In India, the Ganesh Chaturthi event is taking place this weekend. Festivals, on the other hand, are always a significant event for new releases. And, as movie theatres around the country progressively open their doors, many films are opting for a release there. Whatever the case may be, there are an equal amount of films debuting on OTT platforms. One Tamil film, by the way, has a near-simultaneous release in theatres and on the OTT platform.
From the Netflix return of Lucifer to Vijay Sethupathi’s political satire Tughlaq Durbar to the early release of Bhoot Police, cinephiles of all languages have reason to rejoice this weekend.
Here’s a rundown of the new movies and web shows available on OTT platforms this week.
