After the initial buzz garnered through the sudden release of the Poster of Case Jaundice, hoichoi went a step ahead by launching the Official Trailer of the Original in a Virtual Press Conference, witnessed for the first time in Eastern India. After the successful build-up, the first 5 episodes of Case Jaundice (total- 10) are streaming now on hoichoi. The rest of the episodes will be streaming from 22nd May.
This series marks a lot of firsts for the cast – it is the first web series of Ankush, it is the first web series of Parambrata for hoichoi and finally, it is the first lead role of Anirban Chakrabarti on hoichoi besides his ever-green portrayal of Eken Babu. All 3 of them came together with Director Subhankar Chattopadhyay to host a Virtual Press Conference from the Facebook page of hoichoi to discuss their decision to do a web series completely shot from home, which of course has its challenges, and also, to launch the Official Trailer of the series. The VPC (Virtual Press Conference) was moderated by a popular ex-TV journalist of a leading channel.
With the first 5 episodes streaming from today, Case Jaundice is a satire of 10 episodes. Two compelling lawyers, Mr. Sen played by Parambrata Chattopadhyay and Mr. Das played by Ankush present an endearing argument in a courtroom, one of them representing human beings and the other representing coronavirus. In each episode, a debate drives the narrative between Das and Sen, moderated by the Judge played by Anirban Chakrabarti, who at times becomes partial in his witty comments. Every episode has a different case put forth in front of the judge, resulting in humourous conclusions!
Here are the 10 episodes with an idea about the cases the two lawyers take to court:
Humans Vs. Corona (In Bengali: Manush Bonam Corona Virus)
Police Vs. Mask (In Bengali: Police Bonam Mukhosh Pora Jonogon)
Private Vs. Public Society (In Bengali: Ruddho Shomaj Bonam K
Work Vs. Home (In Bengali: Office Bonam Poribar)
