Ribhu Dasgupta directorial upcoming film titled Code Name: Tiranga is an action thriller replete with stylized action sequences shot at various places in Turkey. At the trailer preview event of the film which stars Parineeti Chopra and Harrdy Sandhu in the lead, the filmmaker explained why it is important to have a great combination of action and emotion to make an engaging narrative for the audience. 

The story of the film shows how a RAW agent played by Parineeti, is sent to Turkey from the Delhi headquarters on a mission to protect India, and how some of her own choices make it difficult for her to achieve her goal. 

In the recent past, there have been several films with action sequences like Shamshera, Brahmastra, and Liger to name a few. However, the one that resonated the most with the audience is RRR, helmed by SS Rajamouli. 

During an interactive session with the media, post the trailer preview of his film, when Ribhu was asked about his thought on action films, the filmmaker said, "I think action without emotion is meaningless. Even action sequences are driven by emotion. I can show a set piece action sequence for 5 minutes but after that, if the story is not strong it will become boring. The audience connects with the character of the story so it is the emotion that has to be there." 

"In our film, whether it is the mission, the patriotic feeling and a hard-hitting love story, we have it all. That is the reason why it is a complete narrative," added the director who is also known for delivering action dramas like Te3n, The Girl on the Train and Netflix's original series Bard of Blood. 

The film Code Name: Tiranga also stars Sharad Kelkar, Rajit Kapur, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Shishir Sharma, and Sabyasachi Chakraborty among others. Code Name: Tiranga will be released theatrically on October 14 and will be available to stream on OTT platform Netflix after it’s theatrical run.
