Panja Vaishnav Tej’s Uppena has released in theaters in February and has become a blockbuster. The movie also introduced the heroine Krithi Shetty and director Buchibabu Sana. It is a hard-hitting drama that stars Vijay Sethupathi in a crucial role. The movie has got chartbuster music by Devi Sri Prasad which played a crucial role in the movie’s success.
Uppena was supposed to release for Summer last year but Pandemic delayed the release. OTT Major, Netflix bagged the post-release digital rights of the film. The movie is likely to release on Netflix 60 days after its theatrical release. Netflix even offered the makers a handsome deal to skip its theatrical release but they chose to wait for the theaters to open. It touches on a sensitive topic like caste discrimination in our society. It is impressive how the director handled such a subject without having a negative climax which is usually not liked by the Telugu audience.
