Sony MAX2, India’s iconic Hindi movie channel brings to its viewers one of Amitabh Bachchan’s classic comeback movies, ‘Sooryavansham’- a movie which proved that Amitabh Bachchan always had the ‘Midas Touch’. Dwelling on the father-son conflict where Amitabh plays both father, Thakur Bhanupratap Singh and illiterate son, Heera, this movie has the capability of making you an Amitabh fan all over again.
Despite completing 16 years, Sooryavansham still has a personal connect with many because of the values that resonate strongly with the Indian values. The movie revolves around the lives of Thakur who has scant respect for his son, Heera and shows his disliking towards him while the meek and obedient son makes no protest. As Heera falls in love with Radha (Soundarya), the unbending Thakur tosses the couple out of the house and the son instead of protesting, struggles to make ends meet and eventually climbs the ladder of success.
Udayan Shukla, Senior VP & Head, Programming- Sony MAX movie cluster,said,“Sooryavansham is a movie which is reminiscent of Sony MAX, however, taking into consideration the mass appeal of the movie and Amitabh Bachchan, we wanted MAX2 viewers to enjoy this classic as well. What’s intriguing is that the movie is not only massy but is inspirational as well as aspirational for the Indian middle class. One of the major reasons for premiering the movie on MAX2 is that the movie resonates well with MAX 2’s target audience and we are sure that it will have a high affinity on MAX 2 as well.”
Tune in to watch one of Amitabh’s best comeback movies on 22nd January at 7pm only on Sony MAX2
