Viswasam is an upcoming Tamil film starring Thala Ajith and directed by Siva who will be making his fourth film with Ajith. Veeram, Vedalam and Vivegam are the first three films Siva made with Ajith and all of them are blockbuster success but Vivegam which was not received very well by the audience. Shooting of Viswasam will commence from 22 February 2018 and end sometime in July. Plot details of the Viswasam is not out yet but it will certainly be a thriller drama which is essentially Siva’s trademark with Ajith.
The collaboration between two of them has been very fruitful and Viswasam will see a release on Diwali 2018. After the shooting ends in July, makers will have three months of post production time to gett he film together and for an Ajith film they do not have to market. All makers need to do is put out a poster/teaser and fans will line up in all of Tamil Nadu for the first day first show of Viswasam. If reports are to be believed then Thalapathy Vijay will also be coming up with his film on Diwali itself.
Tentatively titled thalapathy 62 is being directed by AR Murugadoss and should release by Diwali if things go according to the plan. Ajith and Vijay are two of the biggest star in Tamil cinema and clash of their release is the ultimate threat to each other’s business. As Vivegam failed to impress the audience, Vijay’s Mersal was the biggest success of 2017 in Tamil cinema while garnering the awards season completely. Hype of Thalapathy 62 is way bigger than that of Viswasam because of Mersal and Vijay would try to completely cash in on it as Mersal was also released on Diwali. It will be atrocious to see these two massive films collide together in the wave of each ther’s hype and the final emergence of the winner.
