Ever since the promo was released last week, “Bad Boy Billionaires,” has created a lot of buzz around it. This investigative docuseries promises to expose India’s most infamous business tycoons, who cheerfully (Yes! Cheerfully), fell into the abyss of greed, fraud, and corruption; eventually creating an empire, that reigned over the Indian syndicate and market for decades.
The promo of the documentary has rubbed a great many people the wrong way i.e., Sahara Chief, Subrata Roy; Mehul Choksi, the promoter of Gitanjali Gems, Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya, who are all the protagonists of this controversial documentary.
A district court in Bihar’s Araria, last week passed an interim stay order on the broadcasting of ‘Bad Boy Billionaires: India,’ a Netflix documentary, scheduled to be broadcasted on September 2, following a petition from Subrata Roy – Sahara chief.
However, not backing down from the coercion, Netflix is likely to move to Supreme Court in this regard the coming week. While the promo of the documentary has been removed from the streaming platform, it is still available on YouTube.
Meanwhile…. An Honest Trailer Review: Bad Boy Billionaires
The trailer/promo of Netflix’s Bad Boy Billionaires is a must-watch for all the entrepreneur out there. This investigative Netflix series brings forward the biggest scams, corruption, crime, fraud and vice that built and brought down the empire of India’s most notorious and corrupt entrepreneurs.
We, as humans, tend to forget things. When we watch controversies, scams, hard-hitting reality and scandals on TV or social media it irks and boils our blood. But once it fades away from the social media and television screen, it dematerialises and slowly gets erased from our minds. However, lately, OTT platforms, social media and filmmakers have been producing series and movies around real-time topics that hold weight and shouldn’t be ignored in the first place.
Netflix, an American technology and media services provider and production company, is doing something alike and has released the promo of “Bad Boy Billionaires: India” which highlights the shameful and dubious stories of Vijay Mallya, Subrata Roy, Nirav Modi, and Byrraju Ramalinga Raju.
Moreover, these infamous entrepreneurs do bring back the revolting memories and pictures in the mind of every Indian. Their names will forever be part of the business models and history but each of these business tycoon’s story is much more convoluted than one can think of. These men have been under the gun for multiple corruption charges and high-level money laundering. Their vice influenced many people from various fields of life – politicians, celebrities, banks, you name it and they played a part in it. It also showcases the dark sides of capitalism, power and monopoly.
This investigative Netflix series showcases the life of these top billings who are the most suitable living example of corporate crooks. As you watch the promo/trailer, it will bring back all your memories and their scams that transpired right in front of our eyes while you were living in denial or ignorance while growing up. It’s maddening, repulsive, and makes you question how the entire society and nation could fall under the pretence of such major scams?
Also in the trailer, we see the subject matter experts casting light on the life of these businessmen, industrialists, and financiers who ascended the ladder by fair means or foul. The authorities highlight how these business magnates were able to pull such a big swindle, how they deceived and used the funds for their leverage. Furthermore, you will find them socialising with some of the most powerful people around the globe.
The documentary will be aired on September 2. The official abridgement of the documentary states, “What would you do to make it to the top? To build an empire? To maintain an image? Bad Boy Billionaires answers just that. Dive into the stories of India’s most infamous billionaires- Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi, Subrata Roy, and Byrraju Ramalinga Raju as they plan, plot and manoeuvre through their rises and falls. Watch as insiders and experts discuss what made these men genius and, in some cases, the greatest conmen.”
While the promo of the documentary has been removed from the streaming platform, it is still available on YouTube.
