Helmet has already created a buzz among the audience ahead of its release. The movie is helmed by Satram Ramani and stars Aparshakti Khurana and Ashish Verma in titular roles. The movie is titled Helmet as most of the local Indians tend to use that word for condoms. The movie is slated for a September 3 release on Zee5.
The trailer of the film was released on August 20 and it is a social comedy. The movie tells how people in India are hesitant to buy condoms as they consider it to be a taboo. From the trailer, it seems like they have managed to highlight the issue in a funny way. The screenplay and dialogues are penned by Rohan Shankar.
The film is a hilarious comedy that explores small town naivety and offers rare insight into the parts of India where even discussing birth control goes against one’s beliefs and values. The film showcases multiple social challenges and psychological hang-ups.
Manish Kalra, CEO of Zee5 India, says that they are here to present films like Helmet which are not just entertaining but also focus on socially relevant issues. Through the journey of the protagonists, Helmet highlights the problem our country is facing and gives an apt solution to it in a unique and interesting manner. He is optimistic that the film will entertain audiences and raise awareness at the same time.
