To get to the bottom of the matter, Verma starts investigating the case further and finds that not everything is the way that it seems. Manas uncovers some shocking truths that might change the case.

  2. Waiting
    Waiting, the 2015 film is about some of the toughest decisions life can throw at us and about a heartwarming friendship, well-acted by Naseeruddin Shah and Kalki Koechlin. Tara and Shiv are Tara Deshpande-Kapoor (Kalki Koechlin) and Professor Shiv Natraj (Naseeruddin Shah) in this Hindi-English-occasionally-Malayalam (subtitled) film Waiting. They ought, henceforth, to be an accepted metaphor for strangers who really “get” each other.

  3. Omerta
    A riveting, if not nail-biting, character-driven thriller, Hansal Mehta’s Omerta does not bank upon the established devices of the genre. It employs a judicious, subtle blend of real-life events and dashes of dramatic licence to probe the radicalization of a young Pakistani-origin British national.
    The Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh story – the abduction of Western tourists in India in late 1994, his arrest and imprisonment in Delhi, his release in exchange for the IC-814 hostages in 1999, the kidnap and killing of American Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002 and his trial and conviction in Pakistan, where he is still in prison awaiting judicial review – is in the public domain. Rajkummar Rao – the protagonist in the movie gives the film its teeth with a pitch-perfect performance. He slips into the skin of Omar with conviction.
