Synopsis – A murder has been committed. Who has been murdered? Why? Who is the murderer? For investigating officer, Inspector Ramesh Sawant, this is his 99th case! He is known to always get his man! How difficult can this case be? Set in Mumbai, India, before the era of cell phones, this whodunit comes with an engaging twist.
Madhuri – female – preferably South Asian – playing age 26 to 28 years.
A very attractive woman! She looks like someone used to a life of leisure. But there’s more to her than her demure good looks, so watch out.
Satyasheel – male – preferably South Asian – playing age 28 to 30 years.
He’s lazy, laid back and good looking, but we already know looks can be deceptive. He’s a man used to doing things his way.
Inspector Ramesh Sawant – male – preferably South Asian – playing age 30 to 35 years.
An irritating, annoying personality. You wouldn’t want him around for more than five minutes. His sharp eyes and interminable questioning can be quite unnerving.
