Having acquired the rights of the 2011 Spanish film La Cara Oculta directed by Andrés Baiz, Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films are ready to take off with Murder 3.
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, "At Fox we have access to great stories from around the world and are always evaluating the ones that can be adapted for Indian audiences. When Bhatt saw La Cara Oculta, he strongly felt that this would be the best fit to take the Murder brand forward and so Murder 3 was born. Marking the directorial debut of Vishesh Bhatt, Murder 3 is inspired by the Spanish language thriller. It tells the tale of the unraveling of a mysterious disappearance, in true Bhatt style. "Murder 3 is the 2013 equivalent of the controversial Arth, belonging to the thriller genre, which released in 1983. At that time the institution of marriage was deconstructed and 30 years later Murder 3 deconstructs love and questions its very existence in today's world of relationship crimes. Now that we have the official rights to the film we hope to do justice to it and take the Murder franchise forward," says Mahesh Bhatt.
For Vishesh Bhatt, Murder 3 is the story of the women of today. "The tagline — 'This Valentine's Love Will be Murdered' is exactly what you can expect from the film. It's unconventional and shocking, and questions your beliefs," adds Vishesh. Starring Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren, Murder 3 is scheduled to release on February 15.
