Main aur Charles (transl. Me and Charles) is a 2015 Bollywood crime film written and directed by Prawaal Raman and produced by Cynozure Networkz. The film is a fictitious thriller inspired by true events; it is told from the perspective of the Indian cop, Amod Kanth, who handled the case of the Indian Orgin French serial killer Charles Sobhraj who was known as the bikini killer. The film opened on 31 October 2015 to positive reviews across India. However, it was a box office bomb, collecting a mere Rs. 6 crores.
The film stars Randeep Hooda, Richa Chadda, Adil Hussain, Tisca Chopra, and Alexx O’Nell in lead roles. Through the narrative, we see a series of crimes committed by Charles and the story of each of his victims, who fell for his charisma but were betrayed by his serpentine nature. The man not just escaped several high security jails but also manipulated the legal system. In the title, Main aur Charles, the word ‘Main’ stands for the character of Amod Kanth. The film was warmly accepted in the trade for its impeccable direction, casting and background score. Apart from these technicalities, the film has satisfied critics creatively with fine performances by Hooda, Chadha and Hussain.
