Does Roohi have a Netflix release date? The 2021 Hindi movie is gaining buzz, but when is it coming to the streaming service?

Last year was arguably both brilliant and bittersweet for movie fans.

Fortunately, so many excellent and anticipated titles were able to reach screens, including I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Tenet, Da 5 Bloods and Mank.

On the other hand, some of the films audiences were most excited for – No Time to Die, Dune, Black Widow, A Quiet Place Part II – were delayed and are yet to reach viewers.

However, it does mean that audiences have more to cherish this year and one title many were expecting in 2020 that was delayed is Roohi.

Directed by Hardik Mehta, this Hindi-language horror-comedy has recently earned praise, but does Roohi have a Netflix release date?

Does Roohi have a Netflix release date?

A Roohi Netflix release date is yet to be confirmed but the distribution rights have reportedly been bought by both Netflix and Jio Studios.

This is highlighted by Republic World, which includes that it will arrive on the platforms after the film’s theatrical run has concluded. It opened in cinemas on Thursday, March 11th 2021.

As for when to expect it, it’s perhaps worth noting that it may follow in the footsteps of such films as Thalapathy Vijay’s Master earlier this year. The film premiered theatrically in mid-January before being picked up by Amazon Prime Video; it then began streaming on the platform on Friday, January 29th 2021.

So, with distribution rights for Roohi already acquired by Netflix, perhaps it could arrive on streaming as soon as late March or early April 2021. It isn’t listed in Netflix’s March line-up, but considering it only recently premiered in cinemas, it’s not worth ruling out entirely.

As for what to expect, the 2021 movie tells the story of Bhaura (Rajkumar Rao) and Kattanni (Varun Sharma) who become stranded with Roohi in the forest. Bhaura falls for Roohi but a reveal complicates things considerably.

It was originally set for release in June 2020 but production was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
