The film is about a smart and suave young man who’s rising up in the corporate ladder but discovers that he has a heart ailment and requires a heart transplant. What might have been a safe surgery turns into a nightmare for the young man because of a phenomenon known as Anesthesia Awareness, in which a patient retains his consciousness despite being anesthetized before the operation.
The trailer of Heartless opens on a rather cheesy note. “Mere marne ke baad, mera dil nikaal lena. Hai kisi aur ki amanat, kahin saath jal na jaye,” Adhyayan Suman’s voiceover is followed by shots of him driving luxury cars in Dubai and wooing a pretty girl. Deepti Naval plays his caring mom. Newcomer Ariana Ayam plays his love interest. Shekhar Suman plays the heart surgeon.
Talking about the film, Shekhar Suman had said earlier, “The film will be a mother-son relationship, a thriller and also a love story with a positive message.”
Suman lost his son Aayush to congenital heart disease in 1994. Adhyayan was just a kid back then. The movie ‘Heartless’ is their tribute to Aayush.
The film is slated to release on February 7. Check out its trailer below:
