In a city that refuses to sleep where nightlife no longer exists, four friends convert a run-down bungalow into an underground all-night party destination. The instant success is followed by a series of bust-ups and trouble with the authorities. These events could well describe the recent series of incidents when ACP Vasant Dhoble cracked down on city's pubs and restaurants. However, these happenings make for the story of MTV's new fiction show, Bring on the Night.
"This show isn't about Dhoble and his likes. The problem of a clamp down on nightlife has persisted across India for long. Dhoble has only brought it to the forefront," says the show's writer-director Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy. The 10-part series that will go on air starting September 22, explains the director, through a narrative addresses how people can no longer access the hours of the night. "We are not being barbaric or vandalising, yet, night hours are made inaccessible to us Indians," adds Krishnamoorthy, who is also the frontman of the metal band Scribe and the director of the music show, The Dewarists.
The show revolves around the story of Kabir Dalal (KD), played by film actor Arjun Mathur, an event manager who finds himself out of job but keen to start a venture of his own. Invited to a party at his Parsi friend's dilapitating bungalow, he sees in the place — with its vast space and nooks and crannies — the possibility of converting it into the venue for underground parties. He then gets together with his three friends — Patrick, Devang Ozha and Maakad — and a bunch of others, to set up the club. "KD first brings them all together to do something awesome, and eventually, brings them all down with him," adds Krishnamoorthy.
Each of the key characters represent real people, youth that one comes across in everyday life with their own set of quirks. Patrick, played by British actor Patrick Fairbottom, is described as a Mumbaikar trapped inside an Englishman, who has a knack of converting the unlikeliest of items into centrepieces. Socially awkward, Guajarti Devang Ozha (theatre actor Hussain Dalal) is the man around technology and gizmos. Sarang Sathaye is Maakad, a Maharashtrian who can get any and every job done for his talent of jugaad.
