‘Kudi Yedamaithe’, the eight-episode web series, is now streaming on Aha. With the fantasy crime thriller receiving critical acclaim and generally positive feedback on social media, it seems it has successfully drawn the attention of the film industry to the concept of time-loop.
For the unversed, ‘Time Loop’ as a plot device has been quite a sought-after narrative device in Hollywood. For decades, the audience there has been familiar with it. ‘Groundhog Day’, which is a 1993 American fantasy comedy, is considered the trendsetter in this regard.
In recent months, even OTT giants such as Netflix and Hulu have come up with content based on the ‘Time Loop’ plot device. With ‘Kudi Yedamaithe’, the southern film industry will most likely come to see the potential of the device.
Directed by Pawan Kumar, ‘KY’ stars Amala Paul and Rahul Vijay in lead roles.
