Mumbai, Feb 4 (IANS) Money, conspiracy, deceit, betrayal, lies - Rajat Kapoor's third directorial venture 'Mithya' is about all this. Releasing Friday, the film is set in Mumbai's underworld.
After donning the director's cap for feel-good film 'Raghu Romeo' and about wife-swapping 'Mixed Doubles', Kapoor now trains his camera on crime in the film inspired by Indian mythology.
Kapoor once read somewhere about a conversation between Lord Vishnu and Narad where after much persuasion, Vishnu explains the meaning of Maya to the latter. It was from there that he got the inspiration for the script of this comic thriller.
He teams up with Naseeruddin Shah, Ranvir Shorey and Neha Dhupia for the movie.
The story revolves around VK (Ranvir), who like thousands of others comes to Mumbai chasing big film dreams. But fate has something else in store - instead of entering glitzy and glamorous filmdom, he ends up trapped in Mumbai's infamous murky underworld.
Fate makes him a pawn in a master game plan of the underworld, and he unknowingly gets drawn into a whirlpool of events that casts a shadow on his future.
However, an unexpected accident turns the tables for everybody involved in the plan. Now begins a chase that won't stop at anything. VK is too deep into it now to step back because he has become an impostor.
This is Kapoor's most ambitious project yet, a comic thriller that will amuse as well as shock moviegoers.
