The teaser of the Telugu anthology film Pitta Kathalu, the Telugu edition of Lust Stories with fresh short films, was released by Netflix India on Wednesday. Netflix’s First Telugu Film Pitta Kathalu is directed by Tharun Bhascker, BV Nandini Reddy, Nag Ashwin, and Sankalp Reddy. The Pitta Kathalu teaser features actress Shruti Haasan, Amala Paul, Eesha Rebba, Lakshmi Manchu, Jagapathi Babu, Satyadev, Saanve Megghana, Sanjith Hegde among others.
The Pitta Kathalu teaser, which is of around 40-seconds duration, is all about the 4 stories of desire and lust from the four women’s points of view. From secrets and lies to jealousy and control, four stories in this anthology film explore the darker, deceptive sides of love, and also Pitta Kathalu teaser contains several steamy scenes which may be a first in Telugu OTT.
The teaser is too short to drop any hint about the stories and how the anthology will be. But one can say that Netflix has packaged it well, with known faces in the acting and direction department. It is also a novel theme for Telugu OTT. Eroticism has been mostly a separate segment confined to an unspoken section even in Telugu films.
Pitta Kathalu Telugu is an attempt to make it mainstream with the help of known faces. Pitta Kathalu is Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies and Ashi Dua Sara’s Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Pitta Kathalu Full Movie will premiere on Netflix on February 19.
