Dice Media, the long-form content studio by Pocket Aces, has launched an army anthology series, ‘Bravehearts’ - The Untold Stories Of Heroes. Created in partnership with Unacademy, Bravehearts is a show about the families behind the heroes in our armed forces and how these heroes came to be a part of the national defence. Commemorating India’s 75th Independence, the series trailer had a prestigious unveiling before a global audience at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. The first episode of the series aired on June 4, on Dice Media.

Featuring actors like Shakti Kapoor, Anup Soni, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, KK Raina, Aadhya Anand, Varun Tewari, Anushka Kaushik, Naman Jain, each story captures a unique aspect of the courageous journeys of our heroes and their families. Be it a ragpicker whose dream is to serve the nation, a soldier’s young widow who is grappling with the sudden death of her husband, or a retired Colonel dealing with his past demons and his distant son, ‘Bravehearts’ is sure to strike one’s emotional chords.

Unacademy has been onboarded as the title partner, making dreams come true for these Bravehearts by enabling them to overcome the first hurdle in achieving their goal. Each story showcases these heroes cracking various defense entrance exams like National Defense Academy (NDA), and Services Selection Board (SSB), with the proficient training and mentorship that Unacademy provides through its educators on board. In order to join these forces, the protagonists are seen training for the tests using features like preferred language selection, one-on-one mentorship, live quizzes, and pre-recorded as well as live sessions, enabling the protagonists to crack their exams leading them to their destination.

Karan Shroff, Partner and CMO, Unacademy, said “At Unacademy, our vision is to democratise high-quality education for everyone which helps the Learners crack their goals. We are especially proud of all the several rankers who achieved their dream with Unacademy’s help. The Learners from our defence category similarly hold a special place in our hearts. Familiar with Dice Media’s style of storytelling, we felt it would be the best-suited way to showcase the magic that grows out of perseverance. At Unacademy, we strive to break the norm and with Bravehearts, we not only want to inspire but also work on building a connection with the learners in India who appear for various entrance examinations”.

Aditi Shrivastava

Aditi Shrivastava, Co-founder and CEO of Pocket Aces and Showrunner of Bravehearts, said, “Releasing India’s first-ever army anthology series is a proud moment for us; which became even larger than life when we unveiled its trailer at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. While most army content is about the war at the borders, we wanted to showcase the courage of the army families as they support aspirants to get into the army as well as learn to sacrifice day-to-day normal lives for the nation. Unacademy has been a strong partner for us for a number of years, and with Bravehearts, we are proving yet again that there can be content with high quality, high production value, and a big cast on AVOD as well.”
