Pulikkuthi Pandi is the next venture from Sun Entertainment that will have a direct television release. During this pandemic and Covid times, leading television network Sun TV decided to acquire the rights and release films directly on their television channel without having the theatrical release. We had seen the Prasanna starrer Naanga Romba Busy, produced by Sundar C, having a direct television release and it premiered on Diwali day on Sun TV. The film released on Sun NXT streaming platform the next day. Pulikkuthi Pandi is the next film in the pipeline and it is all set to have its premiere for the festive occasion of Pongal. Pulikkuthi Pandi will be aired on January 15, coming Friday, at 6.30 PM on Sun TV.

Details regarding the digital release is yet to be known, but it is more or less expected to release on January 16. Pulikkuthi Pandi is directed by Muthaiya who is known for his rural action entertainers like Kuttipuli, Komban, Marudhu, Kodiveeran, Devarattam, etc. The film features Vikram Prabhu in the titular role and Lakshmi Menon as the female lead. Notably, the film marks Lakshmi Memnon’s comeback to Tamil cinema after a long gap. Singam Puli, KPY Dheena, Vela Ramamoorthy, Samuthirakani, play supporting roles.

Ahead of the premiere, the makers have now released the trailer of the film. The trailer doesn’t leave a strong impact on the audience because of the fact that we have seen similar shots, sequences and premise in some of the earlier films made by Muthaiya. The audience feels that there is nothing fresh or new about the trailer of Pulikkuthi Pandi and it looks like director Muthaiya has made a film that seems to be in his comfort zone. However, Vikram Prabhu is full of energy and shows good promise as the angry young man, Pulikkuthi Pandi.

It has been quite some time since we saw Vikram Prabhu in a complete rural film and hence the makeover looks interesting. Lakshmi Menon also impresses with her screen presence, despite coming only for a short time in the trailer. The fans will surely be excited to see Lakshmi Menon back on screen after a few years. The film is touted to be high on action and the trailer is also suggestive of that. Let us wait until January 15 to see how the film is received by the Tamil audience.
