For a movie that is shot in India, it sure took a while to get here to Indian audiences. But we will finally get to witness Christopher Nolan’s latest cinematic spectacle — Tenet.

On November 5, the Maharashtra government announced reopening of cinemas in the state with 50 per cent of seating capacity outside containment zones. Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari starring Diljit Dosanjh, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Manoj Bajpayee will be one of the first Hindi films to be released in theatres. But now, global hit Tenet is also gearing up for a release this month, according to Mumbai Mirror.


But before you head to the theatres for the film, here’s what to expect.

Mumbai Mirror‘s source revealed the film is expected to hit theatres in the third week of November. “Had the announcement come a week earlier, they would have arrived on the Diwali weekend. They are currently speaking to the stakeholders, including cinema owners about release strategy and are looking to open in India either on November 20 or the week after,” the source said.

Tenet’s original release date was disturbed due to the global pandemic, but Christopher Nolan was adamant to let audiences experience his film in the theatres. It eventually hit UK theatres on August 26 and the US on September 3. It was praised by critics and managed to collect $53 million worldwide on its opening weekend.



In a recent interview, Nolan revealed he was “thrilled” with the way the film fared in the midst of a pandemic and was quoted saying, “I am worried that the studios are drawing the wrong conclusions from our release—that rather than looking at where the film has worked well and how that can provide them the much needed revenue, they are looking at where it hasn’t lived up to the pre-Covid expectations and will start using that as an excuse to make exhibition take all the losses from the pandemic instead.”
