Mumbai: Serious Men, a feature-length film produced by Cine Raas productions along with Bombay Fables, will premiere exclusively on Netflix on October 2.
The film is based on journalist-writer Manu Joseph’s bestselling novel by the same name.
Tormented with his under-privileged societal status, an ambitious underachiever capitalizes on his son’s newfound fame as a boy-genius to improve his family’s fortunes. Little does he realize that the secret he harbours will destroy the very thing he loves the most.
Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Aakshath Das, Shweta Basu Prasad and Nassar, and introducing Indira Tiwari
Nawazuddin Siddiqui said about Serious Men on Netflix: “This is my third project with Netflix and returning to the streaming service always feels like homecoming. I am excited about this film as I waited almost 20 years to work with Sudhir Mishra. It’s a dream come true. I can’t wait for the audience to watch Serious Men and join this journey with me, this Gandhi Jayanti.”
