Election Movie OTT Release Date

Election digital rights information is yet to be announced by the makers, and the movie will hit the screens on 17 May 2024. Director Thamizh’s debut movie, “Seththumaan,” was released directly on the OTT platform, skipping the theatrical release. Even though there were very few expectations for the movie before its release, it received good reviews from critics and was able to achieve a decent viewership on the OTT platform. As that movie was produced by the talented director Pa Ranjith, it slowly picked up interest among the Tamil audience after its release. Let us see if Thamizh can entertain audiences with his second movie, “Election,” without any support from such talented directors.

Actor Vijay Kumar is playing the lead role in this political drama. He was seen in the movie “Fight Club,” which is loosely based on the politics in North Chennai, and now he is once again coming up with a movie that has politics as its central point. Even though “Fight Club” was presented by the talented director Lokesh Kanagaraj, it remained an average movie at the box office. Let us see if Vijay Kumar can score a success, at least with “Election,” a movie that is getting ready for a theatrical release very soon. The “Election” team has yet to confirm the details of the official theatrical and OTT release dates of this movie.

Election Movie OTT Platform (Digital Rights)

Actress Preethi Asrani, who earlier played a few lead roles in Tamil and Telugu TV serials, is playing the female lead in this movie. She earlier did a few movies in Tamil and Telugu as a lead actress, but never received the required recognition for her talent in acting. But her recent movie “Ayothi,” starring Sasikumar in the lead role, received a tremendous response and remained one of the biggest hits released in 2023. She started to receive plenty of offers in Tamil with the success of “Ayothi,” and the “Election” movie is one of them. Let us hope that she will entertain the audience with her performance once again with her character from this movie.

The music for this political drama was composed by Govind Vasantha. It is quite interesting that a music composer, who earlier had chartbusters like “96,” starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha in the lead roles, is now composing the music for a political-based movie. It will be a challenging task for this musician to impress the audience, as it will have a few mass moments that need a great background score to arouse the audience in the theatres. Let us see how well Govind Vasantha will handle this movie as a musician. “Election” movie team is yet to announce the name of the OTT platform on which this movie will have its premiere after the theatrical run.
