Amidst all the drama, is Suriya's Si3 releasing at the right time?
Si3 (aka) S3 (aka) Singam 3, the third film in the Singam franchise, has got to be Suriya's most delayed project yet, considering the fact that the movie's release was postponed several times due to various external factors. Initially, it was cited that problems with the censor board led to the postponement of the movie. Later came the Vardah storm, which was soon followed by Jallikattu protests. Whenever the makers fixed a release date, people's attention was on something more critical, and the makers had to postpone the release.
The movie is finally slated for release tomorrow, but the breaking political developments in Tamil Nadu have created huge unrest among the common people and it'd be interesting to see how the movie opens at the box office tomorrow. Being a biggie, the opening weekend is very crucial for the movie's commercial success. On the other hand, good word of mouth can bring in the family audience to the theatres, who might see it as a welcome relief amidst all the high-profile developments in the state.
