Guwahati: One of Assam’s leading OTT platforms, Reeldrama, announced eight new original web series along with two new original films in Assamese language, exclusively for audiences in the region, at an event in Guwahati’s Novotel Hotel.
Speaking on the occasion, the Hyderabad-based company director, Kuheli Dasgupta said, “We are humbled by the love and affection showered on us during our eight-month long journey. Since January this year, Reeldrama released four movies before their theatrical releases.”
“We also added nine movies and one web series during the period. Both our exclusive web series, ‘Tomar Opekkhyat’ and ‘FISAA’ generated tremendous response. Viewers appreciated our efforts to offer diverse content and asked us to bring more such shows,” she added.
“Since the commencement of our journey, we are witnessing a solid growth in consumption of Assamese content. We wanted to offer a platform for the Assamese filmmakers to showcase their talent and help them reach out to the worldwide audience through Reeldrama,” said Sumit Dasgupta, director at Reeldrama.
“Strengthening this commitment, we are happy to announce eight new exclusive web series and two original films today – the biggest cluster of content to be announced in the Assamese entertainment industry. We promise a very exciting time ahead for the audience,” the director added.
The menace of Piracy
What might be a major threat to their line up of new releases on the app, Reeldrama has come to face its worst fears due to Piracy of their content.
“People are recording our content and we can find them on several websites, we got this feedback from our well wishers who told us that it is available free of cost on certain platforms,” Reeldrama director Kuheli Das Gupta told EastMojo.
“We have lodged an FIR against a few identifiable offenders and the Cyber crime department is looking into it. Hopefully such activities will end. We hope people will download our app and legitimately watch the content,” she added.
