Nayanthara's Netrikann, Vijay Sethupathi - Taapsee's Annabelle Sethupathi, Kavin's Lift, Harish Kalyan - Priya Bhavani Shankar's Oh Mana Penne, and Sasikumar's MGR Magan are the recent Tamil films that had a direct OTT release on the Disney Hotstar platform. One more film has now joined the list and the official announcement regarding the same has been made. Prabhu Deva's long-awaited action drama, Pon Manickavel has been confirmed as a direct OTT release on the Disney Hotstar platform and it has also been revealed that the film will release this month, November.

Additionally, it has been revealed that the trailer of Pon Manickavel will be released today (November 10) on YouTube and that trailer should hopefully create more buzz for the film on social media. Produced by Nemichand Jhabak and Hitesh Jhabak, this film has music composed by D Imman who is currently riding high on the success of his latest release, Annaatthe. Pon Manickavel is directed by AC Mugil Chellappan who had earlier directed the Shanthnu starrer Kandaen. The film has editing by Shivanandeeswaran and cinematography by KG Venkatesh.

Nivetha Pethuraj plays the female lead in this film which has late director J Mahendran and Suresh Menon in crucial roles. Prabhu Deva will be seen playing a police officer in this film and notably, this is the first film in which he plays a cop. The film is expected to showcase Prabhu Deva in a new dimension and let us hope that the film strikes a chord with the audience.
