It’s Mersal Diwali for all Vijay fans!
Despite the ongoing theatre crisis, there will be no stopping Mersal from releasing This Diwali. The exhibitors had pulled out the Tamil version of Dulquer Salmaan’s Solo from the theatres, but Vijay’s movie is scheduled to release on the date as it was planned.
It has also got a U/A certificate from the Censor Board. Even the runtime for the movie has been revealed, which is kind of a concern, since the movie is running nearly three hours. Well, the actual runtime is two hours 47 minutes.
Mersal was also in trouble recently for the title. According to a report in a leading channel, Sri Thenandal Films had allegedly used the the title Mersal without registering it as per a petition filed at the Chennai court.
The petitioner wanted to put a stop to the movie promotions, as he claimed that he had registered the title in 2014. The court had even put a temporary ban on the film’s promotional activities until October 3rd, but now it looks like all is well. So Diwali it is!
The teaser and the trailer has been well-received by the fans of Vijay. While we don’t know whether he really plays a triple role in the movie, his seemingly triple act has bowled over the fans. He reportedly plays three characters – that of a Jallikattu player, a doctor and magician. In less than 24 hours the teaser clocked in a record-breaking one crore views on YouTube.
Mersal has three leading ladies in Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen. The film’s music has been composed by AR Rahman. The music has already been given a thumbs up by fans. It was launched in a grand function where the musical maestro performed live.
Mersal is directed by Atlee, who made last year’s blockbuster Theri that also starred Vijay in the lead.
