Akshar Media Productions forthcoming film “The Hangman” stars Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade and Gulshan Grover. “The Hangman” would’ve marked Shreyas’s debut in the film but the release of the film got stuck. Shreyas Talpade then rose to fame with “Iqbal” where he was featured as a debutant; however, “The Hangman” is Shreyas Talpade’s first English film.
Like “Iqbal”, Shreyas will be again seen playing an intense role in “The Hangman” which is set to release on 29th Jan.
“The Hangman” is an unconventional drama film based on the trauma of a man Shiva (Om Puri) who is subjected to social wrath and hatred because of his profession. Most of the people around him detest him as a result of which he is forced to live a lonely life. His only hope is his son Ganesh (Shreyas Talpade) and Shiva sends him away for higher studies. As luck would have it, an accident takes place and plagues Shiva’s life again. He prepares for a hanging but this one would prove to be like none of the hundred, which he had performed before.
