The first look and second look posters from Thunivu which were released a few days ago had sent fans of Ajith Kumar into a tizzy. They have been eagerly awaiting an update from makers, and are elated with the response for the title reveal and posters which showcase Ajith in a stylish avatar.  

All eyes are now on the film's release date. The heist drama, which was expected to hit the screens for Deepavali, is yet to be wrapped. Movie buffs hope that the much-awaited film would be released around the Pongal festival in January 2023. The news regarding the possibility of a box office clash between Thunivu and Vijay's Varisu is also doing the rounds.

We have now learnt that the film's post-theatrical digital rights have been acquired by Netflix. A reliable source has confirmed the same as well. It's just a matter of time before makers announce the news officially. Thunivu marks the third collaboration of Ajith, director H Vinoth and producer Boney Kapoor.

The trio's earlier projects, Nerkonda Paarvai and Valimai, were dropped on Zee5 post their theatrical releases. The association of Thunivu and Netflix has come as a surprise for fans, as they were expecting this film, too, to drop on Zee5.

Manju Warrier, Samuthirakani, Prem Kumar and John Kokken among others will be seen essaying important characters in Thunivu which has music direction by Ghibran and action choreography by Supreme Sundar. Nirav Shah and Vijay Velukutty are in charge of cinematography and editing respectively.

There are unconfirmed reports that the film is based on a bank robbery which happened in Punjab in the 80s. Though a bank set was erected in Ramoji Film City a few months ago, it isn't sure if the movie's story is based on a real story.
