Zee to debut thriller 'Tamanna House' in 10 pm slot

MUMBAI: While it might be a competitive channel, but it has always held on to its "different" entertainment channel status. So while thrillers are on the weekend menu of the competitors, Zee's next launch Tamanna House- a thriller is its primetime weekday fare.

The show debuting on 27 June 2004 in 10 pm slot, from Sunday to Wednesday will replace Kaun.

The show is such conceptualised that it marries comedy and thriller. It marks return of Ruby Bhatia and Jas Arora to the television.

Producer by Dinesh Bansal's Meteor films, Tamanna House is written and directed by debutante Mohan Azad.

The cast includes Virendra Saxena, Donny Kapoor, Upasana Singh, Satya, Pooja Garg, Shivam Shetty, Harjeet Walia, Vaishali Nazarath, Hemant Pandye, Phalguni Parikh and Vinay Pathak besides Arora and Bhatia.

The show saw an innovative press launch, yesterday, on the sets.

The first episode starts with a party, where the uninvited guest start dropping in on hosts - Tamanna (Bhatia) and Dileep (Arora)- the lead characters of the serial.

Dileep and Tamanna are a married couple, who are hosting a party to celebrate their divorce. The host have organised a game for guests to play, where the winner stands to win Rs 50 million. Interestingly, the Rs 50 milllion will be booted by the host, who loses the divorce case. While the game begins, a murder is committed and the party gets transformed into a murder mystery.

While the serial shows a lot of promise, but what remains to be seen is if it helps Zee manage a hold in the 10 pm slot.
