Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt is again to doing what his followers love him for – giving us one other thriller, this time a homicide thriller titled Bisaat. The makers of the MX Original Series launched its trailer on Thursday. One take a look at it, and we all know it has Bhatt’s signature model of storytelling written throughout it, full with twists, suspense and a riveting plot.
Starring Sandeepa Dhar, Omkar Kapoor, Khalid Siddiqui, Jia Mustafa, Leena Jumani, Coral Bhamra, Ashmita Bakshi, Trishaan Maini and Tanvi Thakker, the eight episode sequence revolves round psychiatrist Kiyana Verma, who’s out to assist her affected person Radhika, after the latter complains of an abusive marriage. Soon sufficient, Kiyana finds herself caught in a mayhem when Radhika’s husband and enterprise tycoon Yash Kapoor will get murdered, and she turns into the primary suspect. What follows is a string of blackmails, revelations and a recreation of chase.
Speaking about helming the whodunnit, Vikram Bhatt mentioned, “Thriller, as a genre, has always captivated me as a viewer which is why I often tend to portray that on screen. As a storyteller, I enjoy cranking the tension up to its maximum and have audiences engrossed in the journey of my characters. Bisaat is a tricky game that involves exposés, high stakes and emotional wreckage that promises to have you expecting the unexpected. The cast has done a fabulous job and I hope to work with each of them again.”
Sandeepa Dhar added, “How can one say no to working with Vikram sir? His style of storytelling has so much panache and his narratives spin a twisted web of lies, deceit, and desperation that really shines on screen. This role required a lot of preparation and for someone who is always charged and ready to go, I had to imbibe a sense of acute calmness for Dr Kiyana’s role. I worked on my demeanor for a month before we started shoot and it’s been a great learning curve.”
Bisaat will start streaming on MX Player from April 15.
