INDIA. The all-new Amazon Indian Original Series ‘Bandish Bandits’ will premiere on August 4, 2020. The romantic musical drama series follows the love story of two young performers who come from very different musical backgrounds. Bandish Bandits stars Ritwik Bhowmik as a Hindustani classical performer named Radhe and Shreya Chaudhry as popstar Tamanna. The ten-part series costars the likes of Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni, Sheeba Chaddha, Kunaal Roy Kapur, and Rajesh Tailang. The soundtrack for the series is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy who make their digital debut with Bandish Bandits. The show is produced and created by Amritpal Singh Bindra. Anand Tiwari, who previous directed the Netflix film Love Per Square Foot, serves as the series director. Bandish Bandits will release across 200 countries and territories exclusively on Prime Video.
“Bandish Bandits has been a true labour of love and we are pleased to be bringing it to a dynamic, global service like Prime Video, which champions unique original content from around the world,” rejoiced Bindra. “While elements of the show are rooted firmly in Indian tradition and values, this is without doubt a modern musical romance that will appeal to a global audience. We can’t wait to take Prime members on a journey of love, differences and discovery, led by the supremely talented Ritwik Bhowmik and Shreya Chaudhry, against a backdrop of soulful music,” he added.
“Bandish Bandits is a story about the meeting of two individuals and cultures that are in many ways different, and yet in other ways incredibly similar,” explained Tiwari. “While each character has a unique and compelling story in their own right, it’s how these stories come together which makes this series so powerful, romantic and real. I am beyond excited to bring this incredible tale of romance, beautifully told through the musical genius of composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, to Prime Video,” he added.
