A young IPS Officer Amrita Singh is handed over a special investigation from the past; only to discover her father in the center of this case.
Will she suffer the consequences of chasing the truth? Inspired by author Satya Vyas’ popular book ‘Chaurasi’ comes Hotstar Specials’ next series Grahan – a story that traverses two tales set apart by three decades but connected by one truth.
Actors Pavan Malhotra and Zoya Hussain come together as a father-daughter (Amrita and Gursevak) duo; while actors Anshuman Pushkar and Wamiqa Gabbi (Rishi and Manu) revive the old-world romance of the 80s in this drama-mystery.
The series also features actors Teekam Joshi and Sahidur Rahman in pivotal roles. Produced by Jar Pictures, Grahan has been directed by Ranjan Chandel with Shailendra Jha as showrunner. The 8-episode series is set to release on 24th June 2021 for all subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium.
With intense drama and endearing romance in equal parts, Grahan brings to life a methodical and nuanced style of storytelling that goes back and forth in time. It reveals how the answer to a present-day inquest lies in a bygone love story of Rishi and Manu and how their lives unravel as the story progresses.
Riding on the back of a powerhouse ensemble cast, the makers have effortlessly recreated the old-world charm with a special focus on the look of each character and the setting of older Indian cities. In the present time, the story shifts focus to Amrita as she tries to unearth the truth about the past, her father, and his link to the case that changed the course of their lives.
Talking about this project Pavan Malhotra said, “Grahan to me symbolizes many things – an innocent love story, a riveting mystery, a complex web of emotions, but most importantly it is the search for the truth. I have been fortunate enough to be a part of many movies and TV shows in my career, but this one is really special to me because of its strong narrative. The question is – what secret is my character Gursevak hiding from the rest of the world? It’s a well-made series and I think viewers will appreciate the story we have tried to weave.“
On the other hand, Zoya Hussain added, “Grahan is about an emotional turmoil when an investigation gets too personal; viewers will see the story unfold from my character Amrita’s lens. The interpersonal dynamics of all characters, the treatment, and the nuanced writing is what make it starkly different than any other show in the digital world. The way the story moves between characters while capturing real emotions is what adds to the overall charm of the show.”
