Web series are the trend this season. We have already seen that a few web series like The Trip and Tanhaiyan are already a hit among the audiences. Not to forget, the award-winning meta comedy series - I Don't Watch TV!
Now, the Ishqbaaz actor Nakuul Mehta and his production company TIMBUKTU are back with a brand new web series - Gangster Newton. Read on to know more .....
The creators at Timbuktu have launched the teaser of Gangster Newton today (March 7) which is sure to blow the audiences away.
The trailer shows a guy named Newton, who will be seen escaping from a few men who are following him. He rushes to his room and takes out things to kill the men!
Newton In Danger!
The men barges into his room and asks if he is Newton by pointing gun towards him. The guy initially denies that he is Newton, but the man shows him his picture and asks if he is not Newton.
Newton Is Pascal!
He later accepts that he was ‘Newton' a few minutes before but now he is ‘Pascal' as he is standing in a square (Newton/meter square = Pascal), and takes the gun from the man.
Newton Asks The Guy...
He shoots all men except one. He tells the guy that he will spare him only if he answers this - When an apple falls from the tree, why does it fall down and why doesn't it go up?
Gravity Defying Web Series – Gangster Newton
Sharing the posted, Nakuul wrote, "After the groundbreaking success of the award winning meta comedy series, #iDontWatchTV , Timbuktu brings to you #GangsterNewton starring @shashank.sunny.arora."
Timbuktu is a production company started by Nakuul Mehta, Alekh Sangal and Ajay Singh. Recently, they won Best Actor (Nakuul Mehta) and Best Director (Ajay Singh) for their debut web series I Don't Watch TV at the Talenttrack awards.
Directed by I Don't Watch TV helmer Ajay Singh, Gangster Newton falls into a completely different genre from IDWT - a scientific gangster comedy that talks about a genius who survives and thrives in the underworld purely by the only skill he has - scientific knowlegde. Titli star Shashank Arora will be seen playing the title character and lead protagonist in the series.
Talking about the latest offering from Timbuktu stable, producer and co-creator Nakuul Mehta says, "The digital platform is going through a very exciting time right now. There is scope for the web to become a completely different medium of storytelling than what TV or film are. We firmly believe that web series can introduce new subjects and an exciting new cinematic language. Gangster Newton is our contribution in that direction."
Talking about casting Shashank and not headlining the show himself, Nakuul says, "We believe in bringing together a team that does justice to the subject as opposed to making content tailored to us as acting talents. We are producers first and we never lose sight of that. Shashank Arora is the most exciting talent in Bollywood right now. His raw energy, passion and commitement to his craft made him an obvious first choice for our Newton."
