These days 200 crores and 300 crore budget films have become quite possible and plausible in Tamil cinema. But a Tamil film that was started 17 years ago and released 15 years ago was way ahead of its budget. We are referring to Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan's 'Aalavandhan' produced by Kalaipuli.S.Thanu.
The film released in November 2002 is going to be rereleased soon in a digitally remastered version. The digitalization process begins today. Thanu will be releasing the digital version in as many as 500 screens across Tamil Nadu.
