UUNCHAI: World Digital Premiere of Amitabh Bachchan starrer slated for THIS date

Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Neena Gupta, Sarika, Danny Denzongpa and Parineeti Chopra, Uunchai will stream on ZEE5 Global from 6th January 2023

The world digital premiere of Uunchai – a heart-warming tale of friendship produced by Rajshri Productions – will happen on Zee5 Global on 6th January. The film is directed by Sooraj R Barjatya and marks his return to direction after 2015’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Uunchai tracks the journey of three aged friends, Amit (Amitabh Bachchan), Javed (Boman Irani) and Om (Anupam Kher) who decide to embark on a trek to the Everest Base Camp to fulfil the wish of their late friend Bhupen (Danny Dengzongpa), whose heart belonged in the Himalayas. They are joined on the trek by Shabina (Neena Gupta) who is Javed’s wife, Mala (Sarika) who happens to be the long-lost love of Bhupen and Shraddha (Parineeti Chopra) who is their tour guide. A simple trek to the Everest Base Camp turns out to be a personal, emotional, and spiritual experience as they battle their physical limitations and discover freedom.

Uunchai received good reviews at the box office and immediately connected with the audiences not just for the story line but also for the performances of the actors. With an emotionally driven script and powerful performances by all actors, the movie won hearts of audiences across all ages. And now, with its World Digital Premiere on ZEE5 Global on 6th January, it will be available on the OTT.

Director-producer, Sooraj R Barjatya says, Uunchai is a labour of 7 years of passion, hard-work and above all, love and after a successful run at the box-office, it will now stream on ZEE5 from 6th January, so I appeal to all our fans to start the new year with this film which is a heartfelt ode to friendship. Uunchai is sure to make the viewers chuckle and cry in equal parts and tug at their heartstrings as it will take the viewers through a rollercoaster of emotions. This film deserves all the love and I hope ZEE5 Global’s viewers across the 190+ countries, watch it with their loved ones and cherish this film.
