Tiger Baby Films production has just introduced a fresh batch of actors with the upcoming film The Archies, directed by Zoya Akhtar. The teaser and trailer has been out last weekend.

The audience went crazy when the first official poster was up on all the social media handles. The makers of the film posted it with the caption, “Grab your picnic baskets and pick out your cutest outfits, we’re going to greet Archie’s gang. Presenting the cast of THE ARCHIES, a Zoya Akhtar film. Sharing a teaser of sorts, introducing us to other characters from the film, the makers wrote: “The sun is out, the news is out! Come and meet your new friends. Presenting to you the cast of The Archies, directed by the fantastic Zoya Akhtar.”

The Archies features a group of friends and their fun-spun lives with Archibald Andrews as the protagonist and his inner circle of Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie. In this Bollywood version, Archie is played by Agastya Nanda, Veronica by Suhana Khan, and Betty by Khushi Kapoor. 

The movie is set to release this year on the OTT platform Netflix. With The Archies trailer out, the fans are rather in a dwindled situation as to whether the film stands on its name or drops down. The original Archies comics were in the market for quite a lengthy period of time. And those Archies fans have high expectations for the outcome of this film if it’ll raise the same bar or not.

Another thing that makes the audience circle around a spiral is the relatability this movie will give to the regular human. As the film features three new debuts of star kids Agastya Nanda, Suhana Khan, and Khushi Kapoor, it is a matter of criticism that may come from the people.

The normal human processes a story positively when it hits a relatable spot. However, this film has a different plot that may make the energy of the fans dim low or may lighten them up with the amazing story and quality performance.

The Indian Cinema has put a step forward in the aesthetic genre, and while this may be something that the millennials are not used to watching, GenZ people will definitely enjoy it. The name itself, The Archies is enough to spark interest in the youth and they are all hands on deck with the film. 

With such great interaction received by the fans, The Archies film has raised high hopes for everybody. In addition to that, the audience cannot wait to see the new cast and their on-screen performance.

There are a few judgmental opinions put up by people on social handles on how the high-fame kids have been starred, but there’s also a positive response supporting the budding actors in their debut movie. The audience cannot wait for the release of the film and watch it as soon as it gets out!
