Jigarthanda Double X stars Raghava Lawrence, SJ Suryah, Shine Tom Chacko, Nimisha Sajayan, Naveen Chandra, Sathyan and Aravind Akash.
Filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj's Jigarthanda Double X is his first film to be released in theatres after a gap of more than four years. Based on the initial reviews of the movie, the director seems to have exceeded the expectations of his fans.
We can officially confirm that after the end of its theatrical run, Jigarthanda Double X will find a home on Netflix. The streaming giant seems to be making a lot of investments in securing the digital rights for new Tamil movies.
Based on the current industry practice, it is safe to assume that Jigarthanda Double X will become available for streaming within four weeks of its theatrical release. However, an official confirmation on the same is awaited.
Karthik has written, directed and produced Jigarthanda Double X, which is a sequel to his runway hit Jigarthanda. And it seems the director has a grand plan to turn it into a massive movie franchise.
The Jigarthanda franchise is a sort of home ground for Karthik as the 2014 action drama was the reason behind his metoric rise in Tamil cinema. And it's understandable why he would have picked Jigarthanda Double X as his comeback film on the big screen.
Karthik's last two movies Jagame Thandhiram and Mahaan, starring Dhanush and Chiyaan Vikram, respectively went directly to streaming owing to the pandemic. Recently, Karthik revealed that despite his best efforts, he couldn't stop his producers from putting these films directly on the streaming platforms.
Jigarthanda tells the story of a filmmaker trying to make a movie with a real-life gangster. The sequel borrows several key elements from its predecessor, but its main theme is very different.
Jigarthanda Double X stars Raghava Lawrence, SJ Suryah, Shine Tom Chacko, Nimisha Sajayan, Naveen Chandra, Sathyan and Aravind Akash among others.
