The trailer of the Bollywood movie Harami featuring Emraan Hashmi has released. The movie is slated to premiere at the 2020 Busan International Film Festival. The Shyam Madiraju directorial is a billed as a story of hope and redemption set in the slums of Mumbai.
Emraan Hashmi plays the role of an English teacher turned crime lord who operates a gang of young, petty criminals who pickpocket common people in the crowded areas of the city. One of the pickpockets is struck by an epiphany when he witnesses the financial ruin of a family due to his actions. The rest of the story is about his attempt to make amends.
Harami bears obvious similarities with Slumdog Millionaire. The harsh environment presented in a realistic, gritty way and yet there is hope in the offing. The film seems like an uncomfortable yet essential watch. Emraan Hashmi is here in a supporting role. He is a harsh taskmaster, but the trailer suggests he still has a tinge of empathy left inside him.
The synopsis of Harami reads, “Harami is a hard-hitting, visually striking street saga of youth crime and broken destinies, love and redemption, played out against the vibrant backdrop of chaotic and relentless Mumbai.”
The movie cast includes Rizwan Shaikh, Danshree Patil, Harsh Rajendra Rane, Ashutosh Gaikwad, Machindra Ghadkar, Sarthak Dusane, Manish Mishra, Yash Kamble, Durgesh Gupta, Aditya Bhagat, Starr Liu, Diksha Nisha and Adil Khan.
