The tinseltown is in an uproar as Thangalaan, one of the year's most highly anticipated movies, readies for its massive release. This historical drama starring Chiyaan Vikram and directed by Pa Ranjith takes place in the Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) between the years 1870 and 1940. The film follows a group of miners as they fight against unfair working conditions and other forms of oppression.

However, Thangalaan is more than just a popcorn drama. The film has a clear purpose and a bold vision. Thangalaan's producers have a grand scheme to enter the film in the Academy Awards as well as eight other international competitions.

Producer Dhananjayan claims the film's story can be appreciated by audiences everywhere, so the studio is eager to see where it goes. He promised that the film would make its debut at film festivals beginning in August 2023 and that it would eventually contend for an Oscar.

Thangalaan is a magnum opus project that has exceeded its planned budget by 50%, but the makers are keen on developing the film to an international standard. Chiyaan Vikram has put a lot of effort into his character in the film, and the makers assure fans that his role will be the best among all his previous best.

The film also stars Pasupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Parvathy Tiruvothu, Daniel Caltigarone, Harikrishnan and many others. The music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar, who has delivered some chartbusters. Thangalaan is said to be scheduled for a Pongal release in 2024, in pan-Indian languages. The film is expected to create history at the box office as well as at the awards circuit.
