The hype surrounding Thangalaan, Chiyaan Vikram’s upcoming film helmed by Pa. Ranjith has been surreal. The film, which is currently in its post-production stage, is expected to hit the silver screens in April, this year.

Although it was initially announced that the film would be released on January 26th, the date was later postponed due to the time taken by the extensive VFX work. In the latest update, producer G Dhananjayan has revealed in a recent interview with Rednool that the makers plan to release the film in April, but the exact date can only be revealed once the election dates are announced. He added that this would be a time when the nation’s focus is on politics, and not on cinema.

Producer Dhananjayan reveals only touch-up work is left in Thangalaan

Speaking in the interview, the producer revealed that both Chiyaan Vikram and Pa. Ranjith have worked diligently for Thangalaan. He added that although the film exceeded the initial budget, the co-producer Gnanavel Raja was quite confident about the film’s content and insisted that the film would bring back their investment.

Additionally, he pointed out that with a substantial investment at stake, strategic planning is essential for the release. The upcoming board exams, IPL, and the 2024 Parliamentary elections create a scenario where the audience turnout at theaters is expected to decrease significantly. These considerations hold great importance for producers. He highlighted that the release date for Thangalaan will be determined based on the election schedule to ensure maximum theater attendance.

Dhananjayan also stated during the interview that the film has finished production, editing, and re-recording, and the final version is nearly finalized. Right now, they are putting the finishing touches on the CGI and special effects.
