Zee5 bags direct-to-digital release rights for Telugu film 47 Days.
Rhea Srivastava -
Streaming service Zee5 has managed to acquire another big-ticket film for a direct release amidst lockdown, even as movie theatres remain shut indefinitely - Pradeep Maddali’s gripping Telugu film, ‘47 Days.’
The film, which has actor Satya Dev in the lead role, centres around a senior police officer who is on the lookout for a mystery girl. Over the course of the film, the ACP gets so obsessed with finding her that it begins a wild goose-chase which involves him going around the whole city. Satya also provides a voice-over to the trailer. There is also the suggestion that it may be the girl herself who is misleading him, but that’s a mystery that we’ll only solve once the film is out.
Shooting for 47 Days was completed in 2019 and the trailer was released in the early part of that year as well. It was announced for a 2020 release, however, no exact date was given. It seems that the makers may have decided to go down the OTT route in light of the delay in the film’s originally envisioned theatrical release. While we know that the film will be out exclusively on Zee5, a final date for that is also awaited.
Shot around Vizag, Araku, Goa, Lankavaram and Hyderabad, 47 Days also stars Pooja Jhaveri, Roshini, Sathya Prakash, Hari Teja, Ravi Varma, Srikanth Iyengar, Irfan, Baby Akshara, Mukthar Khan, Kireeti and Ashok Kumar in pivotal roles. The film is already part of the buzz due to its edgy score and soundtrack, both composed by Raghu Kunche.
