The trailer of Pratik Gandhi and Richa Chadha starrer The Great Indian Murder is out now and it looks so intriguing to me that now I just cannot wait to know who has killed Vikram Rai? This series produced by Ajay Devgn and Priti Sinha, shall premiere on Disney + Hotstar from February 4 onwards and is directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. Interestingly, this will be Dhulia’s third collaboration with Hotstar after Criminal Justice and Out Of Love. The Great Indian Murder is based on Vikas Swarup’s book, Six Suspects.
I love that the trailer gives out a bit of the film’s plot and yet steams up suspense and at the same time. It also introduces the characters so well and totally makes us look forward to the series.
It’s exciting to see Pratik in a series post Scam 1992 where he was so brilliant. Here he plays a CBI officer which is a drastic change from what he has done earlier. I’m also looking forward to see Richa as DCP Sudha Bhardwaj because she’s so good in every role.
Talking about his character, Pratik Gandhi said,
“I wanted to be very thoughtful about my next digital outing and The Great Indian Murder seemed like the perfect choice. My character Suraj Yadav was a whole new challenge for me. He is someone who represents the law but never shies away from breaking it or mending it to ease his way. This grey layer and his easy transition between the dark and light sides make him special and very human. I am extremely grateful to Tigmanshu Dhulia and Richa Chadha for constantly being by my side and helping me to interpret the character. Hope Suraj Yadav receives a lot of love and appreciation.”
Richa is also extremely excited as she expressed,
“Thrillers have always been an exciting genre for me – it challenges you greatly and stretches your capabilities as an actor. When I read the script for The Great Indian Murder, I knew instantly that it was a project I wanted to be a part of. There’s an intriguing story to tell here, and Tigmanshu is a brilliant director who was there for me and for the rest of the cast to guide and direct. Each character in this series has an intense motive and justification for their actions – it is somewhat relatable, yet nerve-wracking. It is an exemplary example of a thriller series writing which only Tigmanshu Dhulia could have pulled off! Can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to it.”
Ajay Devgn who produces this series along with Priti Sinha, confessed that he is a fan of thrillers.
“Six Suspects, as a book, intrigued and fascinated me greatly. As an ardent fan of thrillers, I am looking forward to The Great Indian Murder as it intricately deals with a common subject like class divide and revenge but with a lot of glamour. Collaborating with Tigmanshu Dhulia to bring alive this exhilarating thriller on screen was an obvious choice, given his phenomenal creation of some of the best thrillers in India.
To me, the trailer and this team combined is a reason enough to look forward to The Great Indian Murder. We’ll only have to wait till February 4, for the suspense to unfold!
