Directed by Vikram Kumar and produced by Suriya with musical from Oscar award winner AR Rahman, the Science fiction romantic thriller, “24” is distributed worldwide by Eros International and Studio Green.

In addition to India, Suriya’s much-awaited “24” will also be released in 273 screens across the United States and other major foreign countries on May 5. The crew has also organized a special show in Fremont, California on the release day, which will be attended by the actor’s family.
The film is expected to receive a grand opening since the teaser, trailer and the audio of “24” had indeed created positive hype among people.
The official trailer of “24” on YouTube has so far received 3,177,156 views since its release on April 11.
According to Tamil film industry analysts, the actual presence of Suriya in the US during the release date will have a significant impact on his fans. It will also help boost the revenue of the movie. As always, the legendary Variamuthu has penned the songs for “24, who had produced great songs in “Endhiran“.
With the movie “24” releasing in two languages in as many as 1500 theatres worldwide, 600 of them accounts to overseas countries especially the US, UK, and UAE.
Commenting on “24” over Twitter, Celebrity PR Ramesh revealed that the advanced booking of the film in Tamil Nadu had got a tremendous response from people especially IT professionals. This is because they want to know about the kind of technology used to make the movie, which has already bagged the “U” certificate from the regional censor board.
Initially, the director Vikram Kumar started the project and began to shoot the movie in 2009 with Vikram in the lead but was subsequently shelved off due to dispute after he changed the script. In 2014, Suriya expressed interest to act in the film and the director immediately went ahead with the schedule without any difficulty.
It remains to be seen how “24” performs at the box office since Suriya was unable to produce any big hits recently.
