Bandook is a crime thriller directed by Aditya Om (also the protagonist). The film releases in theatres on January 18th 2013.
Story: Bandook is a story about the nexus between crime and politics and how gun has become an umbilical chord between the two. It traces the journey of Bhola (character played by Aditya Om) from an ordinary boatman’s family to the corridors of power, how he realizes that the ability to pull a trigger is his climbing ladder to respect, acceptability and the ultimate lure… power.
The story of Bandook moves from an ordinary village struggles, to intergang strifes and finally the altar of elected power, the ultimate purifier. The rustic backdrop of the gangetic plain serves as an ideal foil to the story almost becoming a character.We see Bhola’s love (played by female lead Manisha Kelkar), friendships all tested in a ruthless world of deceit & violence. The film does not glorify or condemns anything but strives to remain an unbiased observer.
