'Thalapathy' Vijay's Master has been the talk of the town ever since the film was officially announced in October 2019, with production completing wrapping in February earlier this year. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj under Xavier Britto’s XB Film Creators banner, the film has Vijay pitted against 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi, who is playing the antagonist, with chart-buster music once again delivered by Anirudh Ravichander. With the release plans facing a setback due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans were left with little to no big updates, which was however compensated as the makers released the much-awaited Master teaser on Saturday as a Diwali treat. 

The Master teaser has been smashing records left and right, with fans' response nothing short of thunderous towards the latest visuals of Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi in the action film. With fans still in a celebration mode, XB Film Creators has now announced on Twitter that the Master teaser has become the most-liked teaser in India with over 16 million views and 1.6 million likes in real-time in a span of 16 hours. The teaser has satisfied fans of both Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi around the world, who continue to sing praises for director Lokesh Kanagaraj, including the entire Master team. Based on the teaser alone, we can without a shadow of a doubt come to a conclusion that the makers have prepared a solid mass masala action thriller, with the makers as well as the fans now waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic situation to get better in order for the film to release in theatres. 

Although no official release date has been announced yet, we can expect the release plans to be revealed in the days ahead considering the Master teaser has now kick-started the promotions for the film once again. As of now, there is a strong talk that the film will hit the screens in early 2021, most likely as a Pongal release in January. Both producer Xavier Britto and director Lokesh Kanagaraj revealed sometime back that Master will only come out in theatres, while adding that it is the only way the film ought to be watched. Master also includes Malavika Mohanan as the female lead, followed by Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah, Gouri Kishan, Master Mahendran, KPY Dheena, Ramya Subramanian, Azhagam Perumal among others forming the supporting cast.
