The OTT space is known for its edgy and experimental content, but Zee5’s new show ‘Fireflies: Parth Aur Jugnu’ brings a breath of fresh air with its fantasy theme. Set against the backdrop of a real Indian family facing common problems, the show follows the story of a dispirited 14-year-old boy named Parth who meets a mystical kid named Jugnu from the haunted forests of Bheem Mukhteshwar. Together, they embark on an action-packed adventure of self-discovery, laughter, and live-action in a never-seen-before avatar.
‘Fireflies: Parth Aur Jugnu’ revolves around a meaningful story that includes relatable characters, their emotions, their challenges, their victories and their defeats. The Indian family story makes the show relatable not just for young adults, but for all ages. The show takes the audience on a journey to their childhood memories of ‘bachpan ki kahaniyan’ sessions with grandparents. The show stands out artistically in its use of folklore to give a message to the community without being preachy. The VFX highlights the beauty of the hills of Himachal as the show showcases the most picturesque locales of Mukhteshwar.
The series stars Meet Mukhi, Aekam Binjwe, Madhoo Shah, Priyanshu Chaterjee, Luke Kenny, Akshat Singh, Zoya Afroz, Varun Kapoor, Harshit Bhojwani, Anaya Shivan, Riva Arora, Rahul Singh, and Hitesh Dave in key roles. Meet Mukhi as Parth and Aekam Binjwe as Jugnu flawlessly delved into their characters. Madhoo Shah’s character of Nani, who gives life lessons of good versus evil, will definitely become a favourite among young adults.
