'Dobaaraa': When, where to watch Taapsee Pannu starrer on OTT?
Taapsee Pannu starrer Dobaaraa was released in theaters on August 19 and praised for its expeditious screenplay, tight script, and cast performances. Adapted from the 2018 Spanish film Mirage, the film is directed by Pannu's frequent collaborator and ace filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Now, days after completing its theatrical run, the time-travel thriller will be available for streaming on Netflix from October 15 onward!
Why does this story matter?
- Dobaaraa marked Pannu's third collaboration with Kashyap after Manmarziyaan (2018) and Saand Ki Aankh (2019).
- Interestingly, the film is yet another addition to Pannu's slate of unconventional, offbeat movies such as Game Over and Looop Lapeta.
- Even before its theatrical release, the film garnered a lot of acclaim outside India and was screened at Fantasia Film Festival in Canada and London Indian Film Festival.
