On OTT platforms like Amazon, ZEE5, Netflix, movie lovers can watch the web release of their choice in the comfort of their house. And, plethora of options have only made movie watching at home, more pleasant experience.

Some amazing movies such as ‘Malik’ and ‘Sherni’ were released on OTTs recently and were acclaimed by viewers and critics both.
