Mumbai: Dice Media’s latest web-series, Operation MBBS is ruling the YouTube charts and has been receiving rave reviews, ever since its first episode released on February 22. And not just reviews, the series has successfully clocked a whopping 3 million views in just 3 days! Starring digital sensation Ayush Mehra along with talented actors Sarah Hashmi and Anshul Chauhan in lead roles, the series is resonating well among the Indian millennials across.
Directed by Amrit Raj, Operation MBBS chronicles the lives of three first-year students, Nishant, Sakshi and Huma who come from diverse backgrounds harbouring unsaid dreams of their own, and how they come together to survive in one of India’s best MBBS colleges. The first episode introduces us to the main characters, and their first few weeks of college, interactions with quirky and unique classmates and seniors and how the three meet fighting to lay claim over an original boneset followed by playing pranks on each other, and eventually become friends, only to journey the most difficult race of their lives, of graduating as a doctor. And this is what forms the crux of Operation MBBS.
Talking about the success of Operation MBBS, Aditi Shrivastava, Co-founder of Pocket Aces said, “The audience response and engagement on Operation MBBS has been overwhelming! We have over 4000 comments from MBBS aspirants and students calling the series authentic, and relating to the characters – their ambitions, their fears, and the reason they want to be doctor. In addition, the series has been loved by the college-going audience at large. We’ve crossed 3 million views in 3 days with excellent watch times.
