Amazon Prime Video Announces Massive 2024 Schedule with 69 Titles Including ‘Mirzapur 3’ and ‘Citadel: Honey Bunny’

Amazon Prime Video dramatically raised the curtain on its future content offerings with the announcement of a massive slate of 69 films and streaming series scheduled for release over the next two years, in a move that is likely to stir considerable excitement amongst viewers across India. The platform revealed 40 original titles, which include a mix of movies and series in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, plus an additional 29 licensed films, aiming to cater to a diverse range of viewers and appetites for varied genres.

The much-anticipated spy series ‘Citadel: Honey Bunny’, featuring the talents of Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu and directed by Raj & DK, is poised for a premiere, following the international ‘Citadel’ series headlined by Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden. This Indian iteration promises a unique twist to the global narrative, offering audiences a blend of espionage and romance set against the energetic ’90s.

The content roster further includes returning seasons of fan-favorite shows such as the gritty ‘Mirzapur’, the crime-centered ‘Paatal Lok’, and the quaint ‘Panchayat’, to name a few. Additionally, the upcoming lineup will introduce three new Tamil original series – ‘Gangs Kuruthi Punal’, ‘Inspector Rishi’, and ‘Snakes and Ladders’. In Telugu, viewers can look forward to the suspense drama ‘Arabia Kadali’ and a personality-driven talk show with Rana Daggubati at the helm, named ‘The Rana Connection’.

In a nod to the success of ‘Panchayat’, its flavor and essence are being tailored for Tamil and Telugu speaking audiences, marking a new milestone in the adaptation of popular content across languages. The varied lineup demonstrates how regional storytelling is being given its moment in the spotlight on the national stage, illustrating Prime Video’s commitment to celebrating the rich diversity of Indian storytelling.

Showcasing the new content at its second India showcase in Mumbai, following the inaugural event in 2022, Amazon Prime Video appears to be doubling down on the market’s potential growth. The lineup seems strategically curated, further cementing its foothold in the Indian subcontinent and perhaps signaling a challenge to its competitors in the streaming space.

Original series cover a wide spectrum of genres such as urban horror, crime thrillers, dramas, comedies, and even period action, featuring a host of renowned and rising stars. ‘Andhera’, for instance, throws a cop and medical student into the heart of Mumbai’s darkness, where they confront a sinister force lurking within the city. ‘Bandwaale’ follows a young poetess’s quest for freedom through her art in a town where tradition looms large. ‘Call Me Bae’ chronicles the comedic adventures of a down-and-out socialite turned resourceful journalist, while ‘The Great Indian Code’ is set to narrate a story of aspiring engineers aiming to revolutionize India’s IT industry.

The original movies front is equally promising, with ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ depicting the narrative of a young girl’s evolution into an indomitable freedom fighter during the Quit India Movement. ‘Supermen of Malegaon’ delivers a heartwarming narrative about a group of friends aiming to create a movie that captures the hearts of their small town, whilst other films like ‘The Mehta Boys’ delve into the nuanced dynamics of father-son relationships.

This expansive arsenal of titles reflects Amazon Prime Video’s ambition to weave stories for every mood and reflects the breadth and depth of Indian cinema that resonates with a global audience. The upcoming slate of releases is not just about quantity but a rich blend of variety, aimed at giving viewers a taste of the multitude of Indian narratives waiting to be explored. With this wide-ranging lineup, Prime Video is poised to keep viewers hooked to their screens through 2024 and beyond, bringing the thrills of Indian storytelling right into their living rooms.
