Flying squads comprising Vishal's fan club members will visit screens airing his latest release Thupparivaalan across Tamil Nadu to prevent online piracy. These five member squads are intended as a check for theater prints that are made available online, hours after the official release.
Thupparivalan stars Vishal, Prasanna, Andrea Jeremiah, Simran and K Bhagyaraj. The film is directed by Mysskin and produced by Vishal’s production company. Thupparivaalan has music by Arrol Corelli, who has earlier worked with Mysskin in Pisasu.
Around six movies - four Tamil and two Telugu movies are releasing this weekend. On Friday, the major clash will be between Mysskin's detective story Thupparivaalan and Bramma's women-centric Magalir Mattum. Two other Tamil movies Kalathur Gramam and Yaar Ivan are also releasing this weekend. Meanwhile, there will be two releases from Tollywood -- the rom-com Kathalo Rajkumari and the comedy Ungarala Rambabu.
