Disney+ Hotstar has dropped the trailer of its highly anticipated upcoming series ’The Night Manager’ and its one grand spy action thriller. Helmed by national award winning filmmaker Sandeep Modi, ‘The Night Manager’ will premiere exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar on 17th February, 2023.
‘The Night Manager’ trailer begins with a beautiful but deserted snow laden landscape where we get the first glimpse of an injured protagonist Shaan Sengupta (Aditya Roy Kapur). In a well framed trailer the very next scene is a contrast to the opening shot with guns blazing in a battlefield. And here the viewers are introduced to the antagonist Shailendra Rungta (Anil Kapoor), an arms dealer who has built his entire empire on blood money.
After this brief introduction, the trailer gives an insight of the series where a night manager of a hotel, Shaan Sengupta is appointed as a secret agent for a government agency who then gets into the inner circle of Shailendra Rungta by winning his confidence by saving his son’s life. While those close to Rungta are suspicious of Shaan, ruthless Rungta doesn’t think the same.
Moreover, Shaan also gets close to Rungta’s love interest who starts falling for him too. The mission starts getting riskier as Shaan gets close to Rungta’s secrets so much so that there comes a point he might have compromised the mission itself. Will Rungta discover Shaan’s truth or will he be exposed by him is something to look forward to.
Originally based on the 1993 novel of the same name by John le Carré, ‘The Night Manager’ is an espionage thriller drama that follows an ex-British soldier, who is now the night manager of a hotel, gets hired by an intelligence officer as a covert operative. He is tasked with infiltrating the inner circle of a secret and dangerous arms dealer who is also his lover’s killer.
Other than Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur,‘The Night Manager’ also stars Sobhita Dhulipala and Tillotama Shome in prominent roles. Banijay Asia and Highgate Entertainment have produced the series. Earlier, Hrithik Roshan and Manoj Bajpayee were set to star in the series but were later replaced by Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur.
