New Delhi: Tamil superstar Vijay’s latest offering Master, an action thriller, will now be premiering on Amazon Prime Video on January 29. The film stars Vijay Sethupathy as the antagonist. In an announcement, the streaming giant on Wednesday wrote, “Enroll for the biggest class of 2021. Meet #MasterOnPrime, January 29!”
Master follows the story of a professor, played by Vijay, who is transferred to a juvenile centre where he meets Sethupathi’s antagonist. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film, also starring Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, is produced by XB Film Creators and Seven Screen Studios.
Master became the first post-pandemic film to enter 100 crore club despite cinema halls offering 50 per cent occupancy in the wake of novel coronavirus.
Talking about film’s OTT release, Vijay said, “I am certain that the interesting duel between John and Bhavani will take the audiences on a roller-coaster ride of action and drama.”
“With the film’s global digital release on Amazon Prime Video, we are hoping to reach a wider audience that’s been at home, and reach regions that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible,” said Sethupathi.
