Gone are the days when Indian filmmakers would just pick up stories from international movies and call them their own. Today, directors are wading through much red tape to obtain the rights to films they want to remake. One such filmmaker is Sujoy Ghosh, who is busy prepping for his next film that stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu.
But this film is no social drama. Ghosh is making a crime thriller, which is the official remake of the Spanish film Contratiempo, also known as The Invisible Guest. The film is about a businessman hiring a prestigious criminal lawyer to defend him and how they work together to find out what happened in the course of one night.
With an interesting story like this, the reunion of the powerhouse actors from Pink and a noted thriller director like Sujoy Ghosh, the audience is in for a treat.
