South Films Dubbed In Hindi On SonyLIV

The way the world has embraced global content, breaking the barrier of language and embracing subtitles, is the real cinema revolution that was long overdue. In India, the barter between the Hindi film industry and the four from the South has existed for ages but gained significant limelight only in the past decade. The love for content across these two divisions has always been evident. While the influence of the Hindi industry on the South has been clear, the South's influence on Bollywood has been equally strong. The love for South films in the Hindi circle has been immense. Over the years, people have enjoyed many mass-appealing films from the South on satellite TV. However, there is a different subsection that audiences have enjoyed for years now, and it is that of South Indian films dubbed in Hindi.

The love for South Indian films dubbed in Hindi is immense among the Hindi-speaking audience. For years, we have seen these movies on satellite TV. Often, they are released with changed titles, only for us to realise that the movie is completely different from the original language. Many crave the fun of watching these movies. Be it Aparichit, Mass, or others like these, we all vividly remember them. SonyLIV, a leading streaming platform in India, has a library dedicated to South Indian movies dubbed in Hindi. The streamer offers many classics and new films for those who cannot sync their heads with subtitles.

So today, as we continue to explore Sony LIV, we thought of recommending five movies from the streamer that are from the South film industries and are dubbed in Hindi. You can watch them all with your OTTplay Premium subscription. Watch out for the fifth one!

South Films On SonyLIV Dubbed In Hindi

Kaithi (2019)


Director: Lokesh Kanagaraj

Cast: Karthi, Narain, and Arjun Das

Let's begin with a dark film about a man trying to meet his daughter. Lokesh Kanagaraj's cinematic universe (LCU) thrives on guns and emotions in a way that not many films can manage, and Kaithi was the beginning of it all. It is the story of a man who is an ex-convict and has completed his sentence. He is free and now wants to meet his daughter, but his attempts are interrupted by bad men trying to frame him again. A drug raid and combat later, we see the truth. This is also the film that Ajay Devgn’s Bholaa is a remake of.

Love Story (2021)

Director: Sekhar Kammula

Cast: Naga Chaitanya, Sai Pallavi, and Easwari Rao

Stories that talk of love in the face of migration are always special because we see such stories around us all the time. Couples migrating to a distant place in search of a better life and resources is a trajectory that can lead to many things. In Love Story, when Revanth and Mounica come to a big city, they are not ready for what they are about to face. Upon its release, the Naga-Sai starrer was labelled a mature movie with sensibilities that respect the material and trajectory.

Chennai Central (2018)

Director: Vetrimaaran

Cast: Dhanush, Ameer Sultan, and Radha Ravi

Vetrimaaran and Dhanush are an actor-director pair made in heaven, because how else do you define a pair that has given some of the most nuanced and entertaining movies of our time? Chennai Central, aka Vada Chennai, is a movie about an aspiring carrom player who is unaware of what life has in store for him as he finds himself in the middle of a war between two gangsters. The film explores themes of power and deceit and how those caught in the chaos suffer.

Aruvi (2016)

Director: Arun Prabhu Purushottaman

Cast: Aditi Balan, Padmashri Mohammed Ali, and Pradeep Anthony

Aruvi is a film that is about us and for us. Many of us who fail to connect with our surroundings at times will find ourselves in this movie. It is about a girl born into a gentle environment who struggles to make peace with a world that is rapidly moving in an eco-social, consumeristic direction. What she does to break free of the shackles is the essence of the film. Watch Aruvi for a unique perspective on how cinema can touch the real world.

Neel Kamal (1979)

It is a film about a little boy who befriends a visually impaired girl, and they become best friends. When the boy falls terminally ill and is on his deathbed, he pledges his eyes to the girl. Neel Kamal is a story that should be experienced rather than read about.
