The eight-episode light-hearted series that premieres on Amazon Prime Video on 16 December, is directed by V. K. Prakash, and stars child actors Ashwanth Ashokkumar and Kartik Vijan along with renowned actors Ashish Vidyarthi and Sonali Kulkarni.
Adapted from Anand Suspi’s eponymous book, Half Pants Full Pants, is set in a small town in South India, before the age of internet and mobiles, where the adventurous and ambitious 7-year-old boy Anand aka Dabba lives. He along with his friend, the obedient and well-mannered Giddi go on adventures that will warm audiences’ hearts and make them miss the good old simple days of mischief and innocence.
“We are extremely excited to associate with Prime Video for this series and take it to audiences across the world. Half Pants Full Pants is a wholesome show that will resonate with viewers because of its universal theme of exploring childhood nostalgia in the 1980s," said Akansh Gaur, Creative Head of OTT Content, OML Entertainment. “The joy of discovery and the fickleness of dreams told through the eyes of a 7-year-old is something that we believe will engage viewers. We are looking forward to everyone being taken back to the warmth of their childhood as they watch this show."
“Half Pants Full Pants is an experience that takes us back to a simpler time where life was untouched by technology and yet sparkling with wonder. Through the story of Dabba, his family, and friends the series captures the magic of childhood in a period without phones or the internet - an unhurried pace of life that we often yearn for," said director V. K. Prakash about the series. He continued, “The cast and crew unanimously gravitated towards telling this story because of its simplicity and innocence. We cannot wait to share this with the world.”
“Half Pants Full Pants is not only a treat for audiences looking for a portal to the past, but also deeply creatively satisfying for us as OML Studios. We are grateful to VK Prakash, Anand Suspi and Amazon Prime Video for partnering with us on this journey of exploration and collaboration, which we hold so close at OML. OML has always believed in finding a way to tell unique stories, and none of this would have been possible without the tireless efforts of the entire team that made it possible. It truly took a village to raise this child. Please join us in enjoying the show.” said Gunjan Arya, CEO, OML Entertainment.
Half Pants Full Pants will premiere on December 16 on Prime Video in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide.
