It is a complex game of three psychotic criminals on a murder trail and an individual's way through the maze of events.
It's time that the cult status of Bollywood as the only source of quality Hindi Cinema is being challenged by the new wave of independent filmmakers, who are passionately bringing out-of-the-box thinking and modern professionalism to the table. Here comes such a venture called STATION by critically recognized writer and director, Bangalore-based Saad Khan and the venture capitalist-turned-producer, Sumit Ghosh. The theme of Station The Film focuses on crime and its consequences, spun in a riveting plot and characters driven by it. The story begins when a deal has to go down and three assassins have to take charge. The chosen action's hot spot is an abandoned railway Station which is 40 kilometers away from an unidentified town. However, Station is no run-of-the-mill story of a chase, encounters, and escapes it is a complex game of three psychotic criminals on a murder trail and an individual's way through the maze of events. What transpires after the trio reaches the Station is going to be an interesting watch.
From the Trailer, Station is about crime, lust, deceit, retaliation, exploring the darkest of human emotions. Saad Khan first shot to limelight with the screening of his short film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008. He brings the same energy into Station The Film in the form of a well-paced and entertaining thriller. The bigger surprise comes from the all-new débutant cast, primarily from Bangalore. In most cases, it is hard to gauge that it is their first stint as actors. The performances of Kanika Batra, Siddhanth K.S., Sameer Kevin Roy, Hardik Sha, and Rahul Dev Shetty are particularly noteworthy.
The makers have not left a stone unturned in putting their creativity on to celluloid. The RED MX camera has created the effect the crew wanted. In addition, the offbeat, characteristically refreshing background score in contemporary pop, rock, jazz, and metal adds an urban feel to the movie.
Overall, Station is going to be a good refreshing watch - a film with a defined story line!
