‘Masterpiece’: Why People Are Recommending Pratik Gandhi’s Show The Great Indian Murder
The trailer of Pratik Gandhi and Richa Chadha starrer The Great Indian Murder is out now and it looks promising. The trailer has piqued the interest of the viewers and this show is on our binge watch list. It’s exciting to see Pratik in a series post Scam 1992. The trailer shows Richa Chadha and Pratik playing investigating officers who have been tasked to solve the murder of a politician’s (played by Ashutosh Rana) son, Vicky Rai.
With such talented cast on board, we can surely expect a roller-coaster ride. The cast also features Raghubir Yadav, Shashank Arora, and Sharib Hashmi in pivotal roles. Helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, The Great Indian Murder is based on the novel Six Suspects by writer Vikas Swarup whose book Q&A was adapted into the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire. The series has been bankrolled by Ajay Devgn and Reel Life Entertainment.
The official synopsis reads as, “Vicky Rai is the cunning 32-year-old owner of the Rai Group of Industries and son of the Home Minister of Chhattisgarh, Jagannath Rai. Vicky Rai gets murdered in cold blood in a party thrown by him to celebrate his acquittal in a rape and murder case of two Shelter Home girls. Six suspects surrounding his murder come under the radar of the case’s investigating officers DCP Sudha Bhardwaj and Suraj Yadav of Central Bureau of Investigation. Vicky Rai’s case has also put an unintended halt in his father, Jagannath Rai’s political career which he tries to win by fair or foul means, even after Vicky’s death. The Great Indian Murder is about exploring several versions of a single murder, a story that Sudha and Suraj weave through their investigations.”
Richa Chadha, who plays DCP Sudha Bhardwaj in the series, said in a statement as per the PR handout, “Thrillers have always been an exciting genre for me – it challenges you greatly and stretches your capabilities as an actor. When I read the script for The Great Indian Murder, I knew instantly that it was a project I wanted to be a part of. There’s an intriguing story to tell here, and Tigmanshu Dhulia is a brilliant director who was there for me and for the rest of the cast to guide and direct. Each character in this series has an intense motive and justification for their actions – it is somewhat relatable, yet nerve-wracking. It is an exemplary example of a thriller series writing which only Tigmanshu Dhulia could have pulled off! Can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to it.”
Meanwhile, Pratik Gandhi, who will be seen portraying the role of a CBI officer, said about the show, “I wanted to be very thoughtful about my next digital outing and The Great Indian Murder and Disney+ Hostar seemed like the perfect choice. My character Suraj Yadav was a whole new challenge for me. He is someone who represents the law but never shies away from breaking it or mending it to ease his way. This grey layer and his easy transition between the dark and light sides make him special and very human.”
After watching the trailer, people are recommending the show to everyone as they think it’s an interesting story to tell. They are also rooting for the strong cast and have already declared it as a masterpiece.
