It's intriguing, it is laced with some stealer performances and last but not the least it is set to raise some potent queries, well, I am talking about the trailer of The Tashkent Files that has just hit the net.
The trailer begins with Shweta Basu Prasad receiving a pen drive, which appears to have classified information crucial to Lal Bahadur Shastri's mysterious death. As she begins her hunt for the truth, the trailer is interspersed with speculative suggestions that point towards one thing - Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri's death is one of India's biggest political coverup.
Set in current times, we get to meet a committee which comprises of Mithun Chakraborty, Naseeruddin Shah, Pallavi Joshi, Rajesh Sharma, Pankaj Tripathi, Mandira Bedi and others.
Lal Bahadur Shastri's death was initially reported to be because of a heart attack but it is also debated to be related to him knowing whereabouts of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, The Tashkent Files, is a film which revolves around the mysterious death of Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. It is a fictional representation of the functioning of an enquiry committee that probes into the death of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
Lal Bahadur Shastri was the second Prime Minister of independent India and died under mysterious circumstances in January 1966 in Tashkent (now in Uzbekistan), a day after signing the Tashkent Agreement, which formally ended the Indo-Pakistan war of 1965.
The film is an addition to the long list of political movies set to be released ahead on the Lok Sabha polls this year after The Accidental Prime Minister, Thackeray, Mere Pyare Prime Minister and yet to be realised, PM Narendra Modi.
However, according to me, The Tashkent Files is one film that looks the best and I would certainly want to see this one.
The Tashkent Files is slated to hit screens on April 12, 2019.
