Box office offers crime saga, thriller this Friday

New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) A film on sexual harassment at the workplace, another on corrupt dance bar owners and a story of the nexus between crime and politics - this week is dedicated to crime sagas and thrillers with "Inkaar", "Mumbai Mirror" and "Bandook" releasing Friday.

Sudhir Mishra wielded the megaphone to narrate the story of sexual harassment through his film "Inkaar", about an ambitious copywriter Maya, played by actress Chitrangada Singh, who works in one of the leading ad agencies and files a sexual harassment complaint against Rahul, CEO of the company, played by Arjun Rampal.

A committee is set up by the agency to investigate the case. Will the committee really be able to uncover the truth?

Co-produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Tipping Point Films, "Inkaar" is coming out with U/A certificate. Gaurav Dwivedi, Sandeep Sanchdev, Deepti Naval and Vipin Sharma form the rest of the cast of drama that has used "sex" 262 times.

Mishra, however, claims he has made the film for youth.

"I have made the film for young people. I address this film to the young people, they will come out and they will confront this - 'how to deal with women now?', and 'how to deal with a woman boss?'. A young boy has to understand that..." he said.

On the same day box office will present cop drama "Mumbai Mirror" that revolves around the rise and falls of police officer Abhijeet Patil (Sachiin Joshi).

The drama heightens when Abhijeet messes up with a very powerful man Shetty, played by Prakash Raj, who runs illegal dance bars and is involved in drug mafia too.

Shetty pulls a few strings and makes sure that Abhijeet gets terminated. But as the movie progresses, Abhijeet learn to play his cards wisely and thus changes the game.

Directed by Ankush Bhatt, the film also sees Prashant Narayanan as a police inspector along with Aditya Pancholi and Mahesh Manjrekar.

Raina S. Joshi has produced it.

Next up is political-thriller "Bandook". Featuring producer-director Aditya Om, along with Manisha Kelkar and Arshad Khan, it highlights the nexus between crime and politics and how gun has become an umbilical chord between the two.

It traces the journey of Bhola (Aditya), a boatman's son who becomes prominent name in the corridors of power. He feels that his ability to pull a trigger helped him climb the success ladder and attain power.

Going by the reports, the film does not glorify or condemns anything but strives to remain an unbiased observer.
