Picture Thoughts Productions maiden project Bhindi Baazaar Inc. has finally set its release date. The film is set to release on April 15th; it will be a worldwide release. The film stars National Award winning actors or nominees like Kay Kay Menon, Pawan Malhotra, Dipti Naval, Prashant Narayan, Shilpa Shukla, Vedita Pratap Singh and will be introducing Shweta Verma, Gautam and Caterina Lopez. The film is directed by Ankush Bhatt and is set in the underbelly of Mumbai, between the infamous by-lanes where ‘Greed is a Culture’ and ‘Deceit becomes a Compulsion’.
The film revolves around gangs of Mumbai who have embraced pickpocketing as an art and a means of earning a livelihood. They use their intelligence as a canvas and their spontaneity as a brush to survive in this dangerous profession.
Bhindi Baazaar Inc. is the story of a pawn and his calculated moves to reach the other end of the chessboard. Revolving around vicious crime syndicates, the film starts with a game of chess being played between two characters; ‘Shroff’ and ‘Darzi’. Their each move unfolds the story and eventually the motive of their meeting. The story is based on the quest of a small time pickpocket ‘Fateh’ and his ambitions to become a MAMU (local area don).
The screenplay underlines the gritty politics, feared hierarchy, unspoken rules, authoritative commands, shrewd intelligence, crafty wit and cold blooded betrayals, within the business.
