When, where to watch Kichcha Sudeep's 'Vikrant Rona' on OTT?
Kichcha Sudeep's ambitious pan-Indian film Vikrant Rona is all set to land on OTT after completing its theatrical run. It will stream on ZEE5 from September 2 onwards. The fantasy thriller had released in theaters on July 28 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Helmed by Anup Bhandari, it also stars Nirup Bhandari, Neetha Ashok, and Jacqueline Fernandez in a special appearance.
Why does this story matter?
- Vikrant Rona had been in news for a long time, primarily due to its optimum usage of VFX and CGI.
- Upon its release, the movie was immensely appreciated for the visual spectacle but panned for its logical loopholes and threadbare plot.
- Fortunately, it has had a stellar run at the box office, and reportedly breached the Rs. 100cr mark in just five days!
