Remember Satyajit Bhatkal, the director of Chale Chalo: The lunacy of filmmaking? The man who had a lucrative career in law, shifted focus when Aamir Khan invited him to help him out for his film Lagaan. Not looking back he directed Chale Chalo which was the making of Lagaan.
Now after a long hiatus, he will direct Bombay Lawyers, a mini-series based on inspiring legal cases related to corruption, crime, nepotism and social ills rampant in India form television.
Bhatkal said that the programme is a courtroom drama about real issues, real people and real conflicts, but in the emotional grammar of fiction.
After showing promise in his first film, this television series will definitely be something to watch out for.
