What time will fans around the world be able to watch the upcoming boxing drama ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’ and which platforms will stream the movie?
Last week, boxing fans both in India and around the world were hooked on ‘Toofan’.
This week, those same fans are preparing for another heavyweight knock-out with ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’.
The second feature film about the squared circle in as many weeks, we are counting down to the final bell in our boxing-movie main event; but what time will the film release online?
How to watch Sarpatta Parambarai…
Sarpatta Parambarai will be exclusively available to stream on Amazon Prime Video, before arriving on Star Vijay on satellite television.
The satellite television broadcasting rights have been reportedly purchased by Star Vijay/Vijay TV, but a domestic premiere has not yet been revealed.
Sarpatta Parambarai: Release date and time
- Sarpatta Parambarai will release via Amazon Prime Video on Wednesday, July 22nd at 12 AM IST.
Amazon Help Twitter page replied to users on July 21st, stating that they “haven’t made any announcement on the time”.
However, they later confirmed that the movie will become available to stream at midnight in both Tamil and Telugu.
The movie was originally due to release theatrically first, but a digital launch was preferred following cinema closures across the country in the wake of rising covid cases.
A date was first set for August 12th during the Independence Day weekend, but Amazon moved this up to July 22nd – aligning with their global Prime Day celebrations.
Sarpatta Parambarai plot…
The movie centres around a conflict between two clans in North Chennai called Idiyappa Parambarai and Sarpatta Parambarai.
In the movie, we follow Kabilan, a young man who must lead his community both inside and outside the ring; in a narrative that “showcases the boxing culture in the locality and also the politics being involved in it.”
Whilst the film itself is not directly based on a true story, it certainly has elements from real life; as the star of the movie Arya explained:
“Ranjith sir had done a great deal of research for the film, about the North Madras lifestyle, the Sarpatta Parambarai – Idiyappam Parambarai rivalry, the social status, among other things. We even had real boxers come down and share their experiences with us.”
