King of Kotha OTT Release Date
King of Kotha is all set to be premiered on 29 September 2023 on Hotstar.
The announcement of the movie’s release schedule produced an aura of expectation and excitement among the fans, who carefully counted down the days until they witnessed the enchantment take place on the big screen.
Before the film’s premiere in theaters, the Malayalam action movie King of Kotha had already found a digital streaming platform and a satellite partner to work with. This was an important step in securing its digital rights.
The well-known over-the-top (OTT) platform Disney Plus Hotstar has recently paid a staggering sum to obtain the rights to stream multiple Indian languages, including Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Asianet has acquired the satellite rights previously held by Maaveeran.
Although the date of Dulquer Salmaan’s King of Kotha’s over-the-top (OTT) release has not been formally announced just yet, the movie has a five-week window for its digital release. Therefore, beginning on September 29, 2023, Disney+ Hotstar may provide its viewers with the ability to watch the movie on its streaming service.
When and Where to Watch King of Kotha
You can watch this action drama on Hotstar from 29 September 2023.
The main criminal organization in this city is headed up by Kannan Bhai (played by Shabeer Kallarakkal), and his crew of thugs are featured prominently in the storyline of this movie. Inspector Shahul Hassan devised a cunning plan to retrieve the “King” in order to flout this mandate and exact punishment. This plan resulted in a dramatic turn in the course of events.
Earlier speculations stated that the pan-Indian film starring Dulquer would make its world premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar on the 22nd of September. On the other hand, it did not end up being released on the platform on the 22nd. The most recent announcement that was released by Disney Plus Hotstar stated that “King of Kotha” will begin streaming on September 29.
The mafia drama “King of Kotha” contains aspects of both emotion and suspense throughout its narrative. The plot of the movie centers on Kannan Bhai and his powerful gang, who wield considerable influence in a community that is plagued by crime.
However, Inspector Shahul cunningly concocts a scheme to put the ‘King’ back into activity in order to challenge their supremacy and seek vengeance. Fans are looking forward to the imminent release of “King of Kotha” on OTT with bated breath.
What’s the story of King of Kotha
The story of King of Kotha starts with a police officer being threatened by a local criminal. In response, the officer decides to bring back a previous local bigwig to face combat against the villain.
Raju Madrasi, a former member of the criminal underworld in the town of Kotha, is played by Dulquer, who has returned to the village to reclaim his crown. However, in order to recover his status in the town, he would first have to contend with Kannan (Shabeer Kallarakkal), the current mobster who is in control of Kotha.
