We have countless movies in their production phase garnering a lot of attention towards it. Almost all of them happen to release at one point or another even after getting delayed and postponed from time to time. But there are some movies that fades into the abyss and are eventually forgotten resulting in it getting stalled due to unexplained reasons. The film's entire process from pre-production to post-production would have been complete but unfortunately does not live to see the light of day. However saddening that may be, it sure does not leave our minds as we constantly think about them and wonder how their fate would be when they release. Let us look at some such films (in no particular order of importance):


The film was launched in 2016 and was scheduled to release in August 2017. It has almost been 5 years since then and all we have got are a couple of posters, 3 teasers and 1 song. It has been getting postponed and delayed for various reasons but we have not lost hope and believe the film will hit the screens someday. Written and directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, the film stars Chiyaan Vikram in the lead along with Aishwarya Rajesh, R. Parthiban, Sathish Krishnan, Simran, Dhivyadharshini and Raadhika Sarathkumar.

This Sundar C movie starring Vishal, Anjali and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar was supposed to release nearly 6 years ago in 2016. But due to some financial issues, it was not as lucky as other movies that get theatrical releases. The film still awaits its release date and so do we.
