Actor Sasi Kumar catapulted himself into the hearts of Tamil audience through the classic cult drama Subramaniapuram. Unfortunately, after that flick the actor has not had a solid commercial success in the industry yet. But the actor has several movies in his kitty to pull one soon. The Kutty Puli actor was last seen on screen in the sports action drama Kaari which hit the theaters under the direction of debutant story teller M. Hemanth Kumar with actress Parvathi Arun as the female lead. The film was released in theaters on 25th of November this year. The drama did not live up to the expectations of the audience, and as a result did not do well in the box office. Now, we have an update on the project.
The production house has announced on social media that the entertainer will be released on OTT platform. Kaari will be screened on ZEE5 video streaming platform on 23rd of this month. Music director D Imman has announced the news. Taking to his official twitter handle, the musician shared a poster from the flick, and wrote, “Kaari premieres on December 23 only on the ZEE5 app! Praise God!” Here is the post made by the music director.

Actor Sasi Kumar plays the character Sethu, a proficient horse jockey based in Chennai whose life gets embroiled in the fight against corporates in support of the villagers of Kaariyoor in Ramnad district of Tamil Nadu. Kaari is themed around corporate greed, pro animal liberation, and the morality of meat eating. Speaking to a leading media house in the state, producer S. Lakshman said, “Kaari is a complete family entertainer. There is love, loss, pain, betrayal, sacrifice, and action sequences to keep the audience invested till the very end. The film also explores our tradition, significance of Jallikattu, and how all these are endangered by corporate cupidity. I am glad that Kaari is going to stream on the ZEE5 OTT platform. Our film will now be reaching a larger pool of audience. I am positive that the audience will love it.”
