MUMBAI— ZEE5, India’s largest and most comprehensive digital entertainment platform for language content, recently launched “Table No 5.” Interestingly, the quirky series that revolves (literally!) around a table at a restaurant has been one of the most popular series on the platform.
Written by “OMG - Oh My God!” fame Bhavesh Mandalia, “Table No 5” is a thriller that takes you down a different storyline in each episode and boasts of versatile actors such as Swanand Kirkire, Namit Das and Pitobash Tripathy.
“Table No 5”– the protagonist of the series – is witness to six seemingly harmless conversations over the episodes. The unexpected characters, their bizarre situations and their inexplicable endings leave the viewer baffled at the end of each series.
Swanand Kirkire opined, “This is a one-of-a-kind concept, and I have completely enjoyed playing a gray character. The evolved audience enjoys the bizarre, and that is exactly what ‘Table No 5’ offers.”
Das plays a magician avatar, Kirkire the “chosen one” and Tripathy a suicide bomber among many more interesting characters. The series is online on ZEE5 to get a daily dose of thrills and chills.
Speaking about its success, Archana Anand, chief business officer- ZEE5 Global (India & International), said, “‘Table No 5’ is our foray into the thriller genre. We believe this show has immense mass appeal owing to the bizarre circumstances with a twist at the end, all happening around a table. We are committed to bring only the most captivating, curated content for our subscribers at all instances, providing them with a superlative storytelling experience.”
ZEE5 has a bouquet of original content lined up across six different languages and featuring some of the biggest and most exciting faces from the world of Indian entertainment. The platform aims to have a catalog of 90+ original shows by the end of March 2019.
