Anand Shankar's action flick, Enemy, was initially announced as a theatrical release which will hit the screens on October 14, as a Dussehra release. In fact, the Vishal-Arya-starrer was the first Tamil movie to have announced arrival on the festival season. Later, the team of Aranmanai 3, which, too, has Arya in the lead, announced a release on the same date.
Movie buffs were eagerly waiting to know if two films of Arya will hit the screens on October 14. The actor is on a high after his last outing, Sarpatta Parambarai, which premiered on Amazon Prime Video on July, opened to positive reviews.
A couple of other projects also announced their theatrical releases on the same day. In an unexpected turn of events, Enemy was then postponed to Deepavali, on November 4. With uncertainty and confusion prevailing on the release dates of films that are releasing this year in Kollywood, many predicted that Enemy may miss Deepavali season as well.
However, a short promo released on social media today confirmed that the film will hit the screens on the most-expected festival season of the year. The promo affirms that the plot of the movie revolves around a cat-and-mouse game between characters played by Arya and Vishal.
Sam CS has composed background score for the film which has songs by Thaman. The makers had earlier released teaser and a few songs from the movie which has Prakash Raj, Mamta Mohandas, Mirnalini Ravi, Karunakaran and Thambi Ramaiah among others playing notable roles. RD Rajasekar is the cinematographer for the project which is bankrolled by Vinod's Mini Studios. Enemy brings together Vishal and Arya after Bala's Avan Ivan (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) which released more than a decade ago.
