According to a new rule imposed by the Tamil Film Producers Council, only small budget films can be released on the first and third Fridays of the month. On November 16, which is the third Friday, the TFPC has permitted the release of four movies – Sei, Uththravu Maharaja, Kaatrin Mozhi and Chithiram Pesuthadi 2.

While the four films are gearing up for release, news surfaced that Vijay Antony’s Thimiru Pudichavan will also be out at the theatres on the same day. This film was supposed to be a Diwali release but was postponed for various reasons.

Being a high budget film, the TFPC hasn’t given clearance for Thimiru Pudichavan to release on November 16 as it would affect the prospects of other movies at the box office.
