Mumbai: Pushpa: The Rise- Part 1, the Telugu movie starring Allu Arjun in the titular role will be premiering on Prime Video on 7 January. The film written and directed by Sukumar will be available in Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
Produced by Mythri Movie Makers and Muttamsetty Media, the action drama also stars Rashmika Mandanna and marks the debut of the noted Malayalam and Tamil actor, Fahadh Faasil in Telugu cinema.
'Pushpa: The Rise' takes viewers on a galvanizing, intensely wild, hair-raising ride deep into the Seshachalam forests situated in Andhra Pradesh. The lorry driver Pushpa Raj, portrayed by Allu Arjun, is deeply involved in the smuggling of red sandalwood trees.
The movie chronicles the fight of good against evil as the police crackdown on the smuggling empire that is rampant in these parts. The fast-paced, powerful, and thought-provoking narrative pulls the viewers into a vortex where there is no right or wrong, and there are no good or bad men, but only heroes in different hues of gray.
The movie garnered rave reviews from fans and the film industry alike, and the first day of its release across the country saw packed houses, with Allu Arjun and Fahadh Faasil fans thronging cinema houses.
Pushpa: The Rise - Part 1 will join thousands of TV shows and movies from Hollywood and Bollywood in the Prime Video catalogue.
