With big screen feature films getting terrible responses on the digital platform, it is the made-for-OTT projects that are awaited with bated breath by home viewers.
Subhash K Jha lists three most eagerly anticipated projects of the monsoon season.
The Family Man Season 2
Long delayed, but now ready to hit Amazon Prime Video, the second season of The Family Man looks even more exciting than the first.
Showrunners Raj & DK and Director Suparn Verma have upped the suspense quotient as Manoj Bajpayee (Shrikant Tiwari) and Sharib Hashmi (J K Talpade) explore yet another intriguing case.
Bajpayee’s wife, played by Priyamani, continues to be suspicious.
The surprise factor is Telugu superstar Samantha Akkineni, who makes her Hindi debut in a role that is so grey it could easily be negative.
The series will start streaming in June.
Netflix’s most expensive custom-made feature film directed by Ram Madhvani of Neerja and Aarya fame is a desi adaptation of the Korean thriller Terror Live.
But Dhamaka moves far away from the original.
Madhvani, I am told, has created his own space, ironed out the rough edges in the original, and made the plot far more taut.
Kartik plays a ruthless reporter called Arjun Pathak of a news channel named Bharosa 24, negotiating with a terrorist to save the city from attack.
A source close to the project says, “This one is going to be a game-changer for Kartik Aaryan. Ram Madhvani has extracted the best out of the young star. Dhamaka will take Kartik to the next level of stardom.”
Delhi Crime 2
Netflix is very tight-lipped about this project. And with reason.
One of the brilliant actors from Season 1 tells me Season 2 is even more volatile, hard-hitting and disturbing.
The same superlative cast returns — Shefali Shah, Rasika Duggal, Adil Hussain and Rajesh Tailang — plus several new actors.
The release date is awaited.
