Well, last year a lot of movies and TV shows had overrun their schedule. The fact is, some are still waiting to see a better light of day because they don’t want to waste the opportunity to give their audience a better cinematic experience. Some of these movies would be Bollywood’s multi-star Sooryavanshi, then Karnataka’s larger-than-life movie KGF Chapter 2. Similarly, the Doctor-starring Sivakarthikeyan has been queuing up for a release date since late 2020, but it seems that the creators need to make some big changes.
Doctor is a pretty high budget movie with some big names starring Priyanka Arul Mohan and Vinay Rai joining Sivakarthikeyan. To compensate for this, the creators expected it to embrace theaters only. So they fought quite a long battle, jumping from shift to shift. We’ve had multiple release dates in the last six months when it comes to Doctor. But things are now officially settled. So here’s a look at Doctor’s release and when to expect it.
Doctor release date
Doctor will be out soon in the coming months, but instead of a theatrical release, the film is shifting to Disney+ Hot Star. An exact release date has yet to be announced, but due to the fact that it’s all done and only looking for theaters that were open. We may not have to wait long for a shift to OTT. So with that in mind, Doctor is coming to Disney+ Hotstar in five different languages. First the original as in Tamil, in which the film was shot. Then dubbed versions of Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
Initially, the makers of Doctors heavily rejected an OTT release. The film always had theatrical plans from when it was due to be released in 2020 last year. But the covid-19 played a big part in making a movie jump. Then a release on March 26, 2021 was also postponed with the election of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly. There was also an announcement of the film’s release on the occasion of Eid on May 13, 2021. Now the same Covid-19 that has increased with a second wave in the south has halted the film and forced it to OTT as the last measure.
