Among all the Pongal releases in Tamilnadu, Siva Karthikeyan's "Rajni Murugan" got the blockbuster talk, while Vishal's "Kathakali" followed it. Surprisingy it is Vishal's "Kathakali" that is fetching more collections that Rajni Muruguan and that explains his mass power there. Vsihal's Kathakali Telugu version is actually said to be releasing on January 22nd only. However, the film hasn't hit screens due to the Pongal rush of Telugu films at Telugu box office. Now that Kathakali got a blockbuster talk in Kollywood, makers are trying to release the Telugu version on January 22nd itself.
Directed by Pandiraj, Kathakali features Vishal and Catherine Tresa in the leads.
