After her stupendous success with the short drama titled Chutney starring Tisca Chopra and Rasika Dugal,which till date has 122 million views on YouTube, director Jyoti Kapur Das is back with another promising project. Titled, Plus Minus, the film is a relationship drama starring Divya Dutta and India’s biggest content creator Bhuvan Bam.
After having captured the digital mediums with his incredible content, Bhuvan, who runs a highly successful YouTube channel titled BB Ki Vines, will make his acting debut with this short film. Over the years, Bhuvan has earned himself the top spot on YouTube with almost 10 million subscribers and a loyal fan base.
The story of Plus Minus revolves around two strangers who meet on a train journey and one conversation between them changes their lives. It delves into the dynamics of human relationships. The title reflects the idea that humans have to do plus and minus in relationships to make it work.
The film is set to release on September 14 and has been produced by Guneet Monga, Achin Jain and Rohit Raj. Guneet has earlier given gems like Masaan, Lunchbox, Gangs of Wasseypur to name a few.
Speaking about his acting debut, Bhuvan Bam said, “The story itself was compelling enough for me to jump onto it and gladly be a part of it. And with an impeccable team backing the film, it was an easy decision for me. The story is simple but extremely effective which explores various dimensions of human relationships through the narrative of two individuals, played by Divya and me.”
Adding to his thought, Divya, who makes her short film debut, said, “Exploring human relationships and their various aspects through a short film was indeed a unique experience for me as an actor. To capture so many emotions and layers within such few minutes is a challenge but I think Jyoti has captured that essence well. Collaborating with Bhuvan, Guneet and Jyoti has been a pleasure and I’m excited with this being my debut in the short film format. Can’t wait for the film to come out in a few days”.
Guneet said she’s ecstatic as a producer to have an amazing team of Bhuvan, Divya and Jyoti coming together for this unique project. “Jyoti has given an incredible success with Chutney and when she shared this story with me, I knew we had something special in hand. This was an opportunity to collaborate with Bhuvan and his channel BB Ki Vines, Plus Minus being their first cinematic co-production. We hope the audience enjoys the film as much as we loved making it”.
The film will be released on the YouTube channel of BB Ki Vines and marks the first of such a collaboration for the channel since its inception.
