The makers of Silambarasan's multi-starrer Vaanam, which is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Vedam, are planning to release the movie on April 08. The movie bosses thinks that it would be a right move to release the film during summer holidays. The movie boasts of an impressive star-cast such as Simbu, Anushka Shetty, Bharath, Prakash Raj etc.
On the other hand, Dhanush's Mappillai is the remake of Rajinikanth's yesteryear film with the same name. Even, Mappillai bosses reckon that the World Cup fever would be over by April 2 and considering summer holidays, it would be the best time to release the film. The movie stars Dhanush, Hansika Motwani and Manisha Koirala in the lead roles.
Coming back to the stories, Vaanam is an inter-woven of five different stories. The movie is not a typical hero-oriented film and it revolves around each and every lead actors of the film. Whereas, Mappillai is a stereotypic film, which revolves around three characters. It is a tried and tested story.
