On the occasion of Pongal, South movie lovers are being treated with the pleasure of witnessing an epic box office clash between two of Tamil movie industry’s biggest superstars Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar. After mesmerising the audience with his 2.0 version of Chitti in S Shankar’s last release, Rajinikanth is once again back in action with Karthik Subbaraj’s Petta. Petta marks the Tamil debut of Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It also features Simran, Sasikumar, Vijay Sethupathi, Malayalam actor Manikandan R Achari and Bobby Simha. Rajinikanth plays an ageing gangster in the film. Anirudh Ravichander has composed the music for the film.
On the other hand, Ajith, who was last seen in the 2017 blockbuster Vivegam, is all set to entertain the audience with an out-and-out commercial potboiler Viswasam. The film also stars Nayanthara, Yogi Babu, Vivek, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah and Kovai Sarala among others. The film has a great buzz in Tamil Nadu and its worldwide theatrical rights have been valued at Rs 75 crore. Viswasam has been directed by Siva, who has previously directed Ajith in Vivegam and Vedalam. For the first time in 13 years, another star film is releasing along with a Rajinikanth film on the same day. While many trade analysts predicted that the two films were expected to eat into each other’s business, early reviews suggest that both movies are likely to do well at the box office.
Check out some of the reactions of fans after watching Petta :

#Viswasam – The only Saviour for ths movie is #ThalaAjith.
A Very Routine Predictable story and main Negative is Comedy didn’t work out. Few good fight Scene’s.
2nd Half very Slow and unwanted Flashback scenes.#Siva has wasted it again.#ViswasamFromToday#ViswasamReview

Mr.Siva – Villian of #Thala fans. Watchable in theatres once. That too only with die hard fans with the audience sound, claps and whistles. Praying to stop choosing family related scripts. #Viswasam #ViswasamThiruvizha #ViswasamReview.. Watch for #Thala

#Viswasam so many emotional scenes with a medium touch. 😅kanla thanni in many scenes. More than #thala fans family will enjoy #viswasam. The genre and movie towards climax was very touching😭. Best of #thala in recent times. #ViswasamReview #ViswasamFDFS #ViswasamThiruvizha

#Viswasam : Lack on mass & more on emotions. Easily Thala’s best performance since Yennai Arindhaal. Thankfully the script had much of scope for the actor Ajith.
Family can indulge into this movie. We have seen lot of mass moments from this combo but #Viswasam a pleasant change!
