Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo is the first film that released on OTT since the lockdown has been imposed. However, the film has been leaked by Tamilrockers on the first day of its release. Gulabo Sitabo released at 12 am on June 12 and is now free to download on the notorious pirated sites. The film has been directed by Shoojit Sircar, and was one of the most anticipated films of the year. The story of Gulabo Sitabo is set in Lucknow and follows an old man, Mirza Sheikh who is the owner of a 100-years-old haveli that he has rented to many families. However, one of his tenants, Bankey (Ayushmann Khurrana), fails to pay his rent month after month, and that troubles Mirza who’s a strict-annoying landlord. Later both Mirza and Bankey discover that the archaeological department is keeping an eye on the haveli and now they need to protect it. The film has received good response from the audience and critics as well.
The film leaking online will surely have a bad effect on it. Our film critic, Russel D'silva has given the film 3 stars out of 5. He wrote, "Take Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana out of Gulabo Sitabo, especially the former, and there's precious little to hold your interest. Its OTT release seems more like a convenient quirk of fate to escape potential theatrical disappointment rather than a product of the times we live in. I'm going with 3/5 stars with 0.5 of that rating solely dedicated to the Big B's performance."
