When four young and free-spirited musicians, a small-town couple, and their young daughter, end up on a 24-hour journey in one camper van, an eye-opening encounter ensues – Jyothi Venkatesh
Shaadisthan, releasing today on 11th June on Disney+ Hotstar VIP follows the story of an unforgettable journey from Mumbai to a small town in Rajasthan which brings to light how unconventionality doesn’t equate to being morally wrong. Here are the reasons why you must watch Shaadisthan only on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Shaadisthan features an ensemble cast of talented artists. Kirti Kulhari portrays the role of Sasha – an unapologetic young woman who is the band’s lead vocalist – in the movie also starring actors Medha Shankar and Nivedita Bhattacharya among others.
What’s interesting is that the actors portraying the role of the other three band members are actually real-life musicians, namely Shenpenn Khymsar, Apurv Dogra and Ajay Jayanthi, who are featuring in movies for the first time ever. How’s that for a multi-talented cast!
Unforgettable Road Trip!
A joyful movie with an unconventional storyline, Shaadisthan showcases how an 18-year-old Arshi finds herself caught between her parents’ wishes while wanting to live life on her terms.
Amidst the family chaos, Arshi and her parents Sanjay and Kamla Sharma take a road trip to remember with four musicians – Freddie, Imaad, Sasha and Jigme and are exposed to a whole new way of living.
With two generations with opposing beliefs coming together, this 24-hour drive has the potential to turn into something really unexpected!
Not just a complete family entertainer, Shaadisthan will also leave audiences thinking about their own perceptions of traditions and the modern world.
The movie depicts the meeting of two very different ideologies – one representing freedom of choice and the other guarding the beauty of tradition.
By this, it holds a mirror to society and showcases how years of conditioning convinces many people that life can only be black and white with no shades of gray.
