Malayalam film ‘Ottu’ Releasing on October 6; to be available to watch online on Simply South

Ace actor Aravind Swamy’s recent release, Ottu, will soon release on an OTT platform. Besides Aravind Swamy, the film also stars Nna than case Kodu’s popular star, Kunchacko Boban, who has been tasting success with his recent release.

Ottu, made in Malayalam, will also release in Tamil as Rendagam. Both versions of the film will be streaming on Simply South from October 6, 2022. Besides Aravind Swamy and Kunchacko Boban, the film also stars Eesha Rebba and Jinse Baskar in significant roles.

Set against the backdrop of friendship as the theme, Ottu is an action thriller where both the leads play pals. They are good friends and have had a solid bond, however, time tests this as Kichu is offered a one-of-a-kind job, rather odd, to make a good amount of money. Being an idle guy, this is no less than a dream of making easy money, however, to ensure he takes up the same, he must befriend David, who has lost his memory. What follows is a series of events revolving around Kichu. David and their circumstances.

Directed by Fellini TP, Ottu is produced by Arya and Shaji Nadesan. AH Kaashif composed the music for the film, whereas Gautham Shankar and Appu N Bhattathiri have done the cinematography and editing of the film.

Ottu marks the next immediate release for Kunchacko Boban after Nna than case kodu, and the actor has been creating a buzz with his back-to-back hit movies in Malayalam. Both the audience and critics appreciated the lead actors’ combination; however, the Malayalam version film received a mediocre response and the Tamil version received a negative response from the audience.

Critics pointed out issues related to the storyline and choreography of the film calling the experience ‘different’ to other action thrillers, which does not create the anticipation needed for either a prequel or a sequel.

Meanwhile, several other regional films have been planned as OTT releases in the month of October 2022. The audience will be able to enjoy Eesho, Gaalipata 2 and Chor Bazaar on platforms like SonyLIV, Zee5 and Aha Telugu.
