The viewers of Disney Plus Hotstar are still stuck in the stories about the finale of Marvel’s web series ‘Wanda Vision’. They now also have to wait for Marvel’s next series ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. OTT Disney Plus Hotstar, which has been creating a buzz among the Indian audience from both these series, has given its customers a Netflix-like shock. Science fiction enthusiasts held their heads watching the trailer of OTT’s new Indian series ‘OK Computer’.
The web series called ‘OK Computer’ is an art work by Anand Gandhi and his team associated with films like ‘Ship of Theseus’ and ‘Tumbad’. But, at least by watching the trailer, it seems that this team has no idea of the level of Indian audience’s choice on OTT. The challenge in itself is to watch the trailer of this series like thirty years ago, Doordarshan, made of stone age sentiments, industrial era institutions and space age technology cocktail. Well, the series will be talked about only after its release.
Radhika Apte, who has left from Netflix, has been seen on an OTT since a long time. The focus of the story is not on him this time either. Jackie Shroff is seen in a momentary sensation of Eureka like Archimedes. Vijay Verma is once again seen doing such a character, which is enough to sabotage the brand value he has created.
According to Disney Plus Hotstar, this six-episode series by Anand Gandhi, Pooja Shetty and Neil Pagadare has a 2031 story. Here Homo sapiens meet Robo sapiens for the first time. The story is that in Goa, an automated taxi crushes a human, leading to his death. Now the question in front of the officials is, who should be blamed for this?
The trailer also indicates that it is probably a feature film that has been waiting for its release for a long time and now OTT is being slit in the neck of customers who pay fees every month. Seeing ‘Wanda Vision’ on one side and ‘Ok Computer’ on the other side of the same OTT can only be felt with pity for its Indian creative team. The making of ‘OK Computer’ reminds me of the days of ‘Shaktimaan’ though the video effects were even better.
