Having acquired the official rights of the 2011 Spanish Film LA CARA OCULTA directed by Andre's Baiz, Fox Star Studios & Vishesh Films are ready to awe Indian audiences with coming-of-age questions that few dare to ask, with their forthcoming release MURDER 3.
Says Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, ''At Fox we have access to great stories from around the world and are always evaluating which can be adapted for the Indian audiences – and having identified LA CARA OCULTA it was but natural for us to leverage our long standing relations with Vishesh films and their strong creative sensibilities to adapt it for Indian audiences. Once Bhatt Saab saw this film he strongly felt that this film would be the best fit to take the MURDER brand forward and so MURDER 3 was born.''
Marking the directorial debut of Vishesh Bhatt, MURDER 3 inspired by the Spanish language thriller tells the tale of the unraveling of a mysterious disappearance, all told in true Bhatt style.
Says Mahesh Bhatt, 'MURDER 3 is the 2013 equivalent of the controversial film ARTH in the thriller genre which released in 1983. Then it was the institution of marriage that was deconstructed and 30 years later MURDER 3 deconstructs love and questions its very existence in today's world of relationship crimes. Now that we have the official rights of the film we look to doing it justice and taking the MURDER franchise forward.''
Adds director Vishesh Bhatt, ''MURDER 3 shows the woman of today. The tagline, This Valentine's Love Will be Murdered is exactly what you can expect from the film …It's unconventional, it's shocking ,it questions your beliefs.''
Starring Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren aka Mona Lizza Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films MURDER 3, directed by Vishesh Bhatt is scheduled to release 15th February 2013.
