Main Aur Charles (2015)
(Released: Oct 30, 2015)
Main Aur Charles chronicles around the life of charismatic con artist and serial killer Charles Sobhraj who rose to fame in the early 80s and came to be known as the 'Bikini killer'. Charles' approach was to befriend his victims, mainly foreign tourists who moved across Thailand, Goa and Nepal on hippie trails, drug them and steal their passports.
In the first ten minutes of the film, we learn about Sobhraj's (Randeep Hooda) sly escape from Thailand after killing one tourist who is found dead ashore.
From there, the film picks up the story of Sobhraj's infamous 1986 jail break from Delhi. His co-conspirators in the jail break, Robert(Alex O Nell), a jail-mate from London who is caught for drug peddling and a young criminal law student Meera Sharma (Richa Chaddha) are seen spilling their story of meeting Charles.
Inspector Amod Kanth (Adil Hussain) is disgusted with the attitude of the media of making Sobhraj a cult hero instead of a villain, Kanth is seen venting out frustrations even when his wife (Tisca Chopra) questions about Charles' talked-about intelligence.
Eventually, the story is a cat and mouse chase of Sobhraj and Kanth.
