Gangs of Godavari on Netflix

Netflix released a new trailer of Gangs of Godavari, announcing that the film will be released on the OTT platform on June 14. They wrote on X (formerly Twitter), “Tiger Ratnakar ki thelisindhalla okate. Evadaina meedhaki osthe vaala medha padipodame. #GangsofGodavari coming to Netflix on 14 June in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada! (Tiger Ratnakar knows only one thing. To attack anyone threatening him.)”

The trailer shows the kind of man Ratna (Vishwak) is: someone who claws his way to the top to become a politician. It shows him falling for Bujji (Neha) and having a family with her but also making numerous enemies that threaten his peace. He is shown as someone who is ruthless in his quest for power. Gangs of Godavari is set in the coastal regions of Andhra Pradesh, India and takes place over decades.

Short theatrical windows

Irrespective of how the film fares at the box office, the short theatrical windows for some recent films set a dangerous precedent. Recently, VV Gopala Krishna’s Satyadev-starrer Krishnamma was released on Amazon Prime Video just a week after its theatrical release in May. Gangs of Godavari becomes the second Telugu film in recent times to have such a short theatrical window.

Movie buffs also pointed out the dangerous trend on X, with one person writing, “ఇంత దానికి... Hype, Elevation, Chief guest, Build-up Uu, Rls ayyaka Press Meet Uu...Then @ActorSatyaDev's #Krishnamma & now #GangsOfGodavari. Ee OTT vishayam lo fully disappointed anna @VishwakSenActor @vamsi84. (Why so much hype, elevation, chief guest, press meets and more just to release the film on OTT. I’m so disappointed.)”

Another wrote, “2 week theatrical window is bound to kill the theatre occupancies down the line. Then #Krishnamma now #GangsofGodavari. Down the line don't complain that people are not coming to theatres. I just saw GOG, you give that into my TV within a week, whats the point! @vamsi84.” Few others also expressed their disappointment that the film was releasing on OTT just in 2 weeks, with one writing, “Enti 2 weeks kya OTT lo vastunda. (It’s coming on OTT in just 2 weeks?)”
