Oct 21 OTT release planned for Nandamuri Kalyan Ram's 'Bimbisara'
Chennai, Oct 14: Director Mallidi Vassishta's critically acclaimed Telugu superhit film, 'Bimbisara', featuring Nandamuri Kalyan Ram in the lead, will have its world digital premiere on OTT on October 21 this year.
The film is to release on the OTT platform, ZEE5. Produced by N.T.R Arts, the critically acclaimed Telugu film features Catherine Tresa, Samyuktha Menon and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles along with Nandamuri Kalyan Ram and Warina Hussain, Vennela Kishore, Srinivas Reddy, Brahmaji, Sai Kiran, Ayyappa P. Sharma and others in secondary roles.
The film will be available on ZEE5 from October 21, 2022 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.
The film begins in the year 500 B.C when Bimbisara (Kalyan Ram) is the emperor of the Trigartala empire.
A vile egomaniac, his violent antics have no limits. However, his ego trip ends when his banished twin brother Devadatta ambushes him and teleports him - through a magical mirror - to the present-day world. What happens when this authoritarian king is reincarnated as a suit wearing rich man in a modern-day world?
Bimbisara's arrival favours Subramanya Sastri (Vivan Bhatena) and godman Kethu (Ayyappa P. Sharma), who have their eyes set on an Ayurveda book titled Dhanwanthari which is safely locked in Bimbisara's treasure vault, which only he can open.
With opulence and ferocity in virtually every frame of the film, 'Bimbisara' is enhanced by uncompromising action, its striking camera work, and impressive visual effects.
The film is sure to impress the socio-fantasy lovers of cinema who like scale, historical characters and VFX.
