Indian coming of age comedy Brahman Naman is to receive its worldwide premiere on Netflix later this year.

Directed by independent filmmaker Q (which stands for Quashik Mukherjee), Brahman Naman is set in Bangalore in the 1980s. It follows a nerdy college quiz team who travel to Kolkata to try to win the all-India finals and lose their virginity along the way.

“Brahman Naman is Indian cinema at its boldest: fast, furious and raucously funny,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“It’s a movie that will delight adolescents of all ages, and we’re excited to bring this hilarious tale to our members around the world.”

Netflix bought the worldwide subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) rights for the film for a reported seven figure sum, following its premiere at the recent Sundance Film Festival.

The US streaming giant launched its Indian online streaming service in January, but with Brahman Naman will also be able to target the large Indian diaspora in its markets around the world.

Brahman Naman, which was written by Naman Ramachandran, stars Shashank Arora (who was also in the film Titli). It is co-produced by Celine Loop and Steve Barron, director of Michael Jackson’s video for Billie Jean.

Director Q’s previous films include Gandu, Tasher Desh and Ludo.
