ATM is a web show with many firsts. One of the biggest producers in Telugu cinema, Dil Raju, is all set to foray into the digital space. Another big name, director Harish Shankar has written the story and is also the showrunner for the project. This is more or less a comeback for its screenplay writer and director Chandramohan, who earlier helmed Sharwanand’s action-comedy Radha.
The show has an exciting bunch of young actors and veterans. Prudhvi Raj, Subbaraju, Divyavani, Shafi are the more familiar faces in the show that also stars Bigg Boss Telugu fame VJ Sunny, Divi Vadthya, Roiel Shree, Harshini, Krishna Burugula and others in key roles. Produced by Harshith Reddy and Hanshitha under Dil Raju Productions, ATM will premiere on the leading OTT platform ZEE5 from January 20.
The trailer, launched a few days ago, confirms a story revolving around a bunch of thieves, a corrupt cop and a manipulative politician. The thieves are after a sum of Rs 25 crore from their next robbery and the politician needs that money to take charge of his career, while the cop looks to outsmart them. What are they all upto? The line between good and bad gets blurred in this heist thriller.
Krishna Shankar Chinta is the co-director for the show which has music by Prashanth R Vihari. Harish Shankar is credited as the creator as well for the project edited by Aswin S. Monic Kumar G is the cinematographer and Srinivas Punna is the art director respectively. Pushpa Bhaskar is the casting director. Meher Kilaru, the CEO, is also part of the crew.
ZEE5 has had an eventful 2022 with a handful of releases like Recce, Maa Neella Tank, Aha Naa Pellanta, Hello World and Loser 2, to name a few. It’ll be interesting to see how a mainstream filmmaker like Harish Shankar, a successful producer like Dil Raju would fare in the digital medium.
