2020: A Blessing in Disguise for indie movies on OTT [Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar, Zee5, SonyLiv]

Because of this, most of the independent movies which gets appreciated in film festivals remain unknown to the mainstream public, which mostly watch movies in multiplexes or single screen theaters as well as on T.V.
But, as the pandemic arrives, the distributors are forced by this lockdown situation to look into the direction of films which were were just sitting on the shelves under the pile of dirt and waiting for some distributors to shower their blessing on them. As, it is not difficult to do the pre-production as well as shooting part of the new TV series as well as movies by main stream filmmakers with marketable star cast, OTT platforms are now releasing the movies which used to be always in the waiting list.
Some of such movies are;
Chintu Ka Birthday
You can watch Chintu ka Birthday on Zee5.
