Ever since its trailer was launched, debutant director Abhay Chopra's 'Ittefaq' has generated a lot of buzz among cinegoers. Starring Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna in pivotal roles, the whodunit is an adaptation of Yash Chopra's 1969 songless thriller of the same name featuring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda in the lead. The film also marks the 10th collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar.
The 100-minute taut and pacy suspense thriller revolves around two suspects — an acclaimed writer Vikram (Sidharth) and a homemaker Maya (Sonakshi) — who have different versions about the events of the fateful night the story is set in.
There has been a lot of speculation over who the killer is, and, in a bid to keep the suspense intact, the film's makers had a 'no promotions' policy for the cast. They also launched a 'Say No To Spoilers' campaign that was supported by the big names of the industry.
'Ittefaq', co-produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, BR Studios and Dharma Productions, releases today.
