It may sound shocking but from May 1, 2010 no new releases in other languages (Tamil, Hindi, and English) will be allowed in Kerala simultaneously with the all India release.

.

Film Distributors Association Kerala (FDAK) has decided to implement this controversial decision to clip the wings of other language films (OLF) in Kerala.

.

Remember in the last few months films like Avatar, 2012, Vinnayithaandi Varuvaaya, Vettaikaran, 3 Idiots, My Name Is Khan has done fantastic business in Kerala.

.

For example if a Tamil film like Vijay’s Sura is to release worldwide on May 1, it cannot release simultaneously in Kerala! As per the new order of FDAK, OLF can release in Kerala only two weeks after its worldwide release. It smacks of protectionism, and a subtle effort to scuttle the popularity of OLF in Kerala.

Vijay’s 50th film – Sura **stills** (Updated – trailers) March 19, 2010

God! even the choreography is same as for Bommali. I am so disappointed with the lazy job that Mani Sharma has done for this 😦 I am considering not going to see this.
