After a successful theatre run, 'CBI 5: The Brain' which is streaming on Netflix continues to be among the top 10 movies which are trending on the OTT platform. Presently, the film is positioned at No.8 on Netflix.

For two consecutive weeks, the film was positioned at No 4 in the world Netflix rankings. Between June 13 and 18, it was viewed by over 28.8 lakh people on Netflix. The film was trending in the Gulf countries, Pakistan, Maldives, Malaysia, Singapore and Srilanka.
