Ottu, the gangster drama starring Kunchacko Boban, Eesha Rebba, Arvind Swami, Jackie Shroff, Aadukalam Naren and Jins Baskar, released in Tamil and Malayalam in the latter half of 2022 and met with mixed responses at the box office and among critics too. While the Malayalam, Tamil versions of Ottu are out on Amazon Prime Video, the Telugu dubbed version is gearing up for its OTT premiere.
Noted Telugu OTT platform aha has acquired the worldwide streaming rights of Ottu in Telugu. The streamer has confirmed that the film will premiere across the globe this Friday i.e. April 14. Directed by TP Fellini, the film was produced by Niranjan Pansari under Sri Balaji Video Private Limited. Ahead of its OTT release, the trailer of Ottu was unveiled by aha earlier this week.

The saga revolves around Kichu, a happy-go-lucky youngster, who wishes to settle abroad with his girlfriend Kalyani. With the help of his father Chachan, Kichu is roped in for a mission where he’s paid to be friends with a rather mysterious lonely man David, gangster who has lost his memory and has confidential information about a consignment.
Kichu gives a nod to the offer, gradually befriends and wins the trust of David, who takes up a job as a popcorn seller in a theatre. There’s a twist in the tale when a gang compels Kichu and pushes him to help David regain his memory. Aneesh Gopal, Siyad Yadu and Amalda Liz too play important roles in the film that was also co-produced by Arya under his home banner The Show People.
With music by Arul Raj Kennady, the film has cinematography by Gautham Sankar and is written by S Sanjeev. While the film released in Malayalam on September 8, it released a couple of weeks later in the Tamil version. Will its Telugu version find takers even after the Tamil/Malayalam original’s availability on another major platform? We’ll know this week.
