Directed by debutant Akshat Verma, writer of the cult film Delhi Belly, the dark comedy is the story of six characters from different worlds urban, ambitious Mumbai and its dark, neglected underbelly.
Kaalakaandi is a thrilling dark comedy that features the story of six characters from different walks of life. It is a raucous tale about life, death, karma, that barrels through one monsoon night in Mumbai. The teaser which was released recently has left us as surprised as Saif’s look in the film. It is on point in terms of quirkiness but leaves us in a fix. We also see several crazy versions of the actor. Sometimes he is either wearing a costume that makes him look like a vulture with yellow wings and at other times he is just driving in full speed like there are no traffic rules in the city. We also get a glimpse of him running and screaming his lungs out.
