&pictures’ Saturday Premiere Party presents the world television premiere of Abhishek Bachchan starrer ‘Bob Biswas’ on 11th June at 10 pm.
Directed by debutant director Diya Annapurna Ghosh, the film stars Abhishek Bachchan and Chitrangada Singh in lead roles. The plot wavers around Bob Biswas, as a serial killer who has forgotten everything about his terrifying profession owing to his memory loss. The film showcases the conscience crisis where Bob constantly finds himself in a dilemma of profession versus morality portraying great depth of his existential angst. He tries to reconnect with his wife and children. However, he is once again embroiled in his former job as a cold-blooded serial killer. What follows is a web of murder, crime, and conspiracies.
Talking about the character, Abhishek Bachchan said, “Bob Biswas is a carefully written character, the complexities of living dual life as a family man and a hitman were mindfully sketched out. We had thorough discussions on how to make Bob look unsuspicious and as regular as possible. Even though the film was set in Kolkata and Bob being a local guy, we decided against him having an accent because to be real, having lived in Mumbai all my life, I do not have a Marathi accent so why should Bob. This attention to detail makes Bob Biswas a memorable and lifelike character. And the world we built for Bob supported his alter egos perfectly.”
Watch the premiere of Bob Biswas on 11th June at 10 pm only on &pictures.
