Batya Becomes a Millionaire: The Popular Comedy Gets over 1 Million Views on PREMIER

The comedy Batya (Dad) is still in theaters, but as of March 18 it is also available to subscribers on the PREMIER video service. Since its release on PREMIER, it has been watched 1,194,547 times.

Batya is a film about Max, who grew up in the early 1990s under the watchful eye of a traditional Soviet father. As an adult, he yearns to understand why his father was the way that he was, so he takes his family back to the house where he grew up, unearthing childhood memories.

The filmmakers wanted to reveal the emotions of people who grew up in the 1990s and how the archetypal image of a batya shaped the generation of millennials raising children of their own today.
