Disney+ Hotstar unveils a trailer of India’s first sci-fi comedy thriller ‘OK Computer’.
Disney+ Hotstar on Tuesday unveiled the trailer of ‘OK Computer’, which is a first-of-its-kind sci-fi comedy thriller series in India, starring Radhika Apte, Jackie Shroff, and Vijay Varma.
The official Twitter handle of Disney+ Hotstar dropped the news of the trailer release along with a tweet that read, “Kitna hi control kar loge future ko jab future hi aapko control karne waala hai? Watch the Trailer now.”
The nearly two-and-a-half-minute-long trailer opens in 2031 Goa, where a self-driving taxi named NKHL, crashes into a human pedestrian. The cyber cell agent Hari Kundu, played by Vijay Varma, thinks that it is attempted murder, while Laksmi, played by Radhika Apte, who is the head of a private organisation called PETER, which is there for the ethical treatment of robots, believes that AI is incapable of harming humans.
The ensuing chaos then includes Mickey Mouse as a possible suspect, and a hippie Jackie Shroff as Pushpak Shakur, the boss for whom being under arrest is a psychological and not a physical state of being. It mostly focuses on the dark comedy around solving the philosophical puzzle of who is to blame.
This unconventional six-episode series that focuses on the battle between ideologies, is being directed by Anand Gandhi, the man behind critically-acclaimed movies like ‘Ship of Theseus’ and ‘Tumbbad’, along with Pooja Shetty and Neil Pagedar. It is slated to release on March 26 on Disney+ Hotstar.
