Anushka Shetty is known for female-oriented movies like Arundhati, Panchakshari, Rudramadevi and Bhagamathi. Most of them were successful and have been big assets in Anushka’s career. She is coming with yet another women-centric thriller Nishabdham under the direction of Vastaadu Naa Raju director Hemant Madhukar and produced by Kona Venkat and TG Vishwa Prasad. This Gopi Sundar musical also features Madhavan and Anjali in key roles.
Nishabdham was planned for Republic day release and later pushed for a summer release but its release is further delayed due to the lockdown. Earlier Kona Venkat was offered by Amazon Prime Video to release Nishabdham directly on OTT but he was not pleased with their offer as he wanted the theatrical release but now the scenario became very tough and no one could predict when the theatres will be re-opened and the audience who are used to OTT would rush to the theatres as before.
Kona Venkat keeping all these in view left with a dilemma about the release of Nishabddam. So, to take the audience opinion he conducted a Twitter poll writing that they have to wait at least till January or February for the theatres and asked where they want to watch Nishabdham while about 60% audience voted for OTT, 25% for theatres and the remaining were neutral.
Films like Krishna And His Leela, Uma Maheshwara Ugra Rupasya skipped their theatrical release and got a good response from the audience who watched it on OTT platforms. Some other movies like Chitram Cheppindi and Orey Bujjigaa are also getting ready for the OTT release. However, it is clear that Kona Venkat is thinking to release Nishabdham digitally and even the audience also wanted the same. So, we can expect an update soon about the OTT release of Nishabdham.
