Nyodda, directed by Meghna Gulzar, is based on the Noida double murder case i.e. the murder of 14 year old Aarushi Talwar and 45 year old Hemraj, a domestic help employed by the Talwar family. This is one murder cases which shocked the entire nation and received sensational media coverage. Even though Aarushi’s parents were convicted as the murderers, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Bollywood has never left cases like this before, and thus Meghna Gulzar decided to adapt this for her third directorial venture. Written by Vishal Bharadwaj, this thriller stars Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Sohum Shah, Tabu and Avika Gor in the lead roles.
The movie was previously named as Talwar as suggested by her father, the veteran lyricist-writer, Gulzar. Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma and Tabu are quite known for their excellent acting skills but Avika Gor is no novice as well. She shot to fame with Balika Vadhu where she played the little Anandi. She was also seen working in other popular serials and one can confidently say that she is a brilliant actress. The film will revolve around the double murder case and will probably address all those unanswered questions.
The movie has been approved by Aarushi’s parents, Dr. Raesh Talwar and Dr. Nupur Talwar who are presently in prison. Interestingly, the film actually builds a defense case for the convicted parents. The entire murder and investigation has been narrated from the parents’ point of view. Konkona and Sohum play Aarushi’s parents. The music has been composed by Vishal Bharadwaj as well and there is no doubt that it is going to hit the top places in the charts.
The movie was shot in India and is supposed to release on 2nd October 2015. Be sure to book a ticket for Nyodda for this might throw a new light to the murder case.
