Here’s a tongue-in-cheek surprise about the whims of the entertainment industry. By now, all box office analysts and business gurus know that Sudipto Sen’s film Kerala’s history is a certifiable blockbuster.
SHOCKING: No OTT buyers for The Kerala Story
Therefore, reading the reports that Kerala’s history It will air very soon, when I touched base with Sudipto, he surprised me with his response. “We still do not have an adequate offer of any OTT platform for Kerala’s history.”
But what about all the reports that the movie is ready for streaming? Sudipto says: “No, no. That is fake news. We are still waiting for a good viable deal from any of the major OTT platforms. But so far, we don’t have any offers worth considering. It seems that the film industry has joined forces to punish us.”
But punishment for what? “Our box office success has irritated many sectors of the film industry. We have the feeling that a part of the entertainment industry has come together to punish us for our success.”
When I contacted one of the major OTT platforms to ask why such a successful movie Kerala’s history doesn’t have a digital output yet, the answer wasn’t surprising. “We don’t want to get into anything politically controversial.”
Interestingly, speaking to Bollywood Hungama, a well-placed industry source says: “The Kerala Story did well at the box office; however, the theme of the film and its theme is something that could invoke a great deal of anger from the audience. Given this fact, no major OTT player is ready to acquire the film.” Reasoning further why The Kerala Story is not finding OTT takers, the source continues, “You have to understand that The Kerala Story is presented as a propaganda film while OTT channels have been focusing on smarter, thought-provoking topics. and entertaining. In such a case, a movie like The Kerala Story does not fit the genres.”
