Ditchung the theatres and opting for a direct-to-digital release has become more of an inevitable choice rather than trend. With no sight of theatres opening any time soon, not only small but many big films too have made their way to the various OTT platforms.

Whether it’s bollywood or regional cinema, nothing is untouched by these over-the-top video streaming services. Gulabo Sitabo, Gunjan Saxena, Sadak 2, Shakuntala Devi, Penguin, Ponmagal Vandhal, Sufiyam Sujatayum, Krishna and His Leela, V and the likes have already released on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+Hotstar and more.
