The Tashkent Files (2019)
(Released: Apr 12, 2019)
A political journalist Raagini (Shweta Basu Prasad) gets slammed by her boss for not finding a worthy scoop. She gets a call from an unknown who offers her a 'life-changing' scoop as a birthday gift. Raagini, who by now, has already been accused by her boss for posting fake news in order to garner more social media attention, starts researching about that scoop. The caller asks her to expose the apparent most mysterious death of the Indian history, of Lal Bahadur Shastri.
She goes home, does the research and gets it printed. This spreads and politicians get in the radar of public asking questions. This led to a high profile investigation committee called political leader Shyam Sundar Tripathi (Mithun Chakraborty). Along with few publicly prominent figures, Raagini, too, gets to be a part of that committee. With the 'war of narratives' going in that room, everyone has a different agenda/theory regarding the case.
