Vikram Vedha will have its digital premiere on JioCinema on May 12.
Triangle of Sadness:
Written and directed by Ruben Östlund, Triangle of Sadness is a biting satire that skewers the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Chaos ensues when the ship encounters rough waters, revealing the absurdity and fragility of the opulent world they inhabit. The ensemble cast features some talented actors, including Thobias Thorwid, Harris Dickinson, and Charlbi Dean.
Triangle of Sadness will become available for streaming on SonyLIV on May 12. You can also watch Triangle of Sadness on OTTplay Premium.

The upcoming movie, directed by S. Kathiresan, is a throwback to the old-school Tamil over-the-top revenge dramas that we all grew up watching. The movie stars Raghava Lawrence and Priya Bhavani Shankar in the lead roles and promises to be a treat for fans of commercial cinema..
