Pa Ranjith and Vikram’s most-anticipated film Thangalaan, which is scheduled to hit the big screens on January 26, 2024, is reportedly facing a roadblock. The movie's release date might get delayed by a few months, according to some reports. One of the primary reasons could be due to the delay in finishing the final stages of the film. Some of the shots of Chiyaan Vikram were reshot, according to a few other sources. However, there has not been any updates from the production team of the period drama.

Malavika Mohanan completes dubbing, shares experience

Meanwhile, Malavika Mohanan, who is playing the female lead in the Vikram-starrer, recently finished dubbing for the film and shared her experience on social media.  

She said, “I am petrified about dubbing. But when it came to this film, it was such a hard character to get into. To get into that character all over again, without costume, without being on set, without doing the scene, and to still perform with the same energy, scream like her, speak like her, react to action sequences. It's one of the most challenging things I have done. I don't know how it turned out. We will all find out soon, but fingers crossed.”  

The actress revealed that she seeks help from friends to help her ease her anxiety, while dubbing. “Yes I am very scared. Everytime I go dubbing, I kind of ask my friends if they want to come so that they can hand hold me through the process,” the actress elaborated. 


About Thangalaan

The teaser of Thangalaan provided a glimpse into Pa Ranjith’s unique vision, promising an unparalleled cinematic experience. The film focuses on the freedom struggle against the British Raj with a fresh perspective. Thangalaan’s setting exudes an air of surrealism and mythology. And while it narrates a familiar tale of the oppressed rising against their oppressors, the movie’s visual and narrative style add a novel dimension to the storyline. 

Cast and crew of Thangalaan

The upcoming movie’s cast also includes Parvathy, Malavika Mohanan, Pasupathi, Muthukumar, Hari Krishnan, Preethi and Arjun Prabhakaran. Set against the backdrop of the Kolar Gold Fields during the British era, the film is produced on a grand scale by KE Gnanavel Raja’s Studio Green with Ranjith’s Neelam Productions overseeing production on a first-copy basis. The movie has music scored by GV Prakash Kumar.
