The direct-to-digital Zee5 movie Atithi Bhooto Bhava (2022) starring Jackie Shroff, Pratik Gandhi, Sharmin Segal is a story of a man who realizes how his past and future connects in the present.
Directed by Hardik Gajjar, the romantic comedy also stars Divinaa Thackur, Simran Sharmaand, and Prabhjyot Singh.
The trailer shows Srikant Shirodkar (Pratik Gandhi), a stand-up comedian who takes his relationships with his live-in girlfriend Netra Bannerjee (Sharmin Segal) for granted. One night, while he is drunk, Srikant meets a ghost named Makhan Singh (Jackie Shroff).
Singh asks Srikant to fulfil a promise made by him. A confused Srikant comes to a realization that he has been reincarnated as Makhan’s grandfather Darji. While a love story in the past remains unfulfilled, Srikant has to fix his relationship with Netra as well.
In a statement, Shroff shared, “I have portrayed enormous characters, but Makhan Singh in Atithi Bhooto Bhava was something different. Portraying a ghost was very exciting and thought it would be captivating for the audience to see me in this role as well. There are many instances and scenes that the audience will connect with. It’s a beautiful romantic movie! I am hoping that the audience enjoys it as much as we (Partik, Sharmin and I) enjoyed making it.”
Lead actor Gandhi added, “Atithi Bhooto Bhava is an entertaining film and full of emotions. I was inclined towards the script because it had a different narrative. In times when there are thrillers and murder mysteries, Atithi Bhooto Bhava is a light-hearted romantic musical film which will connect with the audiences and make them believe in love again.”
His co-star Segal, commented how love is a very complex emotion in the film. She said, “I strongly believe that love should be expressed when felt and that’s one of the main messages of this film. My character Netra craves for attention, affection, from Srikant which he is unable to give her until he realises the value of love. The movie showcases a beautiful journey of two love stories and Jackie sir’s character helps our characters understand how rare it is to find love and how important it is to appreciate it.”
Director Gajjar stated, “Atithi Bhooto Bhava is really close to my heart, but at the same time it's also an important film. In the times when there are countless platforms to express your views, we are finding it difficult to express our feelings. That feeling of true love is so pure, but sometimes why do we undermine the importance of expressing it? This film focusses on the same thing and also highlights that the power of love can transcend beyond life and death.”
Presented by Dr Jayantilal Gada of PEN Studios, Atithi Bhooto Bhava is due to be streamed on Zee5 on 23 September.
