‘Music Teacher’ on Netflix marks the fifth partnership between the production house and the entertainment service
Yoodlee Films, known for creating some of the most critically acclaimed cinema in recent times, has had its second Netflix Original release with its film, Music Teacher.
Music Teacher, directed by Sarthak Dasgupta, is a story about an emotionally troubled music teacher, essayed by Manav Kaul, who gets a chance to come to terms with his bitterness with an estranged student, now a renowned celebrity singer of Bollywood. The music teacher vows to get back everything he lost in the past risking all his achievements in the present day.
The film boasts of music by Rochak Kohli, who has recreated two Kishore Kumar classics, alongside producing the original songs, which have been sung by the likes of Jubin Nautiyal, Shreya Ghoshal, and Neeti Mohan.
Speaking of the partnership between Yoodlee Films and Netflix, Siddharth Anand Kumar, VP, TV and Films, Saregama and Yoodlee Films, says, “Netflix is a platform that reaches the widest global audience of 148 million members across 190 countries, and we are thrilled that Music Teacher is the second Netflix Original from Yoodlee Films to premiere on the service. With this release, after Brij Mohan Amar Rahe in 2018, we are able to keep our commitment of telling good stories and reaching out to relevant audiences, all over the world.”
