Inspired by Hollywood's Die Hard movie, Sunil Kumar Desai's Nishkarsha is arguably one of his finest in his career. Produced under the banner of B C Patil's Srushti Films, the thriller ran to packed houses for several weeks and it is still one of the most popular movies, which is frequently aired on the small screen on demand.

With the then available technology and overcoming the logistic challenges, Nishkarsha surprised everyone with its exemplary output. Later, it was even remade in Telugu.
Insofar as the casting is concerned, Dr. Vishnuvardhan is a treat to watch as Commando Ajay who leads the operation. Every other character etched by Mr. Desai is done to perfection. So, mark the date on your calendars, as Nishkarsha is coming back big time at a theatre near you on September 20.
