Netflix published the trailer of the film Raat Akeli Hai, a forthcoming murder mystery, featuring a star-studded cast with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte in lead roles. The movie celebrates the debut of Honey Trehan as a director.
Nawaz is seen in the role of a cop named Jatil Yadav, who is appointed to inspect the murder of a rich landlord. The minute he enters the man’s old home, it is obvious that there is definitely something nasty afoot and every single person in the family is concealing their own secret.
However, the kin of the man, who is murdered during his second marriage, calls it a coincidence, yet Nawazuddin smells a conspiracy.
After the interrogation takes course, he understands that he has to face several obstacles from a wicked politician (Aditya Srivastava) as well as his own senior (Tigmanshu Dhulia) throughout the investigation of the case.
Radhika, on the other hand, essays the role of a strange woman, the young bride of the wealthy dead man. The trailer also depicts Nawazuddin tilting towards Radhika’s progression of events and borrowing her inputs to work out and unravel the murder case. But much like the new Hollywood film featuring Daniel Craig named Knives Out, no one from the household can be struck off from the list of suspects, not even Radhika Apte’s character.
The producers of Raat Akeli Hai outlined the film in the following words: “The most powerful usually hide the darkest secrets. What happens when a small-town cop is summoned to investigate the case of an extremely powerful local politician? How far is he willing to go into the darkness to search for the truth? A mysterious murder where the only suspects are from the same family, with each member having a hidden motive. Will Jatil (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) find his way to the truth or lose tracks midway?“
The movie is sponsored by Ronnie Screwvala and is set to hit the screens on 31 July.
