MGR Magan: Release date and time
MGR Magan will premiere on the Disney Plus Hotstar streaming service on Thursday, November 4th, 2021.
A specific release time has not been shared by either the streaming distributors or the MGR Magan production team. Unfortunately, Disney Plus Hotstar makes a habit of launching new Indian content at unusual times, making it difficult to predict a potential launch window.
However, there are multiple reports circulating from various fan accounts on social media that MGR Magan will premiere at 12 AM India Standard Time.
The movie was originally scheduled to release in theatres last Diwali (2020), but was delayed in response to the theatre industry closing its doors because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
New release dates were set for Christmas 2020 and then April 2021, with the production team preferring to wait until cinema capacity could be increased. However, like countless other movie projects, opted in October to release directly on OTT streaming platform Disney Plus Hotstar.
“What is disappointing is the fact that theatres are open in Tamil Nadu, and still the team had to come up with a decision to release the movie on an OTT platform. But the final decision is in the producer’s hand. As a director, I have to support them.” – Director Ponram, via OTT Play.
