Latest OTT releases this week.

Last Updated: 04.30 PM, Apr 28, 2023


This week, several highly anticipated films and shows have been released on OTT platforms. With a range of options to choose from, viewers can experience the adrenaline-pumping action of continent-hopping spy thrillers, the heart-wrenching emotions of socially conscious dramas, or the inspiring stories of self-help talk shows headlined by A-list celebrities. Whether you're in the mood for a thrilling adventure, a thought-provoking journey, or an uplifting boost, these recommendations have got you covered. 

Viduthalai Part 1:


We didn't expect to see this movie become available for streaming so soon. But, fortunately, here it has arrived and you shouldn't miss this. It won't be wrong to say this is filmmaker Vetrimaaran's most hard-hitting movie . Mind you, he's the director who made Visaranai. It is because Vetrimaaran has become bolder when it comes to showing the dark side of humanity. The movie is loosely based on the short Thunaivan by B. Jeyamohan. And Vetrimaaran has adapted it for the screen by taking inspiration from real-life events. Set in the late 1980s, the movie sheds light on a man-hunt in a tribal area that leads to countless human rights violations. Starring Soori and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role, Viduthalai is an essential Vetrimaaran to watch to understand the evolving sensibilities of one of the most important filmmakers of our times. 

And Zee5 is showing the extended director's cut. You can also watch Viduthalai Part 1 on OTT Premium

Gurudev Hoysala:

Director Vijay Naagendra's Gurudev Hoysala is the antithesis of Viduthalai Part 1. While Vetrimaaran's movie exposes the brutality of police high-handedness, this movie lionizes the police department. This film celebrates the heroism of the police department, with Dhananjay delivering a standout performance as the titular character, a young cop taking on the sand-mining mafia. The film's tonality is reminiscent of the popular Singam franchise, with over-the-top action sequences and a rousing score. However, what sets Gurudev Hoysala apart is its willingness to tackle the current politics of the state head-on, making it a rare mainstream Kannada film that gets political.

Gurudev Hoysala is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. 


For those in search of a compelling and long-lasting commitment to a web series, this could be a good option. Starring Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, this continent-hopping spy thriller promises to be a pulse-pounding tale of espionage and betrayal set against the backdrop of the modern world. With influences from the Russo brothers, the series boasts a great sense of humour. But Citadel isn't just another spy series. The show is set to expand into a universe of spy versus spy, with spin-off series in several other languages and countries, including India. The Indian version will feature Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in lead roles, adding even more star power to an already impressive cast. 

The first two episodes of Citadel are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. 

The Light We Carry:

The 90 minutes talk show featuring Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey could be a valuable addition to your weekend watchlist. In this show, Michelle sits down with the TV superstar Oprah to discuss her life journey and offer actionable advice for viewers looking to navigate the challenges of the modern world. Throughout the episode, Michelle reflects on the defining moments of her life, from her childhood days to the challenges she faced in her marriage with Barack Obama and her role as the first African American first lady of the United States. She shares her strategies for managing stress and emerging stronger from adversity, while also highlighting the importance of self-care and community support.

The Light We Carry is streaming on Netflix.
