Ponmagal Vandhal OTT vs Theatre war: Jyotika reveals the reason for OTT release!!!
Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal will have a direct OTT release on the 29th of May but the theatre associations are still very much against this decision. So, the war between OTT and theatres continue. Now Jyotika has officially revealed the reason for choosing to have a direct OTT release for Ponmagal Vandhal. She on behalf of 2D Entertainment has clarified their stand on the issue during an interaction with the media. She reveals why OTT and what’s so special about Ponmagal Vandhal:
“Out of all the scripts that I have done so far, this is the closest to my heart, I got a different kind of power after wearing that Lawyer’s court. We can’t cheat the audience with a few actions or stunt scenes. This script is filled with nothing but words, so we will have to be very sure about what we talk, you will see the power of words while watching the film. Frankly, I have not gone inside a court before, but I have seen a lot of courtroom dramas in the past. And Fredrick has done a lot of homework, I think he has worked on the script for over 1 year.
Regarding the decision to release Ponmagal Vandhal directly on OTT, Jyothika said, “it is a decision that we made only because of Corona lockdown and we also felt that women-centric films and small films are being respected on OTT, so we felt it is a fair platform to release on film on Amazon during this crisis. I personally feel that OTT will take cinema to the next level. You cannot compare a small film and female centric film to a male superstar film, our films are not recognized much by the theatre audience, the footfall is comparatively very less, in that way, these OTT platform gives an edge to small and female centric films. And through Amazon, this film will be reaching 200 countries across the world, in that way, it is a very very big reach for us. OTT has a wide reach and that will definitely be a big boost to us”
