It’s been more than 6 months since Abishek Ambareesh’s second film, Bad Manners, came to theatres. Directed by Sukka Suri, the film came years after the actor’s debut Amar, which did not give him the start he was hoping for. Given Suri’s body of work, there was a lot of expectation surrounding Bad Manners and that it would give the actor’s fledgling career the right boost.

When the first reports of the Bad Manners came out, though, it became abundantly clear that Suri too had not been able to do the job. While there were comments about Abishek needing to improve on certain aspects of acting, the story and Suri’s style of execution also failed to impress.


Bad Manners revolves around Abishek as a cop called Rudra, who loses his service gun and is then desperate to find a replacement and save his job. The only way to procure such a duplicate would be to head to a secret town called Goda, the haven for such country-made weaponry. But is getting a replacement revolver all that is on Rudra’s agenda?

There were rumours that the film would be on OTT within 2 months of its theatrical release, and that it was headed to Amazon Prime Video, the preferred platform for most film teams. However, as the months went by, there was no update about the film and today it was finally revealed that it is available to stream on Sun NXT.

The film had its television premiere on Udaya TV a few days ago, so it was a given that the streaming rights would also be with the network. Sources say that networks like Sun and Zee procure post-theatrical rights only as a bundle for both satellite and digital.

Last year, Abishek had announced two new films – one with Ayogya and Madhagaja maker Mahesh, and another with Phailwaan director S Krishna. The film, Kaali, with Krishna was said to be a romance set against the Cauvery riots in the 90s with Saptami Gowda paired with the actor. However, there has been no update on this film since then.
