As they say, success comes to those who work for it. Such is the premise of Hardik Mehta’s directorial venture, Kaamyaab. Starring some of Bollywood’s most overlooked talents such as Sanjay Mishra and Deepak Dobriyal as the lead characters, the movie offers a unique and unexplored storyline about the people who spend their lives on the sidelines. It is about the very people who make much of the movie, yet somehow are never seen or heard – the Extra’s. It chronicles the extraordinary life of Sanjay Mishra as an artist. The film was first screened at Busan International Film Festival, 2018.
It is set in the land of Bollywood, the city of dreams, Mumbai and is about the life of a man who is trying to find his 500th gig as an extra. The allure of the movie comes in the form of the unique plot that is a far cry from the typical romantic flourishes and chiseled bodies that bollywood is known for nowadays. While the trailer sets the premise, the conflict of the story is yet to be seen. Ruchita Arora heralds the music score. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Drishyam Films and cinematography by Piyush Puty, Kaamyaab will air in a theater near you on 6th March, 2020.
