Mumbai: The trailer of Emraan Hashmi starrer film Harami released today. The Harami directed by Shyam Madiraju is one of the films that will premiere at 2020 Busan International Film Festival. Madiraju has also penned the screenplay with Shahin Khosravan.
The Emraan Hashmi in the prominent role tells a story of hope in the Dharavi slums of Mumbai. Hashmi plays the role of an English teacher turned crime lord who controls and manages gang of young, petty criminals who pickpocket common people in the crowded areas of the city. One of the pickpockets is struck by an epiphany when he witnesses the financial ruin of a family due to his actions. The rest of the story is about his attempt to make amends.
The set setting and the story makes Harami slightly similar like Slumdog Millionaire. The harsh environment presented in a realistic, gritty way and yet there is hope in the offing. The film seems to be full of emotions giving a hit to thought process back of the mind. Emraan Hashmi is here in a supporting role. He is a harsh taskmaster, but the trailer suggests he still has a bit of empathy left inside him.
The synopsis of Harami reads, “Harami is a hard-hitting, visually striking street saga of youth crime and broken destinies, love and redemption, played out against the vibrant backdrop of chaotic and relentless Mumbai.”
The movie also stars Rizwan Shaikh, Danshree Patil, Harsh Rajendra Rane, Ashutosh Gaikwad, Machindra Ghadkar, Sarthak Dusane, Manish Mishra, Yash Kamble, Durgesh Gupta, Aditya Bhagat, Starr Liu, Diksha Nisha and Adil Khan.
