Meet him once and your life will change forever. The movie revolves around Charles, an enigmatic con man and a vicious killer, and the lives he touched with his inescapable charm and mysterious personality. We follow Charles, who is literally evil personified, as he manipulates innumerable people to facilitate his jail break. The thin line between his victims and accomplices include a copywriter of an international ad agency clinging on to Charles for hope, a royal princess seeking adventure in an otherwise bland life, a young hippie girl hopelessly drawn towards him, and an innocent law student Mira madly in love with the dreams sold by Charles amongst various others - from a financial wizard, an extortionist from Haryana to a helpless prison supervisor. Bit by bit, the character of Charles is revealed through all those who encountered him. Probably the only person who interacted with Charles the least, Commisioner Amod Kant, was affected by him the most. We see the impact of Charles...

Dark Crime Drama that narrates the cruel and dark side of crime world or crime personalities has always been the fascinating subject of many Bollywood filmmakers and when the plan of making the movie on extremely infamous hiked psychopath who is known by his notorious serial murders and presenting himself stylishly in the delusion of being a celebrity comes in focus then its sure to be made into movie, 2015 release '' Main Aur Charles'' is based on the most spoken criminal of 1970's Charles Shobraj, his life which is not less than any thrillers on screen when made into movie obviously strikes the height of curiosity among the viewers.

Randeep Hooda in the shoes of Charles presented himself very perfectly with all those quirky style and suiting accents provided full justice to the role, a good role for an actor to prove his acting brilliance, Adil Hussain as an Inspector Amodh Kanth convince the audience with his ideal performance, in the team that had more good artists like Richa Chadda, Tisca Chopra and many more rendered their good act on screen, the flow of the movie which has non linear mode with slow phase narrative pattern seems to be much sober, movie with its timely perfect background scores hits the absolute pulse of the viewers, Prawaal Raman an ambitious director with his good narrative skills showcased his high class directorial talent, overall ''Main Aur Charles'' is more like the stylish representation of 1970's most hiked criminal 'The Serpant'.
