Nayanthara, who was last seen as Kanmani in Vignesh Shivan’s director Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal, has now come up with a gripping survival thriller, O2.
Nayanthara is seen as the mother of an eight-year-old boy protecting her son from a respiratory disorder. She always carries an oxygen tank to sustain him and on one fatal night, the bus they are traveling in is thrown into a valley, trapping everyone inside.
How an imperative mother protects her son and the oxygen cylinder, what happens to them forms the story of O2. The film skipped theatrical release and digital streaming rights are being acquired by Disney plus Hotstar direct OTT platform. The film premiered on June 17.
But even for the OTT versions, the movies are copied and made available on other illegal websites for download. Films and web series that are released directly on OTTs are also falling prey to piracy. Nayanthara’s 02 also surfaced on several unscrupulous websites within hours of its premiere.
