OK Computer: Disney+ Hotstar Unveils Trailer, Release Date for Anand Gandhi’s Sci-Fi Comedy Series


OK Pc trailer is right here. No, this isn’t the Radiohead album, although it is positive named after it. That is Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi’s subsequent undertaking. Disney+ Hotstar has unveiled a two-and-a-half-minute trailer for OK Pc, a sci-fi comedy Hotstar Specials collection created and written by Gandhi, and starring the likes of Radhika Apte (Andhadhun), Vijay Varma (Gully Boy), Jackie Shroff (Prison Justice), and Rasika Dugal (Mirzapur). OK Pc follows cyber cell agent Hari Kundu (Varma) who makes an attempt to unravel a pedestrian’s dying by a self-driving automobile. Because the investigation unfurls, a robotic named Ajeeb leads to the crosshairs, elevating questions on Asimov’s Three Legal guidelines of Robotics, whether or not AI has turned on its creator, and if robots deserve the identical remedy as people.

Along with Varma’s Hari Kundu, OK Pc stars Apte as Laksmi who leads a personal organisation known as PETER for the moral remedy of robots, Shroff as a maniac who claims to be the “actual assassin” within the OK Pc trailer, and Dugal as somebody who appears to have misplaced her marbles.

“OK Pc is an try and think about a world of our near-future collectively, and chuckle out loud whereas we’re at it,” Gandhi mentioned in a ready assertion. “The present asks one of many largest questions of this century: if AI commits against the law, who must be culpable? It asks this query with madcap humour, zany characters, and a rollercoaster epic story. It has been my privilege to supply unprecedented tales to Indian audiences. OK Pc, like my earlier work, is a small step in a totally new path. I hope it opens up the floodgates for science fiction leisure in India.”

This is the official synopsis for OK Pc from Disney+ Hotstar:

The yr is 2031. On a quiet, smoggy night time in a quaint coastal city in North Goa, when a self-driving taxi crashes right into a human pedestrian, killing him instantaneously, a vexing query presents itself to the authorities: who’s responsible? Is it the CEO of the taxi firm? Or the supervising programmer on the night time shift? Or might it’s the automobile itself? Whereas the legislation scrambles to determine culpability, cyber cell agent Hari Kundu (Vijay Varma) discovers that this was no accident, it was a premeditated homicide, solely to be counter questioned by the feisty Laksmi (Radhika Apte) who leads a personal organisation for the moral remedy of robots PETER and firmly believes that AI is just not able to harming people.

OK Pc focuses on the battle between ideologies for and in opposition to know-how, and poses the bigger query of ‘Has AI which was created by people, and which people got here to depend on now stopped being a boon and has as an alternative begun to be annoying, overpowering, or dangerous?

OK Pc is out March 26 on Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium. It is going to be obtainable in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Malayalam, Marathi, and Kannada.
