‘Antenna’, written, and directed by Shoib Nikash Shah and produced by Raj Kushwaha and Sakshi Seth, is out today on streaming platform ShemarooMe. The movie has been touted to be the first Bollywood movie to entirely be shot in the Union Territory of Ladakh. The film’s cinematography has been boasted as showcasing Ladakh’s beauty in all its glory. Another interesting facet about the film is its cast, which comprises almost exclusively of local Ladakhi actors with director Shoib Nikash Shah starring as the film’s leading man. The movie also has actors like Padma Dolkar, Tanu Choksit, Tsering Chosphel, Azmat Khwaja, and Imran Khan at its helm.
Shoib Nikash Shah expressed his views about the project, “The trailer of the film came a few days ago and today, the film is releasing! I am sure this movie would take 90s kids back to their childhood! Even the present-day kids, who cannot imagine anything without the internet, would find it interesting to see children on screen struggling to get an Antenna to watch their favourite show, something that they get in just one click!”
“The struggle of the kids, their journey would teach modern-day kids that they have to strive hard to achieve something in life. I have done theme-based films before also like Football and My Angel, My Teacher. I hope the audience finds this interesting along with the parallel plot of the film,” added Shah.
