Many of his recent films (in theaters and OTT) maaran, Jagame Thanthiram were failures. your hindi movie Atrangi Rewhile interesting, it had limited impact as it was an OTT release at the height of the pandemic.
Personally too, things weren’t looking up for Dhanush as he had announced his separation from his wife of 19 years.
Dhanush desperately needed a masala movie to get his mojo back in his homeland. And that’s what its newest release in theaters Thiruchitrambalam seems to have done. The film, which is unequivocally a mainstream offering, is not only being lauded, it is also restoring Dhanush’s lure as a box office star.
