The last time a Kannada film went to OTT and was available for rent only there was a lot of hullabaloo around it. The film was KGF: Chapter 2, one of the most-widely anticipated films on OTT, after its monstrous box office reception. The platform was Amazon Prime Video, which received a lot of brickbats for keeping the film for rental only for well over two weeks.

And now, yet another much-awaited film is coming to the same streamer and yes, it is under its early access movie on rental scheme. Rakshit Shetty’s much-loved 777 Charlie, which released in theatres on June 10 and then came to Voot Select almost two months later, albeit in the Kannada version only, has been sold to Amazon Prime Video for the Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam versions. Ever since the film came on Voot Select, fans across the country have been relentlessly asking Rakshit, who has also produced the film, and director Kiranraj K about its availability in other languages.

Amazon Prime Video today confirmed that it has bought the film and is making it available starting September 30. “a teary tale of the most precious bond to ever exist 🐕🫶 777 Charlie available for rent from Sept 30 on the #PrimeVideoStore,” read the official post. If KGF: Chapter 2 was any indication, Prime is likely to keep the 777 Charlie rental status at least for a couple of weeks.

In the past, Amazon Prime subscribers have been less than pleased for having to shell out extra to watch popular films, with many threatening to unsubscribe from the service, since the Video Store is accessible to non-subscribers also.

777 Charlie, produced by Paramvah Studios, also starred Sangeetha Sringeri, Raj B Shetty, Bobby Simha, Gopalkrishna Deshpande, among others. The film, which has soulful music by Nobin Paul, follows the story of a loner Dharma (Rakshit), whose life is turned around after he begins fostering a boisterous dog called Charlie. What then unfolds is a transformational journey for both Dharma and Charlie.
