Covid-19 lockdown in India has caused a lot of delays in releases of upcoming movies since March 2020. As a result, a lot of much hyped Tamil, Hindi and Telugu films are considering a direct OTT digital streaming release to avoid any further losses. Also, the increased viewership and subscription rates on Hostar, Prime Video, Netflix and Zee5 is making producers consider digital streaming releases as a strong possibility for upcoming movie releases.
A new Tamil thriller starring Jyotika ‘PonMagal Vandhal’ was announced in January 2020. Little did we know that one of the most awaited Tamil movies in 2020 will be fated for a digital streaming release due to the Covid-19 lockdown. The movie is written and directed by JJ Fredrick, It is going to be his debut film as a director. The film is produced by Suriya and Rajsekhar Pandian under a 2D Entertainment banner.
Cast of the film includes Jyotika, R. Prathiepan, K. Bhagyaraj, and Pratap Pothen in pivotal roles.
Jyothika’s movies are received well by the audience. It will be different compared to contemporary films which will make it a success. The movie revolves around a courtoom drama and we can’t wait to watch more of it. Ponmagal Vandhal was scheduled for a theatrical release on the 27th of March 2020. Ponmagal Vandhal is all set to release on Prime Video on the 29th of May 2020.
Will Ponmagal Vandhal’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Prime Video Viewership?
Ponmagal Vandhal is one of the most awaited crime thriller films with Jyothika playing the lead. Considering the amount of expectations from Jyothika’s fans at stake, the early pirated release of Ponmagal Vandhal Tamil movie online for free download, is likely to dent its earnings.
As emphasized earlier, modern day movies depend a lot on opening week collections as a significant source of return on investment. With the advent of Tamilrockers and other online movie streaming sites, film makers face a daunting task of dealing with this situation.
However, Ponmagal Vandhal Tamil movie is hyped well enough and the cast of Jyothika in a significant role will definitely attract his fan base to the Amazon Prime Video to watch the movie. Also, Ponmagal Vandhal promises to be a gripping action thriller attempt and watching it on a mere 480P or 720P print will not do justice for the entertainment at stake, we believe.
On the other hand, first hand reactions of Ponmagal Vandhal are promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Ponmagal Vandhal on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run. Most of the recent movies produced in the Tamil movie industry have been released on Tamilrockers on the day of the release.
