Rakshit Shetty in Sapta Sagaradaache Ello - Side B
It would be safe to say that Sapta Sagaradaache Ello - Side B OTT was one of the highly-awaited movies in the OTT space. Side A was a big critical hit and it also created quite an anticipation for the second part, Side B. However, when the movie was released in cinemas last November, it didn't draw the audiences in larger numbers as expected.
However, Side B seems to have finally found its audience through the streaming platform. The film arrived on Amazon Prime Video on January 26, and since then, it has been garnering rave reviews.
Earlier, writer-director Hemanth M. Rao also expressed his joy over the response the movie was getting on the OTT platform. The audience seems to have been drawn into the melancholic mood of the movie and praised the compelling performances of the leading star cast.
"Don't have words to describe this film... Speechless. THIS IS A MASTERPIECE Pure cinema," said a viewer on social media.
"So Intense & Bittersweet #SSEsideB @hemanthrao11 broke my heart ThankYou for this craft#SSE Wholesome acting..! @rakshitshetty @rukminitweets @Chaithra_Achar_ Cinematography at it's best @AdvaithaAmbara," tweeted the another fan.
Sapta Sagaradaache Ello - Side B is also receiving high praise for its visual style. Many viewers seem to have been captivated by the beautifully shot frames that evoke a sense of comfort while conveying a tragic story. Cinematographers Advaitha Gurumurthy and Hemanth appear to have been very inventive in using a myriad of colour palettes and other visual elements to depict the never-ending pain of the protagonist.
Currently streaming exclusively in India, the filmmakers have confirmed ongoing discussions with their streaming partner to make the film available for fans of this saga residing in foreign countries.
While Side B is accessible in all four South Indian languages, the Hindi-dubbed version will also be released soon.
Besides Rakshit Shetty, the movie also stars Rukmini Vasanth and Chaithra J. Achar in the lead roles.
