Mumbai, 18th April 2023 – Amazon miniTV’s recently released Gutar Gu is wooing the audience with its heart-warming storyline, relatable dialogues, and young cast. The series explores the story of two teenagers who are complete opposites yet are drawn towards each other with courtesy, Love. Gutar Gu is an amalgamation of subjects and emotions ranging from friendship, family, identity, love and heartbreak. Spreading the magic, the series will take the viewers back to their school days, reminiscing about one’s first love. Streaming on Amazon miniTV, this wholesome teen romance is produced by Guneet Monga, India’s first female producer to have won an Oscar this year.
With new-age projects like Monsoon Shootout, Masaan, Peddler, among others, Guneet Monga has been redefining films and bringing up visible transformation in the cinematic representation of storytelling. Her second collaboration is with director Saqib Pondar and the cast Ashlesha Thakur and Vishesh Bansal after Gupt-Gyaan. Regarding choosing this project, Guneet said, “First Loves are always very special, so it was a fun idea to work on. After receiving unprecedented love for ‘Gupt Gyan’ – our short film, we were super excited to collaborate with Director Saqib Pandor, transforming our well-received short film into its own Web Series! “Gutar Gu” is a new chapter in the story of Ritu and Anuj, dives deep into the many ups and downs of teenage relationships- navigating strict parents, dating protocols, and the innocence and moments of first love. I think the young and old both will resonate with the show equally.”
Spilling the beans on her momentous Oscar win and giving a sneak-peak on selecting scripts Guneet said, “Winning an Oscar is, of course, a huge honour, but I feel that the content my team and I choose at Sikhya has resulted from investing in good storytelling over the years. Hence there’s no pressure to meet anyone’s expectations. We will continue to tell homegrown stories from the heartland and stories that resonate with us. If we are true to ourselves, the audience will hopefully appreciate our work.”
Produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Guneet Monga under the banner Sikhya Entertainment, this six-episode series focuses on the issues and challenges that affect Ritu and Anuj’s relationship and how intense parental pressure adds to their woes. Gutar Gu is streaming on Amazon miniTV exclusively for free, accessible with the click-of-a-button on Amazon’s shopping app, Fire TV, and desktop.
