  • For Netflix, Upstarts is seventh Indian movie in 2019

Netflix is headed to Bangalore for its next Indian film, Upstarts, which follows three college graduates who are “determined to ride the burgeoning wave of startup companies” and “set out to change the world while making millions.” That makes it sound something like TVF's Pitchers meets HBO's Silicon Valley. Upstarts will be Netflix's seventh Indian movie this year, after the critically-acclaimed crime drama Soni in January, the Priyanka Chopra-produced Marathi drama Firebrand in February, the Madhuri Dixit-produced Marathi comedy-drama 15 August in March, the romantic drama Music Teacher in April, the Mithila Palkar, Abhay Deol-starrer comedy Chopsticks in May, and the romantic drama Jaoon Kahan Bata Ae Dil in August. From release date to cast, here's all you need to know about Upstarts.

Upstarts Netflix synopsis

“Upstarts is a bromance about three college graduates — Kapil (Painyuli), Yash (Rai) and Vinay (Kamal) — from small-town India, captivated by the startup mania sweeping the country. The three friends now want to set up their own company that will change the world, while making them pots of money, of course. As they enter the rollercoaster startup ecosystem of big dreams, big money, and bigger sharks, they face the biggest question: What has greater value, their dreams or their friendship?”

The trailer also hints at a bit of comedy and bromance.
