There are some films that become blockbusters in theaters but don’t get the same kind of reception when released on streaming platforms. The same films that a section of the audience loved watching in theaters are now being scrutinized and criticized when released on OTT.
This has become a common thing now. It’s not possible for every maker to woo both sets of audiences in the same way. A recent example is Kantara which was hailed as a divine classic, a never-before-experience, once-in-a-lifetime film when the audience watched it in theaters. But on OTT, the film isn’t receiving the same kind of response from the digital audience. Many are calling it overrated and average.
Let’s take a look at the films that were HITS in theaters but couldn’t impress the OTT audience.
