Here's some exciting news for the fans of the actor Manoj Bajpayee. Bajpayee's 1998 crime film Satya has now premiered on an OTT platform. 

The actor took to social media to announce the news. He retweeted a movie lover's tweet which included a photo of his character reading, 'Mumbai ka King Kaun', while Manoj Bajpayee added in his tweet: "Finally SATYA (1998) is streaming on @SonyLIV."

Check out the tweet here:

The film, produced and directed by Ram Gopal Varma, also stars J. D. Chakravarthy, Urmila Matondkar, Saurabh Shukla, Aditya Shrivastava and Paresh Rawal. The story of the crime film revolves around Satya (Chakravarthy), an immigrant who comes to Mumbai in search of a job, meets and becomes friends with Bhiku Mhatre (Bajpayee), only to soon be drawn into the Mumbai underworld.

The film is one of the first instalment of Ram Gopal Varma's Gangster trilogy, which focuses on organised crime in India. The film opened to positive reviews and was especially appreciated for its realistic portrayal of the underworld. A commercial success, the film won six Filmfare Awards and a National Film Award. The film developed a cult following over the years and is considered one of the best films of Manoj Bajpayee. It spawned three sequels in the film series - Company in 2002, which featured Mohanlal, Manisha Koirala, Vivek Oberoi and Ajay Devgn; D with Randeep Hooda in 2005, and also Satya 2 in 2013. The film Company was loosely based on Dawood Ibrahim's D-Company and was well-received. However, the film D was not as successful as its predecessors and Satya 2 was a box office flop. 

Satya is considered a masterpiece in Indian cinema and one of the best films of the 1990s. Now, watch the film on SonyLIV.
