“Brahman Naman” to premier globally on Netflix


New Delhi: The upcoming Indian comedy Brahman Naman will now be premiered exclusively and globally on Netflix, later this year.

The 80s film is directed by the famous director Q (short for Quashik Mukherjee), revolves around a champion college quiz team who try to win the all-India finals as well as lose their virginity.

The film is written by Naman Ramachandran and co-produced by Celine Loop and Steve Barron, whose credits as a director include 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and iconic music videos such as Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing”, among others.

Considered one of India’s most provocative indie film-makers, Q’s filmography includes Gandu, Tasher Desh and Ludo.

“Brahman Naman is Indian cinema at its boldest fast, furious and raucously funny,” said Netflix Chief content officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. “It’s a movie that will delight adolescents of all ages, and we’re excited to bring this hilarious tale to our members around the world.”

Brahman Naman stars Shashank Arora (who starred in Titli which premiered at Cannes in 2014) in the title character who leads his quiz team members with Tanmany Dhanania and Chaitanya Varad as his sidekicks, with the cast also featuring Vaiswath Shankar, Sindhu Sreenivasa Murthy and Sid Mallya.(input from agencies)(image: cordcuttersnews)
