After the premiere of successful Marathi films, Pandu, Zombivili and Dharamveer, ZEE5 – India’s largest homegrown OTT platform and multilingual storyteller, is all set to premiere Timepass 3 on the platform on 16th September. Directed by Ravi Jadhav, the third film in the franchise stars Prathamesh Parab and Hruta Durgule in lead roles.
Filmmaker Ravi Jadhav came up with Timepass in 2014 and followed it up with a sequel in 2015. The first film told the love story of two adolescents, Dagdu and Prajakta, played by Prathamesh Parab and Ketaki Mategaonkar. Timepass 2 was set 15 years after the first one and starred Priyadarshan Jadhav and Priya Bapat. In the third instalment of the franchise, the story returns with a younger Dagdu played by Prathmesh Parab again. All three movies of the franchise are available on ZEE5.
This time, Dagdu who has finally cleared his class XII exam with no less than 36% marks is all set to step into the world of college. Dagdu’s determination of leaving behind his days as a goon and start afresh is constantly tested by the people around who feel he will never change. But he has a new reason to keep going as he falls in love with a fellow student, Palvi who is the daughter of a gangster. Palvi gets impressed by Dagdu’s gentleman image but like all good things must come to an end, Dagdu’s pretend-behaviour does too. Does that hamper Dagdu-Palavi's relation though is what remains to be unfolded in this instalment.
With an IMDB rating of 7.3, Timepass 3 also stars Sanjay Narvelar, Bhau Kadam, Vaibhav Mangle in pivotal roles. The movie is an out and out entertainer with lots of humour and romance. Produced by Athaansh Communication and Zee Studios, the movie is set to premiere on ZEE5 on 16th September.
