The first theatrical release of the year was actor Seema Pahwa’s directorial debut film, ‘Ram Prasad Ki Tehrvi’. The film starring Naseeruddin Shah, Supriya Pathak, Konkona Sen Sharma, Parambrata Chatterjee, Vikrant Massey, Vinay Pathak, Manoj Pahwa, Ninad Kamat, Sadiya Siddiqui, Divya Jagdale, Deepika Amin, Brijendra Kala, and Rajendra Gupta was largely appreciated by the critics and was released on 1st January 2021.
The film was all ready to release on the global streaming platform Netflix on 31st March, but due to some issues was not released on the said date.
According to the sources, the team members of the film were upset with the release of the digital film Pagglait on Netflix, as both films deal with sudden death in the family and the resulting chaos. Also, Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi’s director Seema Pahwa confirmed that both the films were shot in the same house as well. However, she further said that “Ours was an original film and so is Pagglait. I would not say that they copied our film. I guess it must be a coincidence.”
Nevertheless, this controversy is what has intrigued viewers even more about Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi’s digital premiere.
But now it has come to light that Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi is all set to release on Netflix on April 24, that is, next Saturday. Netflix made this announcement today on their app.
