‘King of Kotha’ is a story of organised crime, gangster thrills, drama, romance, and revenge. The story revolves around Kannan, also known as Kannan bhai, who rules the town with his gang and illegal activities.
A righteous circle inspector, Shahul Hassan, arrives and confronts Kannan, leading to his humiliation. Seeking unconventional revenge, Shahul resurrects Raju, a once-notorious criminal who once ruled Kotha alongside Kannan.

While ‘King of Kotha’ was praised for its intense and well-choreographed fighting scenes, background score, character development, well woven and intricate storyline, it was also critiqued for its run time, pacing, slow narration, and overuse of violence to hide plot holes.
The film hit OTT on September 29 in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada languages.
