The curfew timings are relaxing, people are back to going to work, theatres are open at limited capacity but OTT platforms are still running quite strong. The fear of Covid-19 still makes many people stay at their homes, where they turn to OTT bingeing. No streaming platform wants to be left behind. Hence, a majority of them have started announcing their lineups for the coming few months or even the remainder of 2021. Disney+ Hotstar recently announced its lineup, consisting of 18 titles, till September 2021. Amazon Prime Video is not going to be left behind and is planning to rope in a lot of regional cinema. As part of this, four Tamil films will be released by Amazon Prime Video, one every month from September onwards. All the films will be produced by Tamil actor couple Suriya and Jyothika.
The most exciting of these releases is Jai Bhim which stars Suriya himself in the lead. Here are 4 Tamil films that are releasing soon on Amazon Prime Video:
#1 Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum
