‘Ponmagal Vandhal’, which is directed by debutant JJ Fredrick, features Jyothika in the lead role with popular faces K. Bhagyaraj, R Parthiban, Pandiarajan, Pratap Pothen and Thiagarajan in key roles. The film was initially planned to be released on March 27, but because of the Coronavirus outbreak, it was postponed. But now the producer of the film, Suriya’s 2D Entertainment, has decided to release Jyothika’s ‘Ponmagal Vandhal’ on an OTT platform on May 29.
The producer made this decision since the Coronavirus situation has not improved yet. The theater owners have protested against Suriya’s decision and reportedly asked Suriya not to release all his films on digital platforms. A lot of debates between theater owners and producers have happened regarding the direct OTT releases. But, Suriya has stuck to his decision and decided to release the film on an OTT platform anyway.
Jyothika’s ‘Ponmagal Vandhal’ is one of the bigger movies to have a direct premiere on an OTT platform. Movie fans who have been waiting to watch a new release, are excited to see the film on the OTT platform.
