Mumbai, 10th August 2023: WATCHO - one of India's fastest-growing OTT platforms, is set to captivate audiences with the release of its latest original series, 'Aarambh: A Riveting Tale of Family, Love, Loss, and Tradition.' The series explores the depths of familial ties, sustaining traditions, and a perilous struggle against a fraudulent system. 'Aarambh' is directed by Shaurya Singh and is produced by Silver Rain Pictures & MAG Entertainment.
'Aarambh' narrates the compelling story of Shrikant Sharma, who resides in the United States with his wife Smita, eagerly awaiting the arrival of their first child. Meanwhile, Shrikant's father, Uday Shankar Sharma, leads a peaceful life in Lal Nagar, a serene suburban area near Ranchi, with his younger son’s family. However, fate takes a cruel turn when Uday Shankar Sharma tragically passes away due to a sudden heart attack. Srikant rushes back to India to perform the last rites of his beloved father. Upon reaching India, Shrikant discovers a startling truth - his father's body has been seemingly donated to the hospital for medical studies while tricking his family into giving consent, but the truth was far more disturbing.
He discovers that a ward boy resorted to unscrupulous means and sold dead bodies to organ trafficking rings. Will Shrikant be able to get justice and complete the last rituals of his father or will he invite trouble for himself by getting involved with extremely dangerous people?
The star-spangled ensemble of the web series brings the twisted characters to life featuring actors like Amit Gaur, Karan Thakur, Dipali Sharma, and Manish Khanna among others.
