                            'Upstarts': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news, and all you need to know about the Indian movie on Netflix

With the growth of startups in India, there’s an increasing number of young entrepreneurs setting out with new business ideas and wanting to change the world. ‘Upstart’ captures this rising trend and weaves it into the friendship of three college grads, their business struggles, partnership conflicts, and inevitable situations that ensue in each of their lives once the business takes off.

Release date:

The Netflix original is all set to release on Friday, October 18, 2019.


The story of ‘Upstarts’ follows the lives of three friends, Kapil, Vinay, and Yash, each from a different small town in India. Captivated by the startup culture that is sweeping the nation, the trio decides to start a venture to deliver emergency medication to patients in a small town. Something like ‘Uber for medicines’, their business idea is aimed more at helping the lesser privileged and yet, not straying from the idea of making a profit. But, as with most business partnerships, their initial struggles and management ideas cause a rift in their friendship and take them on a journey of realization and discovery of their life goals and relationships. Packed with aspiration, a lot of bromance, and a touch of comedy, the movie takes you on a roller coaster ride of entrepreneurship.
