A romantic drama, and two comedies, one with a hint of horror, form this week's list of titles that have been dubbed in Kannada as well
December 2023 gave Kannada audiences several original flicks on OTT, including Tagaru Palya, Toby, Sugar Factory and Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye, apart from dubbed content like Jigarthanda DoubleX, Chithha, Japan, and many others. In fact, in the last week, there were two titles, Nayanthara’s Annapoorani and Parking, which released with Kannada audio. In the first week of the new year, the expectation was that Rakshit Shetty’s Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B would be on OTT, but there’s no word on it yet. Not to fret! There are a few promising titles from other languages that will be available with Kannada audio this week.
The Telugu original film with Nani and Mrunal Thakur in the lead had the former playing a celebrity photographer and single father, Viraj, to a six year old daughter. As attentive and hands on he can be, Viraj, though, cannot fill the void left by his wife, with the little one curious to know more. Why Viraj is left to take care of his daughter by himself forms the crux of the narrative.
