There is no dearth of new movies since filmmakers have taken the digital route to tell stories.
Last week, Shoojit Sircar directorial Gulabo Sitabo, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Farrukh Jaffer, Brijendra Kala and Vijay Raaz among more, released on Amazon Prime Video. The film garnered a positive response from cinephiles.
The next big film to have a digital release is Keerthy Suresh starrer Penguin. Touted to be a mystery thriller, it revolves around a mother’s struggle as she searches for her child. Helmed by debutant director Eashvar Karthic, the film has been co-produced by Karthik Subbaraj. It is the second high-profile Tamil film to take the OTT route after Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal.
The other big films which will be released on streaming platforms include Janhvi Kapoor starrer Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Kannada film Law and Vidya Balan’s Shakuntala Devi.
