Streaming platform Zee5 Global is gearing up for the digital premiere of “Bastar: The Naxal Story,” a hard-hitting crime drama produced by Sunshine Pictures Pvt Ltd. The intense and thought-provoking narrative comes after the success of “The Kerala Story.” It is helmed by the core team of director Sudipto Sen, producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah, Sunshine Productions, and lead actor Adah Sharma. The film will be available on the streaming platform in Hindi and Telugu from May 17.

“Bastar” is inspired by true events and centers on the Naxal insurgency in Chhattisgarh and the extraordinary efforts of a single police officer to quell the threat. Along with Adah Sharma, the movie stars Indira Tiwari, Vijay Krishna, Shilpa Shukla, Yashpal Sharma, Subrat Dutta, and Raima Sen in prominent roles.

Drawing inspiration from actual events, the film follows the journey of a dedicated police officer who goes above and beyond to combat the Naxal insurgency in Chhattisgarh. “With intense moments that will shake you to the core, ‘Bastar’ offers an unflinching look at the complexities of this issue,” said a ZEE5 Global press release. 

According to Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer at ZEE5 Global, “Bastar” is “a powerful film that tackles the complexities of the Naxal insurgency, offering a raw and thought-provoking exploration of a sensitive topic,” and “adds a powerful global narrative to our ever-expanding entertainment landscape.”

Producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah said the “Bastar” team “wanted to shed light on the Naxal insurgency in Chhattisgarh, an issue that has impacted countless lives.” He said the film “talks about the bravery of those who have fought against this threat,” and hopes “it serves as a reminder of the importance of addressing such critical societal issues..” Noting that “exploring the subject was a risky terrain,” he is hopeful that “viewers appreciate our efforts in bringing this powerful story to the forefront.”

Director Sudipto Sen recollects “directing “Bastar’ was a challenging yet rewarding experience,” as they “aimed to present a very realistic side of the Naxal conflict, drawing inspiration from real-life events and characters.” He lauded Sharma for “a fabulous job once again.” He further commented on how “making the film was very important” for him. “It is something I have felt, lived, and understood since my childhood,” Sen said. “While the subject matter is intense, we hope this film encourages dialogue and understanding about this terrifying issue. I am looking forward to the film’s digital premiere on ZEE5 Global and taking this lesser-known story to the masses.”
