Welcome to the wildly fictionalised world of two film students on one global mission – To make the world’s most viral video.
Abbaas and Mastan, fresh out of film school and die-hard fans of Karan Johar and Quentin Tarantino, are being held by a terrorist organisation to deliver 3 million views on a video. They try to channel the art of their masters as they plan the world’s most viral video… the beheading of a gora kaafir.
The Adventures Of Abbaas Mastan is a first-of-its-kind format, presented in the new universal language of gibberish where the entire cast of characters speak absolute nonsense while still making perfect sense. Led entirely by subtitles, the series is a unique, language-agnostic show that can adapt itself to any expression without getting lost in translation. Currently featuring English subtitles, the The Adventures Of Abbaas Mastan will soon be available in Hindi and other languages.
This is a comedy of errors with two peaceable and lovable idiots at the centre, who are trying to find their way to Internet fame and remain true to their filmmaking idols in Hollywood and Bollywood… all the while desperately trying to avoid the actual beheading. Bhuvan Arora and Vyom Sharma win hearts with their portrayals of the peace-loving Abbaas and Mastan who are familiar with only one kind of shooting – the type that happens with a camera.
Saikumar, Founder, Arré said “We’re very pleased to partner with Facebook to launch this series first on the platform. The original idea behind the show was to do a humourous takedown of two of the world’s most pressing issues – terrorism and obsession with internet fame. With ‘The Adventures of Abbaas Mastan’, we’ve tried a whole new format based on gibberish-speak. The series captures the attempt of these blundering, well-meaning film buffs, who attempt to make a viral video in captivity.”
“When people come across posts and videos on Facebook that strongly resonate with them, they further share it with their friends. Good topical humour definitely strikes a chord with most and is a great conversation starter. We are excited to see how the Arré community on Facebook has built itself so strongly as a premium content destination with refreshing humorous content of a social nature. We wish them the very best for this series!” – said Biswamitra, Strategic Partnership Development – Entertainment, FB India.
Season one of The Adventures Of Abbaas Mastan consists of four chapters and two episodes are live now. Watch the next episode first on Arré’s Facebook page and www.arre.co.in.
