Uunchai to stream on ZEE5 from this date
Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani and Neena Gupta, Uunchai will stream on ZEE5 from 6th January 6, 2023
Sooraj Barjatiya's Uunchai, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Neena Gupta and others, will stream on ZEE5 from January 6, 2023.
Released in theatres in November, Uunchai tracks the journey of three elderly friends, Amit (Amitabh Bachchan), Javed (Boman Irani) and Om (Anupam Kher), who decide to trek to the Everest Base Camp to fulfill the wish of their late friend Bhupen (Danny Dengzongpa). They are joined on the trek by Shabina (Neena Gupta), Javed’s wife, Mala (Sarika), the long-lost love of Bhupen, and Shraddha (Parineeti Chopra), their tour guide.
The film received good to average reviews and was a moderate performer at the box-office. It marked Sooraj R Barjatya's return to direction after 2015’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India, said, “After a successful 2022, we at ZEE5 are excited to enter the new year with the World Digital Premiere of one of the best family entertainers of the year - Uunchai. A film by Sooraj Barjatya with a never-seen-before ensemble on-screen, Unnchai is a must watch film for people across ages but especially the elderly as it drives home the message of living life to the fullest and what better reminder than the start of a new year to dream big and live big.”
Sooraj R Barjatya said, “Uunchai is a labour of 7 years of passion, hard-work and above all, love and after a successful run at the box-office, it will now stream on ZEE5 from 6th January, so I appeal to all our fans to start the new year with this film which is a heartfelt ode to friendship. Uunchai is sure to make the viewers chuckle and cry in equal parts and tug at their heartstrings as it will take the viewers through a rollercoaster of emotions. This film deserves all the love and I hope ZEE5’s viewers across the 190+ countries, watch it with their loved ones and cherish this film.”
