When Kiccha Sudeep began promotions for his film, the 3D action adventure drama Vikrant Rona, which had director Anup Bhandari’s brother Nirup in a pivotal role, the latter was missing at some of the early events. Turns out that Nirup was busy promoting another release of his, which, incidentally, was also produced by Shalini and Manjunath Gowda, the makers of Vikrant Rona.

The film in question was Window Seat, which would mark the directorial debut of TV host and actress Sheetal Shetty, who had also written the script. A thriller, the film revolved around musician Raghu (Nirup), who sees a girl every day on his commute to work, through the window of the train he is on. He is hopeful of someday being able to confess his love for her, but then tragedy strikes, when Raghu becomes the eye-witness in her murder. But when he attempts to help the police crack the case, a bigger mystery unravels.

The film opened to very positive critic reviews, but the box office reception was, unfortunately, not great. The satellite and digital rights of Window Seat had been sold to Zee Network, which also picked up Vikrant Rona. Zee5 decided to prioritse Vikrant Rona, which came out in theatres after Window Seat, to time it for Sudeep’s birthday. Last week, it was reported that Nirup’s film would finally premiere on Zee5 Kannada on October 22, which was not confirmed by the platform. Shortly after, Zee5 Kannada announced that it would be on October 28 instead.

Beside Nirup, the film stars Sanjana Anand and Amrutha Iyengar in pivotal roles, with Lekha Naidu as a no-nonsense cop the most outstanding performer in it. A taut whodunit, the film had good music and performances from the entire cast.

While Nirup and Sheetal are yet to announce their next projects, Amrutha and Sanjana have a handful of prime films in hand.
