Blink celebrates 50-day-run in theatres, earns recognition on OTT

The recent time-travel sci-fi thriller Blink, directed by Srinidhi Bengaluru, has completed an impressive 50-day run in theatres. Breaking notions that Kannada films struggle to attract audiences, Blink’s success has brought joy to its creators.


Meanwhile, it has been garnering rave reviews upon its OTT release as well. Within four days of its debut on Prime Video, it earned 10 million streaming minutes, setting a new record. The film’s crew shared their excitement and gratitude, highlighting the overwhelming appreciation pouring in from viewers, including a significant number of non-Kannada audiences, says Srinidhi, adding, “Social media is abuzz with positive feedback, further boosting the film’s success.”


Producer Ravichandra AJ expressed his delight and surprise at the film’s achievements: “I didn’t expect the film to reach this level. This big hit is necessary. The entire movie team has worked sincerely, and I hope they all have a good career ahead. Considering this film has no language banners, we are planning to dub the film in Telugu as soon as possible, with discussions ongoing for Tamil as well.


Actor Dheekshith Shetty shared his joy, stating, “After a long time, a new team’s film has stayed in theaters for 50 days. It is hard to believe. We have struggled a lot from the first day until now. Some people were sceptical about us drawing audiences to theatres, but we have answered them with these 50 days. My focus was not on making crores but ensuring that the producers succeed and recover their investment. I am thankful to the entire team responsible for this success.”


Blink has music by Prasanna Kumar and cinematography by Avinasha Shastry. The film also stars Chaithra Achar, Mandara Battalahalli, Gopal Kirshna Deshpande, Vajradheer Jain, Kiran Naik and Suresh Anagalli.
