Satyaprem Ki Katha, directed by Sameer Vidwans, was released on the big screen on June 29, 2023.
After about 42 days of its theatrical release, Satyaprem Ki Katha has made its way to OTT. Yes, the film, starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani, has dropped on Prime Video, but there's a catch. Yes, the film is not available to all subscribers of the OTT giant but is available for rent. One has to pay Rs. 349 to rent Satyaprem Ki Katha on Prime Video. For the uninitiated, Sameer Vidwans is the film's director.
In the film, Sattu (Kartik Aaryan) is a kind guy who flunked out of law school and now wants to marry Katha (Kiara Advani), the IT girl of Ahmedabad. Katha doesn't want to get married, but fate has other ideas, and she and he do. From here on out, Sattu begins his tryst with his wife in an effort to win her heart. Along the way, he learns about himself and demonstrates his worth as a husband.
The supporting cast of Satyaprem Ki Katha includes Gajraj Rao, Supriya Pathak Kapur, Siddharth Randeria, Anuradha Patel, Rajpal Yadav, and Shikha Talsania, among others.
The romantic drama worked well at the box office, and as per reports, it minted about Rs. 117.65 crore gross worldwide.
Earlier, during an interaction with India Today, Sameer was asked about the reason behind showing Katha's story from Sattu's point of view. To which the filmmaker stated, "Yes, the story is from Sattu’s point of view because, from the first scene, this story revolves around him and his relationship with Katha. We have seen many films on this subject, but our writer Karan Sharma’s idea was to show a love story from the point of view of a feminist husband."
The director added, "The conscious decision was taken because, honestly, I feel feminism can truly attain its objective when men in society change. We wanted to show the story of a man who is a loser in the eyes of society but is here to be a good and supportive husband, and perhaps that’s his goal. That’s why Sattu says that he will always be a ‘supportive hero’ for Katha and her fight to attain self-respect. Hence, we showed it from his POV."
Satyaprem Ki Katha is likely to be available to stream for all subscribers starting next week.
