Sonchiriya Story

    Sonchiriya is a 2019 Bollywood crime-drama, which has been directed by Abhishek Chaubey. The movie stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles. The movie set in 1975 in Chambal, the movie revolves around Sushant Singh Rajput and Manoj Bajpayee leading a bunch of bandits struggling to make a decision about surrendering to the cops. Sonchiriya showcases a small town ruled and dominated by dacoits where multiple gangs fight over the struggle to attain power. The film gives a glimpse of the glorious years of dacoits in central India.

    Story In Detail:

    The film begins with a disturbing close-up shot of a rotting carcass of a cobra being feasted on by a swarm of flies. Soon, when group of dacoits approach it, their leader lifts the serpent with the barrel of his shotgun and places it aside before mumbling a quick prayer.

    We realize that beneath their tough exterior, these 'baaghis' are desperate to let go their burden of guilt of a crime gone wrong. One of them even expresses how the pride of being a bandit is slowing making way for a sense of shame.

    The dacoits led by Man Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) are the mice in this game of death with a policeman Virendra Gujjar (Ashutosh Rana) hunting them down like a snake for his own personal reason. The caste, on the other hand, hovers over everyone like a vulture. The women ain't spared either. There is a scene where a female character says, "Yeh jaati sirf aadhmiyon ke liye hai, aurton ko alag hi jaat hoti hai, in sabse neeche."

    Sonchiriya is produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner RSVP Movies Pvt.Ltd. and is distributed by     Zee Studios Pvt.Ltd. Anuj Rakh Dhawan has has wielded the camera for Sonchiriya.
