‘Ponmagal Vandhal’ to ‘Penguin’: Seven films confirmed for straight-to-OTT release
The movies will premiere on the streaming platform over the next three months and will be available in 200 countries and territories worldwide.
MUMBAI: Amid the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown as multiplexes remain shut, the streaming platform Amazon Prime Video is going all out in a bid to revolutionize the way we might watch films in the future. After confirming the Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer “Gulabo Sitabo” for a digital release recently, the OTT platform now announces six more highly-anticipated Indian films, including “Shakuntala Devi” starring Vidya Balan, for digital premieres over the next months.
All these films will directly go to Amazon Prime bypassing traditional theatrical release.
Across five Indian languages, apart from the above-mentioned Hindi releases, the direct-to-home menu features the Tamil legal drama “Ponmagal Vandhal” starring Jyotika, the Keerthy Suresh starrer “Penguin” (Tamil and Telugu), “Sufiyum Sujatayum” (Malayalam) starring Aditi Rao Hydari, “Law” (Kannada) starring Ragini Chandran and Siri Prahlad, and Danish Sait’s next film “French Biryani” (Kannada).
