Tamil superstar Vijay’s latest movie Beast has now been made available for streaming on Sun NXT, the OTT platform of Sun Pictures, which had bankrolled the movie. It is also available in multiple languages, including Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi on Netflix.

Beast follows the adventures of an ex-RAW agent, who unexpectedly finds himself in a high-stakes hostage situation. The terrorists who hijack a popular mall right at the heart of the city, are not aware of the ex-spy’s presence amid them and end up becoming his victims.

Written and directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, the film opened in cinemas across the world on April 13 to a rousing reception from the fans. However, the immediate critical reviews and the reactions from the audience were not in the film’s favour. Adding to the challenges, Yash’s most-awaited movie KGF: Chapter 2 was also released the next day and it instantly became the favourite of moviegoers across the country.
