ZEE5 announces the premiere of Helmet, a social comedy. The film, starring Pranutan Bahl, Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee and Ashish Verma, is set to premiere on the streamer on September 3. Set in the heartland, Helmet highlights one of the most pertaining issues in our society - the resistance of people to buy condoms, albeit in a non-preachy and entertaining manner.
Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and actor Dino Morea’s DM Movies, Helmet is a quirky depiction of the entrenched taboos and diffidence surrounding the simple act of buying condoms in the nation’s heartland. The film is directed by Satramm Ramani with a screenplay and dialogues by Rohan Shankar.
The film is a hilarious exploration of small-town naivety and offers insight into a milieu where even accessing a birth-control device is wrought with multiple social challenges and psychological hang-ups. Watch the trailer here:
