It’s been another big year for film fans.
After 2020 disappointed with a string of release date delays for some of the most anticipated blockbusters, this year has more than made up for that.
The likes of No Time to Die and Dune recently reached the big screen at long last, while other highlights have included The Guilty, The Green Knight, Joji, Last Night in Soho, The Suicide Squad, The French Dispatch, and Annette.
However, there’s still plenty more to come over the next two months, including Spider-Man: No Way Home, West Side Story, and The Matrix Resurrections.
One of the latest to capture the attention of audiences is Annaatthe.
Directed by Siva, the Indian Tamil-language action movie is finally here and audiences aren’t willing to miss out on this one.
So, let’s consider where to watch Annaatthe…
Where to watch Annaatthe
Annaatthe is screening in cinemas from Thursday, November 4th 2021 and is now also streaming on Netflix.
It will also be made available through Sun TV/Sun NXT.
It is worth checking whether your local multiplex or arthouse still has screenings available; such chains as Odeon and Showcase Cinema de Lux have previously had showings.
The shoot lasted over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in production being delayed. It began filming all the way back in December 2019.
As for what to expect, Kalaiyaan raises his sister Thangameenakshi just as he promised his mother he would before she died. After her passing, he sends her to Kolkata to study and she returns home having earned her degree.
He begins to search for a suitable husband for her, finds a doctor wishing to marry her and he also starts a relationship with a local businessman, Naatudurai.
As the wedding approaches, Kalaiyaan is shocked to learn that his sister has been kidnapped and he must do everything in his power to rescue her.

“It’s going to be a fun film”
While in conversation with The Hindu ahead of the film’s release, Khushbu opened up somewhat about why audiences will be impressed:
“… it’s going to be a fun film. People will get to see the Rajinikanth they always wanted to see. It will be like the Rajinikanth from Annamalai, Arunachalam, Muthu, and Padayappa. That Rajinikanth was missing for a very long time. Meena and I have cute roles to play in it.”
Commenting on the experience of working on the project, she added: “It was wonderful. It felt like the old times, because everybody was on the sets! Nobody was going back to the caravans.”
