Local action film Santana was a big hit in the first weekend of its release on Netflix.

According to FlixPatrol, the action film reached the number one position worldwide on the streaming service and trended at number one in 33 of 74 territories around the world.

For South African actress Nompilo Gwala who plays Thandi in the film, starring in a trending movie is "actually quite overwhelming" she tells me during a Zoom call.
