A still from the film
The makers of Anbarivu, directed by debutant Aswin Raam, had officially announced a month ago that the movie will have a direct-to-OTT release. Produced by TG Thyagarajan of Sathya Jyothi Films, the family drama stars musician-turned-actor Hip Hop Tamizha Adhi in dual roles for the first time.
Kashmira Pardeshi and Shivani Rajashekar play female leads in the project which has Napoleon, Sai Kumar, Asha Sharath, Vidharth and Arjai essaying important characters. Madhesh Manickam has cranked the camera for the project which has editing by Pradeep E Ragav and music composed by Adhi himself. Pon Parthiban and G Radhakrishnan have written dialogues for the movie.
What's Anbarivu all about?
The movie's plot revolves around identical twins Anbu and Arivu, who got separated at their birth for a strange reason. While one of them lives with his grandfather (played by Napolean), the other lives in the US. Sai Kumar and Asha Sharath play the parents to the twins played by Adhi.
After several years, fate brings them together, but little did they know that there are people who would hatch a plot to finish them off. Will they survive against all odds?
When and where to watch Anbarivu online?
The movie will have a direct release on Disney+ Hotstar on January 7. The trailer of the film was launched during an episode of Bigg Boss Tamil which is also streaming on the same digital platform. Kamal Haasan, the host of the reality show, along with Adhi, Thyagarajan and Aswin, were present at the event.
Anbarivu is the second collaboration of Adhi and Sathya Jyothi Films. Their last outing, Sivakumarin Sabadham, which had a theatrical release in September, started streaming on Disney+ Hotstar a month ago. Interestingly, the actor's next project, too, is bankrolled by the same production house.
