“Inkaar” releases today
Sudhir Mishra is back with his latest Bollywood offering “Inkaar”. The film stars Chitrangada Singh with whom the director has already worked in two other films- “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” and “Yeh Saali Zindagi”. The male lead of the film is Arjun Rampal who is working with Sudhir Mishra for the first-time.
The film is based on sexual harassment at office. Chitrangada plays the role of Maya Luthra who works as a copy-writer in an Advertising Agency. Arjun plays the role of the CEO of the firm. The trailer depicts their relationship that slowly becomes stronger. Chitrangada is shown soon getting promoted to the post of National Creative Director.
The film concentrates on portraying the relationship between the mentor and his trainee. In a turn of events, later Chitrangada is shown accusing Arjun of sexually harassing her to which he claims to have been used by her for her benefit. The plot is interesting and the concept is quite novel.
Chitrangada and Arjun make a strong sweltering pair. The duo has not been seen together before in films and thus the audience is sure to have some interest in seeing them on the big screen. Chitrangada has been known to be a wonderful actress while Arjun has been working towards improving his acting skills.
Mehr Jessia who has already seen the film said, “I am very, very proud of Arjun. I loved the film. It is very different. What Sudhir has done is very different, especially coming out in a Hindi film, it's quite bold.”
Shantanu Moitra has scored the music of this film. Songs like “Maula Tu Malik Hai” and “Darmiyaan” are soulfully sung and have already been topping the music charts.
Sudhir Mishra is known to make unconventional and unique films. His films like “Chameli” and “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” have garnered huge attention from the audiences and the critics. To depict the plot even more truthfully real locations have been used to shoot the film.
Two real advertising agencies were used to shoot the film. However, due to the plot of the film, the agencies have asked the director to not mention their name in ‘location courtesy’. A source informed, “both the agencies requested him (Sudhir) not to do so as they did not want to be associated with the film. They are afraid that it might backfire.”
The film will be releasing on the 18th of January and has been credited with a U/A certificate.
