The only way for theatres to survive is to have a festival release of Master. That is exactly what is going to happen though no one is aware of the safety protocols that are going to be in place for the release. Before that we have a trailer release on New year which will also add to the hype and satisfy the craze of Thalapathy fans. After that when the fans go to the theatre it will be perfect. Master will release on 13th January for Thai Pongal. This will be the big festival release after a long time and hopefully it will meet the expectations.
Now the government has announced that there will be a 100 percent occupancy for the Pongal releases Master and Eswaran. Both Vijay and STR have personally requested the CM this and hence this move. Though it seems like a good move for cinema we have to see how it pans out in the long run. Will Master and Eswaran both withstand the scare of Corona and set an example for other movies to be released, Let’s see. It will be good to see two big stars clash. Hopefully the fans stay safe with all the safety protocols intact.
