Netflix acquires Kanavu Variyam
The film which won acclaim on the festival circuit will soon be available on the popular streaming platform
Kanavu Variyam, which was released in February this year, has been snapped up by Netflix. Produced by DCKAP Cinemas and distributed by Warner Bros Pictures, the film deals with power cuts in villages across Tamil Nadu and highlights the importance of organic farming.
Besides playing the lead role, Arun Chidambaram, who has also directed the film, is thrilled. “Very few Tamil films get picked by Netflix and we feel honoured that ours is one among them. After receiving recognition and appreciation from various international film festivals and the Indian audience, we are happy that the audiences from over 190 countries can now enjoy our film on Netflix. This comes as big encouragement for the team, and for other aspiring filmmakers.”
