This Romantic drama narrative revolves around Anamika who is a quintessential Indian housewife and an efficient employee at a cafe. However, she is deprived of love from her husband due to his ever-irritated behaviour. But a guy comes along and what happens next will turn the narrative of the story.
‘Rules of the Game’ : Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, this thriller’s narrative revolves around a couple in their thirties who decide to spice things up in their marriage by indulging in role-play. But their relationship finally breaks instead of getting ignited. The film has a lead star cast of Aahana Kumra, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and Anindita Bose.

‘Diagnosis of Love’: The crime thriller revolves around a blooming love story between a surgeon and a patient. Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, the film has a star cast of Raima Sen, Mahesh Manjrekar, Rannvijay Singh, and Vaibhav Tatwawaadi. The film is all set to release on 24th September 2020.
Talking about this project director Pradeep Sarkar expresses, “Arranged Marriage” exposes the flaws in this age old tradition of Indian matchmaking where love and relationships are sacrificed for superstition and rigid family beliefs that no longer serve us. It is a modern day take on a Love Story. I’m glad the film is getting a global release with Zee5 giving it the voice and visibility it deserves. Looking forward to the audience response.
On the other hand, director Priyadarshan reveals, “Anamika is a quintessential housewife in her late 30s, but her love life is a bit dry with negligible attention from her husband. This slice of life romantic drama is an everyday story of a lot of middle-aged women wanting a bit of love and Anamika is their mascot. The film has a relatability factor which I hope the audience will connect with. Desire will take centre stage and the story is a visual representation of it and I hope the audience enjoys watching it. Premiering 9th September on ZEE5.”
“The film Rules of the Game is about a couple in their 30s wanting to add a bit of spice in their relationship. I believe it’s a constant struggle in any monogamous relationship to keep the romance quotient high. I am sure many of you in this generation will relate to the film in some form or the other. The millennials aren’t foreign to the art of role play, but what if it takes a wrong turn? It’s a fun, thrilling ride for the audience and I can’t wait for the premiere on ZEE5,” added director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.
Director Mahesh Manjrekar says, “Diagnosis Of Love is a crime thriller that revolves around a blooming love story between a surgeon and a colleague. People can expect drama, romance and action. Every love story is incomplete without a villain and Diagnosis Of Love is a complete package. Looking forward to the release on ZEE5.”
‘Forbidden Love’, an array of 4 feature films premiering 9th & 24th September on ZEE5
