Criminal Movie OTT Release Date

Criminal digital rights information is yet to be announced by the makers and movie is expected to hit the screens on 29 December 2023. Gautham Karthik entered the film industry with a simple film called ‘Kadai’ directed by Mani Ratnam. He won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut – South, the Vijay Award for Best Debut Actor, and the SIIMA Award for Best Male Debutant. After that, he did around 13 films, but the success rate was not impressive. In the span of 13 years, he acted in 13 films, which means a movie per year. He was last seen in Silambarasan’s Pathu Thala and was acclaimed for his performance. Gautham Karthik has chosen a different path; it’s better that instead of doing solo films, he also does multi-starrer films. Gautham Karthik seems super confident with Criminal, and let’s hope the film does well.

Criminal is touted to be an intense thriller, and this kind of genre demands a top-notch background score. The background score is the key to success in this genre, and renowned composer Sam CS composed the music for Criminal. Sam CS is known for his brilliant background score, I’m sure he provided outstanding music for the Criminal movie. Talking about the Criminal OTT release date, as of now there is no information available. We can expect all the details to be released very soon.
