It is the season of biopics in cinema. If Bollywood saw films like Rang Rasiya, then Hollywood too came up with the likes of Theory of Everything and Imitation Game in 2014. Next up will be actor Randeep Hooda's new film Main Aur Charles directed by Prawaal Raman. The actor shared a motion poster of the film on Wednesday. The film is based on the life and antics of dreaded serial killer of the '70s, Charles Sobhraj, as recounted by respected cop Amod Kanth who handled this notorious case.
The poster plays out like reels of a film, running into several frames showing a side-angle shot of Charles, gradually zooming out to a full-length one. With a cigarette in hand, Randeep sports a '70s look, complete with oversized shades, a two-piece suit and tie, flat cap and bell-bottomed trousers. As the poster rolls, we hear Randeep's voice over: Baago toh aise baago, ke uss pe movie baney.
The film releases on October 30, 2015.
