Which platform owns the exclusive digital rights to the well-known Tamil science-fiction thriller film “Maanaadu,” and what day and hour will it be released for OTT streaming?
The science fiction action thriller film “Maanaadu” was a notable release for the month of November for aficionados of Indian cinema.
The film is helmed by Venkat Prabhu and stars Silambarasan, who is very popular with the audience.
Fans are anxious to know when the movie will be accessible to stream online after a last-minute problem caused the release to be delayed for a few hours.
What day will Maanaadu be available for OTT streaming, and which online service has secured the sole broadcasting rights?
Maanaadu Was Postponed at The Last Minute
Maanaadu was originally slated to open in theaters on May 14 of this year; however, protracted post-production work necessitated a postponement until August.
Following the limitations placed on theater capacity due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the August premiere of Maanaadu was then postponed. A further postponement was then announced in early November for the same reason.
The movie was then set to premiere on November 25. However, worries arose after producer Suresh Kamatchi announced on Twitter that Maanaadu had been postponed one final time.
According to Sify, the news caused a number of the Maanaadu shows scheduled to start at 5 AM IST to be canceled.
Maanaadu Was Finally Released in Theatres
Thankfully, the controversy surrounding Maanaadu’s release was quickly addressed, and on November 25 at 7:30 AM IST, theaters all throughout the nation began showing the film.
The last-minute change to Maanaadu was made due to a KDM issue, or a problem with the Key Delivery Message, which governs how cinemas play copyright-encrypted content.
Then the producer would say, “Now it’s our turn. God is awesome. I appreciate everyone that supported me. Later, he continued, “We will fight them off and get through them no matter how many challenges come our way. Did you anticipate my fall?
Maanaadu, one of the best debuts of 2021, has earned more over 90 Crore at the box office as of this writing.
OTT Streaming Maanaadu Release Date, Time, and Platform
On November 11th, it was made public that Kalaignar TV and SonyLIV, respectively, have purchased the post-theatrical satellite and streaming rights for the Tamil version of Maanaadu.
On December 24, 2021, the film will now have its streaming debut on Sony LIV. Maanaadu has thus adopted a recent practice in the Indian film industry, where new films are made available for OTT streaming four weeks following their theatrical launch.
The movie is anticipated to premiere on SonyLIV at 12 AM IST, according to well-known industry insider Christopher Kanagaraj, although a precise release time has not yet been verified.
Currently, SonyLiv provides a number of membership packages that will grant access to Maanaadu once it is released:
- Plan Special: One screen for Rs. 199 annually
- Single-screen Special Plus Plan: Rs 399/year
- Premium Plan: Two screens running simultaneously for Rs. 999 per year
Geetha Arts has acquired the broadcasting rights for the Telugu version of the film on the Aha streaming platform.
A Sequel Has Already Been Confirmed
The good news is that fans may start anticipating the sequel as soon as Maanaadu airs on SonyLIV!
Director Venkat Prabhu said in a Twitter Spaces video, as reported by Sify, that after he finishes his other commitments, probably the next “Party” film, production on a sequel will begin.
Additionally, Prabhu is said to have confirmed that the major cast members from the original film would return for the sequel.
If a precise launch timing for Maanaadu’s streaming service or information on the sequel is confirmed by an official source, this item will be updated.
