Mumbai: Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar’s multi-starrer “Taish”, featuring Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Jim Sarbh and Harshvardhan Rane, is set to be released on ZEE5 on October 29, the makers announced on Monday. Billed as a revenge drama, “Taish” is Nambiar’s fifth directorial feature after “Shaitan”, “David”, “Wazir” and “Solo”. The director said the film is a test of human emotions and perseverance to fight all odds. “It is a revenge drama that surrounds two families and an incident that ignites a storm. With love and revenge as a strong motif, the story will take you through an emotional wild ride. “This has been a passion project from the word go and I really hope the audience will acknowledge our labour of hard work,” Nambiar said in a statement. Samrat said all the characters in the film are extremely passionate, something which will reflect on screen.
Sarbh described the film as a “thrilling investigation of male relationships”. “Their strength and depth, on one hand, and the cycles of abuse, violence, and deep-seated helplessness, on another,” the “Sanju” actor said. Rane, who made his Bollywood debut with the 2016 romance drama “Sanam Teri Kasam”, described the film as a “wild ride”.
Kharbanda said “Taish” was one of the most passionate projects she had worked on with an extremely talented set of co-actors. “The millennials will absolutely relate to the story, everyone has been to a wedding that has had its fair share of drama and madness. Relationships will be tested and trust will be broken,” the “Housefull 4” actor added.
