The first look from filmmaker Murugesh's upcoming thriller, Murder Live, which stars Vinay Rai in the lead, has been released. Sharmila Mandre and Naomi Willow will play crucial roles in this one. The movie, according to sources, which was filmed in England, was made with the latest equipment.

Director Murugesh said, “Murder Live is inspired by the English film Dot Com For Murder, directed by Niko Mastorakis. The plot of the film revolves around incidents between a psycho killer and four women.” The screenplay is fresh and modern, and it is cleverly written in the crime thriller genre. Hearsay is that the movie's protagonist is capable of staging shocking events anywhere on the globe using computers or the Internet.

“Shooting has been completed and work on the film, which is in its final stages, is going on in full swing. A single track and teaser are likely to be released soon,” the director added. Prashant D Hitesh Manjunath composed the music for this film, which has cinematography by Misale. Madan is handling the editing, while UK-based company D Creative has done the graphics.

Murder Live is a first-of-its-kind psycho crime thriller and has been produced by Dot Com Entertainment Limited at a huge cost.

Vinay says he always wanted to work on films that were “different” while looking back on his successes and failures. That is why, following Unnale, he rejected about 100 scripts that labelled him "the lover boy". He decided to do one movie at a time and experiment with genres. “I did not wish to fit into a mould. I reminded myself that failure and success are a part of every profession.”

Vinay is not from a filmmaking family. He had only ever watched English classics with his family as his only introduction to the genre. The actor says he survives on hope although he acknowledges there is no guarantee of success. He has faith in the upcoming generation of directors who are prepared to take creative chances. “I don't act in movies for the money. I engage in them because they improve me as a person.”
