Dhanush's highly anticipated and most awaited film, Jagame Thandhiram will release on June 18. The official announcement regarding the release was made by the makers yesterday (April 27), and it has made everyone look forward to the film. As already announced, the film will skip the theatrical release and will have a direct digital release on the Netflix OTT platform. The fans and film buffs were eagerly waiting to experience the film on the big screen and the makers had also initially promised that the film will come out in theatres. However, in a few days, the makers announced that the film will have a direct OTT release and it turned out to be a disappointment for the fans and audience who were anticipating to see the movie on the big screen.

Jagame Thandhiram was planned and shot for a theatrical viewing experience and it will obviously have several exciting theatrical mass moments. Due to the current circumstances, we will have to settle for a viewing on our smaller screens. Jagame Thandhiram is directed by Karthik Subbaraj and it is believed that this will be one of his best works. The film's teaser which released a few months before had got an outstanding reception from the Tamil audience and it was packed in an interesting manner. Dhanush seems to have got an intriguing character to play and it looks like the fans are going to enjoy Suruli.

Produced by Sashikanth's Y Not Studios, Jagame Thandhiram has music scored by Santhosh Narayanan who has already delivered two chartbuster numbers - 'Rakita Rakita Rakita' and 'Bujji'. The rest of the songs and trailer are expected to be released soon. Aishwarya Lekshmi plays the female lead in this film, which also has Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, Sharath Ravi, Deepak Paramesh, Sanchana Natarajan in supporting roles. Game of Thrones fame Hollywood actor James Cosmo plays the key antagonist of the film. Shreyaas Krishna has handled the film's cinematography, while the editing is taken care of by Vivek Harshan, who is a regular member of Karthik Subbaraj's team.

Dhanush's last release, Karnan was a sensational hit at the box office and it also earned highly positive reviews from the critics. Let us hope that Dhanush's success streak continues with Jagame Thandhiram as well. For now, check out the official announcement tweet about Jagame Thandhiram's release here:
