Welcome to Bombay. A story about redemption and a show where every scene is jam-packed with action, AppleTV+‘s Shantaram is a series that will have you completely engrossed every moment.

Shantaram is based off of Gregory David Roberts’s novel of the same name and follows a convicted Australian bank robber named Dale who escapes from prison and seeks refuge in India. However when Dale, portrayed by consummate actor, Charlie Hunnam, begins a new life in India under the pseudonym, Lin, he quickly finds that he is unable to escape from a life where danger is always close by. Along the way of his journey, Lin gets acquainted to a group of people, each with a story and troubles of their own. The series is gripping and allows viewers to step inside the lives of each of the characters. As we get to know more about them, the characters get to learn more about themselves and who they really are as well.

The cinematography of the show is breathtaking and really allows the audience to feel immersed into 1980s Bombay. There was a lot of detail put into this show – from the impressive, choreographed fight scenes to all of the clothing worn in the series that perfectly captures the era the show takes place in.

The adrenaline-filled, captivating show also stars Antonia Desplat, Elektra Kilbey, Fayssal Bazzi, Sujaya Dasgupta, Elham Ehsas, David Field, Rachel Kamath, Shubham Saraf, and Alexander Siddig. The way the cast worked off of each other’s exceptional talents is so awe-inspiring and makes Shantaram the terrific show that it is.

The outstanding cast of Shantaram had a magnificent time gathering together to celebrate the Los Angeles premiere of the series at the Regency Bruin Theatre on Oct. 3.

Co-creator and showrunner, Steve Lightfoot greeted guests inside the screening event and joked, “We’ve been making this show so long, I didn’t wear glasses when we started.”

“I can’t quite believe I’m standing here in front of you all,” continued the brilliant Lightfoot. “I’m beyond excited and honored to be introducing the screening of Shantaram. As anyone involved in the show knows, this has been a real journey and without the hard work [and] loads of dedication… of so many people in this room, we would have never finished it.”
