Promising a perfect treat for every kid and pet lover this summer, Amazon Prime Video has unveiled the trailer of Oh My Dog. Produced by 2D Entertainment and directed by Sarov Shanmugam, the family entertainer is an emotional story about a kid Arjun (Arnav Vijay) and a pup Simba, who share an inseparable bond, winning the hearts of people wherever they go.

The Amazon Original movie will release on April 21 across more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on Prime Video, and basically in Tamil and Telugu.

Oh My Dog brings together three generations of a family, the real-life grandfather-father-son trio of Vijaykumar, Arun Vijay and Arnav Vijay for the first time on-screen. It also features Mahima Nambiar and Vinay Rai.

Actor-producer and founder of 2D Entertainment, Suriya, said, “Oh My Dog is a beautiful story throwing light on the friendship between man and his best friend. It touches upon important values of unconditional love, friendship and kindness. It’s a film that every family should watch together, especially kids and pet lovers. An emotionally engaging tale like this deserves to travel far and wide, and we are glad that it is premiering globally on Prime Video.”

“This is one of the most special projects of my career and, personally, a landmark movie for our entire family for multiple reasons. Not only was I thrilled to work with my father and my son, who makes his debut, but being a father to Arnav made me realize the importance of movies that cater to young audiences. The film is a true family entertainer and I look forward to the story inspiring children to retain their honesty, innocence and virtues,” said Arun Vijay.

“Rich in emotions, this film delves deep into the lessons that we are all taught as kids but forget as we grow up owing to the pressure of responsibilities. The movie portrays how children with their strong will-power and values can show adults the right path. It was a delightful experience to work with Vijaykumar-sir, Arun and Arnav, as we were able to witness three generations of actors delivering their best performances,” said director Sarov Shanmugam.

Oh My Dog is based around the emotional bond between a blind puppy, Simba, and Arjun and their love and affection for each other. Arjun meets Simba as he saves him and then raises him. Arjun and Simba course through obstacles and eventually find their way into everyone’s hearts around them.

The film is produced by Jyotika-Suriya, co-produced by Rajsekar Karpoorasundarapandian and S.R. Ramesh Babu of RB Talkies with music by Nivas Prasanna and cinematography by Gopinath. It is part of a four-film deal between Prime Video and 2D Entertainment.
