Here’s the first look poster of Anurag Kashyap’s Shaitan:
‘Shaitan’ is the story is about Amy – Amrita Mathur. She is a 17 year old and has all the teenage angst and rebel attitude that go with that age. Amy makes some new friends in Bombay- the ultra rich KC and gang. One night of living on the edge ends up with them brushing against the law. A cop blackmails them to cover up the case. In order to pay up Amy stages her own kidnap with help from KC and gang. A simple plan which goes completely haywire forms the rest of the story. Intertwined with this we have a story of a cop – Tavde; who is put on the case to track Amy and the others. The cop is forced to deal with a personal crisis while he is on the case. How he manages to resolve it and simultaneously crack the case carries the story forward.
This sounds just like a rehashed version of Anurag’s controversial thriller, Paanch. Old wine in a new bottle? There’s also an unofficial trailer of ‘Shaitan’ doing the rounds on the internet.
Directed by Bijoy Nambiar, ‘Shaitan’ stars Kalki Koechlin, Jackie Shroff, Shiv Pandit, Rajeev Khandelwal, Simran Sawhney, Shelly Skandrani and Rajat Barmecha.
