After Dahanam, Ram Gopal Varma wants to spin his cult-hit Satya into the OTT mode by making a web series
The upcoming web series ‘Dahanam’, produced by Ram Gopal Varma, will start streaming on the OTT platform MX Player from April 14. Directed by Agasthya Manju, ‘Dahanam’ stars Abhishek Duhan, Isha Koppikar, Naina Ganguly, Pradeep Rawat and Sayaji Shinde in the lead. The seven-episode series seems to be an extension into RGV’s world of Rakhta Charitra, where the characters are addressed in far more detail than the film.
This is RGV’s first production for an OTT platform and the maverick filmmaker said that the advantage of a web series is that it gave filmmakers ample time to invest more in the characters unlike a feature film, which has set time. “So I think you live the journey of the characters much more in a web series compared to a film,” said RGV.
Especially known for his gangster-genre films many of which went on to become cult hits, RGV said that out of all of his films, the 1998 JD Chakravarthy starrer Satya would probably be good material for a web series. “Satya is so rich in characters and there can be so many different subplots that head in different directions,” he said.
