The first Telugu Netflix original:
With this movie, we see things come in from a different perspective, from a women’s perspective, and that is an absolute highlight. As Paava Kadhaigal saw the OTT platform foray in Tamil cinema, here’s the first Telugu Netflix original. To add to that, this sure looks as intriguing as is impressive. The cast of Pitta Kathalu is also one that is interesting and also a skilled set of actors.
South cinema has been evolving and how, and this sure is a step in the right direction, to say the least. With Netflix, we are hoping for more of what we’ve seen to come. For me, the transition started with the amazing movie that C U Soon was. And with another original on its way, I sure have high hopes ahead.
While this may just be the beginning of what’s in store, it is an impressive one. With regional cinema being accepted widely and quality content being given the due importance, there’s a lot that is to wait for and look forward to!
