The Broken News Plot: Awaaz Bharati News and Josh 24/7

Directed by Vinay Waikul and written by Sambit Mishra, The Broken News web series is a ZEE5 Original that focuses on two starkly opposite Indian News Channels, Awaaz Bharati News and Josh 24/7. Awaaz Bharati News is led by Amina Qureshi played by Sonali Bendre. Meanwhile, Josh 24/7 is led by Dipankar Sanyal played by Jaideep Ahlawat. Awaaz Bharati News is a credible and trustworthy news channel that believes in presenting the truth, thanks to Amina who believes in the ethics of journalism. Meanwhile, Josh 24/7 only cares about TRPs and ends up fabricating stories to stay on the top as India’s number one news agency. Between these two extremes is Radha Bhargava, a young journalist who has set out to make her mark in the journalism world.

Facts v/s Accusations

Amina’s Awaaz Bharati News believes in presenting facts, as it is, without any adulteration, staying true to their journalistic ethics. Meanwhile, Dipankar’s Josh 24/7 believes in sensationalizing news and making accusations just to earn some eyeballs. For Dipankar, it’s all about staying in power and minting money, while Awaaz Bharati News’s ethics have led them to suffer financially.


Radha Bhargava Joins Josh 24/7

When Radha Bhargava realizes that the power to tell the story lies with those who actually have the money, power, and backing, she joins Josh 24/7. However, she soon realizes it is not the place for her and returns to Awaaz Bharati.

Family or News?

On one side Dipankar is thriving with Josh 24/7, on the other hand, his family is falling apart as he prioritizes news over family. He loses his wife and daughter as they move out of his life wanting nothing to do with a man who prioritizes his work and his news agency more than his family.

Operation Umbrella

A shattered Dipanker pours more of his angst and rage into his news channel trying to unravel a new mystery called Operation Umbrella. As he tries to uncover this story, Radha and Amina also get a whiff of the story and try to uncover the truth.

Radha Bhargava: The Terrorist?

By the end of the season, both Radha and Dipankar are racing to reveal two different sides of Operation Umbrella. In his attempt to win, Dipankar crosses a line by calling Radha an anti-national, terrorist whose words can’t be taken seriously. Radha loses her credibility and even gets arrested.
