Here’s how to watch Master, the 2021 Tamil-language movie starring Vijay. Is it available to stream on Amazon Prime or only in cinemas?

Under the circumstances, 2020 was arguably still an impressive year for film fans, with such filmmakers as David Fincher, Christopher Nolan and Spike Lee all having films released, whether that be theatrically or through streaming.

The likes of No Time to Die, Black Widow, A Quiet Place Part II, Dune and more are yet to reach screens after having their 2020 release delayed.

However, a number of movies have begun to reach screens so far in 2021, from Pieces of a Woman on Netflix to Master, an Indian Tamil-language action vehicle.

Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film stars Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das and has attracted lots of buzz recently, but how can you watch it?

How to watch Master: 2021 Tamil-language movie

  • Master is currently only available to watch in cinemas. It has not yet reached any streaming platforms.

As highlighted by Indian Express, the film was originally scheduled to release theatrically in April 2020. However, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures, its release was delayed.

While there were a number of offers from streaming services, the Master producers placed an emphasis on their wishes to see the film released theatrically.

It was released in cinemas on Wednesday, January 13th 2021.

Is Master available on Amazon Prime Video?

As we’ve acknowledged, Master is only available to stream in cinemas. However, there is a reason why some audiences are wondering whether Amazon is distributing it.

Republic World highlights that Amazon Prime Video had released a poster of their August 2020 releases which mentioned Master.

Although, the 2021 movie’s distribution company – Seven Screen Studio – addressed confusion on Twitter, explaining: “It is 2016 Korean film #Master listed on Amazon Prime and not #ThalapathyVijay’s #Master!! We will have a grand theatrical release.”

So, to clarify, there are no plans for Master to be released on Amazon Prime Video.

In the wake of rumours that it was coming to Amazon, producer Xavier Britto dismissed them in an interview with Cinema Vikaten, confirming that it would only be released theatrically.

In other news, Red Notice is coming to Netflix.
