Hyderabad: The Telugu original series 'ATM' is set to stream on ZEE5 from 20 January. The teaser of the heist series was launched on Sunday. The Dil Raju production is presented by Shirish and produced by Harshith Reddy and Hanshitha in association with ZEE5. The story is by Harish Shankar and is directed by C. Chandra Mohan.
The teaser introduces us to the world of the heist drama headlined by VJ Sunny. Subbaraju plays a significant role. The characters are seemingly driven by self-interests and the treatment is raw and entertaining.
Speaking on the occasion, showrunner Harish Shankar said, "As a director, I have always believed that this genre—heist drama series—has a lot to explore. The portrayal of enigmatic thieves in 'ATM' will keep you on the edge of your seat. What sets it apart is its dexterous screenplay and dramatic scenes and sentimentalities. Without spilling the beans, I would like to call it a bold attempt to blend comedy with a relentless game of cat and mouse. With ZEE5 onboard, we are confident the series will be watched by a large audience and enjoyed as well."
Producer Harshit Reddy thanked the showrunner and said, "Harish Shankar garu first came up with this idea behind 'ATM'. He narrated the storyline of four youngsters who are involved in petty robberies getting cornered by some powerful people, only to be made to pull off a multi-crore heist just to stay alive. The idea was really exciting and it has all the Harish Shankar elements that people love."
He continued, "We then needed someone who can narrate this story in the best possible way on screen and that is when Harish garu suggested Chandra Mohan's name to us and gave him the responsibility of telling this story."
'ATM' tells the story of four youngsters from the slums of Hyderabad who are petty thieves. One day, they find themselves trapped in a big robbery case and become the most-wanted criminals. Their journey toward survival and redemption is what the series is all about.
