Rajinikanth, the superstar, is all set to captivate audiences again with his highly anticipated action-packed film titled ‘Jailer’. Directed by Nelson, this cinematic extravaganza is bound to offer an exhilarating experience for fans. Scheduled for release on August 10 in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages, the film has been creating tremendous buzz since its announcement in February 2022 under the working title ‘Thalaivar 169’. Produced by Sun Pictures, the excitement surrounding ‘Jailer’ has transcended boundaries. It has garnered attention from both international viewers.

In the United States, there has been a response in sales figures for the premiere, with over $500K (approximately ₹4.1 crore) already accumulated. Industry insiders are buzzing about the possibility of the film surpassing the $1 million ( ₹8.2 crores) mark in its collections.

Back in India, anticipation is at an all-time high. On its opening day, the booking for ‘Jailer’ has already surpassed a gross of ₹8.80 crore. As the release date approaches, it is expected that this figure might even reach a milestone of ₹10 crores.

As a show of enthusiasm and backing for the movie, several workplaces in cities across South India, like Chennai and Bangalore, have announced a day off for their employees on the film’s release day. Additionally, specific organisations are going the extra mile by offering tickets to their staff members to encourage genuine viewership and combat piracy.

Diving into the story of the movie ‘Jailer’ tells the tale of Muthuvel Pandian, portrayed by Rajinikanth, a conscientious and compassionate jailer. He strives to prevent a gang from freeing their leader from prison. The film boasts a cast including Tamannaah Bhatia, Mohanlal, Jackie Shroff, Ramya Krishnan and others. This star-studded lineup adds to the appeal of the movie.

Following the release of ‘Annaatthe’ in 2021, which did not meet the box office expectations ‘Jailer’ could be his next elusive megahit. Overall, ‘Jailer’ promises to combine action and emotion, offering audiences an awaited cinematic experience.
