Director Amrit Raj Thakur’s 9’o Clock is a suspense thriller based on the Maoist Revolution in India as its backdrop. The trailer launch of the film was held in Mumbai in the presence of lead actor Arun Bakshi, producer Gaurav Shankar, director Thakur, singers Priyanka Singh and Rani Hazarika.
Said Bakshi, “Maoists started to find roots in India since 1967 with a mission to fight against corrupt landlords. However, today the face of Maoist has changed for worse and today’s generation is getting destroyed because of this. I play the character of Naseem in the film who is a Maoist.”
Producer Sawant added, “There’s a difference between a Maoist and a terrorist which needs to be understood. Unemployment and indifference from the society are some of the reasons which promote Maoism.” The director added, “Maoism is an important backdrop in the film and this disease is spreading in the least developed states of the country.”
The film also stars Vart Singh and Raju Thakkar in important roles and will release on February 24.
