‘Chhello Show’ will air in India on Netflix


”Chhello Show”, India’s official entry to the 95th Academy Awards, will be available to Netflix subscribers in India from Friday.

The Gujarati-language film, titled ”Last Film Show” in English, was released in Indian theaters on October 14.

The semi-biographical coming-of-age drama, written and directed by Pan Nalin, follows nine-year-old film buff Samay as he leaves no stone unturned in pursuit of his 35mm dreams, oblivious to the harrowing moments that are waiting for him.

Nalin said he is happy to collaborate with Netflix, which will help the film reach a wider audience.

”Last Film Show’ is a celebration of films, food, friends and family and now audiences across India can do just that from the comfort of their homes while watching it. “As a filmmaker, I dream of the film reaching as many people as possible, and now, thanks to Netflix, ‘Last Film Show’ is just a click away,” the filmmaker said in a statement.

Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur of Roy Kapur Films said the team is delighted that “Chhello Show” has found its way to Netflix India. The film will also be available to watch with a Hindi dub on the streamer.

“…we are sure that the magic and beauty of Nalin’s cinematic creation will delight Netflix audiences in India, just as she did with movie theater audiences in India and around the world,” said added Kapur.

”I am delighted that our film is available on Netflix India. They have a very engaged subscriber base in India, and it will be great for families to enjoy this movie from the comfort of their homes during the festive season,’ added producer Dheer Momaya, Jugaad Motion Pictures.

”Chhello Show” has been nominated and screened at prestigious film festivals around the world like Tribeca, the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival, among others. It also won Best Picture at the recent World Asian Film Festival in Los Angeles.

It is set to have a special screening at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
