Vazhakku released online

Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas and director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan recently hit the headlines, over the delay in release of their film Vazhakku.
Amid the filmmaker’s claims that the actor's reluctance had hindered the release of the film Vazhakku, he has made a move that has shocked film buffs. Sanal Kumar Sasidharan has uploaded the entire film on his personal social media page.

Vazhakku Released Online

The Sexy Durga filmmaker released the preview copy link of the complete film on his Facebook page. “Cinema should be viewed by the audience. For anyone who wants to watch it, here is Vazhakku/The Quarrel. Anyone who wants to understand, will now know why the movie hasn’t been released (sic),” he captioned it.
This move comes at a time when Sanal Kumar Sasidharan has publicly accused actor and producer Tovino Thomas of reluctance to release the film in both theatres and on OTT platforms. He said that this is due to the actor's concerns over the potential negative effect the film will have on his career.

Tovino Responds to Sanal Kumar Sasidharan

Earlier, soon after Sanal levelled allegations against him, Tovino Thomas took to his social media page to address the issue along with co-producer Girish in a Live session. The actor denied the allegations being made and clarified that the decision to produce the film was driven by his respect for the director's craft, adding that he invested money in the production without expecting any returns.
Tovino further stated that Sanal Kumar didn't want to give the film to a particular OTT platform because this meant handing over creative rights to streaming platforms as well.
Tovino also spoke about the time that the director rejected the idea of participating in the virtual Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI).
Vazhakku, featuring Tovino Thomas, Kani Kusruti, Sudev Nair, Azees Nedumangad, and Byju Netto, premiered at the 27th International Film Festival of Kerala and won multiple accolades at the 54th Kerala State Film Awards.
