The trailer of the upcoming streaming release film The Archies is out. Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor who will make their Hindi film debut with Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Vedang Raina and Yuvraj Menda is a story of teenagers from the fictional town of Riverdale.
The 3 minute long trailer shows the titular character of Archie Andrews, essayed by Nanda, who has his eyes set on Veronica, portrayed by Khan, and Betty portrayed by Khushi, both of whom are best friends.
The trailer shows the group of teenagers wrestling with love, heartbreaks, friendship and rebellion as it offers a glimpse into the world of the film, set in the hilly town of Riverdale, in the India of the 1960s.
The conflict in the film arises when ‘Green Park’, which is so dear to the teenagers, gets sold in order to construct a swanky hotel by Veronica’s (played by Khan) dad, who also buys all the shops at Town Square to rebuild them into a plaza. This leads to friction between the friends and sets the ground for the narrative.
The Archies is directed by Zoya Akhtar, who has co-written it with Reema Kagti and Ayesha Devitre. It will stream on Netflix from December 7.
