R Chandru’s directional Kabzaa was released in theatres across India on March 17th. Nevertheless, just two weeks later, the movie has already been slated for release on OTT. This early release on OTT, before the completion of 30 days in theatres, is surprising news.
Kabzaa on OTT
Kabzaa, featuring Upendra, Kiccha Sudeepa, and Shriya Saran, was released in theaters on March 17, 2023. The film directed by R Chnadru is still available in cinemas. Earlier in March, Amazon Prime Video was confirmed as having gained Kabzaa’s digital streaming rights. According to reports, the release date of the OTT movie has been decided.
Reports now indicate that the probable release date for the movie on Amazon Prime Video is April 14, 2023. Nevertheless, official confirmation is awaited regarding the same.
The movie performance
Kabzaa was marketed largely, but the film became a colossal catastrophe at the box office. The audience was very dissatisfied with the film’s content as it was below par, and it looked like an imitation of the KGF Series.
While the rumors claim that Kabzaa crossed the 100 crore mark within just two days of its Pan-India release, there has been no official confirmation for the same. The movie has mixed reviews, and trade analysts say that it has done reasonably well in Kannada, but has not performed well in other languages. According to reports, the film was unable to collect even 10 crores in revenue from other languages during its first week.
Meanwhile, Shivarajkumar, Dev Gill, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Murali Sharma, Sudha, and Kabir Duhan Singh played pivotal roles in this pan-Indian gangster drama, bankrolled by Sri Siddeshwara Enterprises. KGF fame Ravi Basrur composed soundtracks for this flick.
