2019 started off on a good note for Kollywood with successful releases like Rajnikanth’s Petta and Ajith’s Viswasam. As February comes to a close, here is everything you need to know about the films releasing this weekend.
This upcoming political satire will mark RJ-actor Balaji’s debut as a lead actor. RJ Balaji, known for his comedic roles in films such as Naanum Rowdy Dhan, Vellaikaran and Vadacurry, will be seen playing a politician in LKG. The film has generated a lot of interest as it seems that Balaji will be trolling Tamil Nadu’s political leaders using his inimitable brand of comedy. While Priya Anand will play the female lead, AIADMK politician Nanjil Sampath has landed an important role in the film. Directed by debutant Prabhu, LKG is being produced by Ishari K Ganesh’s banner Vels Entertainment and is set to release on February 22.
Written and directed by ace cinematographer Chezhiyan, To Let has made the rounds of several film festivals all over the world.

The film will hit the big screen on February 21.
