Pawan Kaylan’s Vakeel Saab OTT release date revealed

Tollywood adores Pawan Kalyan and rightly so - his long list of performances has fascinated audiences for years. This superstar’s latest film Vakeel Saab has been highly anticipated on OTT platforms, following a theatrical release on April 9. But as of today, the wait is over! Vakeel Saab is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 30.

Though the filmmakers had stated that the film will be released only 50 days after its theatrical release, the second wave of COVID-19 forced theatres shut. This has resulted in a change in the schedule which has pushed the OTT release ahead for the film.

Vakeel Saab is the Telugu remake of Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s 2016 hit Bollywood film Pink, which tells the story of three girls who find themselves in a legal tiff with men who have molested them. Pawan Kalyan steps into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan’s role and is returning to delight his fans in a power-packed performance after a hiatus of three years.

The film, directed by Venu Sriram, was released to raving reviews on April 9. The box office collections for the film were massive within the first week but this number dropped in the second week owing to a rise in COVID-19 cases. The government directives in Telangana that curbed public movement and the Andhra Pradesh government rules of theatres operating at only 50 per cent capacity seem to have been catalysts in the decision of the filmmakers, who have now turned to Amazon Prime Video for a digital release.

Vakeel Saab reportedly collected over Rs 100 crore in its ticket sales worldwide and was expected to rake in another Rs 20 crore to its total collection before diverting to OTT platforms. Anticipating the film’s release, fans made #VakeelSaab trend on Twitter.

This legal drama film, starring Ananya Nagalla, Nivetha Thomas and Anjali alongside Pawan Kalyan will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video from April 30.
