Xavier Britto of XB Film Creators, who is bankrolling Vijay-starrer ‘Master’, has said that the film will release either for Deepavali this year or Pongal 2021. It is to be noted that the movie, which was scheduled to hit the screens for Tamil New Year, has been stalled due to Covid-19.
Britto has also said the film will release only in theatres and they do not have plans for OTT release. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of ‘Maanagaram’ and ‘Kaithi’ fame, the movie has Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Andrea Jeremiah, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj and Arjun Das in key roles.
Music is Anirudh Ravichander, cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan and editing by Philomen Raj. Director Rathnakumar of ‘Meyadha Maan’ and ‘Aadai’ fame, who has penned dialogues for ‘Master’, said recently: “The interval block is my favorite moment in the film. I’m sure it will be a blast”. Rathna also reiterated Pon Parthiepan’s earlier comment about the punch dialogues.
He added: “Master is not a film filled with explicit punch dialogues. Also, we shouldn’t write specific punchlines for Vijay sir. Sometimes, even his casual dialogue will be celebrated in theaters”.
Arjun Das, who plays a role in ‘Master’, has said, “I have watched the trailer 6 times. I think the trailer will release once the release date is confirmed but trust me that whenever the trailer releases, it will be worth the wait.”
