About Marakkar release date in India
Marakkar is originally a Malayalam-language movie that will be released along with its dubbed versions in Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Telugu languages. It is the Malayalam cinema’s most expensive film to date. The initial plan for release was in March 2020, but as Kerala had announced the lockdown on March 23, the release plans were put on hold as the film involves a large cast and crew, including international artistes and hence they didn’t want an OTT release. The overseas rights of the film had already been sold and the movie had to open worldwide to recover its massive budget. After a much longer wait, the movie is scheduled for theatrical release on May 13, 2021, coinciding with Eid al-Fitr.
