There’s something creepy as soon as you enter the Sunflower housing company, at least that’s what the trailer suggests. The latest Zee5 web series is expected to give audiences a murder mystery with a twist. Starring Sunil Grover, Ashish Vidyarthi, Ranvir Shorey, Girish Kulkarni and Mukul Chadda, Sunflower looks hot for more than one reason.
Zonnebloem revolves around a ‘non-cooperative’ society of the same name and its idiosyncratic residents. But the common thread that they all run is their mysterious properties. The story follows the residents’ quest to make Sunflower the best housing company until she becomes involved in a murder investigation. Enter Shorey and Kulkarni who play police and try to uncover the layers of the whodunit.
Zonnebloem has blobs of dark humor and an interesting background music. Grover appears to be projecting an alter ego with a suspicious innocence. His jokes aren’t on the fun side. There is also something unattractive about Chadda’s character. In short, Sunflower is peppered with elements that show that there is more to it than meets the eye.
The eight-episode series, also starring Shonali Nagrani, Saloni Khanna and Radha Bhatt, is written and co-directed by Vikas Bahl, with Rahul Sengupta at the helm.
Sunflower, produced by Reliance Entertainment and Good Co., will premiere on Zee5 on June 11.
