The film tells the story of a doctor on death row who claims to have discovered a permanent cure for any virus-based disease and stars Kay Kay Menon and Nivedita Bhattacharya. It was made for the Star Plus television series Star Bestsellers and was first telecast in 1999. .
There was once a time when Indian television wasn’t all about saas-bahu dramas and inane reality shows. The budgets were far lower back then but the ideas worked upon were far superior from those of today. Star Bestsellers belongs to that specific time in the history of Indian television. It’s not just coincidence that Tigmanshu Dhulia, Anurag Kashyap, Irrfan Khan, Kay Kay Menon, Imtiaz Ali and many other names that we associate with good filmmaking were involved in the series.
