Actor R Madhavan has shared the trailer of his much awaited web series, Breathe, and it will make you think.

Madhavan and Amit Sadh play lead roles in the Amazon Prime original that is directed by Mayank Sharma. Breathe will be released on January 26, in three languages - Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, across 200 countries and territories worldwide. The video shows Madhavan struggling against his own child’s fate who is fighting a fatal disease. He wants to save his life is at any cost and decides to take matters in his own hands.

Breathe is a psychological drama that follows the lives of ordinary people faced with extraordinary circumstances. Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh), a brilliant but unconventional officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch, puts together the pieces of seemingly unconnected deaths of organ donors that lead to an unlikely suspect - the affable Danny Mascarenhas (R Madhavan). As Danny faces the difficult choice between morality and the slim possibility of saving his dying son’s life, Kabir will not stop till he cracks the case and delivers justice.

Danny Mascarenhas (R Madhavan) is the single parent to six-year-old, Josh, who suffers from lung failure (Cystic Fibrosis), a congenital life-threatening disease, and is in dire need of a lung transplant. A God-fearing family man, Danny’s life revolves around his son, his widowed mother and the soccer academy that he runs. Breathe captures his struggle to save the life of his son, and to alter his son’s destiny.

Will the relentless cop catch the killer? Will Danny be able to save his son? What drives Kabir? Who will be the next victim? All these questions and more will be answered through the course of this gripping, emotional and psychological thriller. The difference between a man becoming a ‘Protector’ or ‘Predator’ is simply what’s at stake.

Mayank said in a press statement, “Writing and directing Breathe has been an absolutely exhilarating experience. I am proud of the content that my team and I have put together and can’t wait to share the series with the world! A unique storyline, a deep emotional insight, top technical support, supportive producers and stellar performances – we’ve gone all in with Breathe. The audience will also see Madhavan and Amit in never-before avatars and I hope audiences enjoy the show as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”

The Amazon Prime Original, Breathe, is produced by Abundantia Entertainment and launches on January 26. Breathe will launch as a trilingual 8 episode series simultaneously in over 200 countries.
