With the acquisition of The Disciple, a Marathi-language drama in Marathi, Netflix is once more looking to enter the Indian market. Shaping up to be one of the biggest Indian Originals to land in 2021, we’re expecting The Disciple to be a smash hit with Indian subscribers when it arrives on Netflix exclusively in April 2021.
Chaitanya Tamhane is the director, writer, and editor of The Disciple, an Indian Netflix Original Marathi language drama. Alfonso Cuarón the director of the Academy Award-winning Netflix Original Roma is an executive producer on the movie.
The Disciple, the fifth Indian Netflix Original in 2021, and the third overall Marathi-language Original is released upon its release.
We can confirm the release of The Disciple on Netflix via the YouTube trailer.
Already the Disciple had its debut when it appeared in the main competition section at the Venice International Film Festival. Its North American debut was at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival.
Sharad Nerulkar has doubted his ability to master the art after years of studying the traditions and the disciplines taught by the older masters. The excellency that Sharad aspires to attain leads to self-doubt and struggle as well as sacrifice.
