Advani’s Indoo Ki Jawaani, Penguin will stream on OTT platform
Is Covid 19 the changemaker for movies? The answer seems to be yes. With the pandemic showing no signs of subsiding, watching movies in theatres seems to be a distant dream for now.
Visual feast for fans
Bollywood has kickstarted a new trend by releasing movies directly on the OTT much to the anguish of the multiplex owners across the country. Leading the shift in the way movies are released is Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khuranna’s Gulabo Sitabo which will release on Amazon Prime on June 12, 2020.
Vidya Balan starrer Shakuntala Devi, Kiara Advani’s Indoo Ki Jawaani, Tamil movie Ponmagal Vandhal starring Jyotika, Keerthy Suresh’s Penguin (Tamil and Telugu), Malayalam film Sufiyum Sujatayum starring Aditi Rao Hydari, Ragini Chandran and Siri Prahlad’s Kannada movie, Law and Danish Sait’s next film French Biryani to name a few.
Doom for theatres?
This decision has ignited a debate on whether this will spell doom for movie theaters and multiplexes? Only time will tell if the magic of 70mm screen can be replaced or not, however, till then we all can enjoy these movies!
