After a highly successful first season, Amazon Prime Video launched the trailer for the second season of Prime Exclusive Series Laakhon Mein Ek. With a fresh storyline and gripping new characters in the second season, Laakhon Mein Ek, produced by Only Much Louder (OML), will be the first Indian Series for Prime Video in an anthology format. Created by ace comedian Biswa Kalyan Rath, the second season of Laakhon Mein Ek, is set to release on April 12 2019, across 200 countries and territories only on Amazon Prime Video.
Biswa Kalyan Rath, Creator, said, “Laakhon Mein EK Season 1 saw overwhelming love from audiences across the country. It was a deeply personal story and found great resonance with viewers. With Season 2, the attempt is again to tell the story from the perspective of an unlikely hero, while taking a deep, hard look at the state of health-care facilities in rural India. Laakhon Mein Ek Season 2, features Dr Shreya (played by Shweta Tripathi) in the lead, and follows her journey to do the right thing despite indomitable odds. Again, a relatable premise, a powerful yet authentic character, set in a world that we aren’t very familiar with. It has been a labor of love and I hope audiences enjoy it.”
Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “The first season of Laakhon Mein Ek was much loved by audiences across India and offered a nuanced yet relatable story. Building on the central theme of the show, ‘Laakhon Mein Ek’, quite literally ‘one in a million’, Season 2 tells the story Dr. Shreya, played by Shweta Tripathi, and documents one individual’s courage, resilience, and herculean fight against a corrupt system to make a difference. Interestingly, courage has been intuitively linked to the male gender in our country. Laakhon Mein Ek Season 2 questions this narrative and showcases Dr Shreya as a fierce, fearless and most importantly courageous woman. After Four More Shots Please!, Homecoming, The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, we continue to bring women centric stories, that question gender norms. We are certain that the audiences will enjoy the new season with this fresh narrative. We are also excited to strengthen our association with Biswa Kalyan Rath who has been a part of the Prime Video family since the beginning of our journey in India.”
Laakhon Mein Ek is a series that showcases the extraordinary stories of ordinary people defying odds, fighting corrupt systems to become the change that is required in the system. In Laakhon Mein Ek Season 2, viewers will get to see the story of Dr. Shreya, played by Shweta Tripathi, who has been posted in Sitlapur village to conduct a cataract camp. The villagers, however, are not the biggest believers in Government healthcare as the supplies aren’t separate from the politics, and the staff isn’t the dream team one would desire. Dr. Shreya keeps fighting the system, and faces indomitable odds, but the question remains whether she will change the system or if the system will change her. Created by Biswa Kalyan Rath, Prime Exclusive Series Laakhon Mein Ek Season 2 is written by Biswa Kalyan Rath, Abhishek Sengupta and Hussain Haidry stars Shweta Tripathi, in the lead.
