With theatres remaining closed because of the need for social distancing to prevent spread ofCoronavirus (Covid 19), ShemarooMe Box Office is launching one more film-based over the top – OTT spectrum (OTT refers to film and television content provided via a high-speed Internet connection) on 31 July with “My Client’s Wife”.
The platform promises to stream some unreleased and lesser known gems.
An edge of the seat journey that keeps one guessing throughout, “My Client’s Wife” boasts of an ensemble featuring Indian cinema’s finest talents. Sharib Hashmi of Filmistaan fame along with Gulaal’s Abhimanyu Singh and Finding Fanny actress Anjali Patil head the cast. It tells the story of a married couple played by Abhimanyu and Anjali, and the crimes they accuse each other of. The plot thickens as Sharib enters the scene as an inquisitive lawyer. The film takes one on a rollercoaster.
“The plot is the superstar of our film”, says producer Bhasker Tiwari. “Not very often has this kind of concept been experimented with in India. It is an ode to Hitchcock. Also, in this day and age of “stay at home”, ShemarooMe Box Office is the best medium for viewers to catch it. Box Office will prove to be a huge opportunity for passionate film makers who don’t have the bandwidth of big studios”, he concludes.
Sharib Hashmi, essaying the role of a no nonsense lawyer says, “Watching a new movie at a screen near you is a blissful feeling. It’s amazing that ShemarooMe with Box Office will usher back this experience.” Talking about the movie, the Slumdog Millionaire star says, “Once I read the script, it was a no brainer that I’m all in, an added bonus was the opportunity to work with Abhimanyu and Anjali.”
Abhimanyu Singh, who plays the devious husband Raghuram, says, “The way we tell stories changes as time files. The fact that “My Client’s Wife” will reach a much larger audience on ShemarooMe Box Office than with a limited release fills me with joy.” He also adds, “I wish I could divulge more about my role or the film, but the lesser you know the better, expect the unexpected is all I say”.
While writing the character of Sindoora Singh, played by Anjali Patil, Writer and Director Prabhakar Meena Bhaskar Pant said, “My Client’s Wife is an intelligent thriller. The story is peppered with twists and turns and Anjali’s character is wickedly grey.” Excited about the film premiering on the Box Office platform, he adds, “We live in a digital world, even more so now. With everyone staying in, it’s a brilliant effort to deliver some truly “different” movies to people. I’m gung ho about the film coming to ShemarooMe Box Office”.
