Thandel is one of the most-awaited films in Telugu cinema as it has Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi in lead roles. Chandoo Mondeti of Karthikeya 2 is directing this film, which is nearing completion. Well, we have now learned that Netflix has bagged the OTT rights to the film.

The special aspect is that Netflix has shelled out a whopping amount of Rs 40 crore for these rights. To date, no other film of Naga Chaitanya has fetched such a big amount, and this shows what kind of buzz the movie has created in the film circles.


Thandel producer, cast, and backdrop

GA 2 Pictures, headed by Allu Aravind, is the producer of this film, and he is the one responsible for this massive deal. Thandel is the story of a fisherman who gets stuck in Pakistani territorial waters and is tortured by their enemies. The film also has an underlying love story and Sai Pallavi's role is the biggest highlight of the film.

DSP has composed music for this film, which is being made on a budget of Rs 55 crore, once again, the highest in the career of Naga Chaitanya. This is the second time that he is teaming up with Sai Pallavi after the super success of Love Story.


For Naga Chaitanya, too, Thandel is a crucial film, as his last few projects ended as flops at the box office. In the film, Naga Chaitanya plays a fisherman who speaks a special dialect. He has worked a lot on his body and sports long hair.

One of the sources close to the team has revealed to us that Chay has given his best performance to date with this film. On the other hand, the pre-release business of the film is also happening at a great pace, and all this is happening as Chandoo Mondeti has given a big hit in the form of Karthikeya 2. Thandel is all set to hit the screens on December 20, 2024.
