A still from the film
Multiple release postponement has made Ayngaran one of the long-delayed Tamil films in recent times. The Ravi Arasu directorial which completed shooting a few years ago was finally announced as a May 12 release recently. It was Dhanush who announced the news, and GV Prakash, who plays the lead in the movie, had thanked him for the support.
The movie was supposed to hit the screens earlier today, but it looks like the first shows are cancelled due to reasons best known to the team. We hear that it is the unsettled financial issue which has caused the trouble now to the makers.
There are reports that shows of Ayngaran will start in the afternoon post its makers sorting out the issue. The project is Ravi's second film after Eetti (streaming on Jio Cinema) which released in 2015. It is also GV Prakash's second movie to release this year after Selfie (streaming on aha Tamil).
Venkat Prabhu's recent release Manmadha Leelai (streaming on aha Tamil) was one notable movie which faced a similar issue this year. The fate of his own Maanaadu (streaming on SonyLIV) which released in November was no different. Many movies, including big ticket projects, have faced similar troubles over the years in Kollywood.
Interestingly, the press shows for Ayngaran were held a week ago when the makers had announced May 5 as its theatrical release date first. But they couldn't stop the movie from lying in the cans due to last minute hurdles.
Mahima Nambiar, Kaali Venkat, Arul Dass, Aadukalam Naren and Hareesh Peradi among others essay crucial characters in the project which has Saravanan Abimanyu handling cinematography and Raja Mohammed in charge of editing. B Ganesh has bankrolled the film under the banner of Common Man.
