Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom and Seethakaathi fame director Balaji Tharaneetharan's long delayed Oru Pakka Kathai is finally set to have a release. Yes! This film will have a direct digital release on Zee 5 OTT streaming platform and it will be released on December 25, the Christmas day. Oru Pakka Kathai is the actual debut film for both Kalidas Jayaram and Megha Akash, who have now got several releases in their respective filmographies. Oru Pakka Kathai is touted to have a very intriguing story line and we know that director Balaji Tharaneetharan is someone who does not settle for the usual formula. The teaser of the film which released a few years before had got a very good response from the fans and it made everyone look forward to the film.

However, the film couldn't release on time due to several production related issues. The makers also faced problems with the Censor board (CBFC) who objected the usage of the word, 'intercourse' in the film. Now that the film is going to have a direct digital release, the team may not have to worry about censor. Oru Pakka Kathai is produced by KS Sreenivasan under the banner of Vasan's Visual Ventures and has music scored by Govind Vasantha. 96 fame director Prem Kumar has cranked the camera for this movie that is edited by Anthony.

The last few OTT releases in Tamil (like Soorarai Pottru, Mookuthi Amman, Andhaghaaram) have received very good responses and let us hope and wish that Oru Pakka Kathai manages to continue that momentum. Director Balaji Tharaneetharan will be a happy man as his film will finally be released after several years of wait. During the waiting period for this movie, he made Seethakaathi with Vijay Sethupathi.

Sharing her excitement about Oru Pakka Kathai's release, Megha Akash wrote, "Can’t wait for you all to see this one ! 💖🔥 @kalidas700 #BalajiTharaneethran". Similarly, Kalidas Jayaram was also relieved that the team's six year long wait finally came to an end. Kalidas tweeted, "After 6 freakin years 🔥🔥 ORU PAKKA KATHAI #Balajitharaneethran @akash_megha from the 25th I'd this month! Ensoyyyyyy 😉" . It can be noted that Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi had already extended his support to the film at several junctures in the past.
