The Tamil film industry is now set to welcome its biggest film release season, Pongal, by the second week of January 2023. This Pongal season, Kollywood will witness the mega box office clash between the two most-awaited films, Thunivu and Varisu. The release date of Thunivu was confirmed recently, and the makers have officially announced that the movie is set to hit the theatres on January 11, Wednesday. The makers announced the exciting news with a special update, on January 4, Wednesday.

Ajith Kumar, director H Vinoth, and his team have undoubtedly raised expectations over the project with its stellar official trailer, which features a never-seen-before, unique heist film with a touch of action and humour. Interestingly, the character played by AK has been kept under wraps so far. But it has been confirmed that the stylish star is back to the silver screen as a not-so-good man who is on a hidden mission. Expectations are riding high on the film, after the official trailer created quite a stir on social media.

Check out the Thunivu release date announcement below:


1. An Ajith Kumar show

After the official trailer went viral on social media, both Ajith Kumar fans and common audiences are sure that Thunivu is going to be a fitting tribute to the famous star of Kollywood. In the trailer, AK has truly unleashed his versatality and has stunned the audiences with his ease with the portrayal of the central character, who is on a hidden mission. As expected, Ajith scored with his complete grey look and exceptional performances in some of the highlight scenes in the trailer. From what we have seen so far, the stylish star is all set to stun the audiences once again with a stellar performance in his role, which reportedly has grey-shades. 

2. A solid heist film

Earlier in one of his interviews, director H Vinoth had confirmed that Thunivu is not a complete action film or heist thriller, as the reports suggested before. According to the talented filmmaker, Thunivu is a multi-genre film that is made to cater to audiences from all age groups, especially families. However, the trailer has confirmed that the Ajith Kumar starrer indeed deals with a massive bank robbery, that involves a mysterious man. From the trailer, we think the film narrates a fight between a wronged man and the system.

3. A Well-written, well-directed film

The audiences are expecting Thunivu to be the 'ideal' family entertainer that will provide wholesome entertainment this Pongal season. However, film fanatics who are totally impressed with H Vinoth's talent, believe that the director is going create quite a stir once again with his next outing with Ajith Kumar, which is well-written and well-directed. 

4. A high voltage action film

From the Thunivu official trailer, it is evident that director H Vinoth and his team have paid attention to even the minute details when it comes to the action sequences of the film. Ajith Kumar, the leading man is seen handling the high voltage stunts like a pro, as always, and this is one aspect that left action cinema lovers completely excited. The one particular scene in the trailer, in which Ajith is seen dancing while firing with his machine gun, is definitely going to create a major adrenaline rush on the audiences. 

5. A female lead who has a major role to play

Unlike the majority of Tamil films, where the female lead is usually seen playing the love interest of the protagonist, Thunivu will have a strong female lead who will also perform some high-voltage stunt sequences with leading man Ajith Kumar. Manju Warrier, the lady superstar of Malayalam cinema is appearing in the role, and the actress's stellar action sequences from the film have already garnered the attention of audiences. Interestingly, Manju is not appearing as Ajith's love interest in the film, but they are appearing as crime partners.

6. A stellar supporting cast

Thunivu features a stellar star cast including actor-filmmaker Samuthirakani, Veera, John Kokken, Ajay, Cibi Chandran, and others in supporting roles. From the official trailer, it is evident that director H Vinoth has created an equal space for almost all the supporting characters in the film.

7. An electrifying music score

The songs of Thunivu, which are composed by the talented filmmaker Ghibran, have already garnered the attention of cinema and music enthusiasts. However, Ajith fans and cine-goers believe that the musician has done a great job with the original score of the film, after watching its official trailer.
