Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush starring film Atrangi Re and Sushmita Sen’s web series Aarya 2 have become the top OTT originals of the week. The recently released Indian projects have managed to surpass the much-loved Spanish heist drama show, Money Heist season 5 part 2. Atrangi Re is one of the most recent OTT releases and has received mixed responses from viewers.
Ormax Media has released its list of top OTT originals of the week of December 31-January 6. While the two Indian projects are among the top two OTT originals of the week, the other three International shows - Money Heist, The Witcher Season 2 and The Wheel Of Time - have also managed to stay on the list.
Here’s the post:
Raveena Tandon’s Aranyak, Kay Kay Menon’s Special Ops 1.5, Vivek Oberoi’s Inside Edge Season 3 and R. Madhavan-Surveen Chawla’s Decoupled have also become a part of the top 10 OTT originals of the week. MCU’s web series Hawkeye, which is a standalone series on the MCU superhero, has become the seventh OTT original of the week.
Theatres have shut down in many areas due to the rising cases of Omicron, which is a variant of COVID-19. Ever since the news was out, no big project has been released on OTT either. Thus, the viewers have continued showering their love on the direct-to-OTT film Atrangi Re.
Aarya 2 and Aranyak also became special OTT projects. While Aarya had marked Sushmita’s comeback to acting, Aranyak did the same for Raveena.
Interestingly, This Is Us, which released its first episode from the final season i.e. season six on January 7, did not make it to the list. Previously, Ormax Media would include the big projects to their list but it appears that This Is Us did not have as much of a buzz as expected from the final season. Nonetheless, the upcoming list is likely to reveal where the show ranks in terms of views.
