ZEE5’s ‘ATM’: Heist crime action drama gets a winsome trailer

Heist dramas that tap into existential issues and elaborate heist schemes are always a treat to watch. Star feature filmmaker Harish Shankar pens ‘ATM’ for ZEE5 and Dil Raju Productions, and its trailer is as commercial and compelling as it can get.

Director C Chandra Mohan loads the web series with elements like crime, action, politics, and even love. If the trailer is any indication, ‘ATM’ has the scale and ambition of a theatrical commercial release.

Scheduled to stream on ZEE5 from January 20, ‘ATM’ tracks the story of a professional robber named Jagan (VJ Sunny) and his gang. They rub Subbaraju’s cop character on the wrong side, triggering a battle of wits. It could well also be a battle of egos for some characters involved in the game of survival. A race against time, a chase across landscapes and action scenes that convey danger and urgency are its major highlights.

Sunny VJ of Bigg Boss Telugu fame is joined by Krishna, Raviraj, Roiel Shree, Divi, Divya Vani, Prudhvi and others. Harshith Reddy and Hanshitha have bankrolled it.

Prashant R Vihari (music), Monic Kumar G (cinematography), and dialogues (Vijay Muthyam, CP Emmanuel) have handled important departments.
