Hip-hop Tamizha Aadhi starrer Veeran is Tamil cinema's first legitimate superhero movie, where the protagonist inherits supenatural powers after a freak accident. The movie released in theaters on June 2, 2023 and has been running on packed screenings ever since.
Veeran produced by Sathya Jyothi Films is a mid-sized movie, but its content opened to positive reception in an otherwise dry summer in Tamil cinema. In its successful week 2, Veeran continues to screen in 200+ theaters across Tamil Nadu, despite facing competition from new releases this Friday.
