Mumbai: Zee Cinema is all set to air the World Television Premiere of ‘Bob Biswas’ on 30th April at 9:30 pm.
Bob Biswas is a story of a simple family man with a wife and two kids who works as an insurance agent by day and a contract hitman by night. Director, Diya Ghosh’s version of the mundane but mysterious Bob Biswas highly pleased the critics as well as audiences across the country. Set in the heart of Kolkata, the film carves a niche for itself by harnessing the elements of subtle dark comedy in a serious crime thriller.
The film, takes us through the journey of a simple family man who is the most unlikely looking professional assassin, who after 8 years wakes up from coma and loses his memory. An unpredictable man who has no recollection of his notorious past. But as they say, your past has a way of catching up with you. While Bob struggles to lead a normal life, he is approached yet again to go on a killing spree. He finds himself torn between moral dilemmas.
Talking about the film, Abhishek Bachchan said, “Bob Biswas’s character in ‘Kahaani’ left the audience spellbound with his eerie yet interesting characteristics. When Sujoy approached me with Bob Biswas’s script, I had not even seen the film ‘Kahaani’, thus my perception of the character Bob was limited. However, during the lockdown I watched it and I was truly blown away. Our director, Diya’s perspective of the character was definitive yet fluid for me to have my creative advances. Bob’s character isn’t very expressive and being the protagonist there are quite a few subtleties that needed to showcase what a cold-blooded assassin living a normal, middle-class life with his family would look like. I had to absorb the essence of the character to do justice to the audience. It’s a character that will keep surprising you through the movie.”
