Actor Jayam Ravi’s upcoming film Appatakkar has been re-titled Sakalakalavallavan, and movie posters have been altered to reflect this change. The movie is ready to release on July 31. The reasons behind the last minute title change are unknown. It is likely that the filmmakers have acquired the rights for the title ‘Sakalakalavallavan and prefer using the new title to avoid running into any pre-release difficulties.


Sakalakalavallavan is directed by Suraj and produced by Lakshmi Movie Makers. Actor Jayam Ravi, who has already had a successful release with Romeo Juliet, will have back-to-back releases with Sakalakalavallavan and his brother Mohan Raja’s Thani Oruvan.
