“Kadak Singh” is set for a direct-to-digital release on ZEE5, the streamer announced on Thursday.
Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury of “Pink” and “Lost” fame, the upcoming movie is billed as an engaging thriller filled with mystery and suspense.
”Kadak Singh” follows the perplexing journey of AK Shrivastav, played by Pankaj Tripathi, as he battles retrograde amnesia, uncovering a web of conflicting narratives from his past. It also stars Sanjana Sanghi.
”Amidst the process of piecing together his life, the film delves into his quest to expose the truth behind a significant financial crime,” read the official synopsis.
Calling ”Kadak Singh” a special film, Chowdhury said the film talks about the responsibility of one government official towards the common people.
”Pankaj Tripathi and Sanjana Sanghi have done a fabulous job at portraying this complex father-daughter story. I was in a paradise full of great actors including Parvathy and Jaya Ahsan and collaborators where each one of them has pushed the boundary to deliver a terrific thriller,” the director said in a statement.
“It is also about a dysfunctional family coming on their own and becoming functional after a series of events leading to a rollercoaster of emotions. I hope that the film enriches people as it is a commentary on society,” he said.
