In 2012, the Indian animation studio Toonz Animation announced it was making an animated movie called Swamy Ayyappan about the Hindu god Ayyappa. You can see the trailer for it here:

But my question is, was this movie ever released in any form, whether in theaters, direct-to-DVD, or online?

Wikipedia and IMDB say the release date was October 29, 2012, but I think that's out-of-date information. This post from the official Facebook page says it was still in post-production as of November 2014. So did it release some time between November 2014 and now? If not, is it going to release in future?

    @Rahul Yeah, that's a possibility, because the November 2014 Facebook post says "Swami Ayyappan is in the post- production phase and we're hoping for distributors." May 10, 2017 at 15:23

Actually this movie is released and avaliable on amazon prime video. And movie premier also happened on big magic channel where i watch the movie in hindi. Lots of people don't know because they are not aware of that.

  • Hello welcome to Movies & TV. Can you give a screenshot of this movie being available on Amazon Prime or somewhere else? Just for the sake of reference.

Well some movies get stuck because of distribution issues.

But my question is, was this movie ever released in any form, whether in theaters, direct-to-DVD, or online?

It seems that this is being sold on Amazon.in. At the time of writing this answer (11 May 2017) it's out of stock.

  • I think Amazon just listed it because they were planning to release it on DVD. But I still haven't seen any indication that they actually did. May 10, 2017 at 20:46
  • @KeshavSrinivasan: Yes it appears that it never landed in market. There are no reviews or any indication. Well good luck with hunting. ☺☻
