Shab which means ‘The night’, set in the cosmopolitan city of Delhi, is a story of people coming from different walks of life, some in search of love and some towards the realization of their dreams. It is the story of how destiny and the city shapes their lives.
Onir, the director known for his hard- hitting, thought provoking films like My Brother.. Nikhil and ‘I Am’ is back with this promising directorial venture, which was in fact the first script he ever wrote. He shared the trailer of Shab on his twitter and wrote, “ @ShabTheFilm – my first script. Catch a glimpse into their lives, filled with dreams and secrets. #ShabTrailer out now.”

Raveena Tandon, who is on a roll after playing the vengeance seeking school teacher in ‘Maatr’ last month, is back with Shab. She said ,”I really wanted to do something challenging and fun. I opted for Shab because Onir is a dear friend and the character which I am playing in the film is something which I didn’t do earlier. It’s a role of a diva but has shades of grey in it and in the film I walk a very thin line between positive and negative.”
Incidentally, the script of Shab which Onir wrote about 13-14 years ago, was written originally with Raveena Tandon and Sanjay Suri in mind.
Cast and Crew:
Producers: Sanjay Suri, Bhavna Talwar, Mohan T. Mulani and Onir for Anticlock Films , WSG Pictures and Surya Entertainment.

One thing that stands out in the trailer, apart from the high octane emotions and terrific performances, is the music of the film, which has been composed by Mithoon. The music stays with you long after the trailer is over and that indicates a job, well done!
The film hit screens on June 30th 2017.
