Following that, Pon Manickavel will be Prabhu Deva's next Pongal release. The film's teaser which released a few months back showed some good promise of being an honest action drama with a strong content. So, as of now, four Tamil films including Darbar, Pattas, Sumo, and Pon Manickavel, are going to contest for the Pongal race. However, except Darbar, the exact release dates for other films are yet to be officially announced. Stay tuned.
