Yessma, Malayalam OTT platform streaming adult content, released the Tamil-dubbed version of the first two episodes of its web series Ladies Hostel. The Malayalam version of the series premiered on the digital platform in October.
The series, which is directed by Lakshmi Dheeptha, has episodes that are nearly 20 minutes long and revolve around two girls, who share a hostel room. As days go by, their relationship also evolves from being hostel mates to more than friends.
Since its inception in August, the adult platform has released several series including Nancy, Hot Stone, Rs 1000, Paalpayasam and Room Number 222 – all of which were also helmed by Lakshmi. Ladies Hostel, however, is the first web series to be dubbed in Tamil by the platform, which had stirred a major controversy last month after two actors had claimed that the makers made them act in an adult series without their consent and had made them sign agreements that would have them to pay hefty amount if they backed out.
One of them had even approached the court to file a plea against the OTT platform as well as its director Lakshmi, claiming that the platform promised the person opportunities to act in movies but instead made him “act in an obscene film”.
The platform’s content is produced by Aryanandha Creations. Two series dropped on the platform in November – The Hot Stone and Rs 1000. Both the series are for adults only. The platform is yet to announce if like Ladies Hostel, these series too will get a Tamil version.
Yessma had launched in August, claiming to be the first Malayalam OTT platform to only stream adult content. Several other platforms such as Ullu TV, EORTV, NueFlicks, KindiBoz and Prime Fliz are also streaming erotic content in various languages such as Telugu, Hindi, Marathi and Bangla.
