'Ankur Arora Murder Case' trailer launched by cast and crew(Johnson Thomas)

 'Ankur Arora Murder Case'

The new medical thriller based on true events of medical negligence from around the world, by Vikram Bhatt's ASA productionsand Dhanraj films is all set to find a release in the coming months. Suhail Tatari's second film (after the 2008 release 'summer 2007') focuses on medical negligence in the case of  young boy ANKUR ARORA who comes for an acute appendicitus condition and ends up dead on the operating table. The film stars Kay Kay Menon, Arjun Mathur, Paoli Dam,Vishaka Singh and Tisca Chopra.

At the event , held at  a Juhu five star hotel, Vikram, Suhail ,Dhanraj,Paoli, Tisca, Vishaka and Vishesh Tiwari  spoke about their experiences during the shoot.
Suhail Tartari was heartened to find himself in the reckoning once again as director after a long hiatus of 4 years and was expressively grateful to Vikram Bhatt for having given him this opportunity. He claims to have had a wonderful experience on the sets with his actors and producers. According to him the script of the film written by Vikram Bhatt himself, is both realistic and inherently dramatic. For Vikram, who of late , was concentrating his efforts on supernatural/horror thrillers , this film was a new and rare experience. Medical negligence is a  topic close to most peoples hearts and Vikram, through his script and film has sought to bring it to the forefront of the audience ' consciousness..
Suhail Tatari, whose first film 'Summer 2007' was selected as part of the Indian Panorama section  IffI, had been hugely dissappointed by the step-motherly treatment meted out to his film which sought to highlight the issue of farmer suicides, by the producers. This time round he hopes to reach out to a wider audience with his high-tension medical thriller, hoping to give the audience a taste of something new and fresh- that's never been done before.

Suhail has had a bad experience with the medical fraternity when his father  had to undergo stent implants and  he was quite vocal about his expectations from Doctors who have undertaken the Hippocratic oath. He says, " I am sure there are many among us who have had bad experiences with Doctors who have taken undue advantage of our ignorance and benefited monetarily from it. This is not what they have promised to do at the time of their oath-taking. Hopefully this film will make a small difference to their conscience."

For national award winning actress Paoli Dam(better known in Bengali Film circles) , this film was a challenge because she plays the role of the lawyer ( for the first time in her career)who brings to book the negligent doctor who thinks he is god to his patients. Tisca, who was hesitant to take up the role of the grieving, justice seeking mother says she had to be persuaded by the director to come on board. She admits to be apprehensive about having to deal with the grief of having lost a child, even if it was just make believe. she was admittedly worried about the psychological effect of essaying the role during the course of the filming.

Vishaka Singh , whose career in bollywood saw a huge slump after her debut film with Mashoor Amrohi tanked big time, is looking forward to this film, to take her to a new careerhigh. She plays a doctor in the OT who is a crucial witness  in the negligence case, battling with her conscience , love and career. Vishaka hopes this film proves to be her winning ticket to further highs in Bollywood.

Te film also stars Arjun Mathur as a young intern and conscience of the film  alongside Kay Kay Menon , the doctor with a God complex  - both of whom were not present on the occasion of the unveiling of the trailer which looks quite intriguing.
