What role are you playing in the movie “The Under Trial”?
I am playing the lead role in the movie Under Trial. It is a very different role for me and the role is very grey. It is very different from what people have seen me in.
What is the story of the movie?
The movie comments on a lot of stuff that is happening in our country nowadays. It is a very interesting story. It is like a cat and mouse story between three people. I found the script very interesting and also very tight. It is like before it even holds you, it is finished. It’s a thriller of an hour and a half.
Do you think that there is a new trend in the market about films being made on terrorism?
I don’t think there is a trend but would most definitely say that there are some people who grab the opportunity and make a film. But this movie is not about that. It is more about the relationship between the Under Trial and the people questioning him and trying to extract some information from him.
Do you think the recession and the tussle between the multiplexes and the producer would affect the release and working of the movie “The Under Trial”?
Not at all. By the time the film releases, the multiplex issue should have been sorted which looks like it is being sorted out very quickly. I don’t think the recession affects the entertainment industry. I think it is just for saying that because of recession people are not coming to watch the film. I don’t remember any good movie that has been released in the last four months of strike hasn’t done well.
How can you say that the movie “The Under Trial” is a real story and not similar to other stories?
The director has first hand experience on the subject. The story is based on a combination of reality and actual events that happened.
What is the message that one would get after watching the movie “The Under Trial”?
There is always a message in a film. A good message is which doesn’t come very blatantly. Every person should be able to derive something different from the film. It is not important to underline a particular message in a film. This film has many messages and they are not underlined. A good film depends upon how hard one is trying to say and what they want to say.
