Movies Releasing OTT Platform

Coronavirus outbreak has brought many changes in daily lives. Recently many producers and filmmakers broke the news that several movies like Gulabo Sitabo, Shakuntala Devi will be released on OTT Platforms directly. The theatres and cinema halls are going to be closed until the lockdown situation ends. Producers and filmmakers are done waiting and finally decided to release their movies to video streaming platforms instead of queuing up for theatrical release when theatres reopen.

Movies like Sooryavanshi and 83 won’t make it onto digital platforms. Producers of these movies said “Sooryavanshi and ’83 are anyway out of reach for OTTs (because digital sales will not help recoup their ?100 crore plus budgets) and they will push people to theatres whenever they reopen. However, there is an upper-mid range of films, which would anyway have been second to the biggies, that these platforms are picking up now”.

However, after hearing these statements, India’s Largest multiplex chain INOX , released a statement on production house’s announcement to release their movies on an OTT platform by skippin the theatrical trial.

“We were hoping that the producers would accede to our request to hold back their film’s release till cinemas reopened.” INOX Said.
