ZEE5 Global today announced the release of three new films – ‘Waah Zindagi’, ‘Turtle’ and ‘Murder at Teesri Manzil 302’ to premiere on 31st December 2021.
‘Murder at Teesri Manzil 302’ is high on suspense and is directed by Navneet Baj Saini. Starring Irrfan Khan and Ranvir Shorey in pivotal roles, the film will keep you on the edge of your seat at all times. The story revolves around a murder mystery that unfolds with a lot of twists.
‘Waah Zindagi’ and ‘Turtle’ are directed by Dinesh S Yadav.
‘Waah Zindagi’ is a slice of life story about a fickle boy who is set to redeem his past. Besides being a quirky and unconventional love story, the film is a journey of a destitute farmer’s son struggling hard to become an entrepreneur to win his childhood sweetheart. His dreams seem to crash with Chinese products dumping in India. However, he decides to fight back and ends up with a Make In India initiative. The film features Naveen Kasturia, Plabita Borthakur, Vijay Raaz, Sanjay Mishra, Dharmesh Vyas, Manoj Joshi and Lalit Sharma in key roles.
‘Turtle’ is inspired by the real story of Mr. Ramkaran Choudhary (Bagod) from Village Dehlod, Rajasthan. The movie won critical acclaim at various film festivals. ‘Turtle’ also received the National Film Award for Best Rajasthani Film at the 66th National Film Awards. The film features Sanjay Mishra as the central character and highlights the issue of World Water Crisis. This film is a metaphorical depiction of the turtle, wherein a drought struck village of Rajasthan, Sanjay Mishra (as Ramkaran Choudhary), is churning the parched, sun-baked earth, to extract water and the common folk indulged in a tug of war, rotating on his shell, desperate to quench their thirst. Will he find success with his water mission, or will the villagers make him fail in his attempt?
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global said, “2021 has been a very key year for us with the launch of ZEE5 in the U.S. as the biggest market yet. So what better way could there be to close out this year than with the launch of not one but three films on 31st Dec, bringing together some of the finest talent and intriguing storylines.”
Sanjay Mishra shared, “I am delighted that two of my special films “Turtle” and “Waah Zindagi” will be premiering on ZEE5. The entire team has put in a lot of hard work, and it couldn’t have released at a better time than the eve of the New Year for the viewers. I am hopeful that people will take away something after watching these films and that they love the way we have presented them.”
