Official: Odiyan to be released in 31 countries!!
We are exactly a week away from the release of ‘Odiyan’, arguably the most hyped Malayalam movie in recent years. The movie is getting ready to storm screens on December 14 amidst massive hype. The pre-release buzz is even bigger than ‘Pulimurugan’, that trade experts believe the movie has the potential to become the next 100 crore grosser from Mollywood. As of now, only ‘Pulimurugan’ and ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ feature in the elite 100 crore club.
True to the hype, ‘Odiyan’ is getting a huge release worldwide. According to the makers, the movie will be released in around 4000 screens in 31 countries across the world. Apart from the usual overseas centres like Middle East, UK, US and Australia, the movie will also be opening in countries like France, Poland, Japan and New Zealand. It is releasing simultaneously in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu languages, which is the first for a Malayalam movie. The movie will be screening with English subtitles.
Last day, director Shrikumar Menon had tweeted,
“Proud moment for Malayalam Cinema. Odiyan set for a truly world release by releasing in 31 countries apart from an all india release on Dec 14th. The interesting fact is that it’s released in Malayalam with English subtitles. #odiyanrisesaroundtheglobe”
Mohanlal’s home production banner Aashirvad Cinemas is funding the movie. Kerala bookings for the movie will be starting in full swing from this weekend.
