Naga Chaitanya’s latest project, “Dhootha,” a supernatural suspense-thriller directed by Vikram K Kumar, has stirred up a blend of anticipation and dissatisfaction among fans. This eight-episode series, slated to stream on Prime Video, follows journalist Sagar (played by Naga Chaitanya), whose life takes a grim turn as foreboding newspaper clippings predict tragic occurrences. With notable stars like Parvathy Thiruvothu, Prachi Desai, and Priya Bhavani Shankar, the show promises an enticing storyline. It’s set to premiere on Prime Video in just a few hours, and the response to its promotional material has been largely positive.
However, some of Naga Chaitanya’s fans aren’t entirely thrilled with “Dhootha.” They’re recalling Chaitanya’s prior collaboration with Vikram Kumar in “Thank You,” which unfortunately bombed at the box office last year. Interestingly, “Dhootha” seems to hold more promise and excitement compared to “Thank You.” These fans express disappointment, feeling that “Dhootha” should have been a theatrical release due to its engaging narrative, while “Thank You” could have been better suited for an OTT platform. They believe the choice of release platforms for these projects seems mismatched, wishing that “Dhootha” had graced the theaters and spared them from the disappointing box office fate of “Thank You.”
Overall, there’s a mix of enthusiasm and regret among fans as they await the premiere of “Dhootha” on Prime Video.
