Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir's Tamil-dubbed version is titled Pakkiri

Dhanush went international in a big way with the Russo Brothers’ action thriller The Gray Man but it was not the actor’s first international film. In 2018, dhanush starred in his maiden international project, the english film The Extraordinary journey of the Fakir, directed by Ken Scott. The movie addresses the topic of global immigration, portraying it positively. Beginning in India, the story follows the central character, Ajatashatru Lavash Patel, as he embarks on a journey to various destinations such as Paris, London, and Libya. Along the way, it highlights the challenges encountered by immigrants worldwide.

Released in france in 2018, it was released in India, the UK, the USA, Canada, singapore and malaysia on june 21. 2019. While The Extraordinary journey of the Fakir received positive reviews from all quarters, due to Dhanush’s popularity in the Tamil-speaking diaspora, it was decided to dub the film in tamil and release it in tamil Nadu.

The tamil version, named Pakkiri, was released in cinemas in the first quarter of 2020 but by then the COVID-19 pandemic had already spread worldwide. Due to the lockdown and the strict restrictions imposed upon people, Pakkiri suffered from poor footfall as people did not turn up in theatres to watch movies.

Due to this, Pakkiri is now being re-released in theatres 4 years later, hoping to do better business than the last time. In 2020, Sasikanth’s Y Not Studio released the film. This time ap international is releasing the film. It will hit theatres on march 22.
