Shashikanth Gatti's gritty action thriller 'Ranchi', which released in theatres a couple of weeks ago, is all set to make its debut. The Prabhu Mundkur and Divya Uruduga starrer will premiere on 15th January 2024 on the CineBazzar platform.

What is Ranchi about?

The trailer of the film suggests that the film shuttles between Bengaluru and Jharkhand and mainly follows a struggling screenwriter in the Kannada Film Industry, named Deepak. Prabhu Mundkur plays the said character who is apparently lured by a crime syndicate posing as filmmakers in Jharkhand, only to be duped and assaulted by them. The rest of the story, one gathers, is about how Deepak retaliates and goes to extreme lengths to help the gang apprehended.

Another highlight of Shashikanth Gatti's film is the presence of popular Bengali and Hindi film actor Tota Roy Chowdhury. The 47-year-old actor is best known for films like 'Chokher Bali', 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani' and the Bengali streaming series 'Feluda Pherot' and 'Feludar Goyendagiri', based on Satyajit Ray's famed fictional detective Feluda. In 'Ranchi', Tota Roy Chowdhury dons the uniform of an upright police officer who goes after the wrongdoers.

The cast and crew of 'Ranchi'

The cast of 'Ranchi' also includes noted Kannada actor and director Suresh Heblikar, Usha Bhandary, Aravind Rao, Aarthi Nair, Lakshman Gowda, Sathya BG, John Navin and several others. Alwyn Fernandes & Sandeep Chowta have composed the background score of the film with Vinod J Raj and Manu Shedgar handling cinematography and editing, respectively.
