Vijay Deverakonda’s movie Liger did miserably at the ticket office. The movie’s producers suffered enormous losses, and the trade circles also were quite dissatisfied with the movie’s performance. The movie premiered to negative reviews and was unable to rebound following Day 1’s respectable openings, despite extensive pan-Indian advertising and significant hype.
Liger is currently prepared for OTT distribution. Exact one month well after its theatrical debut, the movie will get its online premiere. Starting on September 22nd, Disney + Hotstar will broadcast the sports action drama. On September 22, Liger would be available in Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam. A future date will see the release of the Hindi version.
Movie fare at theatres
The pan-Indian movie “Liger” starring Vijay Deverakonda has released in theatres on August 25 following a few controversies as well as a string of marketing. Puri Jagannath’s action drama, though, underwhelmed critics and audiences and performed below par on the big screen. The OTT rollout for “Liger,” however, has now been confirmed, which will allow the film’s creators to reach a larger audience.
Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger performed best in north India out of all the markets, bringing in more than 20Cr net plus close to 9Cr share. Ramya Krishnan with Ananya Pandey had major parts in the sports action drama. The movie was co-produced by Puri and Karan Johar. This eagerly awaited pan-Indian initiative was made available in Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, and Hindi in addition to Malayalam.
Just a few minutes past midnight on September 22, the official Disney+ Hotstar Telugu Twitter account tweeted, “Witness @TheDeverakonda in all his Mad Glory, as #LIGER! #LigerOnHotstar Streaming Now,” along with Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, plus Kannada, as well as a movie poster.
What is the Liger movie’s cast list?
Along with Ramya Krishnan, Makarand Deshpande, Ronit Roy, and Vishu Reddy playing significant supporting parts, Liger featured Vijay Deverakonda as well as Ananya Pandey as the key characters.
In the movie, Vijay portrayed an MMA fighter who is the main character. The late boxing great Mike Tyson also makes a cameo appearance in the movie. Ananya Pandey with Vijay Deverakonda made their film debuts in Tollywood as well as Bollywood, respectively, with Liger.
What did Vijay Devarokonda say?
IANS cited Vijay as expressing the following regarding his on-screen persona: The fact that my character in the movie struggles with stammering added appeal. On the one hand, he is the guy who is so physically strong and threatening to others; he is a fighter, yet he is unable to say the three words “I love you” to the girl he loves. It added some subtle humour as well as emotional nuance to his presentation. He said he had trouble getting the appropriate note when we first started filming, but after 3 days, everything came naturally.
In addition to the 2 leads, Mike Tyson, an earlier American professional boxer, makes his Indian film debut within Liger. The movie was funded by Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur under the name of Puri Connects and by Karan Johar below the banner of Dharma Productions. Ramya Krishnan, Makarand Deshpande, and Ronit Roy also had major roles. Vijay Deverakonda made his cinematic debut in Hindi with “Liger.”
