Producer Ronnie Screwvala’s work etches a special league with The Lunchbox and The Occurring amongst others. Teaming up with Richie Mehta, who as a creator scaled nice heights by profitable Worldwide Emmy for Delhi Crime collection. The duo is bound to lift the bar unfathomably excessive.
Produced by RSVP and Ramesh Krishnamoorthy’s International One Studios, the collection relies on Dominique Lapierre and Javier Moro’s 1997 ebook, “Five Past Midnight in Bhopal: The Epic Story of the World’s Deadliest Industrial Disaster,” detailing the catastrophe in 1984.
“The authors have done such a precise and fascinating job of mapping out the human story which creates a thread all through this disaster and is told in an impartial manner, which is very important to me as a storyteller to step back and allow the viewer to fill in that judgment, and in the case of something like this very harsh judgment, of course,” shares Richie Mehta.
Including additional, he stated, “I think the fact that it happened in the 1980s, it is starting to evaporate from the collective consciousness of young people. Many people don’t even know about it or they hear rumours of it in India and certainly internationally. And so I feel like it’s really important to get it out there in an impartial and extremely well-researched manner, which the authors have done.”
Upon the announcement of the collection, Screwvala had referenced Chernobyl, a gold normal for collection about man-made disasters. He stated, “We’ve been looking at storytelling in very many different ways. I believe this for global audiences and not just Indian audiences overall more and more, especially because of OTT platforms, the mixture and the combination of great storytelling with a sense of realism and moving towards more inspired by true events based on a true story, actually has a lot more gravitas.”
Whereas no broadcasting associate has but hopped on board, Screwvala stated, “We want to be doing the development on our own because I think if you get into too much consensus view right in the beginning, then it becomes a bit of a challenge. We’re quite happy that we want to develop this completely on our own, go with our own conviction and go to somebody who buys in into our vision rather than being a bit of a mishmash of everyone. Because the minute you get into development funding then it becomes just too many people in the room.”
A precious addition to a rock-solid crew of RSVP and International One Studios is Richie Mehta. The collection based mostly on the ebook that has been round since 1997 might be its imprint on display. The collection, which is prone to include six to eight one-hour episodes, is in growth and can start manufacturing in early 2022. RSVP’s Sanaya Irani Zohrabi, Krishnamoorthy, and Mehta will function govt producers. Shaun Mehta (“Amal”) is co-writing.
