Tribune Web Desk
Chandigarh, October 7
Abundantia Entertainment announced that it has joined hands with Malayalam production company Friday Film House to remake the latter’s critically acclaimed and heart-warming Malayalam film ‘#Home’ in Hindi. ‘#Home’ is an emotional story of Oliver Twist, a technologically challenged father, who attempts to reconnect with his children in today’s digital world. The film evocatively captures the nuances of how social media affects relationships in our society. ‘#Home’ became an instant hit on its recent premiere on a streaming platform and boasts of a phenomenal 9.0 rating on IMDb. The two companies had earlier come together to remake the cult Malayalam film ‘Angamaly Diaries’ in Hindi which is presently in pre-production.
In a light-hearted and bittersweet narrative, ‘#Home’ effectively portrays the ever-increasing influence that digital devices have on our lives including an entire generation’s struggle with technology, modern relationships that are forged online and how we sometimes miss out on the real and extraordinary stories around us while we are focused online.
Abundantia Entertainment has notched up an impressive track-record of producing audience-focused, content that includes films like the recently released Vidya Balan-starrers ‘Sherni’ and ‘Shakuntala Devi’, ‘Airlift’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Chef’ and ‘Noor’ as well as original series like ‘Breathe and Breathe: Into The Shadows’. Along with upcoming films like Suresh Triveni’s ‘Jalsa’, the production house is also backing the Hindi remake of critically acclaimed, blockbuster ‘Soorarai Pottru’ with Suriya’s 2D Entertainment.
Friday Film House is amongst South India’s premiere content companies and is known for backing innovative stories and fresh talent while producing films that are truly reflective of the society we live in. Their diverse range of films such as ‘Angamaly Diaries’, ‘Sufiyum Sujatayum’, ‘Thrissur Pooram’, ‘June’, and ‘#Home’ echo this sentiment.
Vikram Malhotra, Founder and CEO of Abundantia Entertainment says, “We are delighted with the opportunity to recreate a beautiful and relevant film like ‘#Home’ that is such a topical yet entertaining statement on the world that we live in today. Abundantia Entertainment has always believed in combining meaningful story-telling with heart-warming entertainment and the Hindi remake of ‘#Home’ is another step in that journey. In Vijay and Friday Film House, we have collaborators that share our vision and sensibility and I am happy to join hands with them again after the in-development remake of ‘Angamaly Diaries’.”
Actor-producer and founder of Friday Film House, Vijay Babu says, “‘#Home’ talks about relationships and how they are evolving in the digital era. It is a universal subject and I am truly excited that this film will now be adapted for a wider, pan-India audience through the Hindi remake. Having collaborated with Abundantia Entertainment on the Hindi remake of ‘Angamaly Diaries’, we believe in their ability to take our film to newer heights and I am truly excited to partner with Vikram and team once again.”
