Netflix drops trailer of romantic fantasy thriller series 'Tooth Pari: When Love Bites'

Mumbai/IBNS: What happens when a beautiful vampire falls in love with a shy, faint-hearted, yet lousy dentist? Sparks fly! Their love is a forbidden one, the kind that can result in a delirious clash of worlds, threatening to tear them apart. Welcome to the world of Tooth Pari: When Love Bites - a romantic fantasy thriller from Netflix.

Produced by Endemol Shine India and directed by Pratim Dasgupta, Tooth Pari stars Shantanu Maheshwari and Tanya Maniktala as the endearing Roy and Rumi.

It all started when Rumi, the rebellious vampire from ‘Neeche’ broke one of her fangs during a hunt and landed at a human dentist - Roy’s clinic. While it turned out to be a ‘meet cute’ for this couple, what followed next is something worth a watch.

Set in Kolkata, this romantic fantasy thriller promises a ‘love bite’ you will never forget! The picturesque Kolkata simply lends its mystery and charm to the narrative with its dark alleyways, the Maidan Metro Station, Nonapukur Tram Depot, the Babughat bridge and the Howrah phoolghat amongst many other iconic attractions bringing the world of Tooth Pari alive.

From a modern-day Wicca and the leader of Cutmundus, Luna Luka (Revathy), who is hell-bent on exposing the vampires to Sub. Inspector Kartik (Sikander Kher) gets entangled in an untoward case that can cost him his job; from Roy (Shantanu Maheshwari) not willing to give up on Rumi knowing her truth to Rumi (Tanya Maniktala) promising never to bite again; this clash of ‘upar’ and ‘neeche’ is surprising, shocking, riveting and will get your heart racing. Being irresistibly drawn to each other, will Roy and Rumi’s love triumph over everything else?

Creator & Director of the series, Pratim Dasgupta said, “Magical, thrilling and unapologetically romantic, Tooth Pari is a fantastical fairy tale set in today’s Kolkata. While at its core, it’s a classic love story between a vampire and a human being, it’s also a life-affirming fable brimming with humanity. The series brings together some of the best actors we have in the country who tap into their wild side to get under the skin of these unique characters."

Speaking about the series, Tanya Bami, Series Head, Netflix India, said, “We’ve been on an amazing journey in 2023 with breakout titles such as Rana Naidu, Class and Trial By Fire. And now our next distinctive offering Tooth Pari is a completely new genre as a quirky thriller and yet a sweet love story. With the success of romantic titles on our service such as Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein and Mismatched, romance as a genre is a strong play for us.”

Rishi Negi, CEO, Endemol Shine India said, “Endemol Shine India has always been at the forefront of curating, and nurturing emerging talent to make leaps in entertainment and bring original, disruptive, and bold ideas to life. Tooth Pari: When Love Bites is a testament to that belief and vision!”

Speaking about the trailer launch, Shantanu Maheshwari expressed, “The trailer only scratches the surface of what's in store for the viewers in this impossible love story. It’s a romantic thriller with subtle hints of comedy weaved into the vampire genre, which I feel is a very unique and a very distinct take on this genre. The story is fresh, unique with a first-of-its-kind experience and we are quite excited about the release.”

Tanya Maniktala further added, “I'm thrilled to be a part of this project and can't wait for audiences to see the story unfold. We believe the uniqueness of the story will appeal to lovers of different genres, from romance to fantasy to thriller.  Each one of us is playing a character we have never played before. We had a lot of fun making this series and we believe the audience will have an equally amazing experience”.

The romantic fantasy thriller series will also see Adil Hussain, Saswata Chatterjee and Tillotama Shome, amongst others in a never-seen-before avatar. Tooth Pari: When Love Bites unfolds a world of dark secrets, forbidden romance, stunning visuals and heart-pumping action.

Tooth Pari: When Love Bites premieres on Netflix on April 20.
