‘Ghoomer’, the inspiring sporty storyline with a stellar cast of Shabana Azmi, Abhishek Bachchan, Saiyami Kher, Angad Bedi and a special appearance by none other than Amitabh Bachchan, is set for its streaming outing after a critically acclaimed cinematic release.
The film helmed by R. Balki is all set to make an indelible mark via its OTT release this week exclusively on ZEE5 Global. Produced by Hope Film Makers and Saraswati Entertainment, Ghoomer is an emotional story with multiple layers.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said: “Outstanding stories of might and perseverance hold the power to unite viewers across the globe. With the digital premiere of the critically acclaimed film ‘Ghoomer’ on ZEE5, we hope to inspire viewers across the globe as the film’s remarkable story highlights the unbreakable human spirit.
“The title further expands our robust blockbuster movies library and is sure to resonate deeply with viewers worldwide.”
In ‘Ghoomer,’ Saiyami Kher plays Anina Dixit, a talented cricketer whose dreams are shattered by a tragic accident leading to the loss of her right arm. Paddy (played by Abhishek Bachchan), a former test cricketer, becomes her coach and helps her become the first-ever one-armed spinner, propelling her to play for the Indian National Team. The coach gives her new hope, trains her with unconventional techniques and invents a ‘Ghoomer’ bowling style to turn her fate around. ‘Ghoomer’ shows how people can win over tough times and get another shot at success beating all odds.
Director R. Balki said: “Ghoomer on ZEE5 Global will finally take the film to the widest possible audience the film deserves. Loved unanimously by those who have seen it in its limited release in the theatres, this magical story of a one-armed girl who is given a new lease of life by a man who believed in the impossible and changed the rules of the game, can atleast be witnessed by every home around the globe. I am thrilled now ‘Ghoomer’ will finally reach the hearts of millions.”
