Akoori finally finds a home at Zee5 and audiences can finally see the fine actor that Darshan Zariwala is. The web series pits him as an aging Parsi gentleman, who has two issues in life – one his trying to bring together his broken family and secondly, he is trying to save his lodge from his younger brother.
The trailer shows a warm, bittersweet experience and it is the performances that are at the heart of the web series. Akoori stars Darshan Zariwala, Lillete Dubey, Shadam Kamal, Zoa Morani, Sohrab Sunny, Adi Irani and Harsh Nagar. Web series and content about Parsi households are rare to come by, and Darshan Zariwala’s role as a cussing, slightly politically incorrect person comes as a fresh change for audiences are tired watching old men either bed ridden or having nothing to do in the script.
There’s no date set for the launch of the series as yet. Watch the trailer here:
