ZEE5, India's fastest growing OTT platform announces 'Postman' starring actor Munishkanth as the lead protagonist and actress Keerthi Pandian. Premiering on 27th June, the ten-episode web series revolves around the unfinished job of an ardent Rajinikanth fan who meets with a brutal accident and an anthology of the nine letters he could not deliver.
Directed by the multi-talented Prashanth Gunasekaran and produced by Sameer Barath Ram, the show deals with a postman's journey of completing an unfinished job of delivering nine letters along with his daughter after recovering from coma, 23 years later and parallel stories of the recipients and how life changes after receiving their respective letters.
Munishkanth said, ''The story of Postman is compelling and it is a unique blend of different emotions beautifully put together. It unfolds nine different stories making it the perfect binge-watching experience for audience with varied tastes. It is emotional, humorous and has a powerful story plot. I am truly happy that we are curating such stories and with ZEE5's massive reach, this has the potential to travel far and wide.''
Sharing his perspective, director Prashanth Gunasekaran said, ''The show promises to entertain audiences and leave them with a feel-good factor.
