With 10 weeks left for the year to wrap up, newer film releases are being announced on the OTT platform.

This, despite the fact that theatres have opened up.

Joginder Tuteja looks at the 10 releases that will keep the entertainment going till the end of 2020.


Release date: October 29
Where to watch: ZEE5

Taish will see a unique release strategy by arriving as a series as well as a film.

Wazir Director Bejoy Nambiar casts real life couple Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda in an unconventional story, co-starring Jim Sarbh, Harshvardhan Rane and Sanjeeda Sheikh.


Release date: October 30
Where to watch: MXPlayer

Those who want some sizzle and seduction, Sunny Leone is ready to do the trick.

She would be seen in Bullets, and will be joined by Karishma Tanna.

This action crime thriller boasts of the lethal combination of girls with guns.

The film, which has been cut into a six-part series, will be directed by Devang Dholakia.


Laxmmi Bomb
Release date: November 9
Where to watch: Disney + Hotstar

Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb is among the big releases of the year.

For an actor who had delivered a record hat-trick of double centuries last year (Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, Good Newwz), one expects a record breaking outing on OTT too.

This horror comedy is directed by Raghava Lawrence and co-stars Kiara Advani.


Release date: November 12
Where to watch: Netflix

A game of ludo will be played in a thrilling set up, what with Anurag Basu returning to his roots and putting together a film that reminds us of multiple stories converging together, as seen in his well-reviewed film, Life... In A Metro.

Abhishek Bachchan leads the show along with Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur and the Dangal girls Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.


Release date: November 13
Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

A comedy with sports as the backdrop and romance as a motivation, this one is yet another Rajkummar Rao starrer which will release on OTT.

It is refreshing to see Director Hansal Mehta explore a different genre after delivering the well made Web series, Scam 1992.


Release date: December 11
Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

A horror thriller, Durgavati stars Bhumi Pednekar.

Bhumi is fast gaining the reputation of being among the most versatile actresses in the industry.

For producer Vikram Malhotra, Durgavati would be the second digital release of the year after Vidya Balan's Shakuntala Devi.

The film is directed by G Ashok, and is a remake of his own 2018 Telugu-Tamil film, Bhaagamathie.


Coolie No. 1
Release date: December 25
Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

It seemed that the team of Coolie No 1 would stick to its original stand of releasing in theatres.

But now, the father-son jodi of David Dhawan and Varun Dhawan, along with Sara Ali Khan, will bring on the laughs in your living room this Christmas.


The Big Bull
Release date: November 2020
Where to watch: Disney + Hotstar

After Scam 1992, which also tells the tale of Harshad Mehta (who was known as The Big Bull), comparisons are going to be obvious.

Still, given Director Kookie Gulati's penchant for style, this should make for an entertaining watch.


Bhuj - The Pride of India
Release date: December 2020
Where to watch: Disney + Hotstar

Ajay Devgn started 2020 with a big hit in with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior , which did a business of Rs 280 crore.

He will probably close it in a similar way as well, albeit on the OTT medium, with Bhuj - The Pride of India slated to arrive in December.

One waits to see whether there would be a BIG Christmas clash with the film arriving on December 25 alongside Coolie No 1


Release date: December 2020
Where to watch: Netflix

Sanjay Dutt had a forgetful OTT debut with his Sadak 2 being written off on the day of release.

But he hopes to make his presence count with Torbaaz.

A thriller, this Girish Malik directorial will be the last big release for Netflix in 2020.
