The creative collaboration between Netflix and Yash Raj Films (YRF) marks a significant milestone in the realm of content, and The Railway Men is the first project from this dynamic partnership to stream on Netflix. The partnership aims to push the envelope of clutter-breaking entertainment by taking Indian stories to a global audience and this series will make its way to audiences worldwide on November 18.
The four-episode series is directed by debutant director Shiv Rawail, one of YRF’s homegrown talents. Set against the backdrop of the Bhopal Gas Leak, the world’s worst industrial disaster, and inspired by true stories, The Railway Men is a thrilling account of courage and a salute to humanity. It offers a poignant narrative of the unsung heroes - the railway employees of India, who went beyond their call of duty, trying to save the lives of hundreds of innocent citizens trapped in a helpless city.
With a remarkable ensemble of actors, featuring the versatile R Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, Divyenndu, and a promising Babil Khan, The Railway Men will instil in you the belief that even in the darkest of days, courage can be found in the least expected corner.
