Chennai, Dec 4 (): Karthi’s Biriyani, which was expected to release for Pongal, will be released early. The movie is all set to release on 20 December. Briyani is dubbed in Telugu too and the makers have finalized the release of both the Tamil and Telugu versions on the same date.
Produced by K. E. Gnanavel Raja under Studio Green banner and directed by Venkat Prabhu, Biriyani is one of the most-awaited films of the year.
Biriyani is a comedy thriller film, which stars Karthi and Hansika Motwani in lead roles, whereas Premgi Amaren, Mandy Thakar and Ramki will appear in pivotal roles.
As actor Karthi has faced some failure movies through his past releases, Biriyani is expected to revive the actor’s slugging career. Karthi’s last release “All in All Azhaguraja” directed by Rajesh did not do well at the box office as expected. Also, Karthi’s 2013 Pongal release, “Alex Pandian” also did not do up to the mark at the box office.
The first look teaser of Biriyan that was launched on 25 May to coincide with the actor’s birthday has attracted the masses heavilly, getting more than 30,000 viewers on YouTube within hours of uploading it. So, Biriyani is expected to be a good turning point for Karthi.
Moreover, Briyani gives way to Venkat Prbahu to return to direction after a span of more than two and a half years when his last film, “Mankatha”, starring Ajith and Arjun, was released. This is the first time Venkat Prbahu has teamed up with Karthi.
The censor formalities of the movie are also finished. Expectations are quite high on the Tamil version while the Telugu version is also expected to do well in Andhra, as Karthi has had impressive hits in Tollywood circuits earlier.
The entertainer marks the 100th musical album of Yuvan Shankar Raja. Sources from Studio Green say they have planned to launch the audio of Tamil and Telugu versions by this week.
