Disney Hotstar is one of the few OTT platforms that has been actively acquiring movies for direct digital release on a regular basis. Hiphop Tamizha Adhi's Anbarivu and Dhanush's Maaran were the recent releases from the leading streaming giant. On that note, one more film has been acquired by Disney Hotstar for a direct OTT release and the official announcement on the same is out. Vikram Prabhu's upcoming intense action drama Taanakkaran has been confirmed for a direct digital release and the film is expected to be out in the first week of April.

The film is produced by SR Prabhu, known for bankrolling quality films like Maya, Maanagaram, Aruvi, Monster, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, and more. SR Prabhu made the official announcement on the OTT release through a new poster and the update has made the film buffs look forward to the film. Taanakkaran is directed by debutant Tamizh, an erstwhile associate of Vetri Maaran, who also garnered wide attention for his highly impactful performance as the police officer in Suriya's Jai Bhim. After speaking volumes with his stellar performance, Tamizh is now set for his directorial debut and let us hope it turns out to be a success.

Produced by Potential Studios, Taanakkaran has music composed by Ghibran while the cinematography and editing departments are headed by Madhesh Manickam and Philomin Raj respectively. While Vikram Prabhu plays the lead role, the film has Anjali Nair, Lal, MS Bhaskar, and Madhusudhan Rao in supporting roles. The teaser of the film that released a few months back looked highly promising with its intense content. Taanakkaran is said to deal with the problems and hardships faced by budding police officers in their training period. It is a zone that hasn't been explored by our filmmakers and it looks like an interesting film awaits us. The film's release date is expected to be announced in the next few days. Stay tuned.
