Talking about the show, Mantra, who plays the title role in the show shares, “100 Weeks. 100 Cases. 360 Episodes and over 7000 minutes of pure audio magic. The journey from Bhaskar Bose’s first episode to today has truly been incredible, fulfilling as an actor and enterprising as a creator. Bhaskar is created by some of the finest writers and technicians I have worked with. Asif Syed and Obaidur Rehman who have written some of the most memorable characters in the series including Bhaskar and Bikesh Das. Shadaab Hashmi who not only plays the endearing Bikesh Das but is also the BGM composer of the series. Manish Sharma who is our maverick sound designer and my team at MnM led by the associate director of MnM Talkies, the boss woman Shimona Mathur.”
Further speaking about the 100th case, Mantra adds, “The 100th Case of 'Raat Raani', is a binge series spread across December. A dark and mind-numbing case written by Nikhil Raj and Asif Syed. A revenge thriller surrounding a deadly female convict behind a high-profile prison. This character needed an actor par excellence who would leave the listener with a shiver down their spine. And we are thankful to Sandhya Mridul for bringing this character to life. Sandhya has always created fabulous characters and Raat Raani will be right up there in her filmography.”
Mantra, who is not just the protagonist of the show but the director and Founder of MnM Talkies concludes, “The story is unique and explores the spaces of thriller, psychological realism and you’ll get to hear some really great performances in this story. Recording ‘Raat Raani’ was an enjoyable process and I urge the audiences to listen to the show and shower their love like they always have. We're 100 cases stronger and we're ready to make another century.”
