CANNES: A packed house turned up to watch Eros Now’s premier of its original Smoke at the Verriere Californie in the famed Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France on 15 October 2018 during the world's largest content confab and market MIPCOM.


The shortened  20 minute version of the 45 minutes per episode had you gripped right from the first frame which showed the ailing Tom Alter essaying the role of a Russian drug  mafioso  lord. It revealed the dark underbelly of Goa – a vaction spot for both Indians and foreigners alike. But behind the façade of sandy sun kissed beaches lies the cruel world of the drug  cartels – the Israeli, the Russian, the Konkani – which fight bullet for bullet to control the flow of cocaine, marijuna, speed, in to the land of beaches.

The digital series stars  Jim Sarbh (Neerja), Kalki Koechlin (Margarita, with a Straw), and Mandira Bedi (Vodka Diaries).  Directed by Neel Guha (That Girl in Yellow Boots),  with music from Karsh Kale (Karthik Calling Karthik), Smoke also stars Gulshan Devaiah (Hunterrr), Amit Sial (Inside Edge), Satyadeep Mishra, Neal Bhoopalam, and Prakash Belawadi.
Eros Now chief content officer Ridhima Lulla was pleased with the response Smoke received at the screening. “It is a serious initiative targeted at showcasing Goa like it has never been before,” she says. “The story will take you to deeper into the gang wars that only locals in Goa know about. Our teams worked closely with then to get closer to what really happens in the drug trade. You can safely say that the series is inspired by real events.”

Present at the screening was Rishika Lulla, Eros Now COO Ali Hussein, apart from a string of distributors and producers from all over the world.
