Eros Now has announced an emotional-drama, “Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa”. Shepherded by Buddhadeb Dasgupta, the film is a blend of dark witticisms and emotional discovery starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui & Pankaj Tripathi in lead roles alongside Niharika Singh, Ananya Chatterjee, Makrand Brahme, and Sohini Paul.
The official description of the film reads:
“Anwar, a clumsy private detective, takes a case in his rural homeland to find Anmol (Pankaj Tripathi) and is forced to confront his own romantic tragedy With Ayesha (Nikharika Singh). What happens next? Does Anwar solve the case assigned to him? Or does he get entangled in a web of his own?”
Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa chronicles the unintended journey of a detective leading him to a path of self-discovery. With a unique and engaging narrative, the film promises a beautiful and melancholy tale of a private detective who sets off on an interesting journey and by a quirk of fate stumbles upon his own past.
Expressing his love for the film and his role as the eponymous private detective, Siddiqui said in a statement:
“Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa is very close to my heart. He is a detective that thinks in a completely different way that cannot be comprehended by the common man. He lives in a new world of his own creation and follows his heart. It was a memorable experience to enact such an interesting character and am sure that he will find a distinct place in everyone’s hearts.”
Pankaj Tripathi who plays the role of Anmol, a familiar face from Anwar’s past, shared:
“Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa is a film that explores the beauty of the human mind and its intricate nature. I am happy to have been a part of this movie, one that touches your heart and leaves a smile on your face as you see it revealing different aspects.”
The film has already received immense love and appreciation from the critics after its premiere on 17 October 2013 at the BFI London Film Festival, followed by a screening at the 2013 International Film Festival of Kerala. It’s been seven years since, and the film will be finally available for streaming on Eros Now.
