It may not always be progressive, but looks like comedy in Hindi web series is all set to get futuristic, with Disney+Hotstar’s latest series, Ok Computer.
Set in 2031, Ok Computer paints a world where robots and automation are as common to India as pollution in today’s time. Only, in a world of self-driving cars, who do you blame for a hit-and-run? Especially when that hit-and-run uncovers a bigger conspiracy at play?
Vijay Varma stars as the cop on the case of the hit-and-run, while Radhika Apte stars as the able defender of robots, who teams up with Varma to figure out who led the robot astray.
The series also stars Jackie Shroff, as a ‘baba’ looking to rid humanity of the ‘cancer of technology’, and Rasika Dugal, who may just be a mad scientist.
Intriguing and hilarious, Ok Computer definitely doesn’t appear as your usual, run-of-the-mill comedy.
