November 10 will see the release of Deadline-Sirf 24Ghante, a Plus Entertainment's maiden Hindi movie, presented by percept Pictures Company.
Directed and written by Tanveer Khan, Deadline Sirf 24Ghante boasts of an unusual star brigade comprising Konkona Sensharma, Sandhya Mridul, Irrfan Khan, Rajit Kapur, Zakir Hussein and Jhanak Shukla (Princy).
The film is a crime thriller revolving around core theme of abduction. With the current trend of each Friday witnessing the release of more than one film, Deadline... also faces the competition with Rajshri's Vivah slated for release on the same day.
Quite upbeat and unfazed by the imminent competition, Mr Agarwal puts it, "Who says that films are not selling these days? A good film gets buyers any time. We did not even show our film to the distributors. We had three corporates who were keenly interested in presenting the film, and we went with Percept Pictures because their network is very strong. We are very happy with them," Mr Agarwal said.
Interestingly, Agarwal and director Tanveer Khan had to organize only one preview of their film Deadline Sirf 24Ghante to entice three corporates to pitch for presenting the film.
"Though there is nothing different in the film, it is how we tell the story that makes a film into unusual cinema", Mr Agarwal added.
The technical team of the film consists of Baba Azmi for cinematography, Dileep Shukla for screenplay/dialogue, Sanjay Sankla as editor, Bijon Dasgupta for art direction, Bhiku Verma for action and Jitendra Chaudhary for sound.
Plus Entertainment has previously produced two films under its banner, Akalpit and Salaam (both Marathi), which earned wide critical appreciation.
