After delivering some notable performances in films like MIXED DOUBLES, PYAAR KE SIDE EFFECTS, KHOSLA KA GHOSLA, BHEJA FRY, TRAFFIC SIGNAL, HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD and AAJA NACHLE, Ranvir Shorey will be first time seen playing a lead role in MITHYA. Though he played supporting roles in each of the earlier films but his performance has always been appreciated that kept him pretty much in circulation. Apart from Ranvir Shorey MITHYA also stars Neha Dhupia, Naseeruddin Shah, Vinay Pathak, Harsh Chhaya, Saurabh Shukla. A satire, the film features Ranvir as a central protagonist who has Neha Dhupia paired opposite him. A Planman Motion Pictures release, MITHYA is produced by Arindam Chaudhuri and is all set for 8th February release.
RAGHU ROMEO and MIXED DOUBLES fame director Rajat Kapoor had the script of MITHYA ready with him for nine years. The reason he had to abandon plans for MITHYA and instead opt for other films was that in those days there were hardly any takers for a subject like MITHYA. A quirky comedy, which has an amalgamation of Bollywood and underworld told through a comic narrative, it has a brand of humor that has finally come to an acceptance amongst today's audience. It revolves around a character (played by Ranvir) who wants to become a hero and gets trapped into the world of underworld (The film with serious theme presented as a laugh riot).
Money, conspiracy, deceit, betrayal, lies… The Mumbai underworld is about all this, and more. VK (Ranvir Shorey) has come to Mumbai, chasing big film dreams, like thousands of others. When fate makes him a pawn in a master game plan of the underworld, he unknowingly gets drawn into a whirlpool of events that will determine his future. Then an unexpected accident turns the tables for everybody involved.
Now begins a chase that won’t stop at anything. VK is too deep into it now to step back. Unknowingly, he has become an imposter, an imposter who wasn’t.
It is rare indeed for a film to make it to the most popular blogs and chat sites after merely one preview screening. MITHYA’s praise spread like wildfire. Rajat Kapoor directs his most ambitious project yet, a comic thriller that will amuse as well as shock you.
