Director - Trivikram Srinivas

Star Cast - Pawan Kalyan, Keerthy Suresh, Anu Emmanuel, Rao Ramesh, Khushboo, Boman Irani, Murli Sharma

Release date - 10th January 2018 


It is an established fact in Telugu states, that Power star Pawan Kalyan’s films make it to the most awaited list regardless of other details. However, Pawan Kalyan - Trivikram’s third collaboration ‘Agnyathavasi’ has a special reason for the anticipation. The film marks Pawan’s milestone as the 25th movie and when combined with the magic of Trivikram’s writing, it is sure to be a chart buster. Adding to this enigma, is Anirudh Ravichander’s music which is already a trending playlist among listeners.

All these details and other easter eggs in the film make it one of the most awaited films of 2018

Robo 2.0

Director - S.Shankar

Star Cast - Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson

Release Date - April 27th

Robo 2.0 is humongous for more than one reason and the only film that can potentially nab the Bahubali record. To start off, the film is being made on a budget of whopping 450 crore which is the highest for any Indian film in history. (Budgets of Bahubali 1 - 180 crore, Bahubali 2 - 250 crores). The team of ace veterans Rajnikanth - S.Shankar and A.R.Rahman who whipped out some of the biggest blockbusters of South Indian cinema are coming together after ‘Shivaji’ and ‘Enthiran’. While these factors make Robo 2.0 one of the most awaited films of 2018, Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson have just become icing on the cake.

Several theatres across Tamilnadu are being refurbished with 3D technology and the theatre owners have been called for a session to gain training and insights on the future of 3D expansion. Though only 100 theatres in Tamilnadu are 3D ready, 400 other theatres are keen on upgrading to 3D to cash in on a possible blockbuster like Robo 2.0.!
