Seven Screen Studio is a mainstream Indian film-production and distribution company based in Chennai. The company was started by SS Lalit Kumar in the year 2017.


Seven Screen Studio distributed Vanamagan and Kaatru Veliyidai in the year 2017 and started producing their own films in the following year of 2018. The company’s first production-release was ‘Asuravadham’ starring Sasikumar and Nandita Swetha, a revenge thriller film written and directed by Maruthupandian. The film was released on 29th June 2018 in theatres across the country and was received well.[1] The film was completed in 40 days and was shot across various areas in and around Kodaikanal and Dindigul.[2][3][4]

Seven Screen Studio’s next release, '96 (Tamil) film directed by the debutant C. Prem Kumar, starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha, was appreciated by both the critics and the general-audience and was considered a hit.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11] At the 2018 Filmfare Awards South, the film won five awards, including Best Actor and Best Actress awards. Trisha won two awards for Best Actress and also received nominations at Ananda Vikatan Cinema Awards and Norway Tamil Film Festival Awards. The film was also nominated for several categories at the Edison Awards.[12] It was later remade in Kannada and Telugu respectively.[13] The Telugu version was directed by C. Prem Kumar himself, which starred Samantha and Sharwanand in the lead roles of Jaanu and Ram.[14]

During the success-meet for '96, Producer SS Lalit Kumar announced his foray into full-fledged production. He launched the film titled ‘Tughlaq Darbar’ as his maiden outing, starring Vijay Sethupathi.[15] This political-satire film has been directed by debutant Delhi Prasad Deenadayal, who is a former collaborator of director Balaji Tharaneetharan. Balaji Tharaneetharan has also written the screenplay and the dialogues for this film. The film stars Raashi Khanna, Parthiban, Karunakaran, Manjima Mohan and Bagavathi Perumal in crucial roles. The soundtrack and background score for this movie has been composed by Govind Vasantha[16][17][18].[19]

The production house’s next outing ‘Sarbath’, a rom-com starring Kathir, Soori and Rahasya Gorak, had its direct television premiere on Colors Tamil on 11th April 2021.[20][21][22] The film saw Kathir and Soori collaborate for the first time.[23] The film marked the directorial debut of Prabhakaran who was a former assistant director to the filmmaker Balaji Sakthivel.[24] The film was completed in 2019 but its release got delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sarbath is now streaming on Netflix.[25]

In 2021, Seven Screen Studio produced Master starring Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Andrea Jeremiah, Arjun Das and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj.[26] The music album of this movie, which was composed by Anirudh Ravichander, was unveiled at The Leela Palace Hotel in Chennai on 15th March 2020. The event was telecasted live on Sun TV.[27] The film was the first theatrical release after the Covid-19-induced lockdown period. The movie opened in the theatres on the 13th of January 2021, a day before the Pongal festival[28] and was simultaneously released in over 1000 theatres across the state of Tamil Nadu, reviving the theatre business that had been majorly hit by the pandemic.[29][30][31]

Master was the highest-grossing film in the United Arab Emirates, collecting $1.4 million within two days, surpassing Wonder Woman 1984 and Tenet.[32] Deadline Hollywood declared Master to be the biggest post-pandemic worldwide release as well as the highest-grossing film in international markets.[33][34] It managed to top the global box office rankings at the time of its release.[35]

In 2019, Seven Screen Studio announced their new production, an action-thriller flick starring Chiyaan Vikram.[36] This film that’s yet to release is being directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu.[37] Academy-winner A. R. Rahman has been roped in to compose the music for the film.[38] The film also marks the Tamil debut of the KGF actress Srinidhi Shetty and the Moothon-star Roshan Mathew.[39][40] Former Indian Cricketer Irfan Pathan makes his acting debut in this movie.[41] This movie which was initially addressed as ‘Vikram 58’ has been titled ‘Cobra’. The crew has shot in Russia during winter.[42] The crew released a single called 'Thumbi Thullal’ on 29th June 2020, which was the first track composed by A. R. Rahman for this movie.[43]

Seven Screen Studio’s upcoming projects are Chiyaan 60 and Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal. The former is directed by Jigarthanda director Karthik Subbaraj. Chiyaan 60 was officially announced by producer SS Lalit Kumar on June 8th, 2020.[44] The film will star Vikram and Vikram’s son, Dhruv Vikram, in a crucial role.[45] The film also stars Simran, Vani Bhojan, Bobby Simha and Sananth.[46][47][48] The film will have its soundtrack and background music scored by Santhosh Narayanan.[49] The principal production has been taking place in and around various cities in India.

Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal is a love triangle film that stars Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and Samantha.[50] The film will see Vignesh Shivn collaborate with the composer Anirudh Ravichander for the third consecutive time. This album will be Anirudh Ravichander’s 25th film as a music composer.[51] The film’s principal production began on 10th December 2020 in Chennai. The crew released a romantic soundtrack titled ‘Rendu Kaadhal’ on Valentine’s day, 2021.[52] The song was penned by the director Vignesh Shivn himself.[53] The film is slated to be released by the end of the year 2021.[54]
