Vijay Sethupathi and Shruti Haasan starrer, Laabam was initially gearing up for direct to OTT release. However, following a series of exciting developments, the makers decided to release the film in theatres on the 9th of September. So, cut to now, Laabam is gearing up for its digital premieres. The latest we hear is that the Vijay Sethupathi starrer will be made available for streaming on OTT from the 24th of this month.
Laabam will be streaming on Netflix from the 24th of October. An official announcement on the same will be made by Netflix shortly. The film garnered poor reviews from cinema-goers and critics alike during its theatrical release, and now, it remains to be seen if it can strike a chord with the OTT audience. SP Jhananathan directs Laabam, and it is billed to be a political thriller. The film has Shruti Hassan, Sai Dhanshika, and Nitish Veera in other vital roles.
Sun Network bagged the satellite rights of Laabam, and the television premieres date will be announced very soon. Vijay Sethupathi plays a hell-bent farmer revolting against a powerful and greedy industrialist who makes life impossible for the local farmers with his misdeeds and menacing attitude. The film is more of a satire on the modern-day political system. The film has a decent premise, but the execution, not quite. On a related note, Vijay Sethupathi was recently seen in Annabelle Sethupathi, which premiered on Disney + Hotstar on the 17th of September.
