Sita Ramam, a historical romance starring Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur, has achieved notable success at the box office because of its slow and steady pace. In addition to the original Telugu version, shows in the Hindi belt that was dubbed in other languages also drew a sizable crowd to the theatres.
This project marks writer and director Hanu Raghavapadi and Dulquer Salmaan’s follow-up to their successful 2018 partnership film Mahanati. C. Aswani Dutt is the producer of Sita Ramam under the auspices of Vyjayanthi Movies and Swapna Films.
The movie was released in theatres this year on August 5 in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam, while the Hindi dub was released on September 2.
In the romantic drama, which is set in the year 1964, Salmaan plays Lieutenant Ram, the male protagonist, while Mrunal Thakur plays Sita Mahalakshmi, the female lead. Journalist Afreen, played by actress Rashmika Mandanna, is another important character.
Notably, the film also has notable actors like Sumanth, Tharun Bhascker, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Bhumika Chawla, Vennela Kishore, Murali Sharma, and others in key roles.
Both the public and the reviewers gave Sita Ramam high marks for her performances. After its first release, OTT provider Amazon Prime purchased the movie rights to the production, and on September 9 it began streaming online on the service.
However, audiences must wait for Prime to make the Hindi version of the movie available for streaming; only the Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam versions are now available.
Although neither the producers nor the streaming service has officially confirmed the release date of the Hindi-dubbed segment, reports indicate that it may be shown by the streamer on October 2 in honor of Dusshera.
However, Amazon Prime has not yet issued a formal remark about the reports.
