There is no denying that anyone and everyone who has seen Rakshit Shetty’s last release, 777 Charlie liked something about it. While some loved the adorable canine playing Charlie, the bond between the dog and Rakshit’s character Dharma tugged at the heart strings of some, and for a third, it was the emotional journey of both Charlie and Dharma, who found companionship in each other that warmed the cockles of their heart. Even the most hardened critic had something nice to say about the film.
It is no wonder then that 50 days since its theatrical release, the Kiranraj K directorial continues to be one of the most-highly rated films across recommendation platforms like imdb, Rotten Tomatoes, etc. The film has just dropped on Voot Select in Kannada only, with English subtitles, which audiences are lapping up. Audiences in other parts of the country are a tad disappointed, though, because Amazon Prime Video, which has picked up the digital rights of the film in the other languages, has given no indication as to when it would make the film available to stream. There is a buzz that the streamer will put up 777 Charlie latest by the first week of August, but this has not been officially confirmed.
Produced by Rakshit Shetty’s Paramvah Studio, 777 Charlie follows the transformational journey of Dharma and Charlie when they come into each other’s life. One of the film’s highlights was Nobin Paul’s soul-stirring background score and songs. The film also had Sangeetha Sringeri, Raj B Shetty, Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Bobby Simha and Danish Sait on its cast. It was released in theatres in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam and is reported to have amassed over Rs 150 crore from its theatrical, satellite and digital business.
Rakshit had said that even though his film was released in five languages, he had got remake offers too, which he wasn’t entirely convinced about. The actor-filmmaker said that the dedication and passion that Kiranraj had in making the film is tough to replicate and that only he could make a film like 777 Charlie.
