Kabzaa is the title of Sandalwood’s most recent major release of a Pan-Indian film. The film was made available in seven languages, including Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, and Odia; nonetheless, it was not successful at the box office.
Kabzaa OTT Release Date
Kabzaa will be premiered on Amazon Prime Video on 14 April 2023.
The practice of distributing films in several different languages across India has made it common practice to refer to these films as “pan-Indian movies.” This has contributed to the widespread acceptance of this practice. Yet, there was a time when the movies of actor Upendra were dubbed into multiple languages such as Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi, and such movies were enjoyed by people of all language backgrounds.
Ravi Basrur, who was responsible for the great background score for the ‘KGF’ movie trilogy, is writing the music for this upcoming Kannada film with a large budget. It is abundantly evident that Ravi Basrur is a specialist in enhancing the scenes with his great background score, and this is the case with both the first and second chapters of “KGF.” There will most likely be another score giving us shivers like this one in Kabzaa.
When and Where to Watch Kabzaa
You can watch this action flick on Amazon Prime Video from 14 April 2023.
Even though there was a lot of great pre-release buzz for the movie directed by Upendra, early ticket sales were not very encouraging. The movie was met with a variety of reactions, ranging from negative to positive reviews, from film critics as well as moviegoers.
Kabzaa is expected to make somewhere about Rs 30 crore in India on its first day of release; nonetheless, this would be regarded as a catastrophic failure given that the film’s production budget was somewhere around Rs 100 crore.
On March 17th, the movie was made available to watch in theaters all throughout India. Despite this, the film was already scheduled for release via OTT services only two weeks after they were announced. This unexpected early release on OTT, which comes before the completion of 30 days in theaters, is news to be surprised about.
What’s the story of Kabzaa
The story of Kabzaa, which takes place in the years leading up to India’s independence, centers on Arkeshwara (Upendra), the son of a freedom warrior who grows up to become a thug and then a crime boss. After that, he goes on to establish a massive empire. The primary questions that are explored in this film are what gives him his formidable power and why the son of a respected war hero would choose a life in organized crime. In addition to this, there is another plot revolving around a royal family, which helps to keep viewers interested in the content.
Cast & Crew of Kabzaa
Shriya Saran will play the female protagonist in the high-budget pan-Indian film, which is directed by real-life star Upendra. Kichha Sudeepa, a beloved Kannada actor, will also have a significant part to play.
Samuthirakani, Nawab Shah, Manoj Bajpayee, Murli Sharma, Kabir Duhan Singh, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Danish Akhtar Saifi, Avinash, and others are also included. This 1960-to-1984-set period action movie was written and directed by R. Chandru. Under the production companies SSE & Invenio Origin and Anand Pandit Motion Productions, the movie is made by R. Chandra Shekar and Alankar Pandhan.
Upendra has done an excellent job of portraying his role. Sudeep makes a memorable appearance in the role of Bhargav Bakshi during a brief cameo appearance in the film. Murali Sharma, Sunil Puranik, and Anoop Revanna have all done their best, while Shriya Saran, in her role as Madhumathi, carries the emotional weight of the performance. Even though there are a lot of bad guys in the movie, Arkeswhara stands out among the rest. The arrival of Shivarajkumar in the climactic scene adds a new turn of events to the story, which is also one of the primary focuses of the film.
Upendra is not just an actor who is praised for his performances, but he is also one of the finest filmmakers to come out of the Kannada cinema industry. He is responsible for many blockbusters that young people of all generations enjoy watching. Even though he almost always films movies about social issues, his writing has a distinct style that manages to connect with the general public. Upendra was most recently seen in the Kannada film “Home Minister,” and he also made a cameo appearance in the Telugu movie “Ghani,” which is a sports drama.
He is in the process of making a new film that is now titled “U,” in which he will star as the main character. The post-production work on the movie Kabzaa is being completed at a very rapid pace as the creators are preparing for an early release in theaters. After the conclusion of the film’s run in theaters, the creators of the film will reveal when it will be made available via online streaming services. We must wait for an official announcement from the cast and crew of the movie.
