Nishabdham, which had a direct OTT release on October 2nd last year, received mixed reviews. The film failed to turn heads despite having a stellar cast including Anushka Shetty, Madhavan, Shalini Pandey (Arjun Reddy fame) and others. The latest is that the film had a telecast on TV recently. And the TRP rating is a big shocker.
A meager 3.85 TVR was recorded for Nishabdham which is not on par for Anushka’s films. Anushka’s Arundhati, Bhaagmathie were all hits on TV as well besides theatrical success. However, Nishabdham, which didn’t have theatrical release, was expected to do well on TV at least. But the thriller directed by Hemant Madhukar and screenplay by Kona Venkat failed to catch the attention of Telly audience.
Even on OTT, Nishabdham failed to do the noise. It’s a double whammy for Nishabdam makers who had made it on a grand scale with a big budget and released it in multiple languages.
