A charming coming-of-age story of Pavan, an 18-year-old British Indian boy who brightens his mundane existence by fantasising about the exciting world of 1970s dance culture. Pavan is determined to live in his fantasy world of music and glamour and pursue the girl of his dreams while struggling to deal with the trials of real life. Boogie Man is one boy’s journey to come to terms with his escapist dream world vs his reality, while also exploring the struggles of identity and clashes of cultures that come with being an Indian living in modern-day London. With a cast that includes Bollywood’s Amy Jackson and JLS frontman Aston Merrygold, Boogie Man is touted to be the feel-good entertainer of this festive season.
