OTT is thriving in India because Indians have embraced it like fish to water. It has had such a significant impact on the audience for movies that theatrical releases are quickly losing their appeal. With the advent of OTT services, consumers can now view movies whenever they want to without having to wait for them to be broadcast at specific times with commercial breaks.
To keep their audiences interested, OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Voot, Disney+ Hotstar, and Sony Liv make sure to provide new material every week. Additionally, this week’s top five OTT releases include Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Vikrant Rona, Cuttputlli, and more.

It has been praised as a groundbreaking accomplishment in TV history and has garnered raving accolades from reviewers. The only thing left to do is wait and see how the audience reacts to it in the face of intense competition from the on-going House of the Dragon prequel to Game of Thrones.
