ZEE5 premiered its latest movie ‘Lahore Confidential’ on 4th February 2021 and it has gotten all spy romance fans excited and ready to stream.
The movie talks about Ananya played by Richa Chadha, an Indian woman who is instantaneously sent into a world of intelligence and espionage, where she meets Rauf, a Pakistani socialite who is simply a maze to the eyes.
Richa is seen as a nerdy person in Lahore Confidential but that assumption is limited just to the eyes as she is also an employee of Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW) of India. Rauf is a wealthy Pakistani socialite who knows all the who is who of the Pakistani elite. What brings them together is their passion and love for Urdu poetry. Rauf and Ananya are torn between love and patriotism, both very strong, gripping and intense feelings. Set in modern-day Lahore, the film opens with a birthday party gone awry with gunshots and a killing.
Karishma Tanna is brilliant as Yukti, a fiery R&AW agent and has the most quote-worthy lines in the movie. Her character is so charismatic that she practically steals the entire show.
The official synopsis of the movie reads, “The narrative revolves around a humble, Indian woman and amidst her mundane-routine life and her love for Urdu literature, she finds herself on an intelligence duty in Pakistan. A contemporary, elegant, and thrilling love story of two spies that will put them in a tug of war with each other. The film is based in Pakistan and has a strong sense of patriotism and thrill entangled with old school romance.”
Richa Chadha posted a clip from the trailer on her official Instagram account with over 2 million followers.
Lahore Confidential is directed by Kunal Kohli and produced by Jar Pictures, while the cast includes Arunoday Singh, Richa Chadha and Karishma Tanna. The film is created by S Hussain Zaidi and the oh-so gripping actions scenes are directed by Sunil Rodrigues.
Lahore Confidential is the second installment in Zee5’s franchise, the first one being “London Confidential” starring Mouni Roy and Purab Kohli.
