Even though more than 70 percent of India reads non-English languages, not many non-English media professionals make it big. The new MX Original Series, Thinkistan, takes this concept – and that too from a burgeoning, growing India, the India of 1995.

Season 1 of this 11 episodic series follows the graphs of two contrasting characters slugging it out in this seductive, mad world of advertising. Amit (essayed by Naveen Kasturia) is a Hindi speaking junior copy writerwho comes from Bhopal while English trainee copywriter Hema (Played by Shravan Reddy) is a suave, well-read metropolitan. Amit and Hema represent a divide caused by language and social class that is seen in India, till date. But when will we realize that ideas have no language and the biggest ideas are the ones that unite us instead of dividing us?
