Naveen (Ace Bhatti) is one of those people that suppresses - he’s suppressed the little voices inside of him that have been telling him that something’s not right in his life, and he’s been doing it for decades.
All these tiny lies have accumulated into a life built on them - and today’s the day it all comes crashing down.
Naveen must now get to grips with the key relationships in his life that he bases his identity on. What is he, if not a husband, a father, a brother? He’s allowed himself to be passive too long, pushed around by the currents of other people’s whims and desires. He must learn to take responsibility for his own life and his own happiness
A Bonaparte Films production, 'The Effects of Lying' is a comedy with real heart, that seeks to bring a new, urgent representation of contemporary South Asian families to screens
Olivia Attwood: Getting Filthy Rich Series 2
Following the success of the first series last year, Olivia Attwood returns with a brand new run of the award-winning Getting Filthy Rich this summer. Each episode will see Olivia immerse herself in different worlds of sexual money-making and meet the people boosting their bank balances through the growing and increasingly creative sex industry. From Tik Tok, stripping and sex toys to dominatrixes and the burgeoning Girlfriend Experience market, Olivia will pull back the curtain to give viewers an intimate perspective on Getting Filthy Rich in 2023.
Films available on the platform from 1st July include nine Star Trek feature films including Star Trek Generations, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. ITVX will also be launching Atomic Blonde (2017) starring Charlize Theron, Bad Lieutenant (1992) starring Harvey Keitel, Battle Los Angeles (2011) starring Aaron Eckhart, Empire State (2013) starring Dwayne Johnson, Chicago (2002) starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Requiem for a Dream (2000) starring Jennifer Connelly and many more.
A brand new series for ITVX will reveal the untold, inside story of how one of the world’s greatest sporting stars ended up in Wandsworth Jail.
Produced by Finestripe Productions, Boris Becker: The Rise and Fall will feature exclusive interviews with some of those who know the Wimbledon legend best – some speaking for the first time - and other tennis greats, as well as previously unseen archive, to tell the story of how the three-time Wimbledon champion lost it all in a highly publicised bankruptcy trial.
Boris Becker: The Rise and Fall is a story of greed, egotism, the destructive power of fame and Becker’s contentious relationships with the women in his life. The series will build a character study of the German tennis prodigy from his earliest days as Wimbledon’s youngest ever champion in the 1980s, through to the present day. The story will be set against the background of a golden era for tennis - a time of hedonism, big bucks and even bigger characters. It was a perfect storm of media exposure and money, into which walked the 17-year-old Becker from a small town in Germany.
All American Series 5
Season five finds Spencer and his friends thriving as young adults on the cusp of real adulthood. This season brings its fair share of sexy, messy love lives, hard lessons learned on and off the field, fun college drama, and parties galore.
