Randeep Hooda’s Swatantrya Veer Savarkar to release on OTT on this date

Randeep Hooda headliner Swatantrya Veer Savarkar now has an OTT release date. The film, which was released in theatres on March 22, will start streaming on ZEE5 on May 28.

Swatantrya Veer Savarkar marks the directorial debut for Randeep. It also features Ankita Lokhande as Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Savarkar’s ex-wife Yamunabai and Amit Sial as VD Savarkar’s brother Ganesh Damodar Savarkar.

The film was written by Randeep along with Utkarsh Naithani. It was a box office dud and made only Rs 24.51 crore, as per Sacnilk. com, against a budget of Rs 22 crore.

Our review of the film read: “For Hooda, chest-thumping is more important than heart-touching. His scenes create more of a spectacle than any lasting emotional resonance. Some scenes even end up providing unintentional humour. The director also masks certain pivotal points in Savarkar’s life including his mercy petition, which is mentioned in the film but the portrayal makes even the overtly merciful words sound heroic.”
