As part of the ‘Tudum’ event that Netflix hosted digitally on YouTube other day, almost a dozen teasers of upcoming Indian films and web series were released by the OTT giant. And that has excited Indian fans of the streaming platform a lot as they have witnessed some merit and some terrific casting in a few of the films and series.
We have almost a dozen new projects coming up on Netflix very soon including Nayanthara’s wedding documentary, Rajkumar Rao’s Ek Zindagi, Rana-Venky’s Rana Naidu, Vishal Bharadwaj and Tabu’s Khufiya, saucy series Class, Karishma Tanna and Hansal Mehta’s Scoop, Sanya Malhotra’s crime comedy Kathal, Manoj Bajpayee’s Soup, Randeep Huda’s CAT, Tripri Dimri’s Qala, Yami Gautham’s Chor Nikhal Ke Baaga and Raj-DK’s Guns and Gulaabs. The teasers of all these projects were released other day, and most of them are crime comedies except Nayanthara’s documentary and Qala.
Though the trailers and teasers of these upcoming projects have got the mixed talk, the whole of South India started to worry where is the presence of Southern projects in this whole dozen fresh content.
Looks like neither there is no south production that has impressed Netflix nor any filmmaker from here who could create fresh content for the OTT giant. Though Netflix earlier tried hand with Telugu and Tamil filmmakers, those anthology films have failed big time and hence this snub maybe.
