Amazon Prime Video today released the trailer for the eagerly-awaited Kannada film, French Biriyani. Making its global premiere exclusively on the service, the movie becomes the sixth of the seven Indian films across five local languages to release directly on Amazon Prime Video. 

The action comedy-drama stars comedian Danish Sait as Asgar portraying the role of an autorickshaw driver in Bengaluru alongside Sal Yusuf as Simon, visiting the country for the first time. Their fates cross lines when unexpected circumstances cause Simon and Asgar to unite in order to search for Simon’s lost Samaan.

Directed by Pannaga Bharana, French Biriyani is produced by Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar and Gurudath A Talwar under the banner of PRK productions. Prime members in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide can watch the much-awaited movie in Kannada from July 24th onwards.


“We are excited to bring French Biriyani on Amazon Prime Video that features one of the most versatile comics and actors- Danish Sait. In addition to being a thoroughly captivating film, we are certain that the local flavour will appeal to the viewers taste and play a crucial role in taking the film to great heights. We are confident that this comedy of errors will earn a special place in the hearts of cinema enthusiasts alike,” said Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India.

“We are delighted about the upcoming launch of French Biriyani, as we endeavor to bring to our viewers a light-hearted action-packed comedy thriller that will surely leave an everlasting positive impact on the audience. Danish Sait and Sal Yusuf bring so much to the table in terms of their sheer comic prowess and quirkiness. I truly believe that there could not have been a better choice than them to play the two lead roles. With the movie releasing on Amazon Prime Video across 200 countries and territories, we are glad that the film will reach a global audience enabling them to revel in Kannada cinema.” said Director Pannaga Bharana.

“A movie should always be entertaining and we, at PRK Productions, strive to achieve the same. If one can laugh out their heart and at the same time love the narrative, then it’s a win for us. French Biriyani is one such movie from our house which will serve this purpose very well. The Kannada film industry is known to have rolled out some of the most-entertaining movies of all time and French Biriyani too will uphold the tradition,” commented Producer Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar.

Synopsis: French Biriyani is Simon's story, representative of a pharmaceutical company from France and Asgar, local auto driver from Shivajinagar, who share a two-day long journey in Bengaluru.

That twisted journey with a comedy of errors changes the way they look at life. What results from this goofed up journey is the heartstring of ‘French Biriyani’. 

With every possible wrong ingredient added by fate, it inevitably becomes a recipe for disaster. French Biriyani is set for a world premiere only on Amazon Prime Video on July 24.
