Released on Jan 13, 2021, Master opened to packed-houses, providing much-needed relief to the distributors and exhibitors. The movie is still going strong at the box office with the worldwide gross collection all set to cross Rs 250 crore mark.
It should be marked, Master was the first big release in theatres since the opening of cinema halls post-pandemic. It managed to bring the audience to the theatres, proving the start power of superstar Vijay.
While Master is still having a good run at the box office, its early digital premiere has left everyone shocked and surprised. The movie was planned to stream from February 12th but to everyone’s surprise, the streaming platform preponed the digital release to Jan 29, 2021. This has come as a big shock for the distributors and exhibitors who are still raking decent money at the box office.
Actor Vijay is happy that the fans can enjoy the film on Amazon Prime Video in India and across the world. “I am certain that the interesting duel between John and Bhavani will take the audiences on a roller-coaster ride of action, and drama,” the actor said in a statement.
Written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Master is an action-entertainer starring Thalapathy Vijay in a lead role. The movie revolves around a young professor named John Durairaj (Vijay) who is addicted to alcohol and is sent to a juvenile home to teach children. His encounter with Bhavani (Vijay Sethupathi), a deadly gangster forms the crux of the movie.
