Sree Gokulam Movies bags Kerala distribution rights for Vijay's GOAT

Sree Gokulam Movies has bagged the Kerala distribution rights for Thalapathy Vijay’s The Greatest Of All Time (GOAT). The distribution company announced the news on social media on Friday, 5 July.

The upcoming Tamil film is scheduled to hit theatres worldwide on 5 September. The Venkat Prabhu directorial evoked huge expectations from fans, audiences, and industry insiders.

Vijay’s fans are eagerly awaiting updates about the movie since it will be his last venture before his political entry.

Vijay plays a dual role in GOAT, as father and son.

On Saturday, 22 June, as the actor turned 50, the makers of GOAT released a Bday Shots video, which broke the internet and became a hot topic of discussion on social media platforms.

The 50-second BDay Shots video depicted a thrilling bike chase and stunts involving some goons. The video ended with Vijay, in a dual role, retaliating against the goons by opening fire at them.

The makers used de-ageing technology to create the younger version of Vijay in the film.

The Bday Shots video of GOAT also featured some slow-motion shots while introducing Vijay (father-son) and a peppy background score composed by music director Yuvan Shankar Raja.

The makers also launched the second melody song, “Chinna Chinna Kangal” from GOAT. The song had the AI-generated voice of the late playback singer Bhavatharini. Also, Vijay lent his voice to the tune.

In April, the makers released the “Whistle Podu” song, which broke the internet. Vijay lent his voice to the tune. Madhan Karky penned its lyrics.

In GOAT, the Tamil star hero plays the role of a scientist, who gets targeted by a gang of notorious criminals. Meenakshi Chaudhary plays the leading lady. Siddhartha Nuni is the cinematographer.
