OTT platform or Theaters: Which one do you prefer?OTT is the short form of Over the Top streaming media platform. The OTT platforms we are familiar with are Hot star, Amazon Prime Videos, HBO and Netflix. Befoer lock down, Movie theaters are totally against the movies being released directly in OTT platforms. Since Theater owner association is a giant association, producers couldn't risk against them. Now due to lock down, theaters are also closed but this is the right time for movies to be released, because people have more time for family time and entertainment. So, producers, directors and actors took a step to enter OTT platform. It is a giant leap in Cinema world.
As a common people, we too enjoy the luxury of watching movie at our convenient time, less cost, and beautiful family time. Importantly, we have the advantage of skipping songs and non impressive scenes easily. Though we watch a new movie from home, we are not exploiting anybody's hard work or money, because watching a movie on OTT platform is 100% legal.
On the other side, I see some people finding it hard that these OTT platform has no censor team, so violent and adult scenes are not censored in many movies. Many youngsters who do hero worshiping miss the celebration of first day first show. So, many movie lovers feel that people may loose the movie craze in future. Even the mass production will be treated as tele series and short movies.
So, What do you feel about this OTT platform? What do you prefer to watch movies? What do you miss in OTT that is present in theater?
