Watch Trailer! P.O.W a dramatic series by Nikhil Advani:- Filmmaker Nikhil Advani, who directed movies like Kal Ho Naa Ho and D-Day, is back with a bang. The director’s latest project is a finite TV series, which is named P.O.W. –Bandi Yuddh Ke. The show is based on the Israeli drama series, Hatufim (Prisoners of War), upon which the hit American TV series Homeland was also based.
The trailer of the show has been recently released on the official channel of Star Plus.
“The show isn’t an adaptation of Homeland, which is a thriller. What we have created is a family drama. The channel approached me after watching my film D-Day, and said that they wanted to do a show like that.
They asked me to go ahead and try to make it as real as possible. They had already watched Hatufim, and then they made me watch it. It is a story about two soldiers who go missing after the 1999 Kargil War,” Nikhil; said in an interview to a leading daily.
What will all the series highlight?
Nikhil has said that the story of the series will be also focusing on the wives of those soldiers, who go missing after the war. P.O.W. will be making a point to focus on their (wives’) pain, trials, and the uncertainties, as they are the ones who suffer silently.
“As I watched the show, I have realized that the real prisoners of war are these soldiers’ wives and families. In 17 years, the wives were not able to move on with their lives, every time they want to move ahead, they get this sense of guilt that is holding them back. They think, ‘what if he comes back?” There is still hope,” added Nikhil.
P.O.W. has been shot mainly in and around Delhi and Patiala. The show stars actors like Purab Kohli and Sandhya Mridul in their pivotal roles.
