The release of Seenu Ramasamy's long-delayed project Maamanithan was postponed multiple times owing to reasons best known to the team. The last time they made an announcement, it was a June 23 release. Now, the filmmaker has revealed that the release of the project, starring Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, has been pushed by a day.
The family drama will hit the screens on June 24. Seenu has also posted a new poster of the movie from his Twitter page along with the release date announcement.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has bankrolled the project which marks the coming together of him and his father Ilaiyaraaja for the first time. The music by maestro and little maestro is said to be one of the highlights of the film which has Gayathrie, Guru Somasundaram and KPAC Lalitha among others essaying key roles.
Vijay plays an autorickshaw driver in the film which revolves around the complex struggles of a middle class man. How he faces various hurdles to protect his family forms the rest of the story.
M Sukumar has cranked the camera for Maamanithan which has editing by A Sreekar Prasad. Vijay Thennarasu has helmed art direction for the project which has lyrics penned by Pa Vijay and Karunakaran. A lion's share of the movie was shot in Kerala, and a few Malayalam artists are also part of the film.
Maamanithan is likely to have a box office clash with Vezham, Iravin Nizhal, Kallapart and Titanic. However, it has to be seen how many of them will make it to the screens on the announced date. The film marks the fourth collaboration of Seenu and Sethupathi after Thenmerku Paruvakaatru, Idam Porul Yaeval and Dharma Durai.
