Trailer of the movie “Pratidwandi”
In 2019, Saptaswa Basu had made his directorial debut with the film Network which was not huge box office hit but it had grabbed eyeballs for an innovative story telling. Now he is back with his second film as a director titled as Pratidwandi. It is a thriller that has been produced by Star Media Ventures, Pratyush Productions, Neo Studios with Kashish Entertainement & G7.
Recently the trailer of the film has been released. It is an well edited trailer that creates curiosity without giving away much details which is perfect for a thriller. The story revolves around the kidnapping of a child whose father is a renowned doctor played by Saswata Chatterjee. The kidnapper is a common man, a math teacher by profession, played by Rudranil Ghosh. The trailer also introduces Saurav Das who is investigating the kidnapping case and Saayoni Ghosh as a powerful politician who is also connected with the incident. Other than these four talented actors the cast also includes comparatively newer faces like Rini Ghosh and Maahi Kar in other important characters. The trailer does not reveal much about the story but it gives a hint that the plot has links with some medical and political scams also. It is too early to predict but looks like the story idea has similarities with 2016’s Hindi film Madaari featuring Late Irrfan Khan, though it can be confirmed only after watching the film.
Earlier the film was supposed to release during Christmas but as of now the release has been postponed. It is supposed to release sometime in January 2021 although release date has not been mentioned in the trailer. It will be thrilling to see the face off between the two heavy weight actors Saswata Chatterjee and Rudranil Ghosh in theaters till then watch the trailer of Pratidwandi.
