Movie releases in June


Maharaja features Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role, portraying a barber who seeks vengeance after his home is burglarized and something very precious to him is stolen during the robbery.

Apart from Vijay Sethupathi, the film features actors in significant roles, including Munishkanth, Mamta Mohandas, Abhirami, Anurag Kashyap, Bharathiraja, and many more.

The Passion Studios-backed film, directed by Nithilan Swaminathan, is produced by Jagadish Palanisamy and Sudhan Sundaram.

The soundtrack and background scores were composed by B. Ajaneesh Loknath, who is well-known for his work in Kantara. The action thriller is all set to hit theaters on June 14, 2024.

Harom Hara

Harom Hara is Sudheer Babu's upcoming period action thriller, which promises to be extremely different for the actor. The film features Sudheer Babu in a rowdy avatar, marking his return to such a role after his 2017 action comedy Shamantakamani.

The film stars Aniruddha Jatkar, Rachel David, Tulasi, Nidhi Subbaiah, Sharath, and Shivamani in pivotal roles. The project was financed by DN Roopa under the banner of her own production house, Damthi Pictures.

The film has been helmed by M. Anandaraj and is set to hit theaters on June 14, 2024.
