The global pandemic COVID-19 has profoundly affected the world with massive losses in human lives and the economy by declining the income and profit of many industries. We can’t deny the fact of how heavily the film industry has been affected by the time of lockdown. I guess most of us have watched movies in the theater in February ending. So how will they make money at this time when their films were going to release.
Well, they have already made their content, so it’s the time to launch the film in this condition of lockdown. So, they have to choose a new option of OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hotstar+ Disney. They have done partnerships with this platform, so by this, they can launch their movies on these platforms. When it is time to watch videos with friends and families in theater, we spent an average of 1k-2k. But when it comes to OTT platforms, they give us yearly subscription with tons of movie series, etc. Now compare theaters where you are getting to watch only one movie of 2-3 hours maximum to these OTT platforms where you will get tons of content at the same price. The entry of superstar welcomed with the whistle and crowd shouting and hooting will be missed, but then also you are getting so much in very few amounts. So, some of the movies to release on OTT platforms are
