The addition of films that connect with audiences on an emotional level has always been a priority for OTT services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ Hotstar, and Zee 5. Besides incorporating the best entertainment, they also produce several films that convey a certain message to the audience.
IB Times India presents you with the top five OTT releases this week:
The film is directed by Saravanan and produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment. The film stars Jyothika, M. Sasikumar, Samuthirakani, Soori, Kalaiyarasan, Nivedhithaa Sathish, and Sija Rose.
The story centres on two siblings and their connection. They adhere to a distinct philosophy, and as a result, they drift more and further apart. It's going to be a lovely family narrative, and you may watch it with your family to better understand family relations.
The suspense is whether Mathangi (the protagonist) would succeed in reuniting her family in this intense drama. This film demonstrates the power of a woman's silence.
Suriya revealed earlier this year that four films from his production house will forego theatres in favour of an Amazon Prime Video debut. Udanpirappe is slated for a worldwide release on October 14 in almost 240 countries.
Convergence: Courage in a Crisis (2021)
Directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, this documentary stars Wenhua Lin, Sara Khaki and Mohammad Rezi Eyni in lead roles.
Convergence: Courage In a Crisis is the result of a partnership covering eight nations and nine distinct narratives. Beginning with the pandemic's outbreak, the documentary follows ordinary citizens around the world as they respond in unexpected ways to the challenges of this upheaval — from a Syrian refugee forced to fight the UK government to include healthcare cleaners and porters in grief and loss pay to a doctor dedicated to serving Miami's homeless community.
In the touching documentary, ten Co-directors offer their perspectives on how the Covid-19 epidemic affected their various parts of the world and their own lives. It talks about the change a crisis can cause. This documentary will be released on October 12 on Netflix.
Tapsee Pannu's latest film is another powerful and unique effort.
For being "not traditionally feminine", Rashmi Rocket's Rashmi, a national-level player, is called "Mardan". Her triumphs, medals, and renown vanish in an instant when she is accused of competing in women's games. Then came a series of antiquated gender tests to determine her gender. After that, a ban.
From then, proving her femininity would be a twisted fight unlike anything seen in Bollywood. But Rashmi has her husband at her side. The film is directed by Akarsh Khurana and casts Priyanshu Painyuli and Abhishek Banerjee.
