From Toofaan To Bhuj The Pride Of India: The 3 Big Blockbusters To Watch On OTT Platforms
So far the year has seen quite a number of notable medium-to-low-budget straight-to-OTT feature films. These include the Kajol-starrer Tribhanga, the Sania Malhotra helmed Paglaitt  the Abhishek Bachchan starrer The Big Bull. But now the big-budgeted  blockbuster-built  films are  about to get on the platform. While there are some major   made-for-theatre products  now being re-negotiated  for the  digital platform, here are the  three big-ticket films bought by three major OTT platforms at staggering  prices, confirmed for the OTT platform.

Toofaan(Amazon Prime): Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and actor Farhan Akhtar have together given us that other big-screen sports drama blockbuster Bhaag Milkha Bhaag which was about the living legend Milkha Singh. Toofaan is about a fictional boxer and has BIG SCREEN written on every frame. Mehra  and  Akhtar saw no wisdom in waiting for a post-pandemic theatrical release. Yes, this film was designed for the big screen. But then so was Godzilla Versus  Kong. One can’t be rigid about the platform at a time like this specially when the price being paid  for a digital  premiere of Toofaan is a reported  110  crore  rupees. After  having burnt their fingers with a Bollywood biggie Coolie No 1 last year Amazon wanted to make sure their next Bollywood -blockbuster  premiere  doesn’t  prove  a no-show.Streaming from May 21.

Dhamaka(Netflix): Dhamaka is all set to create its own toofan on the digital platform. Sold for a mind boggling  Rs 135 crores to Netflix, this Ram Madhvani thriller adapted from a Korean film, was sold to OTT when the project was conceived. It was shot in ten days on a set representing a newsroom. The focus of  attention is newshound Kartik Aaryan negotiating with a terrorist who threatens to blow up the city. Dhamaka is expected to …errr… create a bigger dhamaka than any other straight-to-digital Bollywood feature film premiered on Netflix so far. Expected to stream in the first week of June.

Bhuj - The  Pride Of India(Disney-Hotstar): A-lister Ajay Devgan’s digital premiere is a war-hero bio-pic. Devgan plays IAF squadron leader Vijay Karnik in this  high-maintenance epic-styled saga with authentic battle scenes recreating the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Besides Devgan the film also stars Sanjay Dutt who made his digital  debut in last year’s badly received Torbaaz. Bhuj - The Pride Of India  directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya was sold to Disney-Hotstar at an estimated price of Rs 90 crores. Expected to stream in July

There are other big screen blockbusters like Sooryvanshi, Bell Bottom and Jhund which may be diverted to a digital platform ,considering the pandemic situation.
