Since the offset of the pandemic, audiences have grown more accustomed to movie release date delays.

Some of the biggest projects of the year were initially set to be unveiled sooner, whether that’s No Time to Die, Dune, or A Quiet Place: Part II.

However, not all delays are simply the result of the pandemic, and there has recently been talk of the highly anticipated Maanaadu being postponed indefinitely.

With viewers eager to see it and some already having tickets, let’s explain the situation and consider where to watch Maanaadu once it arrives…

Where to watch Maanaadu: Is it postponed?

The cinema is still the place to watch Maanaadu from Thursday, November 25th 2021. Many audiences have shared their thoughts on the film over on Twitter after seeing it in the morning. This is after initial talk of a postponed release date

Early news of a delay was announced by Suresh Kamatchi, who recently wrote on Twitter:

“A creation created with a lot of dreams. I was looking forward to its delivery. It is with great pain that I inform you that the release of #Maanaadu has been postponed due to unavoidable reasons. I will announce the release date later and apologise for the inconvenience.”

This wouldn’t have been the first time the project has been delayed, as it was originally scheduled for Thursday, November 4th. However, the release was pushed back by two weeks due to the release of other projects such as Annaatthe.

Times of India highlights that industry insiders have said the postponement confusion was the result of lingering financial settlements on behalf of the film’s producer. However, they also added it could be on track to release on time if it was sorted swiftly.

With audiences having already shared their theater experiences of the film on social media, this has perhaps been the case.

Keeping the fans in the loop

While in conversation with the New Indian Express, central star Silambarasan opened up about how they strived to keep audiences knowledgeable as the narrative developed:

“Maanaadu has been designed by Venkat Prabhu so that it can reach the masses. The backdrop itself is to simplify the concept. I play a guy who doesn’t understand what’s happening, and so, when he discusses it with his folks, the conversations ensure that the audience is kept informed too.”

He added: “I do think though that the audiences understand everything, and I think it’s wrong to believe that they can’t understand lofty ideas or are resistant to them. Only when we give them good content will we know what works.”
