, this year is also mostly devoid of any hits. The only blockbuster of the year remained Surya’s Ayan that released during the beginning of the year although his Aadhavan also topped collection lists all over.
