After receiving a massive response from the audience during the Pngal festival, Makers of “Master” decided to release the film on Amazon Prime Video from 29th of January. The film which was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, had Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das in the lead roles. The report on the film getting released after 16 days of theatrical release has left the ardent fans of actor Vijay in a confused state. However, it has been discovered that the film is getting released sooner due to the audience who are residing in foreign countries as they couldn’t witness the film in theatres due to COVID 19 protocol.
Actors Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi expressed their happiness over the film getting released in OTT platforms. Vijay said that he feels glad and believed that fans will enjoy the rivalry between John and Bhavani. “I am certain that the interesting duel between John and Bhavani will take the audiences on a roller-coaster ride of action, and drama,” Vijay said.

#Master has achieved break even in TN. Theatres are making a profit. But it doesn't END here! Master has been bringing audience back to cinemas for the survival of industry. Its NOT over yet. Its gonna to do it at least until Feb. This ultra-early OTT release comes as a dampener.— George (@VijayIsMyLife) January 26, 2021
