Starring Manoj Bajpai, Siddharth Malhotra, Naseeruddin Shah, Rakul Preet Singh
Written & Directed by Neeraj Pandey
At first Aiyaary seems less seamless than it actually is. Where is all this leading to? You wonder at the outset, as writer-director Neeraj Pandey sets up what eventually turns out to be pieces of a jigsaw that fits perfectly into the mindboggling zigzag of India’s political conditioning in contemporary times.
It is very hard to point out plot points inAiyaary that stand out to build the compelling construct on corruption in military forces. It seems miraculous that Siddharth Malhotra, playing an army renegade, is allowed to mouth dialogues that openly castigate the corrupt political system. Illegal arms-deal scams are not only whispered into the commodious plot. The narrative screams in wounded agony at the dizzying heights of corruption in the highest places.
This is no mean achievement.
Early in the narrative there
For his newest film role, Malhotra is playing a military officer in the espionage thriller Aiyaary. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet Singh, Pooja Chopra, Adil Hussain, Kumud Mishra, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher.
Aiyaary, which means ultimate trickery, tells the story of two Indian army officers. A mentor and his protégé. The mentor, Colonel Abhay Singh, intelligence par excellence has complete faith in the system of the country. While protégé Major Jai Bakshi thinks otherwise because of what he has

Daya (Lalit Behl), after having a nightmare, decides that his time has finally come and inspired by the dream, decides to spend the rest of his life in Varanasi, the holy city by the Ganges River, to attain inner peace. He leaves his son Rajiv (Adil Hussain) with a tough choice; either to assist him on this journey or to let him leave alone, in a totally unexpected, for him, series of events that leave him with no other options but to go with his father to Varanasi. Rajiv, who is already facing
The film tells the story of two Indian Army officers. A mentor and his protégé.
The mentor, Colonel Abhay Singh, intelligence par excellence has complete faith in the system of the country. While protégé Major Jai Bakshi thinks otherwise because of what he has seen and heard in his recent stint in surveillance.
Jai Bakshi decides to turn rogue and this is what kicks off the story.
Abhay has 36 hours to rein in Jai while Jai sits on a secret that can bring down the Government.
From what we can see so far we are looking forward to seeing these two actors perform these very interesting characters.

Adil Hussain won the Best Actor Award at the DC South Asian Film Festival held on 10th September 2017 in Washington DC, USA for his outstanding performance in Mutki Bhawan. He said,” I would like to express my gratitude to my Director who guided me to be able to bring in the nuances. The award is for all of us. Celebration of the entire team of Mukti Bhawan, their efforts and above all love for the project.”
Shubhashish Bhutiani, writer-director of the film was delighted to learn about the award and expressed, “Adil is one of the finest actors in the industry, I am thrilled at this win and very happy for him. He is any director’s dream actor.
The story unfolds in three acts. When we first meet her, pretty 16-year-old Nisha (Mozhdah) is living a double life. Outside the home, she appears to be a normal, well-adjusted, Western values-oriented high-school girl who hangs out with friends, shoots hoops, dances at clubs and flirts with boys; she’s even unafraid
This is a film about oppression wielded behind closed doors. It’s about hypocrisy, mistrust, and the struggle felt by second-generation immigrants everywhere.
Twenty-six-year-old Indian writer-director Shubhashish Bhutiani’s nimble debut feature trails Rajiv (Adil Hussain) as he accompanies his dying father Daya (Lalit Behl) to Hotel Salvation, a sort of spiritual hospice on the banks of the Ganges. Guests are permitted to stay free of charge for 15 days, in the hope that they experience “salvation” in the moments before death (marijuana-laced lassi optional). If it sounds a little bit Eat Pray Love, it is – though Bhutiani keeps a fairly tight rein on former “famous writer” Daya’s divine journey, paying more attention to the knotty dynamic between father and son. In this sense, the film works more as a kind of reverse Toni Erdmann, with Rajiv finally turning off his phone and shouldering the burden of his cantankerous father. It looks beautiful too, with night-time
We have had some teaser posters but now we have a fast paced, flying look behind the scenes into the film! And all we can say is we want more!

This beautifully rendered Indian arthouse film, the debut of young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, enacts a subtle family comedy-drama that anyone who has spent time with an ageing parent could relate to easily.
Middle-class businessman Rajiv (Adil Hussain) lives with his wife Laila (Geetanjali Kulkarni), grownup daughter Sunita (Palomi Ghosh) and elderly father Daya (the Falstaffian Lalit Behl), a curmudgeonly former schoolteacher with whom Daya has, at best, a rocky, adversarial relationship.
Sajida Sharma and Sanjay Bhutiani produced for India’s Red Carpet Moving Pictures with a $165,000 (€150,000) grant from Venice’s Biennale College and a post-production package worth $56,000 from Busan’s Asian Cinema Fund.

“How can he possibly know his time is up?” asks his son Rajiv’s wife. Maybe it’s just one of those things you know when the time has come. Daya believes that a persistent and recurring dream means his death is approaching, so he heads to the Hotel Salvation in Varanasi in order to, well, achieve a final salvation. “Death is a process,” announces the proprietor of the hotel, and wonders if Daya is ready to start that final journey towards his own death. The rules at the Hotel Salvation are strict, and the time that Daya is permitted to stay is limited is fifteen days; if you die,
