Less than a month after its theatrical release, 'Liger' is heading to OTT. The film will stream on Disney + Hotstar from September 22 in all major South Indian languages. A day later, it will start streaming in Hindi as well.
Starring Vijay Deverakonda as the hero, the Puri Jagannadh directorial was a pan-India film that had Mike Tyson appear in a cameo in the climax.
Our review of the movie said that it doesn't go beyond familiar tropes and formulaic stretches. Here is the premise of the action drama: Liger (Vijay) has a natural flair for combat sports. He and his mother move to Mumbai and start running a tea stall. Thanks to his mother's motivation, Liger starts making giant strides in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) under the guidance of an expert coach. But his love affair with Taniya becomes a huge obstacle in his path. Liger develops a rivalry with Taniya's elder brother Sanju and eventually has to move to Las Vegas to realize his dream of representing India at the World MMA Championship. Once in Las Vegas, Liger faces a couple of a new set of challenges.
