Mumbai: Post the astounding success of Scam 1992, SonyLIV brings its next offering in the multi- starrer ‘A Simple Murder’ with a fine blend of humor and thrill, the series unleashes a riveting dark comedy over seven episodes on 20th November.
Manish, a middle-class dweller fighting hard to save a failed marriage. While hunting for an investor for his business idea that can shoot up his fortune, Manish knocks on the wrong door and his life flips upside down.
Directed by Sachin Pathak and written by Prateek Payodhi, A Simple Murder is a multi-strand dark comedy where greed supersedes a bunch of messed up characters and entangle them in a chain of events uncalled for. Irked by the monotony of their daily lives or in aspiration of securing a safe future, these people from contrasting worlds cross paths and risk it all to do the unthinkable to attain a better life. This series has been produced by JAR Pictures and rides high on Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Sushant Singh, and Amit Sial’s unparalleled performances, quirky dialogues, and a complete dramedy of a common man.
Also starring Priya Anand, Yashpal Sharma, Gopal Datt, and Ayaz Khan amongst others.
Saugata Mukherjee, Head- Original Content, SonyLIV “As a genre, dark comedies promise potential but are largely underserved in the OTT category. Post-Kadakh which received encouraging reviews, A Simple Murder is our second offering in this space and reinstates our belief in churning out differentiated content for our viewers. With an amazing cast and a nail-biting narrative, we hope this series opens to a positive response from the audience as well.”
Ajay Rai, Founder, and Producer JAR Pictures “Riding on a talented ensemble of actors, A Simple Murder chronicles the life of a common man, jumbled in a series of coincidences. We, at JAR Pictures, are extremely thrilled to collaborate with SonyLIV and add weightage to their celebrated slate of originals. The series was shot amidst the pandemic and I am thankful to the artists and the team at SonyLIV for their incredible support. SonyLIV has been churning out some great content back to back and I hope we are able to replicate a similar appetite for this one.”
