Rise: A web series featuring Vikrant Massey

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

Vikrant Massey is a gifted actor, a truly special acting talent produced by Indian cinema in recent times. 2017 has been a special year for the actor. Until recently Massey was mostly playing supporting characters but it all changed with Konkana Sen Sharma's A Death in the Gunj. It has certainly proved to be a breakthrough film for Massey. A Death in the Gunj was followed by Lipstick Under My Burkha. Amidst a bunch of one dimensional male character, Massey's was the only character with layers. 

And now he has starred in an engaging web series titled 'Rise' which revolves around an average professional, faced with something he is not prepared for. Rise sees the lead character discover himself as he flips around the situation he is faced with to make best use of the circumstances.

The 4-part web series follows Shrey, an IT professional who is unexpectedly laid-off his job, but the real story is about how he exploits this fall to bounce back stronger and live up to his dreams as he embarks on an epic road trip through Mumbai, Kolkata, and Sikkim. In ‘Rise’ we will also see the return of Sharmaji (from Born Free), a senior citizen with unwanted free advice, who accompanies Shrey on this road trip. The web series will follow Shrey and Sharmaji on this adventure together, an odd duo of travelers where one is reluctant and the other is over-enthusiastic about the situation.
