Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Vakeel Saab’ Is Now Streaming On Amazon Prime Video
The courtroom drama “Vakeel Saab” is the Tollywood remake of the famous Hindi film “Pink”.
The Tollywood movie Vakeel Saab, with Pawan Kalyan in the lead, hit the big screens on April 9. Vakeel Saab is a Telugu remake of the famous Hindi movie Pink. After its theatrical release, the film is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video starting April 30. Speaking about the digital premiere, producer Dil Raju said in a statement, “Fans who watched the film in theaters loved and enjoyed the film, and for a producer there is no greater feeling like that. However, due to these difficult times, many of our fans were unable to watch the movie in theaters and I think that makes Vakeel Saab’s digital premiere even more special.
Trying out the role of a lawyer, Pawan Kalyan is seen stepping into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan of Pink, while actors Nivetha Thomas, Ananya Nagalla and Anjali, who also have lead roles, took over the roles of Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang from the original.
Shruti Haasan stars opposite Pawan as his wife in the courtroom drama. Prakash Raj also played a central role. The film revolves around three girls who are caught in the middle of a serious court case. The plot explores themes such as sexual violence against women and sexual consent. The film was also remade in Tamil as Nerkonda Paarvai with Kollywood star Ajith Kumar in the lead.
Vakeel Saab marks the last big-budget Tollywood film to hit theaters before the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic intensified across the country. The release of some of Tollywood’s most anticipated films, including Love story, Tuck Jagadish and Virata Parvam, were postponed due to the surge in the number of cases.
Directed by Sriram Venu, The Courtroom Drama Vakeel Saab is jointly funded by producers Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju. The film has music by composer S Thaman. Pawan Kalyan took a break from the movies after Agnyaathavaasi three years ago, to focus on his political career as leader of the Jana Sena party.
Pawan is currently working alongside Rana Daggubati in Tollywood remake of Malayalam movie Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
