The makers of Murder 3 have acquired the official rights of the 2011 Spanish Film La Cara Oculta that was directed by Andrés Baiz.
The movie also marks the directorial debut of producer Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Vishesh and stars Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Pakistan import Sara Loren.
Heavily inspired by the Spanish language thriller, Murder 3 is being produced by Vishesh Films and Fox Studio and tells the tale of the unraveling of a mysterious disappearance, all told in true Bhatt style.
“Murder 3 is the 2013 equivalent of the controversial Arth in the thriller genre which released in 1983. Then it was the institution of marriage that was deconstructed and 30 years later Murder 3 deconstructs love and questions its very existence in today’s world of relationship crimes,” says Mahesh Bhatt.
Adds director Vishesh Bhatt, “Murder 3 shows the woman of today. The tagline— This Valentine’s Love Will be Murdered — is exactly what you can expect from the film …It’s unconventional, it’s shocking ,it questions your beliefs.”
The 2011 film Murder 2 was also said to be a copy of a Korean film called The Chaser (2008).
