The makers of Kodiyil Oruvan had earlier announced its theatrical release on May 14. It was also speculated that the movie will take on Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Doctor at the box office. However, the second wave of COVID-19 played spoilsport on their plans. When the Tamil Nadu government granted permission for theatres to open in the last week, Kodiyil Oruvan was one among the projects which welcomed the move, hinting at a release soon. Now, the makers have informed that an announcement on the official release date of the project will be made on September 1, at 10.01am.

Ananda Krishnan of Metro fame has directed the movie, which has Vijay Antony and Aathmika playing lead roles. Vijay, who took to his Twitter account to announce the news, said that he is happy to share the release date with the audience tomorrow. Vijay himself has edited the film which has cinematography by NS Uthaya Kumar and music by Nivas K Prasanna. Mahesh Mathew has helmed the action sequences of Kodiyil Oruvan, which has dance choreography by Hari Kiran.
The film's teaser and trailer were released on January and April respectively on this year. There have been speculation on a movie of Vijay Antony going the OTT way. With Kodiyil Oruvan's announcement on theatrical release date dropping tomorrow, film lovers have started guessing the project of the musician-turned-actor which will have a premiere on digital platform.
Vijay has Thamezharasan, Khaki, Agni Siragugal and the much-awaited Pichaikkaran 2, which will mark his debut as a director, too, in his kitty. The sequel to the blockbuster movie, Pichaikkaran, was earlier supposed to have Priya Krishnaswamy at the helm. Earlier last year, he was in the news when he announced that he is ready to take 25 per cent pay cut for the projects Tamizharasan, Agni Siragugal and Khaki, in a bid to help Tamil film producers who were struggling financially due to COVID-19.
