The trailer of Zee5’s new original series RejctX is out. It is bold and explosive with a premise that is identifying to the youth.
RejctX is a band formed by a bunch of misfits. On the surface the basic story is similar to many coming of age plots, kind of like Gully Boy with all the rap background, but what makes RejctX different is the whole attitude and the making style. It is sensationalist in nature and takes a no-holds-barred approach at least based on the trailer.
The various characters are neatly introduced with an electrifying background score. And their issues and different hooks are set up in a slick and thrilling manner in the short duration. Sumit Vyas, Kubbra Sait, Anisha Victor, Ridhi Kakkar, and Ahmad Masi Wali play the principal characters.
Goldie Bahl, who once made the Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai, and all-time debacle Drona is behind RejctX as a creator. One hopes the series doesn’t follow the same reception that his movies did. The trailer does look well put together, but one can certainly see the artificiality all over. Let’s hope that is not the case with the series in totality. RejctX streams online from July 25th on Zee5.
