National, 3rd May 2024: Within a week of the record-breaking success of Ranneeti: Balakot and Beyond, JioCinema is all set to launch yet another original series, Murder in Mahim on 10th May. Part of the JioCinema Premium plans, which made waves on April 25th, offering top-notch content across various categories at a cost-effective price, the highly anticipated psychological thriller stars Ashutosh Rana and Vijay Raaz in leading roles. The series is a social commentary that explores the chilling murder mystery and the underbelly of Mumbai, highlighting the reconciliation of a lost friendship between Peter (Ashutosh Rana) and Jende (Vijay Raaz).  Adapted from a critically acclaimed book by author Jerry Pinto, the gripping series is helmed by Raj Acharya, and created by Tipping Point Films and Jigsaw Pictures. It also stars talented actors Shivani Raghuvanshi and Shivaji Satam in pivotal roles.

Set against the backdrop of a gruesome murder at Mahim station, the series shows Peter embroiled in this sinister investigation. The stakes are raised when his own son, Sunil, becomes a suspect in the case. Amidst this, Peter and Jende are drawn into a world of secret desires, blackmail, and unspoken love as they track down the killer, confronting their personal biases along the way. With each revelation and twist, the series delivers an intense and immersive experience that delves deep into the complexities of human nature and the grim realities of the society.

Commenting on his role in ‘Murder in Mahim,’ Ashutosh Rana shared, When it’s about complex roles, I’m the most excited. Peter is one such character. Meri koshish humesha yeh hi rehti hai ki main kuch alag karun, ek alag look mein, and Murder in Mahim gave me that opportunity. Peter’s inner struggle amid the complexities of the murder investigation allowed me to add depth to the character. It is not just a profound murder mystery, it’s layered with so many significant plots that mirror the social stigmas aroundcaste, gender and sexuality, with rare sensitivity. That’s the beauty of this show.”

Vijay Raaz also shared, “The most fascinating aspect of Jende’s character is the various shades to his persona. My effort was to bring a humane touch to this character, which is evident in the investigation scenes, but at the same time, there is aggression on the personal front which comes out in front of his family. So, it was exciting to etch out the emotional arc of my character and bring an entire gamut of emotions on screen. Working on a show like Murder in Mahim is a rare experience. The entire team has put their heart and soul on this show, hope the audience will enjoy watching it.

A captivating suspense thriller that will keep you on the edge, Murder in Mahim is all set to release on 10th May on JioCinema Premium.
