We are very excited to announce Brahman Naman has been sold to Netflix where it will be a Netflix original and aired worldwide. The official release date is 7th July.
Brahman Naman made its World Premier in competition at the Sundance Film Festival 2016.
It is the 1980s and NAMAN is a clever, know-it-all teenager. Along with his friends, AJAY and RAMU, they are ‘The Three Musketeers’ who win every quiz competition, using their prize money to get drunk. They think they are super cool, but in reality, they are geeks.
When the gang succeed in getting into the All-India quiz final, they go on a chaotic train ride to Calcutta with BERNIE, their 60 year old anarchist quizzer mentor. On the journey, Naman falls hard for NAINA, a super smart and drop dead gorgeous quizzer, who is his superior in every way.
As we follow Naman on his quest for love and glory, it is his adventures along the way and the characters that fill them that make the story so special – outsmarting rival quiz teams, seeking their revenge when they can’t and plots to humiliate the school jocks – all culminate in Naman finding out what he is really made of.
BRAHMAN NAMAN is a true Indian teenage comedy. It is funny, touching and will be universal in its appeal. It is about the exhilaration and confusion of being 17 – the pleasure of being in a gang, breaking the rules, acting big, falling in love – coming of age.
