MUMBAI: Over the top (OTT) platform ZEE5 is all set to launch its Marathi original show ‘Hutatma’, a historical drama, on 1st May, which is also celebrated as Maharashtra Day. The seven-episode web series is based on the 1950’s Samyukta Maharashtra Movement for the demand of a Marathi speaking state in Independent India.

It delves into the lives of common people and depicts their struggles, sacrifices, aspirations, and betrayal amidst the difficult times of a powerful battle. As a tribute to the movement, Hutatma premieres on Maharashtra Day.

Directed by award-winning film-maker, Jayprad Desai, Hutatma features an ensemble cast starring Anjali Patil, Vaibhav Tatwawaadi, Abhay Mahajan, Sachin Khedekar, Ashwini Kalsekar, Lokesh Gupte, Mohan Agashe, Ravindra Mankani, Chhaya Kadam, Vikram Gokhale, Anand Ingle, Manoj Kolhatkar and Arif Zakaria.

Hutatma is an adaptation of Meena Deshpande’s novel and revolves around the story of a young girl named Vidyut, who revolts to avenge her father’s untimely death. The story artistically renders an amalgamation of fictional characters and real historical figures like Acharya Atre, Shripad Amrut Dange, S M Joshi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Morarji Desai, Yashwantrao Chavan, and Senapati Bapat to name a few.

Commenting on the announcement, ZEE5 India Business Head Manish Aggarwal said, “Hutatma is the only show on the Samyukta Maharashtra Movement, which was a widespread movement for the demand of a Marathi speaking state in independent India. It is an important story to bring alive as many youths are unaware of the struggle and the sacrifices made behind it. We take pride in announcing the show on a medium that reverberates among today’s audience in a big way.”

ZEE5 India Programming Head Aparna Acharekar said, “At ZEE5, we are constantly working towards presenting unexplored stories to our audiences and Hutatma is another step in that direction. Meena Deshpande’s novel has lent itself beautifully to the screenplay of the show and Jayprad Desai has done justice to the narrative. We have the finest industry talent and an interesting mix who are a part of the show. The trailer has already created a lot of interest and we are sure it will be received well by the viewers.”
