'Tiger Nageswara Rao', starring Ravi Teja and directed by Vamsee, was released in theatres in October. Produced by Abhishek Agarwal, it was a box-office flop.
The news is that the biographical action drama has made its debut on Amazon Prime Video. The film is streaming in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
What is its plot about? The story is set in the '70s and '80s. Nageswara Rao (Ravi Teja) is a notorious thief in Stuartpuram, Andhra Pradesh. He and his gang of three other robbers set out on the path of grave dacoity, subjecting the law and order machinery to shock and awe. The IB chief Raghavendra Rajput (Anupam Kher) is worried that Rao's next target is the Prime Minister's Office. He summons Vishwanatha Sastry (Murali Sharma) to Delhi to learn about Rao so that the impending threat to the prestige of the PM can be averted. Will the Delhi machinery be able to prevent Rao from achieving his goal?
Recently, the film's producer claimed that it was his own release and that it fetched optimal returns (from theatrical and non-theatrical revenue streams).
