  • Kiara Advani leads cast of Netflix’s next Indian movie
  • Karan Johar produced, Ruchi Narain directed Guilty movie

Netflix India is kicking off March with Guilty, its next original movie led by Kiara Advani — of Kabir Singh fame — who plays a songwriter girlfriend looking for the truth after her college heartthrob boyfriend is accused of rape by a less popular small-town student. Guilty is Advani's second association with Netflix after the 2018 romantic anthology film Lust Stories, in which she played a sexually-unsatisfied school teacher in the segment directed by Karan Johar. Johar is in fact a producer on Guilty through his banner Dharmatic, the digital arm of Dharma Productions.

For Johar and Netflix, Guilty will be their fifth collaboration after the aforementioned Lust Stories, the inexcusably terrible action film Drive in November last year; starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez; a Mrunal Thakur, Avinash Tiwary-starrer short in the horror anthology film Ghost Stories — released at the start of the year — deemed the weakest by critics, and the cringe-worthy dating reality show What The Love? With Karan Johar at the end of January.

For the world's biggest streaming service, Guilty will be the eighth original from India in 2020, after the aforementioned Ghost Stories, directed by Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, Anurag Kashyap, and Johar; the Jharkhand-based phishing drama series Jamtara in January; the Vir Das stand-up special, For India, on Republic Day; the aforementioned What The Love?; the romantic drama series Taj Mahal 1989 on Valentine's Day; the Sooni Taraporevala-directed dance drama Yeh Ballet in February; and the Amit Tandon stand-up special, Family Tandoncies, at the end of February.

From Westworld to The Mandalorian, TV Shows to Watch in March

Netflix's Guilty might be a tad confusing for those outside India, as that was also the international title for the 2015 Meghna Gulzar film, Talvar — also on Netflix. Naturally, the two have nothing in common except the name. From cast to release date, here's all you need to know about Netflix's next Indian movie, Guilty.

Guilty Netflix release date, time

Guilty is out Friday, March 6 at 1:30pm IST on Netflix in India and across the world.

Guilty Netflix trailer

Netflix released the first and only trailer for Guilty in mid-February, which introduced the primary characters and set up the film's plot.

Advani plays Nanki Dutta, the aforementioned songwriter part of a band called Doobydo Crew. Gurfateh Singh Pirzada (Friends in Law) plays her boyfriend and fellow bandmate, Vijay “VJ” Pratap Singh. Newcomer Akansha Ranjan Kapoor plays the aforementioned small-town girl, Tanu Kumar, who accuses VJ of rape.

Taher Shabbir (Nisha Aur Uske Cousins) has an undisclosed supporting role, though the Guilty trailer suggests he's playing some sort of investigator or lawyer who's looking into the rape case. Dalip Tahil (Mission Mangal) is also part of the Guilty cast, as seen in the trailer.
