Anurag Kashyap's next directorial is a mystery drama film, Dobaaraa, also known as 2:12. The actors are Pavail Gulati and Taapsee Pannu. The Spanish movie Mirage from 2018 has been remade as Dobaaraa. It is slated for theatrical release on August 19, 2022, and it premiered at the London Indian Film Festival in 2022.
Soon after its theatrical run, Dobaaraa is set to stream on Netflix. The streaming partner of the film was announced during its screening. However, the date of the release on OTT is yet to be announced.
Talking about the film, through the use of a television connection during a current rainstorm, a woman has the chance to save the life of a 12-year-old child who witnessed the death of a stranger during a thunderstorm that occurred 25 years ago.
Before the movie was made, Kashyap read the Mirage script and was moved by it. This is the first remake that the filmmaker has produced.
He told Variety earlier that he couldn't come up with an idea like that, but it is a good, fascinating topic for him to delve into. So he reasoned, why not venture outside of his comfort zone and try something?
From a global perspective, time travel and the joining of two time zones are nothing new, but from an Indian perspective, it is because people haven't seen much of it in popular Hindi movies. Pannu claims that audiences are now open to a wider spectrum of subject matter because they are used to witnessing all kinds of issues during India's several lockdowns.
The actor also said they are going back and forth by 20 years, and when they were kids, India was significantly different from what it is now in terms of graphics, technology, street appearance, and people's behaviour. The actor also said that the film provides a very clear picture to portray, making it simple to explain to our viewers that this is that world. This time zone, and that is what she means by that. Pannu is happy that Kashyap, who is usually known to take a stand against the status quo, is involved.
