Almost one month after Aranmanai 3 arrived in cinemas, we reveal the digital release date and streaming platforms for viewers around the world.
The term ‘trilogy’ holds some weight in the cinema industry; Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones all naturally come to mind.
However, one of the most popular trilogies in recent Indian cinema history is the Aranmanai series. The film series, which is written, directed and produced by Sundar C, made its big-screen debut in 2014, with the second premiering in 2016.
The premise of each film may not be connected to each other, but each follows supernatural events taking place in a mysterious palace. Now, fans around the world are delighted to hear that a streaming release date has been confirmed for Aranmanai 3!
Aranmanai 3 releases in theatres…
Aranmanai 3 was originally slated to launch in May 2021, coinciding with the Ramzan. However, like countless other cinema projects from around the world, had to be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Aranmanai 3 would then debut in theatres around the world five months later on October 14th, 2021.
The premiere window was revealed by lead actor Arya on Twitter, who shared the latest promotional images for the film and confirmed “#Aranmanai3 in theatres worldwide from October 14th.
On September 30th, the Saregama Tamil YouTube channel then shared the official trailer which garnered more than two million views in around 20 hours – see below.
Unfortunately, Aranmanai 3 received extremely poor reviews from both fans and critics alike.
At the time of writing, the movie is scoring a disappointing 4.3/10 on IMDB with IndiaGlitz giving Aranmanai 3 a lacklustre 2.25/5. Similar reviews can be found across the internet, including a shocking half a star out-of-five on The Indian Express.
