The trilingual movie directed and acted by R. Madhavan, and produced by his wife Saritha will be released worldwide on July 1.

5. Ponniyin Selvan - I

Not just Mani Ratnam, but transforming 'Ponniyin Selvan' novel into a movie has been a dream of many directors for over six decades including late actor M.G Ramachandran (MGR). This movie is an adaptation of a historical fiction novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy, and the project initiated many years ago by Mani Ratnam with Vijay in the lead role was shelved due to budget constraints. Now Mani Ratnam took up the project once again and has completed the first part of the movie with top stars including Jayam Ravi, Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai, Vikram Prabhu, Prakash Raj, and the list goes on and on. The first part of the movie will have a worldwide release on September 30.
