Courtroom dramas have always made for a great watch. The suspense, thrill and gripping storyline is what that keeps us hooked. Bringing one such case to television screens, &pictures, Naye India Ka Blockbuster Movie Channel showcases the World Television Premiere of ‘Ankur Arora Murder Case’ on Thursday, December 15th, 2016 at 8 PM. Written by Vikram Bhatt and directed by Suhail Tatari, the film is based on a real life medical negligence case.
“Medical negligence is a reality and we must arm ourselves to fight against it.” – Tisca Chopra
Actress Tisca Chopra commented, “I almost said no to this film because it is a zone no one wants to delve into. A child's death is the worst nightmare. I didn’t prepare for it, how do I prepare for a role in which a mother loses her child? But once I started filming, I felt it was necessary to tell the story. Somebody's story was being told through me and that pushed me to perform even better. I used to feel deep pain even after the shoot was over. It is a challenging role and the film intended to convey a crucial message. Medical negligence is a reality and we must arm ourselves to fight against it.”
Adding to it, “This is one such story of a brave mother. With Ankur Arora Murder Case coming on &pictures, I hope more people get to this gut wrenching tale of the underdog versus the rich and powerful. And how conviction can win the battle."
Kay Kay Menon, who plays the surgeon in the film says, “This has been an important film. Medical profession is essentially a life-saving one, thereby making the receiver extremely vulnerable and ready to plunge into complete trustworthiness akin to the faith in the Almighty. I play a surgeon whose stature is 'deified' and whose ability is unquestionably the best. Along with this, he embodies the insecurities of being in such an exalted position and hence is a personification of the malaise of medical negligence. I am happy that the film is being aired on &pictures which would enable it to reach a wider audience and give out the desired message.”
The film starts with an eight-year old boy, Ankur Arora, being treated by Dr. Asthana (Kay Kay Menon), the chief surgeon of the hospital. Due to his carelessness, Ankur loses his life during a minor operation. The story takes a turn when Ankur’s mother Nandita (Tisca Chopra), courageously resorts to the court of law and starts her fight for justice. Lawyer Kajori (Paoli Dam) unleashes a battle against the influential Dr. Asthana, only to find everything going against them.
Will Ankur’s mother get justice or will the influential win over the righteous?
