Stating that making a noir film was always on his wishlist, Director Vasan Bala shares, "A noir universe comes with its set stock of characters and conflicts that seamlessly retro-fit themselves in any time and scenario. As greed, love, betrayal, rage and the all important 'I have a plan' combine to engineer the thrilling exploration of Cinema.”
The film produced by Matchbox Shots will also star Sikander Kher, Bagavathi Perumal, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, Sukant Goel and Zayn Marie Khan in pivotal roles.
