Prime Video’s upcoming crime thriller “Bambai Meri Jaan” tells an action-packed tale of good vs. evil in post-independence India — but at its core, the show is a story about family.Bambai Meri Jaan Season 1 Download.Kaala Season 1 Download.
Premiering Sept. 14 on the streamer, the 10-episode series was created by Rensil D’Silva (“Dial 100”) and Shujaat Saudagar (“The Underbug”), based on a story by longtime crime journalist S. Hussain Zaidi. At the show’s global premiere in London on Tuesday night, the cast and crew — including D’Silva and Saudagar; Excel Media and Entertainment producers Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Kassim Jagmagia; stars Kritika Kamra and Avinash Tiwary; and Prime Video execs James Farrell and Aparna Purohit — spoke with Variety‘s Naman Ramachandran about bringing “Bambai Meri Jaan” to life.
“This family unit … really, really engages you beyond the bad guys vs. the good guys,” Akhtar said. “It really stays with you. It’s an emotional journey, you feel what the characters are feeling.”There was also a sense of family on set, as the show has faced several hurdles since it first began production four years ago.“This entire shoot was really born out of troubled times because we had to battle two deadly waves of COVID, the set had to be broken and reconstructed twice from scratch, and if that wasn’t enough, we had a cyclone as well,” Saudagar said.
