The film has an inerrant blend of suspense, mystery and thrill, set in the Western Film Noir world and promises to be an immersive experience for its audience.
Talking about the film, Anil Kapoor says, “Harshvarrdhan has a very unique approach and his choices of films are also very distinct. The film was brought to me by Harshvarrdhan and he was very passionate about the project and he played an integral part in this film coming together. The story strikes the perfect balance between gritty and slick, grainy and smooth, fast paced yet nuanced. It is Harshvarrdhan’s first film as producer and I could see the passion in him from the word go. Thar is an experience and I can't wait for audiences to watch it!"
The film also marks Harshvarrdhan Kapoor's debut as a producer. Talking about how Thar came into being, Harshvarrdhan shared, "When I read Thar, I realised right away that it was unique in terms of its mood atmosphere and tone as well as in its narrative. I was aware that I was in a situation where I’d have to preserve to get what was on the page onto screen without any compromise. With a film so ambitious, there was bound to be great learning both in front of and behind the camera for me personally. I believe that out of the few films I’ve done so far Thar has been the most educational experience for me. We’ve tried to do something different and are excited to share it with audiences around the world with Netflix."
