Among the few Kannada films that have received positive feedback from critics and audiences alike is the sci-fi flick Blink. Led by Dia fame Dheekshith Shetty, the film, directed by debutant Srinidhi Bengaluru, had a slow start and struggled to get decent screens and show timings initially, which got better after good word-of-mouth publicity emerged. But with a steady stream of films coming out week-on-week, both big and small, sustaining screens was going to be a tough task and Blink recently folded its theatrical run after a fairly successful 25-day stint.


The makers, we hear, have been in discussion with multiple OTT platforms and TV channels, and the streaming rights have been settled. The tussle for TV partner is, apparently still ongoing between Colors Kannada and Asianet Suvarna. The OTT partner for Blink is Amazon Prime Video, which has picked the film on a pay-per-view basis. Blink dropped on the platform on May 13, 2024.

Besides Dheekshith, the film also stars Vajradheer Jain, Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Suresh Anagalli, Chaithra J Achar, Mandara Battalahalli in pivotal roles. Blink is centred on Dheekshith’s character Apurva, an only child brought up by his mother, who lives in Bengaluru, while trying to complete his education and make do by doing sundry jobs. Apurva’s father abandoned the family years ago and is presumed dead. He has a supportive girlfriend, and all is well, until a mysterious old man approaches Apurva and tells him that his father may be alive after all.

In finding answers to his queries, Apurva realizes that some questions are better left unanswered as he confronts some bitter and uncomfortable truths. Srinidhi Bengaluru’s script not only incorporates time travel into the narrative, but also explores the protagonist’s Oedipus complex.
