Yash Raj Films to release Rani Mukherjee’s ‘Mardaani’

Mardaani (1)Making a much-welcomed return to the silver screen in her most bold and challenging role to date, Rani Mukherjee sets a new benchmark in the emerging genre of female-centric offerings in Indian cinema, essaying the lead role in Yash Raj Films’ Mardaani, releasing worldwide on 22nd August. 

Produced by Aditya Chopra, Mardaani is a raw, gritty and edge of the seat thriller that marks a distinct departure from lauded director Pradeep Sarkar’s signature style of filmmaking. Sure to receive unanimous plaudit from critics and audiences alike, Mardaani presents Indian cinema on a truly international level, with the widespread, social malaise of child trafficking at the heart of its narrative. Helming the film is a powerhouse performance by one of Indian cinema’s most accomplished actors as a fearless and incorruptible cop. Joining Rani Mukherjee onscreen is a seasoned supporting cast including Jishu Sengupta and Tahir Raj Bhasin.Adding a further dimension to the film’s dark mise en scene is a haunting soundtrack by Shantanu Moitra. 

Synopsis: Shivani Shivaji Roy is an astute cop working in the Mumbai Crime Branch unit. Deft at picking up hidden clues and fearless in confronting hardened criminals, she is presented with a case that will change her life forever. 

Mardaani (2)When the mastermind behind a child trafficking mafia makes the mistake of kidnapping and smuggling outside the city a teenage girl who is like a daughter to her, Shivani embarks on an obsessive and relentless hunt for the girl. 

Fighting a war that has become personal, Shivani plunges herself into a seedy world of debauchery, cruel desires and exploitation. What follows is a deadly, cat and mouse game between a fearless cop and a young and ruthless mafia kingpin.

Setting a new benchmark in the emerging female-centric genre in Indian filmmaking on a world cinema platform, Rani Mukherjee champions her most challenging role to date in Yash Raj Films’ raw, gritty and topical thriller, Mardaani, releasing in cinemas worldwide on 22nd August 2014.
