Netflix has had a mostly poor year so far as Indian content is concerned. Some of the shows have failed big time critically. Mrs Serial Killer And Betaal are the latest examples. Anurag Kashyap too has floundered on the second season of Sacred Games and Ghost Stories segment.
Choked sees Netflix and Anurag Kashyap collaborate again after Sacred Games, Lust Stories and Ghost Stories. Will they deliver something worthwhile is the question on everyone’s mind.
The trailer of Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai does raise hopes. It is Anurag Kashyap operating his strength territory. The scale is low-key, and the focus is squarely on the content and drama. Choked deals about demonetization and its impact on a lower-middle-class family in Mumbai. What happens when money flows in the kitchen sink of a household of a building society forms the basic premise.
Saiyami Kher plays the lead role in the movie. Malayalam actor Roshan Matthew makes his Bollywood debut with the film. He is seen playing a supporting role.
Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai will stream on Netflix in a few hours from now (June 5). The fans of the director Anurag Kashyap are eagerly waiting to see new work from him. Watch this space as we update how Anurag Kashyap fares on this occasion.
