The plot centres around Willy and Kiattisak playing best friends, Rang and Peng, who after getting caught in a diamond heist goes on a whirlwind adventure to save their marriage, family relationships and even their friendship. At the same time, they are also trying to take revenge on their enemies and steal back their lost diamond, all while being tailed closely by a comedic cop duo who is just one step behind them.

This is the first of many exciting originals to come that delivers quality entertainment to our customers and hopefully will keep you Hooq's to your screens. We will continue to push boundaries, to evolve and stay committed to delivering unique, compelling and edgy stories to millions of our customers both in Thailand and in the region,? said Hooq CEO Peter Bithos.

Saranair Love You is currently playing in Thai cinemas and will be available on Hooq 3 months after the last cinematic screening. This comes hot after the several other announcements of cinematic Asian originals co-produced by Hooq from Indonesia including Critical Eleven, Sweet 20 and Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts, which was also recently screened at the Director?s Fortnight at Cannes.
