Rajshri forays into detective movie space

MUMBAI: It is no longer a banner that once made family dramas. Rajshri Production, renowned for movies like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Hum Saath Saath Hain is all set to take a big leap through its upcoming movie Samrat & Co. Produced by debutante Kavita Barjatya, the movie is the first detective film under the Rajshri banner. The movie has been helmed by Kaushik Ghatak and hits the screens on 25 April.

The film's unique and intriguing trailer was launched with great fanfare at a suburban multiplex in Mumbai with not only the entire cast and crew but the Barjatya scions as well!

“This subject is unconventional as compared to the films we have made at Rajshri earlier, so that whole mounting and canvas had to be different. The grey characters were the requirement of the story. I am happy that when we narrated the story to my father, he understood and supported me in venturing into this. Every character in the movie is intriguing and has some hidden agenda,” says Kavita Barjatya.

The movie targets the youth and is the first of its kind detective franchisee, wherein the very nuances of crime solving, human nature and the world of standalone private investigators will be presented on the big screen on a pure entertainment platform.

The poster and trailer of Samrat & Co were launched amidst the presence of Kamal Barjatya, Sooraj Barjatya, producer Kavita Barjatya, director Kaushik Ghatak, main leads Rajeev Khandelwal (who plays Samrat), Madalsa Sharma, Rajniesh Duggal, Smita Jaykar,Bhoumik Sampat, Naveen Prabhakar, Gufi Paintal, Shreya Narayan amongst others.
