Netflix announces new Indian original film Brij Mohan Amar Rahe

Internet entertainment service Netflix has released the trailer of a new Indian original film, Brij Mohan Amar Rahe. This is the first Netflix original from Yoodlee Films, whose critically acclaimed Ajji premiered at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival and is also available on Netflix. Brij Mohan Amar Rahe will be exclusively available to over 130 million Netflix members across 190 countries on August 3rd, 2018.

Brij Mohan Amar Rahe revolves around the life of Brij Mohan (36), a hosiery shop owner in a busy Delhi market, who desperately wants to change his life. In order to escape his wretched life, he changes his appearance and adopts a new identity but ends up committing a botched-up murder. On the run and hopeful of making a new beginning, he instead ïŹnds himself trapped in a web of his own making. The film stars Arjun Mathur, Nidhi Singh, Sheetal Thakur, Manav Vij, Sunny Hinduja, Vijayant Kohli and Yogendra Tikku in key roles.

Swati Shetty, Director, International Originals and Acquisitions, Netflix says, “We are very proud to have films of the calibre of Brij Mohan Amar Rahe on the service, where millions of film-lovers around the world can discover these strong, captivating stories. We are also thrilled to get our first collaboration with Saregama off the ground, marking another milestone in our commitment towards forging solid relationships with Indian content creators.”

Siddharth Anand Kumar, VP, TV & Films, at Saregama says, “Netflix is the premium VOD player and it is especially gratifying that the very first two films in our slate have found a home on this platform. It encourages us to continue to make fearless films that will reach out to audiences both domestic and international.”

Nikhil Bhat, director of Brij Mohan Amar Rahe, said, “I am extremely happy to know that Brij Mohan Amar Rahe has been selected as a Netflix Original film; the film is a comic and complex look at the concept of Karmic justice, and plays out with ironic humour.”
