With great promos and a quality music track, the forthcoming attraction of GRAHAN was announced years back. The songs were there on every countdown and it certainly kept everyone awaiting for the release of the movie. But the movie never did release due to some reasons or the other.
But finally it looks like the movie shall finally release, and it shall make the prayers of its producer, Jackie Shroff and family come true. But everyone is playing it safe by releasing it with limited prints.
The plot revolves around a girl (Manisha Koirala) who gets raped by a politician's son. And when the case comes to the hands of a lawyer, played by Jackie, the son manages to go scotfree thanks to the lawyer. And the girl unfortunately goes insane.
However it is only later that the lawyer realises how he was tricked into fighting the case, and he tries to make up for this wrong deed.
Anupama Verma plays Jackie's love interest, who also happens to be the daughter of the minister.
Now distributors still feel that the movie can get a life at the box office because it still has a fresh feel to it, and is also banking on the good music score by Illayaraja's son Karthik Raja to draw the crowds.
Another major factor is the new face, that is Anupama Verma, who shall be making a debut with this movie into the cine world from the modelling ramp.
Moreover the fact that there are no major releases in the first quarter of this year is another reason why this movie shall stand a chance of making it big. Intentionally, the the producers and distributors kept delaying the release month after month to avoid direct competitions with any of the big movies.
Bottom line the question is will the movie work inspite of this three-year delay or will it sink?
Wait and watch!!!
