ZEE5 Global, the world’s largest platform for South Asian content, has consistently delivered back-to-back blockbusters. Taking that legacy forward, it has announced the premiere of Helmet, a social, quirky comedy on 3rd September. After the grand success of Dial 100, the streaming giant has partnered once again with Sony Picturesfor this Original film. Set in the heartland, Helmet highlights one of the most pertaining issues in our society – the resistance of people to buy condoms, albeit in a non-preachy and entertaining manner.
Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and actor Dino Morea’s DM Movies, ‘Helmet’ stars Pranutan Bahl, Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee and Ashish Verma. Directed by Satramm Ramani with Screenplay & Dialogues by Rohan Shankar, the film is a quirky depiction of the entrenched taboos and diffidence surrounding the simple act of buying condoms in the nation’s heartland.
ZEE5 Global released the trailer of this social comedy, which is sure to pique the viewer’s interest around this social dilemma in a witty and satirical manner.
The film is a hilarious exploration of small-town naivety and offers insight into a milieu where even accessing a birth-control device is wrought with multiple social challenges and psychological hang-ups.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, says, “South Asia is full of fascinating narratives and from the heartland of India comes yet another one. We’re thrilled to launch the trailer of Original social comedy film Helmet. A strong entertainer that also carries a subliminal message, this film will surely win over audiences across our global markets.”
Expressing excitement at the collaboration with ZEE5, Vivek Krishnani, Managing Director, Sony Pictures Films India, says, “I’m thrilled that the world premiere of our film Helmet will unfold to audiences world over on ZEE5. Helmet is a light-hearted take on a subject that has been wrapped up in so much ignominy. The film wonderfully demonstrates that hilarity is sometimes found in the most unexpected places.”
Producer Dino Morea says, “This is a film which has been made with a sense-of-humour with a sweet message. I am also excited about the wonderfully talented ensemble cast, the refreshing storytelling by Satram, my director, and the way both entertainment and a certain intelligent sensibility blend together.
