The makers are planning to reveal the news officially in the coming days. Securing a streaming deal is particularly crucial for the commercial success of Lover, given its small budget. As per the current industry trends, all new Tamil movies make their streaming debuts less than 30 days after their initial theatrical release. It’s safe to assume that Lover will also follow suit.
True Lover showcases the intricacies of the modern-day relationships. The film also stars Kanna Ravi, Saravanan, Geetha Kailasam, Harish Kumar, Nikhila Shankar, and Rini in pivotal roles. Nazareth Pasilian, Magesh Raj Pasilian, and Yuvaraj Ganesan produced the film jointly. Sean Roldan composed the tunes.
