The revamped streaming platform Eros Now is bringing OTT viewers a grim and gritty story of sex-trafficking that is sure to chill them to the bone. Called ‘Flesh’, the series marks the return to OTT of director Danish Aslam, who had earlier given viewers the irreverent feminist drama, It’s Not So Simple. Eros Now has just dropped the trailer of Flesh, and at first glance, the series seems to be an explosive look at the menace of trafficking of women and minor girls for the flesh trade.
Fiesty actress Swara Bhasker plays police officer Radha, who is drawn to investigate the murk and sleaze of a world dark and downright forbidding. A sixteen year old girl Zoya (Mahima Makwana) is missing, and as Radha digs deeper into her disappearance, she unlocks salacious secrets of the country’s flourishing flesh trade.
Akshay Oberoi is exciting in a surprising role – the primary antagonist, and leader of the sex traffickers. He stands out in the two and a half minute trailer as a creepy, menacing man who loves to dress in drag, kills with cold dispassionate impunity and is obviously a dangerous man to cross. Swara is efficient and impactful as always, in her role of a badass police officer.
Flesh stars Swara Bhaskar, Akshay Oberoi, Vidya Malavade, Kavin Dave, Yudhishtar Urs, Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi, Pooja Bhamrah, Rohit Mehra, Auroshikha Dey, Jayan Rawal, Mahima Makwana, Ishaan A Khanna, Uday Tikekar, Natasa Stankovic and Sayandeep Sengupta in pivotal roles. Though we didn’t see much of the other cast members in the trailer of Flesh, hogged as it was by Swara and Akshay Oberoi.
Flesh is produced by Sidharth Anand Productions, and directed by Danish Aslam. It has been written by Pooja Ladha Surti, the writer of seminal thriller, Andhadhun.
As exciting and nail-biting as the Flesh trailer was, it seems audiences are poised to be dished out engaging and edge-of-the-seat fare. The series had been announced long back in 2018, was delayed several times, and is releasing only now.
Flesh premieres on Eros Now on 21st August. Have a look at the trailer of the upcoming series below –
