ZEE5 Global has released the trailer for the World Digital Premiere of the highly-acclaimed Marathi film ‘Ghar Banduk Biryani’. After receiving rave reviews at the box office, the Marathi film will be available to global streaming audience only on ZEE5 Global from 2nd June. Produced by Zee Studios and national award-winning director Nagraj Manjule, ‘Ghar Banduk Biryani’ is directed by debutant film-maker Hemant Awtade and stars Nagraj Manjule, Sayaji Shinde, Akash Thosar and Sayli Patil in the lead.
‘Ghar Banduk Biryani’ opens in the fictitious area of Kolagad, which is rife with rebel activity. Commander Pallam (Sayaji Shinde) and his rebels are plotting revenge on an MLA from their hiding place in the forest. In a nearby village, Raju (Akash Thosar) is meeting his prospective bride Lakshmi (Sayli Patil), whose father has one condition for the marriage – that Raju should at least have a house of his own. For Raju, a cook at a local dhaba, making the best biryani in town is easy, but getting a house is next to impossible.
Away from all this, Inspector Raya Patil (Nagraj Manjule) is performing his duty honestly in Pune, something that lands him in trouble, resulting in a transfer to, where else, Kolagad. At some point, these three stories come together, but how these protagonists’ paths cross is what takes the story of ‘Ghar Banduk Biryani’ ahead in an entertaining and fun way.
Filled with dramatic twists and turns and a cat and mouse chase interspersed with love, longing and loss, ‘Ghar Banduk Biryani’ is a must watch action-drama film with some great performances by an ensemble cast.
