The highly anticipated film Annabelle Sethupathi has released today (September 17) on Disney+ Hotstar. The latest release has now become a victim of piracy as it has leaked on infamous websites like Movierulz and Tamilrockers.
Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Taapsee Pannu in the lead role, the comedy-horror drama has been penned and helmed by Deepak Sundarrajan, son of veteran director-actor R Sundarrajan. With its release on the popular streaming platform, the film has garnered a mixed response, with many calling it a cliched one that has sporadic moments evoking laughter. Apart from Tamil, the film has also released in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.

Initially titled Annabelle Subramaniam, the film's shoot commenced in Jaipur on August 28 last year. Entirely shot in a single schedule, the film's sequences were captured in breathtaking locations of City Palace, Rambagh Palace and Samode Palace.
Annabelle Sethupathi's songs and background scores are composed by Krishna Kishor. For the unversed, Kishor has earlier worked as a percussionist with eminent personalities including AR Rahman, Anirudh Ravichander and other renowned Bollywood composers.
So far, 5 songs have been released- 'Vaanil Pogum Megham', 'Ghost Party', 'Anange', 'Ginger Soda' and a reprise version of Anange.
