Producers have definitely minted good money on this film but what about Disney Hotstar who have paid Rs. 80 Crores for the Digital Rights of the Film.

Atrangi Re Release on Disney+ Hotsar on 24th December, 2021 and We have data of 8 days after the release of the Movie.

Disney+ Hotstar Monthly Views for last 6 months:

MonthVisits (In Crores)Growth / Decline in Views (In Crores)


Overall, Disney+ Hotstar received 1.1 Crore additional Visits in the month of December and Growth in Preceding months was much bigger. Like 5.2 cr in September, 3.75 in Oct, 2.65 in Nov and just 1.1 in December.

All these additional views cannot be only attributed to Atrangi Re Alone. Please note Visits are not equal to Subscribers as one Subscriber can go to a Platform multiple times to consumer content. Various studies suggest that a Subscriber Visits a OTT Platform More than 10 times a month, which also means that Disney+ Hotstar has got around 3 Crore or 30 million subscribers.

And The most important factor here is the releases that went out on Disney+ Hotstar in December, 2021.

  • Parampara on 24th December.
  • Hawkeye had most of the episodes releasing in December.
  • Aarya Season 2 on 10th December.

These were not the only releases in this month and all of them added to the increase on views and overall viewership. Looking at all the data, below is out conclusion:

  1. The claim that 22M Unique Views were achieved in just 7 or 10 days if false.
  2. If a Platform like Disney+ Hotstar has 3 Crores Paid Subscriber and they lead to a 35 crore views every month then a film which was viewed just 2.2 Crore times (Including Pause and Resume Sessions and uncompleted sessions) then the movie has done good but it has not been a major revenue turner for the OTT Platform.
  3. Even if assume that all the new subscribers assed in the month of December were only and only due to Atrangi Re then also it was not more than 6 Lakh Subscribers. The Average Revenue per user for this platform is Rs. 400, then also the initial investment on the film is not recovered and warrants a loss of at least 40 Crores.
  4. Add operational and server cost to this the loss will be more than 44 Crores.
  5. Atrangi Re has done well on OTT but that does not support the claim that it has broken records, that is like demeaning other films which have performed well on OTT.
