The teaser of the most anticipated Jagame Thanthiram was released on Monday. If the teaser has anything to offer, director Karthik Subbaraj has made a sizzling, dark comedy about an Indian gangster who gives mafia bosses in America a run for their money.
The teaser starts with a very important question: “Who is this guy Surali?” The answer follows when we find out he is a man who wears a lot of hats. He seems to be the treasure of the village who is also a professional at making land bombs. He also seems to have a penchant for violence and blood. He’s funny and can set the dance floor on fire. What if he goes abroad and becomes a nightmare for gangsters who carry guns, wear tuxedos and talk smoothly? We just have to wait and see.
Jagame Thanthiram is set to be released direct to Netflix, but the date for the movie’s OTT premiere is not yet known. Not many are happy with Y NOT Studios’ producer S. Sashikanth about his decision to stream the film directly when the cinemas are at 100 percent capacity.
The film was due to be released last May. However, the coronavirus outbreak forced filmmakers to postpone indefinitely. And the filmmakers had always claimed the film was made for a theatrical experience and they had no plans for a direct OTT release. It’s unclear what changed Sashikanth’s determination to stick to the cinema window release.
Industry hype suggests Dhanush had an argument with Sashikanth for posting Jagame Thandhiram on Netflix. In addition to Dhanush, Aishwarya Lekshmi, James Cosmo, Joju George, Kalaiyarasan and others can be seen in the film.
