The OTTplay Awards and Conclave 2022 kicked off in style on September 10, Saturday in Mumbai. The event, which celebrates the best of OTT content spanning across different languages and genres, was hosted by Maniesh Paul and Gauahar Khan.
The first award of the event came in the form of the award for Best Screenplay (Series), presented by Rishabh Shetty. The award was won by famed directorial duo Pushkar and Gayatri for their work on the thriller web series Suzhal. The web series marked Pushkar and Gayatri’s debut OTT project.
Gayatri expressed her excitement about the awards, which brings together OTT content from across the country and spanning a host of languages. On the win, Gayatri spoke of how Suzhal marked their stepping stone into the OTT world. “For us to get this award first is really great. Super excited about it”, she said.
“And I think it’s a really cool thing that the awards are integrating all the languages and not making it into Hindi, Tamil, Telugu. I think that’s a great idea because language, I think, is becoming immaterial now. So with the OTT space, I guess we should start reaching far and wide. The recognition for that is also great. Thanks!”, added Pushkar.
The series, created by the filmmaking duo, stars R. Parthiban, Kathir, Aishwarya Rajesh and Sriya Reddy in pivotal roles. Bramma and Anucharan have directed the series. Sam C.S. has composed the show’s music.
The review for the series on OTTplay reads “Pushkar and Gayatri have come up with a gripping, haunting tale that keeps you on the edge of the seat throughout the 8-episodes”.
Suzhal: The Vortex is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The Tamil series can also be streamed in Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada as well on the platform.
