The double murder case of Noida that shook the entire nation to the core has been made into a feature film titled TALVAR. Starring Irrfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma and Sohum Shah in leading roles, the movie is based on the twin murders of 14 year old Aarushi Talwar and 45 year old Hemraj Banjade that took place on the eve of 16 May 2008 in the household of Dr. Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar. The murder case attracted a lot of attention due to the range of suspects as well as the negligence of the investigating officers. Previous attempts of unveiling this unfortunate event on screen earned a lot of resistence from the family and National Commission for Protection of Child Rights. Celebrated director Meghna Gulzar and Vishal Bhardwaj of Omkara fame have managed to immortalise this hapless mystery on the silver screen. Watch the trailer to admire Irrfan’s stellar performance.
