The poster for writer-director Raj R’s 8 A.M. Metro was launched by legendary songwriter, filmmaker, and poet Gulzar, who was also the winner of the renowned Sahitya Akademi Award, at his Bandra residence. The film, an emotional roller-coaster featuring Saiyami Kher and Gulshan Devaiah, is scheduled for release on May 19. Shiladitya Bora’s Platoon Distribution is handling the movie’s distribution.
Six of Gulzar’s poems were added to the movie, which made him very happy. The moment he read the beautiful script for the first time, he felt a little in his heart, which motivated him to immediately contribute enthusiastically to the film. He acknowledged this during the poster launch for the movie.
Iravati, a 29-year-old housewife played by Saiyami, lives a routine life in Nanded that is flipped upside down when she must travel to Hyderabad to care for her bedridden pregnant sister. She goes to Gulshan’s Preetam, a banker along with more going on than meets the eye, to help her overcome recurrent panic attacks, and the two go on numerous excursions together, both physical as well as metaphysical, finding comfort in one another’s presence. “But there’s a catch,” says Gulshan, who was immediately drawn to this seemingly straightforward tale. “My character presents a secret that can tear them separate and also the things they believe in.”
One of the project’s appeals for Saiyami was the brief poems she writes, which Preetam eventually learns to admire. The actress cries, “Can you believe I’m mouthing Gulzar Sahab poetry.”
Along with songs written by Kausar Munir and performed by musicians including Javed Ali, Vishal Mishra, Jubin Nautiyal, Jonita Gandhi, and the Nooran Sisters, the film’s soundtrack was composed by Mark K. Robin. The movie, 8 A.M metro is scheduled to open in theatres across India on May 19. Fans are really excited for this movie.
