Mumbai - 01 May 2021 21:27 IST
Vitthal has been adept at cards from a young age. He sees the number three as the three of hearts, and when he grows up, he has no equal at the card table in his village. But when he decides to up the ante, the stakes suddenly feel uncomfortably high.
Scam 1992 (2020) star Pratik Gandhi plays the title character, a cardsharp who has the smarts. Vitthal may be the king of the pond, but in the ocean, he has to go against a strong current.
At one point, he gives up gambling, only to be sucked back in again. When Vitthal is asked about the difference between a jugari (gambler) and khiladi (player), he replies, “Jugari naseeb thi rammech and khiladi magach thi [A gambler uses his luck to play, while a player uses his mind]."
The original web-series is based on the short story of the same name by Mukesh Sojitra. The show features Ragi Jani, Prashant Barot, Prem Gadhavi, Brindra Trivedi, Jagjeetsinh Vadher and National award-winner Shraddha Dangar in special appearance.
Directed by Abhishek Jain, Vitthal Teedi is due to be streamed on the Oho Gujarati platform from 7 May. Check out the trailer below and let us know if you are keen to watch the series.
