I have always been smitten by Anil Kapoor’s acting prowess. And project after project, Anil has only been impressing us. Now he gears up to rule our hearts in the OTT space with his next film called Thar. The film is surely special to him, as it marks his son Harshvarrdhan Kapoor’s debut as a producer. Let me tell you, Thar is different from other projects we see, I say so because the film is said to be set in the western film noir world. It also stars, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Satish Kaushik, other than Harshvarrdhan and Anil.
Directed by Raj Singh Chaudhary and produced by Anil Kapoor Film Company, the film follows Siddharth, an antique dealer’s journey through a remote village in Rajasthan that has recently been rocked by a series of violent killings. As the local cop Surekha Singh investigates these killings he crosses paths with Siddharth. The suspense, mystery and thrill that follow there on is what excites me to watch this one.

Harshvarrdhan has a very unique approach and his choices of films are also very distinct. The film was brought to me by Harshvarrdhan and he was very passionate about the project and he played an integral part in this film coming together. The story strikes the perfect balance between gritty and slick, grainy and smooth, fast-paced yet nuanced. It is Harshvarrdhan’s first film as producer and I could see the passion in him from the word go. Thar is an experience and I can’t wait for audiences to watch it!
Sharing how the film came into being, Harshvarrdhan says,
When I read Thar, I realized right away that it was unique in terms of its mood atmosphere, and tone as well as in its narrative. I was aware that I was in a situation where I’d have to preserve to get what was on the page onto the screen without any compromise. With a film so ambitious, there was bound to be great learning both in front of and behind the camera for me personally. I believe that out of the few films I’ve done so far Thar has been the most educational experience for me. We’ve tried to do something different and are excited to share it with audiences around the world with Netflix.
