I am a blogger who believes in delivering latest tech news from around the world to my viewers.

If you have dipped as much as a pinky into the monster that mainstream news has become nowadays, you must’ve witnessed anchors blurring the lines between drug abuse and medicinal drug use, and reaffirming all the stereotypes that are associated with drugs along with an unhealthy dollop of misogyny. So, I won’t blame you if you look at the trailer for High and feel saturated because of the obnoxious levels of discussion that has gone around the topic at hand. If you have some semblance of sanity of left, then please read on because the MX Player looks pretty interesting.


High is directed by Nikhil Rao and stars Akshay Oberoi, Ranvir Shorey, Mrinmayee Godbole, Shweta Basu Prasad, Kunal Naik, Prakash Belawadi, Nakul Bhalla, Mantra and Madhur Mittal. The official synopsis for the web series states: “Shiv Mathur (Oberoi) is an addict struggling to get a grip on his life and eventually finds himself in a rehab facility. The rehab is run by Doctor Roy (Belawadi) and two other junior doctors, Shweta (Prasad) and Nakul (Bhalla), who are working on a mysterious compound. This magical pill seems to have an edge above all; but is this miracle drug worth dying for? The existence and sampling of this pill creates the biggest disruption in the illegal drugs market and manages to grab the attention of a professional assassin – Lakda (Shorey), amongst many others.”

For some reason, High is giving me a lot of Kaminey vibes in terms of the performances, the look, and the general outline of the plot. And it is making me think that given the sprawling nature of the Vishal Bhardwaj movie, maybe it should’ve been a series. So, if High is anything similar to that, I will be a happy customer. All that said, I really hope that it aims to break some of the stereotypes and stigmas associated with drugs. I am in position to judge if this is the best time to release this, given the nature of the conversation that’s going around drugs. But since it is releasing now, I really hope that it redirects the discourse in a sensible way.

High will stream on MX Player from October 7.
