'Marudhar Express' will raise relevant questions: Director
Mumbai : "Marudhar Express" director Vishal Mishra says the film is inspired by Hrishikesh Mukherjee's style of filmmaking.
Mishra has captured the nuances of day-to-day life and romance in a small town. Kunaal Roy Kapur and Tara Alisha Berry feature in the romantic drama set in Kanpur.
"The intention has been to make a sweet family entertainer that can connect with the masses, yet raise vital questions relevant to the current era," Mishra said in a statement.
"I am a huge fan of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and his slice-of-life films. This movie is truly inspired by his style of filmmaking. A fair share of the credit also goes to our producer Raj Kushwaha for his unconditional support," added the director, known for films "Coffee With D" and "Hotel Milan".
The makers of the film have released two posters of the film which capture the romantic moments between the lead pair.
"Marudhar Express" is a story about an arranged marriage couple who are under pressure to expand their family. It was earlier titled "Hum Dono Honge Kaamyaab".
Co-produced by Kushwaha and by Pramod Gore, "Marudhar Express" is slated to release on October 26. The music of the film will be released under the Zee Music Company label.
Kushwaha said: "It has been a wonderful experience to work with Vishal in my first production venture. ‘Marudhar Express' is very true to its genre of being a neat, clean family entertainer. Above all, it has been a passionate execution from all of us and that, more than anything, will resonate with the audience."
