- Upstarts release date is October 18 on Netflix
- Priyanshu Painyuli, Chandrachoor Rai star in the film
- For Netflix, Upstarts is sixth Indian movie in 2019
It’s only been a few days since Bard of Blood, but Netflix is already starting its marketing machine for the next original from India: Upstarts. We have a trailer and release date — October 18 — for Upstarts, which follows three college graduates, who are “determined to ride the burgeoning wave of startup companies” and “set out to change the world while making millions.” Directed by debutante Udai Singh Pawar, Upstarts stars Priyanshu Painyuli (Bhavesh Joshi Superhero), Chandrachoor Rai (Office vs. Office), Shadab Kamal (Har Har Byomkesh), Rajeev Siddhartha (Bekaaboo), Sheetal Thakur (Brij Mohan Amar Rahe), Ninad Kamat (Airlift), Swati Semwal (Fanney Khan), and Eijaz Khan (City of Dreams).
Upstarts was first announced by Netflix at a showcase event in Singapore in November last year alongside eight others, including the critically-acclaimed crime drama Soni released in January, the Priyanka Chopra-produced Marathi drama Firebrand in February, the Madhuri Dixit-produced Marathi comedy-drama 15 August in March, the romantic drama Music Teacher in April, and the Mithila Palkar, Abhay Deol-starrer comedy Chopsticks in May. Only two — the Anushka Sharma-produced period horror Bulbul, and the book-based romantic drama Cobalt Blue — remain from last year’s announcement, while the last of them, Hotel Mumbai, never made it to Netflix due to rights issues.
