Arishadvarga: a Rashomanesque Neo-noir is Ranjan's recommendation.




ARISHADVARGA (2019) is a Kannada neo-noir that adopts a Rashomanesque structure to arrive at the bottom of a mystery involving the murder of a quarry owner-cum-film producer at his palatial house. The others who play central roles are the victim’s wife who is a film editor, an aspiring actor turned gigolo, another aspiring actress, and the chief investigating officer. Written and directed by Arvind Kamath, the film is set in Bangalore and displays a freshness in its approach that immediately sets it apart from other Indian attempts at murder mysteries and thrillers that are proliferating on different streaming platforms.



You can look up the film on Amazon Prime.
