Sidharth Malhotra’s Shershaah, Kartik Aaryan Starrer Dhamaka And Others: 4 Most Anticipated Feature Films On OTT In The Second Half Of 2021
In the first half of 2021, we witnessed some interesting films on the OTT space. The content-driven films kept the audience engaged and entertained one and all. Films Pagglait to Ram Prasad Ki Tehrvi impressed us all. We are in the second half of the year 2021 and some interesting films are yet to release. From Sidharth Malhotra’s Shershaah, Kartik Aaryan starrer Dhamaka, Mimi to Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride of India; read about 2021 second-half‘s 4 most anticipated feature films on OTT, and why they are a must-watch!

Shershaah (Amazon Prime):  Bio-pic on Param Vir Chakra winner Vikram Batra promises to be a moving  inspiring  edifying  tale. Said to be Siddharth Malhotra’s own Gunjan Saxena, the actor has given his career’s best as Batra and gone out of his way to explore the soldier’s world penetrating the heart of the theme, to answer that age-old question: what makes a  man give up his life for his  country? The agony of the family on losing its loved one is recorded with a dignity and poignancy that will be long-remembered. Directed by Vishnu Vardhan and produced by Karan  Johar,  Shershah streams from 12 August.


Bhuj: The Pride  Of India (Disney-Hotstar): Another true-life tale of a  soldier’s valour, this one features the redoubtable Ajay Devgn as  IAF  squadron Vijay Karnik, who during the 1971 Indo-Pak war  reconstructed the  IAF airbase  in Bhuj with the help of the local population.  Directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya, this film promises to be another feather in Ajay Devgan’s crowded cap. It streams on 13 August, two days ahead of Independence Day when nationalistic feelings are  skyhigh.



Mimi (Netflix): A crazily  fun-filled take  on surrogate  motherhood with  Pankaj Tripathi forming an unlikely partnership with mother-to-be  Kriti Sanon. This Laxman Utekar-directed rom-com promises to be a wild exhilarating ride. If you have seen this director’s earlier rom-com  Luka  Chupi with Kartik Aryan and  Kriti Sanon, you would know what to expect. Streams on  July 30.



Dhamaka:  Netflix’s most expensive custom-made feature film directed  by Ram Madhvani of Neerja fame, is a desi adaptation  of the Korean thriller Terror Live. However, Dhamaka moves far away from the original. Madhvani, I am told, has created his own space, ironed  out the rough edges in the original, and made the plot far more taut. Kartik plays  a ruthless newshound, the star  reporter called Arjun Pathak of a news channel named ‘Bharosa 24’ negotiating with a terrorist to save the city from  attack. This one is  going to be a game-changer  for Kartik Aaryan. Director Ram Madhvani has extracted the best out of  the young star. Dhamaaka will take Kartik to the next level of stardom. Kartik Aaryan plays a  star-news-anchor who negotiates with a  terrorist  to prevent  the  city from being blown up, is a far more exciting beast than Kim Byung-woo’s Korean 2013 action  thriller Terror Live. Once you see  Kartik Aaryan playing the shrewd news anchor  you  will forget  Ha Jung-woo in the  original. Expected to  stream  in September.
