Films released in March this year had a dismal performance at the box office. Not because of their content but due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As soon as the coronavirus declared as a pandemic, theaters across India got shut down. This resulted in the loss of the films that are already running in the theaters. One such film is Walter, directed by U. Anbarasan. This cop thriller featured Sibi Sathyaraj, Sanam Shetty, and Shirin Kanchwala in the lead roles. The film will start streaming on Sun Nxt from the 22nd of this month.
Earlier today, Sun Nxt has announced the digital release date of Walter. The statement read that this film will premiere on June 22. Walter was earlier slated for the release on January 24. But it got postponed and had hit the screens on March 13. Within a couple of days of its release, theaters got shut down. Thus, the movie ended up as a financial failure at the box office. Many people haven't watched it as well. Most of them are also unaware of its release. Now, as it will be out on Sun Nxt, people who missed the film can watch it online.
Walter marked the directorial debut of Anbarasan. It got produced by Shruthi Tilak under the banner 11:11 Productions Pvt. Ltd. Nataraj and Samuthirakani have played the other important roles in this movie. Dharmapraksh composed the music of it. Rasamadhi handled the cinematography and Elayaraja did the editing of the movie.
