Amazon miniTV, Amazon’s free video streaming service, is launching a new series Dehati Ladke, based on a best-selling Hindi novel by the same name. It explores the universal themes of friendship, first love, and the hardships of life, all shown through the lens of Rajat played by Shine Pandey. Starring Shine Pandey, Raghav Sharma, Tanish Neeraj, Saamya Jainn, Aasif Khan, and Kusha Kapila in pivotal roles, the series is slated to stream exclusively on Amazon miniTV starting December 15.

The director and cast of ‘Mast Mein Rehne Ka’ talk about their characters, best memories from the set and tips on dealing with loneliness—a key theme of the Hindi Original film.

What’s the plot of Dehati Ladke?

Dehati Ladke is an engrossing tale of Rajat’s (Shine Pandey) journey of self-discovery as he moves from a village to a big city to pursue his dream of clearing the UPSC exams. The story follows Rajat as he explores his new-found freedom, builds new friendships, and experiences first love—all while navigating family pressures and staying true to his goal.

Why you should watch Dehati Ladke?

Amogh Dusad, Content Head at Amazon miniTV says, “College friendships are always special and very near to every individual’s heart. Dehati Ladke talks about the unique yet universal journey one takes when one starts college life away from home in a new city among new people.”

Shine Pandey says, “Dehati Ladke is dedicated to everyone who comes from a small town in the pursuit to find their identity in a new city. Rajat is a simple and innocent boy who is sharp-minded but lacks the many experiences of a big-city life. His friends, who are his strength and also his confidantes, help him navigate through life in Lucknow and transform him into a confident young boy. I am hoping that the audience will enjoy the show and I am sure it will take them back to all the fun they had in their college days.”

Kusha Kapila, who essays the role of Chaya says, “A journey from home to hostel always brings thousands of stories and memories. Dehati Ladke is one such special story that will surely resonate with the viewers. The first year of college life is full of many emotions, from curiosity and budding love to the stress of exams and a fun night with friends. Rajat’s journey is also the same, experiencing new and undiscovered emotions while focusing on his goal. My character, Chaya, brings out the undiscovered side of Rajat.”
