Amazon Prime Video has announced a light-hearted romantic comedy series titled Four More Shots Please!, adding to the rapidly increasing digital offerings in the Indian market. The series will revolve around four urban young women and explore their lives as they represent the voice of a new generation who lives and loves on their own terms. Four More Shots Please! will tend to target mostly youth of the country and form a formidable bond with them with the story of lead characters revolving around their relationships, work-life conflicts, ambitions and anxieties as they live, love and deal with being women in the India of 2018. The series is being produced by Pritish Nandy Communications with Anu Menon at the helm. Four More Shots Please! is set to stream on your tv screens on 25th January 2019.
Talking about the series Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video, India added that, “We are thrilled to present Four More Shots Please!, a female-centric story of four urban Indian women, their life choices, their crises, romance, high points, helmed by their rock-solid, life-saving friendship. We have worked with a strong, female-led task force – right from the cast to the crew. Four More Shots Please! reflects the voices of the generation of Indian women who are independent in mind, body and thought. It’s a story that hasn’t been told yet in India and we’re glad to have the perfect partners in Pritish Nandy Communications bringing this series to fruition. Rangita Pritish Nandy’s vision and Anu Menon’s direction has truly transformed the story into a must watch series that is very entertaining and relatable to all our customers.”
Further, Pritish Nandy, Chairman, Pritish Nandy Communications added that “Four More Shots Please! is our tribute to our times. It’s about a generation of young women, brave and vulnerable, independent and spirited, growing up in South Bombay and speaking the language of our times, living the life they yearn to live with courage, conviction and confidence. Four friends who share in each other’s joys and griefs, successes and occasional losses with love, fortitude and delight. It’s a funny, exciting, magical show full of wit, humour and insight into a generation that refuses to take itself for granted. Rangita, creator of the show and Anu, director for the first season, take you on a roller coaster ride through the lives, loves and ambitions of these four women who choose to take the road less travelled by. And yes, there are some great guys too on the show. They will take your breath away for they are today’s New Age men. So no, it’s not just a show about women. It’s all about us and our wonderful times. It’s about liberation from the past.”
Written by Devika Bhagat, with dialogues by Ishita Moitra, Four More Shots Please! revolves around the lives of four very different women each fighting their own individual battles and tackling life as it comes. Based in the southern tip of Mumbai, the city that never sleeps, these four friends get together every couple of days to binge talk and get smash drunk at their favourite garage bar, ‘Truck’. It’s the magic of pure, unadulterated and yet sometimes flawed, friendship. Four More Shots Please! is the urban, millennial Indian woman’s gaze, a slice-of-life, brutally realistic portrait of what it is like to be in a country caught in a constant battle between the traditional and modern, to be a thinking woman, to be free in a country caught up in chains and to be honest in a country that thrives on hypocrisy.
