Netflix on Wednesday released the teaser of its first Telugu original film Pitta Kathalu, which is Telugu for short stories. It is an anthology film, a format that Netflix has adopted to foray into India’s vernacular market. Last year, the streaming giant made its debut in Tamil with the anthology film, Paava Kadhaigal.
For Pitta Kathalu, Netflix has assembled four distinctive filmmakers of the Telugu film industry. This four-part anthology film is directed by Tharun Bhascker, BV Nandini Reddy, Nag Ashwin, and Sankalp Reddy. The film will narrate four different tales of “four distinctly bold women”, played by Eesha Rebba, Lakshmi Manchu, Amala Paul, and Shruti Haasan.
The teaser gives us a quick glimpse into the four stories and it seems to be touching upon some bold themes. It’s the story of four women, four journeys of love and betrayal.
Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies and Ashi Dua Sara’s Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Pitta Kathalu will premiere on Netflix on February 19.
