Here are the two latest OTT releases that deserve your time and attention this weekend:
The trailer for the upcoming film Bawaal sparked intense debate among viewers, leaving them perplexed yet intrigued by its unconventional approach. While the themes and emotions depicted in the movie appeared relatable, the staging and unexpected references, such as the World War 2 connection and references to Hitler, added an element of surprise. The question remains: What is this movie truly about? Based on the trailer, Bawaal follows the journey of Ajju, portrayed by the talented Varun Dhawan, a young man seemingly struggling to find substantial success in life. However, Ajju possesses a remarkable talent for personal propaganda, crafting an illusion of a more accomplished and eventful life than reality. "Create such an ambiance that people remember the ambiance and not the result," Ajju proclaims. It sounds like something that Joseph Goebbels, the infamous chief propagandist for the Nazi Party, would approve of. Ajju unexpectedly falls in love with Nisha, played by Janhvi Kapoor. As the couple embarks on a honeymoon trip across Europe, Ajju's web of lies begins to unravel, plunging his life into utter chaos. Bawal is helmed by Nitesh Tiwari, who has also co-written it with Nikhil Mehrotra, Piyush Gupta, Shreyas Jain, and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.
