In less than a week, two star-hero flicks will make its online debut. The films are Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi and Suriya starrer NGK aka Nanda Gopal Krishna. They will stream online from July 1st on Amazon Prime Video.
Maharshi starring Mahesh Babu is the landmark 25th film of the star. It also marked his first collaboration with director Vamshi Paidipally. The movie opened to mixed reviews yet had a good run theatrically and is soon going to complete its fifty days at the cinemas. The concept of weekend farming proved to be inspirational as well as a great marketing tool that helped the film secure good public perception.
The Suriya starrer, on the other hand, was a disaster in Telugu. It fared reasonably better in Tamil, but much more was expected from it due to the combination of Selva Raghavan with the actor. It was a pairing that movie lovers were waiting for a decade, but the final output didn’t match the expectations. It could prove to be a different case with online viewing, though as the theme has a definite relevance.
For movie lovers irrespective of their box office fate, Maharshi and NGK offer good food for binge-watching viewers. Once again, it is Amazon Prime Video, which is leading on this front as they get the most hotly anticipated movies in its fold.
