Tamil watchlist for May 2024

The dry season in the Tamil film industry continues in May 2024, too. There are no major releases the next month.

However, interestingly, the industry will witness many re-releases, including Ajith’s Billa (2007), Mankatha (2011), and Vijay’s Kushi (2000).

Vishal’s Rathnam, which was released on 24 April, evoked a mixed response.

Meanwhile, actor-director Sundar C’s Aranmanai 4, which was slated for release in April, will hit the screens on 3 May.
