‘Annaatthe’ to ‘Doctor’: A peek into Tamil cinema’s exciting 2021 release calendar

Master seems to have shown the way to the rest. Within a couple of weeks of the Vijay-starrer releasing in theatres, and its subsequent OTT release, Tamil cinema has woken up from the deep slumber it had been forced into due to the pandemic.

After a dry 2020, when Kollywood fans were digging into content on OTTs and re-visiting older classics, 2021 looks promising and exciting for film buffs.

Whether theatres will stage a grand comeback or if OTTs gain more ground remains to be seen, but the line-up for this year is packed with star power.


It has been a while since we saw Rajinikanth go rural. Agreed, there was a little portion of it in Petta, but Annaatthe promises to be a full-fledged entertainer and on the lines of the Superstar’s earlier hits like Padayappa and Arunachalam.

That it also stars Nayanthara, Khushbu, Meena, Keerthy Suresh and Prakash Raj makes things more interesting. The film is directed by Siva, who proved that he had the formula for success with Ajith’s Viswasam. Can he repeat that with Annaatthe? The film is scheduled for a Deepavali 2021 release.
