Hungama Play launches Season 2 of First Night Sleep Tight – its first original show in Bhojpuri; a comedy about a newly wedded couple attempting to enjoy intimacy for the first time in their marriage
India: Hungama Play, a leading video on demand platform owned by Hungama Digital Media, today released the second season of First Night Sleep Tight, its first original show in Bhojpuri. A comedy, the show in its first season introduced us to the newly wedded couple, Bisan Kumar and Rekha Rani, and their hilarious attempts to enjoy a disturbance-free wedding night. The new season continues to follow their tragically comic life and their hilarious attempts to enjoy intimacy while dealing with a family that keeps on interrupting. Both the seasons of the show are now available to stream on Hungama Play and all partner platforms.
Season 2 picks up a few months after their wedding, however, Bisan and Rekha haven’t been able to consummate their marriage, still. To top it all, a family situation forces Rekha to visit her family in another town further dampening their plans. But Bisan is determined. In fact, more determined than ever! He packs his bags and reaches his sasuraal to be with his wife hoping that getting away from his own family will probably give him a chance to enjoy the wedded bliss that everyone keeps talking about. But if his family was bad, his wife’s family is worse. His brother-in-law, mother-in-law and father-in-law end up interrupting him at the most inopportune moments. To make matters worse, his mother-in-law and wife end up taking a vow to not have any physical relationship with their respective husbands until Rekha’s three sisters get married. So now, Bisan must become a matchmaker and find a groom for all three sister-in-laws. Will Bisan and Rekha finally have their near-impossible wedding night? Or will their bad luck continue further?
