Bollywood has already announced over a dozen movies for direct OTT release including the films featuring star heroes like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan. Already, some of them got released and receiving positive responses from the viewers.
Diving into the details, CEO of Reliance Entertainments shared that they don’t want to push the release dates of 83 and Sooryavanshi further. Sooryavanshi is scheduled for Diwali and 83 for Christmas. Makers also mentioned that they are confident about the improvement of theatrical exibition business and wait for theatrical release.
Sooryavanshi is a cop-drama directed by Rohith Shetty and this is his third movie coming in cop backdrop after Singham and Shimbha. The earlier cop films were remade from the South but this time Rohith goes with own script. Katrina Kaif is paired opposite to Akshay and SS Thaman composed a single from this album.
83 is a sports drama featuring Ranveer Singh as the main lead. 83 is based on the life story of Indian maiden world cup captain Kapil Dev which is being directed by Bajrangi Bhaijaan fame Kabir Khan and features Deepika as a wife to Kapil Dev. Pritam and Julius Packiam are composing tunes for this movie.
However, as of now, there is no update on reopening the theatres and may take a long time. Should wait and see how these movies perform if it is released theatrically.
