This Diwali will not restrict the fireworks to the streets. Indeed, our stars are taking it to the Box Office. Well, Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Surya are heading for a biggest battle of their lives. The superstars are clashing at the BO with their forthcoming movies, Velayudham and 7aam Arivu.
Vijay's Velayudham banks on action quotient
Vijay's recent years have not been fruitful for him. Out of five movies, he managed to deliver a single average hit. His last movie Kaavalan was the only movie, which did decent business at the Box Office. However, the actor seems to have recovered from his series of flops after the moderate success for his last movie and signed Velayudham. As the trailer says, it is a heroism flick and it is undoubtedly the highlight of the film,which will surely pull the audience to the theatres. He is banking on the action quotient of the forthcoming film.
Surya starrer 7aam Arivu: Strength lies in the story
Surya, who made his debut in Nerrukku Ner which also featured Vijay, has not seen flops in the recent years, which has really given him a lot of confidence in him. Like Velayduham, 7aam Arivu has also generated a huge hype because it is coming together of AR Murugadoss and Surya, who delivered blockbuster Ghajini in 2005. Though, the movie is not a regular genre film, yet it has all the masala ingredients like love, action and romance. The major highlight of the movie is that it is a superhero film, which also shows the Tamil connection with China. The actor's chiseled body and new avatar of a monk are the other interesting parts of the movie, which will surely give a tough competition to Vijay's movie.
Who will have the last laugh?
Though, Vijay and Surya are not rivals, yet it goes without saying that the fate of the films fill prove their supremacy in the Kollywood. However, 7aam Arivu producer Udhayanidhi Stalin, who is reportedly not in good terms with Illyapathy, has tried to convince the fans that there is no battle between the two stars and he is interested to watch Velayudham on the release day. Well, who will have the last laugh. Only time can tell. Isn't ?
