Saindhav OTT release date - Saindhav is Venkatesh's latest release, directed by Sailesh Kolanu. Amazon Prime has grabbed the OTT rights to the film
Venkatesh in Saindhav
Saindhav is one film on which Venkatesh pinned a lot of hopes to make a comeback in the action genre. But sadly, the action drama ended as a big flop at the box office. All those involved with the film have suffered losses. We at OTTplay have already reported that Amazon Prime has bagged the OTT rights to the film.
Now, we have come to know from our sources that the digital release has been advanced. Going into details, Saindhav, which was released on January 13, 2024, was supposed to be out on OTT in the third week of February 2024. But as the film has flopped, the streaming giant has offered extra bucks to advance the digital release.
As per the latest update, Saindhav will be out on February 3, 2024, which means it will be available for streaming within three weeks of its release. Sailesh Kolanu directed this film, which showcased Venkatesh in an action-packed avatar after a long time.
Saindhav is about a gun cartel and how Venkatesh gets involved with them to save his daughter, who has a rare disease. Saindhav is also special as it marked the Telugu debut of award-winning actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He played the main villain in this film and was superb in the film and his performance has been hugely appreciated.
Saindhav had a great story on paper but sadly, Sailesh's narration was not up to par. He chose an unconventional climax and this did not go well with the audience. The action drama made only Rs 15 crore and needed a Rs 17 crore share to be in the safe zone, but that did not happen and the film was a flop.
Saindhav was released as the Sankranthi 2024 special, along with Guntur Kaaram, HanuMan, and Naa Saami Ranga. All three films performed well but Saindhav failed to utilise the festive season. In many areas, theatres that were allotted to Saindhav have now been given to HanuMan, which has become a surprise hit at the box office.
The film directed by Prasanth Varma has already clocked the Rs 250 crore mark and is going great guns even on weekdays. In the US, HanuMan has clocked 5 million but sadly, there were no takers for Venkatesh's Saindhav, though the film was promoted quite well.
Shraddha Srinath and Ruhani Sharma played the female leads in this film. Santhosh Narayanan composed the music and his score has come in for a lot of trolls, as none of the songs or BGM clicked in the film and disappointed the fans big time. Venkatesh has not announced his next and director Sailesh will helm HIT 3, which features Nani as the main lead.
