Popular TV series 'Khichdi' now made into film
In a significant development which is a first in the Indian entertainment space, a very popular television series is serving as an inspiration for a film backed by an international studio. Fox Star Studios that brought Slumdog Millionaire and My Name Is Khan to audiences in India is presenting the feature film which takes off from the popular sitcom Khichdi. Bringing Hollywood practices to India where popular and successful television shows like Mr. Bean, Batman, Simpsons, Mission Impossible, Star Wars and Sex and the City get made into films regularly, this would be the first time in India that a series will migrate onto the cinema platform. Given the challenge that Bollywood has to create new content - this could be a start of a new trend!
The film titled Khichdi - The Movie produced by Hats Off Productions, written and directed by Aatish Kapadia is an all out fun and crazy ride and is best described as "Comedy Family ki Family Comedy". The film is freshly written and retains the humour and the eccentricities of the much loved characters that have made close to 50 million people laugh over the last 7 years whilst taking an updated view of today's times.
As for the show, Khichdi is an immensely popular sitcom series that originated on Star Plus in 2002. The unique flavour of the comedy and the characters made the series very popular among television audiences.
Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star Studios India said "We are very excited about the research feedback from the audiences that have seen Khichdi - The Movie. Audiences loved the 'saaf suthri comedy' and found it to be funnier than most recent comedy films. Audiences are looking for new experiences and lets face it, there are very few good clean comedy films that audiences can go and watch with the entire family ....that's the promise of Khichdi-The Movie."
In its new avatar, Khichdi-The Movie goes on a roller coaster ride where the ridiculous tasks that the Parekh family attempts to fulfil takes them through a tsunami of hilarious situations.
Khichdi -The Movie will be coming out on October 1....being a human...
