As the hype around “Pan-Indian Cinema” is maintained despite several failures and few successes, we come now to yet another pan-India labeled film—Rajinikanth’s Jailer. The difference is that this film actually has a pan-Indian cast that is expected to pull in crowds from across the country.

Action films have been at the helm of global cinema in 2023, like Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning – Part One and more. The Nelson Dilipkumar directorial Jailer is expected to join their ranks.

The film follows the story of Muthuvel Pandian, a strict yet compassionate jailor who learns that a gang is trying to rescue their leader from prison, and he sets out to stop them.
