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

One of the most difficult part of the film making process is to find a distributor after the film is created. Sometimes, it takes  years for a film to get the attention of a film distributor. 
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.

Analysis of TVF Spotlight | Chosen Few - A Short Film

Recently I have watched a short film titled as Chosen Few on TVF aka The Viral Fever's youtube channel. TVF which is most famous for its Comedy Sketches and Web Series. The major part of TVFs' contents revolves around the LIGHT HUMOR genre.
But this time TVF tried to touch the ground of social issue.  This short film is little bit dark for the TVF's particular audience. But TVF took the risk of experimentation and get succeeded in it. 

Now, let me get back towards the short, Chosen Few. It revolves around the topic of human trafficking and teen sex workers. The screenplay is good,  as it holds your attention from the start. Then, you feel like the scenes are transitioning is fast, because it doesn't let your mind to stay with a scene. 
And, then in the climax, when you think that its not a happy ending, you misjudged, because justice has already been served. I don't want to say much about the short. Otherwise, I'll spill the beans of spoliers.
