The long-delayed adventure horror comedy Kaatteri has got a release date. The film, which is directed by Deekay of Yaamirukka Bayamey fame, will finally hit screens on August 5. The makers made the announcement on their social media page, "Time to get #katteri-fied All set for grand Release on August 5 in theatres #KatteriFromAug5 @StudioGreen2 @kegvraja @abiabipictures @abineshelango @actor_vaibhav #Deekay @bajwasonam @varusarath5 @im_aathmika #Karunakaran @Cinemainmygenes @prasad_sn_ @NehaGnanavel (sic)."

Vaibhav plays the lead character in Kaatteri. The leading ladies include Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Aathmika, Sonam Bajwa and Manali Rathod. Karunakaran will appear in a crucial role in the film. The plot is said to be divided into two portions with Sonam and Aathmika being part of the city scenes and Varalaxmi and Manali being part of the period portions. It is said the portions interject at a point in the film's plot. The shoot for the film began in 2018 itself and most portions were canned in a jungle set up and in Sri Lanka as well. Quite a few portions are set during the night time.

Music for the film is by SN Prasad. This is his second collaboration with Deekay. The duo had earlier worked together in Yaamirukka Bayamey. Cinematography is by PS Vinod and editing is handled by Praveen KL. The film's release was postponed multiple times due to the pandemic and at point of time, it was said that Katteri would have a direct release date. However, the director had then clarified that the film will release in theatres as it made for a theatre audience and meant to watched in a group. The film is bankrolled by Studio Green.

Interestingly, Deekay's previous venture, Yaamirukka Bayamey, too was of the same horror comedy genre. The film marked the director's debut and the plot was said to be based on the 1998 Korean film, The Quiet.
