In line with its vision of ‘Stronger Together’, ZEE5 Global, the largest OTT platform for South Asian content has over the last year been steadily investing in creating local Bangla content with leading directors like Abrar Athar, Tanim Noor, Krishnendu Chattopadhyay, Anam Biswas and others.
In yet another milestone, ZEE5 has now announced the release of its very first full-length feature film and fourth Bangla Original, a romantic comedy web film – Jodi Kintu Tobuo at a virtual press conference on Tuesday. The announcement was made by Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer of ZEE5 Global, who also shared an exclusive look at the latest trailer of the movie.
The online event also saw the star-studded cast of the film – Ziaul Faruq Apurba, Nusraat Faria, Imtu Ratishand Amaan Reza and the director Shihab Shaheen coming together to share their experiences of working on the film, and to talk about what makes the film the “Bangladeshi Wedding of the Year.”
Jodi Kintu Tobuo, directed by national award-winning director Shihab Shaheen, follows the love story of an urban couple - Abir and Preety, who experience a roller coaster of emotions and complex situations to realize their love for each other.
The film will see Apurba and Faria being paired together for the first time as an on-screen couple, next to notable actors, Tariq Anam Khan, Saberi Alam, Naziba Bashar, Imtu Ratish and Amaan Reza.
The film will be streaming on ZEE5 from April 1 and like the other Bangla Originals, will be free to watch for audiences in Bangladesh.
“Jodi Kintu Tobuo is a classic mix of romance, comedy and drama, and we couldn’t have featured a better couple than Apurba and Faria to bring it to life. It’s been a pleasure to work with ZEE5 and I’m very happy that our work can be appreciated by not just the local audience here in Bangladesh, but also Bangladeshis living abroad and other audiences. We really hope people have as much fun watching it as we did making it.” said DirectorShihab Shaheen.
ZEE5 has already achieved massive success with Mainkar Chipay, WTFry and action thriller web-series Contract.
