Binge watching gets a new platform in Assam as OTT platform Reeldrama, packed with a grand collection of films, web series and shows, makes a star-studded entry from January 22.
The dedicated OTT (Over-The-Top) platform with loads of Assamese content, was announced amid a host of dignitaries in Guwahati on January 21.
“Reeldrama brings home to you the culture of Assam in all its glory with stories, shows, music and conversations about the art, history, literature, folklore and cinema of the land. With its array of thoughtfully curated content and innovative programs, Reeldrama has something for everyone,” said Sumit Dasgupta, director at Reeldrama.
The platform’s content-mix includes contemporary movies, old classics and award-winning movies. It also hosts web series in various genres.
The platform also hosts shows from the field of music, comedy, poetry, cookery and devotion. For young minds, Reeldrama has a dedicated kid’s zone that contains animated moral stories and grandma tales.
For someone willing to learn the art of filmmaking or Hindustani classical vocal, the platform offers master class sessions which is a first-of-its-kind educational series with instructions in local language. “Several such interesting concepts will be introduced in this section in times to come,” Dasgupta added.
The inaugural event was attended by many celebrities from the Assamese film industry. Popular film actors and filmmakers unveiled the app, website and logo for the cine lovers.
“The Assamese viewer is looking to enjoy good cinema that is otherwise restricted with the limited number of theatres in the state. The platform brings viewers the choicest local movies that can be viewed from the comfort of their homes,” said Kuheli Dasgupta, director at Reeldrama.
“For those in the movie industry, Reeldrama serves as an alternate medium to distribute Assamese cinema. From filmmakers, producers to story tellers and aspirants seeking opportunities, this is the ideal new platform to connect with global audiences seeking high quality Assamese content,” she said.
“One of the platform’s objectives is to unearth the rich talent that Assam abounds in but which unfortunately lacks the means to showcase itself. Reeldrama supports such talent by being the ideal platform that also provides financial support to create content that reaches global audiences,” she added.
While the wide array of content is a talking point for the viewers, film producers in particular will benefit from enjoying movie viewership from Assamese diaspora across the globe.
