There are some things you want right away and some things you know the wait is definitely worth it. Farkhan Akhtar’s next movie, 3 Storeys, seems promising, to say the least. Just a day before the grand release of Fukrey Returns, Farhan Akhtar released the first teaser of a truly brilliantly made movie.
The film stars Sharman Joshi, Renuka Shahane and Masumeh Makhija. Not just that, it also brings back the Fukrey actors, Pulkit Samrat and Richa Chadha in pivotal roles. But, are all of them sharing screen space? At least, the teaser hints at a different story.
The one minute long teaser takes us through all the dirty and gritty areas of Mumbai. Mumbai seems bright and shiny on the outside. The inside, on the other hand, tells a completely different Storey. The minute long teaser walks us through a very typical Mumbai chawl or residential area and gives us a first hand experience of what it is like to live in cramped quarters.

On one hand, 3 Storeys looks like a murder mystery about how three stories at the three levels of the chawl have some connection. On the other hand, it also hints at a plot based around love and betrayal. The makers claim that 3 Storeys explores intertwined lives where secrets are revealed and life in this small community is not as it seems.
Directed by debutant director Arjun Mukherjee, 3 Storeys is co produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. The movie was initially scheduled to release on 25 August this year. Unfortunately, due to clashes and a delay in completion, the movie is now slated to hit the silver screens on 16 February, 2018! Check out the first teaser poster here and have an amazing Thursday!
