What awaits us?
The trailer is out and here’s what we get to know from the sneak peek. The quintessential murder mystery, Raat Akeli Hai is a story of a rich landlord cum politician, Thakur Raghubeer Singh being murdered. On the day of his second wedding, he has been shot dead. While his family considers it an accident, the investigating officer, Jatil Yadav does not think it is that straight a case.
The mistress turned wife of the Thakur, Radha is an inexplicable character, played by Radhika Apte. She is stubborn, feisty, and mysterious at the same time. Radha is one such character with different layers. As the story moves forward, her layers are unfolded.
According to other police investigators, this is an open and shut case with clear conclusions.
However, Jatil does not think the same way. He faces a lot of obstacles including one from his boss to suspend him. Neither of the hurdles stop him from investigating the truth. All he wants is the truth to come out. From the Thakur’s daughter to his first wife, each and every family member is a suspect. No one can be ruled out. A secret resides inside every member of the family.
Radhika Apte’s tweet which says, “The truth can either save you or kill you”, has increased anxiety among the fans. This particular statement reveals that there is something not visible through naked eyes. The ultimate mystery can only be solved by watching Raat Akeli Hai.
