‘Tomar Opekkhyat’, a romantic comedy web series, written and directed by Assam’s filmmaker Kenny Deori Basumatary of ‘Local Kung Fu’ fame, has been released on OTT platform, Reeldrama.
The 7-episode series features Moonmi Phukan, Gunjan Bhardwaj, Lima Das, Poonam Gurung, Bonny Deori, Alishmita Goswami, Anupam Kaushik Borah and Kenny Basumatary.
Ambar Chatterjee in his review writes: “Tomar Opekkhyat is so endearing and chocolaty sweet that I couldn’t stop myself from completing it in one go…earnest, heart-warming, and brings to the screen all that is best about true romantic love.”
‘Tomar Opekkhyat’ tells the stories of four truly terrific couples with truly terrible luck.
Bhaskar has loved Sunita for years now, but whenever he thinks of confessing his feelings, she seems to find a new boyfriend.
Moitreyee and Joseph are perfect for each other, if only they would just actually meet.
Gautam and Hana hit it off really well; in fact, too well to be true. Arif and Pinky meet at a party and bond over their love of books, but the next day when he asks the host for her number, it turns out no one knows her.
Writer-director Kenny says: “As a die-hard romantic myself, I just love the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you watch ‘Love, Actually’. I’ve always wanted to recreate that feeling myself, so I’m quite happy that Reeldrama gave us the chance to create a feel-good romantic comedy of our own.”
The series has been shot by Suruj Deka and Prayash Sharma Tamuly in Guwahati and Udalguri, said a press statement.
The songs and music have been prepared by Akashdeep Gogoi and Marathi Filmfare Award winner Utkarsh Dhotekar.
Arghadeep Barua, Anisha Saikia and Utkal Hazowari have lent their voices to the songs.
Reeldrama, a dedicated OTT (Over-The-Top) platform with loads of Assamese content, was launched recently in Guwahati.
