Suriya, Priyanka Mohan's 'Etharkkum Thuninthavan' gets a release date
The makers of Kollywood actor Suriya's upcoming film titled Etharkkum Thuninthavan announced that the film will get a theatrical release on February 4, 2022. While it was anticipated that the Pandiraj directorial will have a box office clash with Ajith Kumar and H Vinoth's Valimai on Pongal, this announcement has made it clear that the makers have decided to play a safe game.
Why is this film important?
Suriya made heads turn with his last two hit OTT releases namely, Jai Bhim and Soorarai Pottru. However, the series of his last theatrical releases Kaappaan, NGK, and Thaana Serndha Koottam gave the actor a huge slump in his career as none of the films impressed neither fans nor critics. Will the upcoming flick finally be Suriya's long-awaited blockbuster? Let's wait and watch!
Release date was announced with a glimpse video
Coming back to Etharkkum Thuninthavan, the film's makers recently announced the release date while sharing a glimpse video. Going by the video, it can be understood that the film will be set against a rural backdrop like most of the director's previous outings. It shows Suriya shaking a leg for a foot-tapping background score and ends with the Ghajini actor posing a fierce look.
