Vasantha Maligai to be re-released

After the super success of the digitally restored version of Karnan, Sivaji Ganesan's 1972 romantic hit Vasantha Maligai is all set to be re-released all over Tamil Nadu on December 7. The film, directed by K S Prakash, had the Nadigar Thilagam playing a love-struck rich man with Vanisree playing the female lead.

The film was a superhit when it released and celebrated its silver jubilee not just in theatres in Tamil Nadu but in Sri Lanka as well. The film is now being re-released after colour correction anddigital restoration in cinemascope format. The tragic romance is a remake of the Telugu film Prem Nagar (also remade in Hindi) and its influence could even be felt in Kamal Haasan's 1982 hit Vazhve Maayam.

The film is being released by distributor Srinivasan, who had earlier re-released the actor'sGowravam which was met with warm response at the box office.
