Ok Computer trailer out: Man, Machine and Mausi in sci-fi comedy series
Set in the year 2031, the six-episode series concerns a murder investigation involving a self-driving taxi
Disney+ Hostar has released the trailer of Ok Computer, a sci-fi comedy series directed by Pooja Shetty and Neil Pagedar.
Set in the year 2031, the six-episode series concerns a murder investigation involving a self-driving taxi. A police inspector (Vijay Varma) wants to nab a suspect for an accident. He tracks down Ajeeb, an android with artificial intelligence (AI), but is questioned by Laksmi (Radhika Apte), who works for the ethical treatment of robots.
Ok Computer highlights the man-vs-technology debate in space-age India. The series is produced and co-written by Anand Gandhi. It also features Rasika Dugal, Jackie Shroff and others.
Speaking about the series, Anand Gandhi said, “Here’s a thought worth chewing on: We are closer to 2030 than we are to 2010. Ok Computer is an attempt to imagine a world of our near-future together, and laugh out loud while we are at it. The show asks one of the biggest questions of this century - if AI commits a crime, who should be culpable? It asks this question with madcap humour, zany characters, and a rollercoaster epic story. It's been my privilege to offer unprecedented stories to Indian audiences. Ok Computer, like my previous work, is a small step in a completely new direction. I hope it opens up the floodgates for science fiction entertainment in India.”
