Bollywood actor Dino Morea is quite upbeat about his upcoming movie Bandra, which is due in cinemas on November 10. He believes that the movie offered a perfect platform to make his debut in Malayalam. 

While he plays the villain in Bandra set against the 1980s Mumbai, he refuses to see his character as evil. If anything, he seems to believe Raghavendra Desai is just a simple person driven by survival instincts to protect his own territory. 

"He's a businessman. He's ruthless and he won't stop at anything to get what he wants. He is unforgiving. He never shows any weakness. He has come up in life the hard way and he won't let anyone take his place," Dino Morea told OTTplay. 


Dino Morea is also very impressed with the movie's visual aesthetics. "We shot the old Mumbai portions outside Ahmedabad. Some of the buildings and the way they are constructed are reminiscent of old Mumbai. It was quite fascinating. I was even shocked a bit looking at them. We shot at real locations," he added. 

Talking about the movie, Dino Morea described Bandra as a tragic love story set in the underbelly of the Mumbai underworld. The movie stars Malayalam star Dileep in the lead, while Tamannaah Bhatia is the female lead. 

"There was a little bit of a language barrier (with Dileep). I understand a lot of Malayalam. But, we both communicated in Tamil. We got along very well and I had a great working relationship with him. He's a wonderful guy and a fantastic actor to work with. He makes you feel that he's part of the family," he praised his co-star. 

Dino Morea is also very impressed with Arun Gopy's vision for the movie and his storytelling techniques. "This film is larger-than-life and has a bigger scale. The emotional quotient is strong. People will appreciate how the director has managed to tell a good story in a commercial format," he added. 

Bandra is due in cinemas on November 10.
