There is a noticeable increase in the popularity of original Tamil content on OTT. After disappointing starts, a number of industry platforms have overhauled their web series strategy, and it seems to be working. Suzhal: The Vortex, Amazon Prime Video’s most recent Tamil original, can probably be considered the turning point of this second run due to the positive attention it received for the way it handled a thriller episodic. The lackluster OTT beginnings of Tamil entertainment, which relied mostly on foul language, gore and provocative content, seem to be a thing of the past now that a number of series have been revealed and the names associated with them.
Here is the list of upcoming Tamil web series on OTT platforms:
THE VILLAGE ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO
The Village, billed as the first Indian television program to take its ideas from a graphic novel, tells the story of a family on a road trip besieged by a group of mutants. The program will be Arya’s first appearance on a digital platform.
