Venkat Prabhu's much-awaited political thriller Maanaadu, starring Silambarasan in the lead, is all set for a theatrical release on November 25. The movie was earlier supposed to hit the screens on Deepavali, but the lack of adequate number of screens made the makers postpone the release by three weeks.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music for the movie which has Kalyani Priyadarshan playing the female lead. SJ Suryah, SA Chandrasekar, Premgi, Karunakaran, Anjena Kirti and Manoj Bharathiraja among others will be seen essaying key roles in the film which has editing by Praveen, cinematography by Richard M Nathan and action choreography by Stunt Silva.
Though the team is yet to make an announcement regarding its OTT premiere, it is heard that the film's Telugu version will have its premiere on Aha. Earlier this year, the OTT platform had bagged the streaming rights of the Telugu version of Silambarasan's Eeswaran (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar), which has been titled Eeswarudu in Telugu.
However, it is yet to be known since when the Telugu version (titled The Loop) of Maanaadu will be available on the digital platform. The Kannada version of the movie has also been titled The Loop. The trailer of Telugu and Kannada versions were released by Nani and Rakshit Shetty respectively recently.
The movie will take on two projects of Sasikumar, Kombu Vatcha Singamda and Rajavamsam, which will hit the screens on November 26 at the box office. Vetri's Vanam is another movie which is releasing on the same day. Maanaadu, which is billed as a time-loop thriller, has Silambarasan playing Abdul Khaaliq, a suspense-filled character which has different layers to it.
