Bambai Meri Jaan" Trailer Unleashed

Prime Video’s Latest Offering: A Gritty Tale of Crime and Redemption


In a cinematic revelation that’s set to redefine the Indian entertainment landscape, Prime Video, the nation’s beloved streaming platform, has pulled back the curtain on the thrilling trailer of their upcoming Amazon Original series, “Bambai Meri Jaan.” This gritty and suspenseful crime thriller is produced by the dynamic trio of Ritesh Sidhwani, Kassim Jagmagia, and Farhan Akhtar, featuring a captivating narrative penned by S. Hussain Zaidi. Helmed by the visionary duo Rensil D’Silva and Shujaat Saudagar, this series boasts a star-studded ensemble cast, including Kay Kay Menon, Avinash Tiwary, Kritika Kamra, Nivedita Bhattacharya, and Amyra Dastur. Buckle up, because the 10-part Hindi Original series is all set to make its exclusive debut on Prime Video in India and across 240 countries and territories on September 14th, in multiple Indian languages including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and English. International audiences can also indulge in this thrilling saga as it’s available in languages like French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Polish, Latin Spanish, Castilian Spanish, Arabic, and Turkish. Subtitles in numerous foreign languages, including Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Korean, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Thai, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese, make “Bambai Meri Jaan” accessible to a global audience.


The trailer unfurls with a powerful declaration: “Jab imaandari bhuk se takraati hai to hamesha haarti hai. Main imaandar tha, par Dara bhooka tha.” (“When honesty confronts hunger, it always loses. I was honest, but Dara was hungry.”) This poignant narration sets the stage for an adrenaline-fueled journey through the gritty and immersive streets of 1970s Bambai (Mumbai). In this tumultuous era, gang wars, crime, and treachery were the order of the day. “Bambai Meri Jaan” crafts an enthralling narrative of an honest cop who watches helplessly as his son is drawn into a life of crime to escape the clutches of poverty and hardship. The trailer offers a glimpse into the heart-wrenching pain a father experiences as his family is torn apart by a whirlwind of lost morals, insatiable greed, and rampant corruption.


Kay Kay Menon, who essays the role of Ismail Kadri, a character with layers of complexity, shares his insights: “My character Ismail Kadri is multi-layered and complex. He is an honest cop and a doting father who isn’t perfect. On one hand, he is deeply committed to cleaning the city of Bambai of all crime, on the other, to save his family, he is forced to become a pawn to the city’s crime syndicate. Even as Ismail fights against all odds not to give in to the evil surrounding him, he sees his own flesh and blood rising as the city’s new gang lord. Shujaat and Rensil’s vision for this character was so clear and precise that it was easy for me to essay this role. Thank you, Prime Video and Excel Entertainment, Rensil and Shujaat, for making me a part of such a gut-wrenching story.”


Avinash Tiwary, who brings to life the character of Dara Kadri, adds, “When I first read the script and about my character, Dara Kadri, I was awestruck and hesitant at the same time. The character I play in Bambai Meri Jaan is something that very few actors get an opportunity to sink their teeth into, this early in their career. The way I saw it, there are villains and then there is Dara, a dynamic young man who believes that honest hard work won’t get you money and power. From nothing (hunger) to something (provider for the family and his people) to everything (power), bhook is an integral part of his journey. To become someone everyone bows down to, one who is feared and revered in equal measures, he has to turn into a cold-blooded monster. As a director, Shujaat’s creativity, attention to detail, and his ability to inspire and motivate each one of us to give our best, really enabled me to bring Dara’s character to life the way he and Rensil had envisioned while writing the script. I am looking forward to reactions from viewers from India and around the world.”

This thrilling journey into the heart of Mumbai’s underbelly is primed to be the talk of the town. Stay tuned for the release of “Bambai Meri Jaan” on September 14th, as it promises to be an unforgettable rollercoaster ride through crime, redemption, and the unbreakable bonds of family.
