Unlike Diwali last year, on this year's pongal festival the moviegoers will have so many options to select from.
Suriya's Thaana Serntha Kootam has announced pongal release long time ago. The Vignesh Shvin directorial movie has completed its censor formalities recently and the makers have announced the release date as 12th January.
Other films in the pongal race are Vikram's Sketch, Prabhudeva's Gulebakavali, Arvind Swamy starrer Bhaskar Oru Rascal, Shanmuga Pandian's Maduraveeran and Vimal's Mannar Vagaiyara.
Also Udhayanithi Stalin's Nimir which was censored U by the censor board yesterday, will likely join the pongal race if either Thaana Serntha Kootam or Sketch opt out of Pongal race.
