Diving under the surface of the city and discovering the malicious events, Operation Romeo will keep you on the edge with thrilling twists and turns.
Talking about the film, Sharad Kelkar said, “The film has a very interesting concept and is very interestingly written. Mangesh is a layered character that switches between serious and humour. With Operation Romeo, I honestly took up a challenge because I don't relate to the character at all. Normally, when you take up a film, you try to relate it back to your personal memories, emotions or people you’ve seen in life. For this character, there was no reference point for me. I’ve played negative characters before, and Mangesh is a part of the similar world but very contrasting. With this film, I also got to work with the next gen and it was a great experience. I remember when I came to the city I didn't know anything, I had no professionalism but these guys are well prepared, they know what they want, where the want to be”
Talking about the film, Sidhant Gupta said, “Cinema isn’t just my passion, it is my only purpose in life! This craft for me is sacred, it’s given direction to my life. I wanted to be a part of stories that are unconventional and present reality in the most relatable way possible. With Operation Romeo, I got a chance to do just that. I mean, we all have had a date which went horribly wrong, but this one really paints a horrific picture of a true date fail. However, what I love about this film is that even in this dark and quirky setting, it manages to hit the correct note.”
“Indian cinema has entered the era of exploration and discoveries; we are seeing filmmakers approach causes with unconventional perspectives. Operation Romeo is one such story which talks about moral policing and I think it is something that hasn’t been talked about in cinema before. When I read the script, there’s such a strong message that empowers women that I was instantly onboard with it. It’s great that the film is now premiering on television, I’m sure the viewers will enjoy it.” added Vedika Pinto.
Aditya Sharma and Neha Kasliwal (Sidhant Gupta and Vedika Pinto) newly in love, enjoying their perfect date night when it is suddenly cut short when they are morally policed by two men. Who are these men? How will this encounter change the course of their relationship?
