Viu is one of the foremost streaming platforms to make it big in India. The company is now going through the next step with High Jack, a feature film that will first be released in theatres and then will be available exclusively on the Viu Channel. The series features Sumeet Vyas, Sonnalli Seygall, RJ Mantra, Kumud Mishra, Amey Wagh and Nipin Dharmadikari.
The High Jack star cast itself is quite interesting. Sumeet Vyas is the latest poster boy of quirky, interesting digital content. Sonalli Seygall has earlier worked in a web series, and it is interesting to see young actors making full use of the digital platforms available. Kumud Mishra is one of the few mainstream actors who gave streaming legitimacy to streaming entertainment when the boom began sometime last year.
High Jack is about a group of first time hijackers who go through some hilarious scenarios and situations in a screwball comedy. High Jack will hit theatres on 20th April.
In a media interaction, Vishal Maheshwari, Country Head, Viu India, said that Viu is focused on innovating and providing an enriched experience for Viu-ers. He said that High Jack was a great collaboration for them, as Phantom Films is known for exceptional audience experiences.
Madhu Mantena, Producer for Phantom Films said that their collaboration with Viu gives them great insight into the content watching mindsent of online audience and that’s what made them partner with High Jack.
