Nila Madhab Panda, India’s internationally regarded and known filmmaker, and the makers of ‘The Jengaburu Curse’ released the trailer for the next Sony LIV series on Thursday.
The show boasts a fine ensemble cast of performers in crucial parts, including Faria Abdullah, Nasser, Makarand Deshpande, Sudev Nair, Deipak Sampat, and Hitesh Dave, and is based on the increasing climatic changes and their negative impacts on nature and humans.
The series, written by Mayank Tewari, is set in a small town in Odisha and follows the life of London-based financial analyst Priya Das. Das seeks for her father when he vanishes under suspicious circumstances. When she meets the unusual Bondia tribe in Odisha, her inquiry leads her to an unjustified connection between nature and people. The show tries to explore mankind’s insatiable greed and how it impacts nature.
Speaking further about what the show entails, Panda says, “The Jengaburu Curse is the first Indian cli-fi thriller series. The show delves deep into the repercussions of mankind’s relentless pursuit of natural resources, revealing the alarming consequences that follow. Through Jengaburu, our aim is to entertain the audience as well as raise awareness about the dire need for environmental conservation. We are proud to have brought together a talented cast and crew and can’t wait for audiences to embark on this thrilling adventure with us.
The show streams on Sony Liv from August 9, 2023 onwards.
