Choona is a heist comedy-drama in which an unlikely group of people band together to take down a common enemy—a corrupt politician who has wronged them—using jugaad as their only weapon.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Choona”? For me, it is the quintessentially Indian flavour of “choona lagaana”. The excitement of discovering who deceived whom and how they did it is incomparable, especially when it’s the weak pitted against the powerful. There’s no synonym that can do justice to this feeling, since we are all about the drama and rooting for the underdogs.
Now that I have captured your attention, let me come to the scoop: Imagine the thrill of a heist combined with the lightness of a comedy. Put this together with amazingly talented actors in a long-form series format, and you get “Choona”.
