When it is difficult for a director to have single release itself, here is director Vijay, two of whose directorials are releasing on the same date. Yes, we are talking about Devi 2 and Watchman which are set to release on the 12th April. Devi 2 is the sequel of Devi and features Prabhu Deva and Tamannaah. It is a horror comedy and version 1 was enjoyed by the audience so much that the director decided to make a sequel.
The release date of Devi 2 was revealed by producer Ishari Ganesh on the success meet of RJ Balaji’s LKG. As regards Watchman, the film features G V Prakash, Samyuktha Hegde and Yogi Babu. Sayyesha has done a cameo of sorts in a song and dance sequence which was released a few days ago as a promotional video. GV Prakash has worked with Vijay as a music composer but this is the first time he is acting in a film directed by Vijay. Prakash has also composed for Watchman.
Since this is an interesting feature of a director’s two films releasing on the same date, we decided to speak to industry veterans like director SP Muthuraman and he said, “Yes, it is indeed an interesting aspect that Vijay’s Devi 2 and Watchman are releasing on the same date. This has happened in 1982 for SP Muthuraman whose Sakala Kala Vallavan and Engeyo Ketta Kural hit the screens on 14th August. Director Manivannan’s Paalaivana Rojaakkal and Vidinja Kalyanam also were released on 1st November 1986”. We wish great success for Devi 2 and Watchman!
