What is Atrangi Re?
Atrangi Re is an upcoming Indian musical romantic drama movie, produced by T-Series, Colour Yellow and Cape of Good Films production studios.
Unfortunately, very few details on the plot for Atrangi Re have been shared online, with the sense of expectation growing amongst fans thanks to the recently released trailer – see below.
“A non-linear narrative of two romances running in parallel from different timelines.” – Atrangi Re, via IMDB.
The movie is directed by fan favourite producer Aanand L Rai and stars Dhanush, Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar in the leading roles.
The movie is called ‘Galatta Kalyanam’ in the Tamil version of Atrangi Re.
Where to stream Atrangi Re?
Atrangi Re was originally scheduled to premiere in theatres across the country on February 14th, 2021, coinciding with the Valentine’s Day celebrations.
However, after numerous delays associated with the coronavirus pandemic, the producers jumped on the recent trend of opting for a digital release via an OTT streaming service.
The digital broadcasting rights were acquired by Disney Plus Hotstar for Atrangi Re on November 23rd.

- Mobile Plan: Rs 499 per year, one mobile device and HD resolution content
- Super Plan: Rs 899 per year, two devices and HD resolution content

Atrangi Re: Release date confirmed
As confirmed by Disney Plus Hotstar, Atrangi Re will release around the world for online streaming on December 24th, 2021.
As previously mentioned, the film was originally meant to premiere in theatres on Valentine’s Day, but was delayed to August and then December because of complications associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the course of the pandemic, movies from around the world have been opting to release via streaming platforms instead of waiting for cinema capacities to increase.
In September, lead actor Akshay Kumar revealed that the team were weighing up their options for streaming.
“To be honest, I haven’t yet included Atrangi Re in the list because we are still mulling over whether it should be a theatrical film or an OTT release. And OTT may simply be the medium of choice for Atrangi Re, as it looks right now.” – Akshay Kumar, via India Today.
Atrangi Re will now premiere via the Disney Plus Hotstar service on Christmas Eve and will be in competition with Netflix’s superhero movie, Minnal Murali.
