​Prime Video today announced its newest series, Engga Hostel – the Tamil version of the hit college drama – Hostel Daze. The show is created by The Viral Fever (TVF) and directed by Sathish Chandrasekhar. The comedy-drama series features Sacchin Nachiappan, Avinaash Ramesh, Samyuktha Viswanathan, Saranya Ravichandran, Goutham Raj, and Dravid Selvam as the new batch of aspiring engineers in the hostel.

The series focuses on the lives of six engineering students who step into a hostel in Tamil Nadu. They enter their new life carrying only their dreams, and brimming with hope, and excitement but eventually leave with bonds forged in the dorms of friendship, romance, peep pressure, squabbles, and examinations in that very hostel. Engga Hostel captures their camaraderie, hilarious moments, excitement of romantic relationships, and the unnerving pressure of exams.The show will take some on a nostalgic​​ trip down the memory lane.

Shreyansh Pandey, Head, TVF Originals, said, “Engga Hostel encapsulates a humorous yet heartwarming journey of engineering students in a Tamil Nadu hostel, and how the hostel becomes their entire life, and everything revolves just around it and the fellow students in it. While the premise remains the same, this series is inherently rooted in local hostel culture but differs in treatment, parlance, and even emotions.”

Manish Menghani, Director, Content Licensing, Prime Video, adds, “Hostel Daze is one of the most loved, watched, and enjoyed, youthful comedy series on Prime Video, with a fanbase that has grown with every new season. Thus, extending the franchise in Tamil was a logical next step to super serve our customers.” The Hindi version of the show starred Nikhil Vijay, Adarsh Gourav, Ahsaaas Channa, Luv, Shubham Gaur, Harsha Chemudu, Ayushi Gupta to name a few. The Hindi version recently aired its third season.

Engga Hostel will stream on Prime Video in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide on Friday January 27, 2023.
