Our endearing Richa Chadha and Pratik Gandhi are all set to play the lead in the upcoming Indian web series called The Great Indian Murder. Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, a one of a kind director-writer who is known for his artful movies and shows, the show is based on the novel ‘Six Suspects’ by Vikas Swarup. It is a complete package of crime, thrill and a mysterious murder.
The full trailer of the show is out and as far as one can tell, it seems quite promising with a star cast of Ashutosh Rana, Shashank Arora, Raghubir Yadav, Paoli Dam, Amey Wagh and Jatin Goswami. Richa is playing the role of a DCP Sudha Bhardwaj and Pratik is seen in a newer setting as a CBI officer. The trailer shows that the two leads have gotten involved as investigators of a politician’s murdered playboy son, Vicky Rai, when his father, Ashutosh Rana, demands a CBI enquiry.
By the looks of it, the trailer seems very alluring. The apt lighting even in the trailer and subtle frames wherein nothing is being revealed even when too much is going on is another feather in the cap of this show’s preview. All we really know is that Vicky Rai is a despised antagonist. We see various characters with exciting personalities. Raghubir Yadav is seen with splitting roles, one of a Gandhi-an image and the other of a womanizer. We also see a song erupting in the middle of the trailer which seemed very off and a misfit to be honest.
The series has set heavy expectations on the minds of its viewers as well as for the fans of the famous star cast that it has. Hoping that too many actors and a twisting storyline does not fall far from the tree of expectations, we await this saga. This upcoming Hindi web series, bankrolled by Ajay Devgn and Reel Life Entertainment, is going to release on 4th February 2022 on Disney+ Hotstar.
