Khufiya, helmed by Vishal Bhardwaj, is inspired by Amar Bhushan's novel Escape To Nowhere.
Vishal Bhardwaj has unveiled the teaser of his upcoming Netflix movie, Khufiya. Starring Ali Fazal, Ashish Vidyarthi, Tabu and Wamiqa Gabbi in the lead roles, the teaser of this film manages to grip the viewers without ever revealing who they are looking at.
This teaser gives a glimpse of Ali without really revealing his face. Soon enough, a whistle and the visuals - a maze window and closed doors - build enough suspense for everyone.
Just then, people's worst fears come alive. This man, an intelligence officer, steals confidential information by making copies of them.
Tabu gives a voiceover in the teaser. She introduces this mysterious man as a 'traitor to the whole nation'.
In a cinematographic manner, Vishal reveals the title of this film along with the shadow of this scary stranger. A reflection of the last scene could be seen on the wall adjacent to where the man was standing. 'Khufiya' comes written right next to him.
Watch the teaser here:
Khufiya is a story based on Amar Bhushan's book Escape To Nowhere. The novel itself was loosely inspired by a real incident that took place in 2004.
According to the book, the head of the Security Division Agency, Jeevnathan was involved in leaking confidential information. A whistleblower suspects his senior of being involved with Jeevnathan and thus, raises his suspicion to the concerned authorities, which reveals Jeevnathan's scary truth.
While Tabu has turned a narrator in the teaser, it is yet to be known whether she will narrate the whole story of the film. Vishal Bhardwaj, on the other hand, is known to give various classics throughout the years in Haider, Kaminey, Maqbool and Omkara.
Skipping a theatrical release, Khufiya will start streaming directly on Netflix, which is also producing the movie. The release date of this film is yet to be announced.
