Choona actor Jimmy Shergill told The Indian Express during the last summer that he expected the comic heist series centred in the environment of Uttar Pradesh politics to premiere on Netflix in 2022. That didn’t happen, but the programme appears to be almost set to go. The wait for Choona will end soon.
Trial By Fire
A fire at a South Delhi movie theatre in 1997 killed 59 people and wounded 100 more. Trial By Fire is based on the book of the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost two children in the fire. Prashant Nair’s non-linear technique is used to portray the tale of the parents’ search of justice in the decades following the tragedy. Trial By Fire will premiere on Netflix on January 13, 2023.
Class is a remake of the successful Netflix Original Spanish series Elite. Ashim Ahluwalia, whose feature films have appeared at Cannes and the Toronto International Film Festival, directs the new show. Netflix characterises the social problem drama as follows:
“When three new pupils from vastly diverse backgrounds upset the current relationships at New Delhi’s prestigious Hampton International, sparks flare.”
Finally, the Excel Entertainment series Dabba Cartel seems to be moving forward. According to PeepingMoon, Shonali Bose has been hired to helm the drama, which Variety described as “a narrative of five women who operate a high stakes hidden cartel,” with Shabana Azmi signed on to play one of the key characters. Because filming has yet to begin, a 2023 release date is doubtful, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
Guns & Gulaabs
The comic thriller Guns & Gulaabs is the first result of a multi-year relationship between Raj & DK and Netflix. According to Netflix-the new series starring Rajkummar Rao, Dulquer Salmaan and Adarsh Gourav completed filming in April. “Inspired by the world’s misfits, Guns & Gulaabs is a narrative about love and innocence set in a criminal environment. The series is planned to merge the romanticism of the 1990s with a criminal thriller while seamlessly intertwining comedy.”
Sanjay Leela Bhansali never does anything halfway, thus Heeramandi, his debut streaming series, has everyone’s attention. Every casting rumour gets press coverage (will Rekha appear on the show? Mumtaz? Fardeen Khan? ), with a trustworthy source identifying Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Manisha Koirala, and Sonakshi Sinha as the show’s starring females. Bhansali’s story of courtesans in pre-independence Lahore is sure to be extravagant, with pricey sets and intricate dance sequences. This one has piqued our interest.
Lust Stories 2
Though Netflix hasn’t confirmed it, a second edition of the anthology Lust Stories is in the works.Bombay Talkies, Lust Stories, and Ghost Stories were the previous three parts in the franchise, and they all contained short films directed by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar.
